Welcome to Capital City Chop House!

For decades, the Chop House has obsessed over one thing: quality. We start with the best steaks, seafood and chops we can find, cook them exactly to your liking, then inspect every plate twice before serving you. At every turn, we pay special attention to the details. It’s these little details that all melt together to make a truly extraordinary meal.

We believe premium ingredients are only as good as the chefs who prepare and cook them. We also believe a legendary menu falls flat without legendary service to serve it up. So whether it’s a business lunch, happy hour or date night, join us for a bona fide meal made the right way — all in an atmosphere where you can relax and be yourself.

Capital City Chop House sits right outside of Raleigh, making it easily accessible from most places in the Triangle. It’s within striking distance of Research Triangle Park, and it’s just a stone’s throw from RDU Airport.

    Helen was our server. She was very cordial and knowledgeable on all aspects of the cocktails and food served - her service was outstanding! The steaks were prepared to perfection, the salads were delicious, and the crème brûlée was great. We arrived at 5:15 with reservations, asked for a quiet booth and were seated in a room which we basically had to ourselves. A little cold, but otherwise perfect. The dining experience was memorable and we will definitely return again, and ask for Helen's section.

    While somewhat more expensive then say Firebirds, for a special dinner celebration it's an appealing choice. My only criticism is there is no "dress code" - diners may be in shorts and t-shirts, which is in my opinion, in appropriate.

    The food was well enjoyed with good fast service. Cooked oysters were meager in size and general over-grilled. Half shell oysters were excellent. Steaks were overall cooked to temperature. Sides portions were generally too small. The service towards the end appeared rushed as if we were approaching a shift end @ 9 pm. Pushed to pay and also no espresso possible because equipment failure. Overall a waning experience compared to the last five years.

    It had been a long time since we had eaten here so decided it was time to pay another visit. It took a couple of minutes to get seated, seemed like the manager wanted to do the hostesses job for her and wasn't sure what table we were supposed to be at until he let her do her job. Once seated, our drink orders were taken. Our waitress was prompt and friendly. The menu is pretty standard for a steakhouse. One thing we noticed right off about the menu was that every page had the statement that sharing a meal will incur and $5 charge. Not sure the reasoning for this, but it's only $5. (my wife and I always split a meal because neither of us can finish a whole meal by ourselves). I ordered a bowl of crab bisque, it was very tick and good, although, not much crab in it. For our entre we got the ribeye, side salad and baked potato. While we waited we got a basket of warm rolls and soft butter. Then our meal came out, they took it upon themselves to cut our steak and potato in half and and gave us each a half. I really don't like when they don't ask us to do this, because that's not how we split our meal. But, the steak was tender and cooked perfectly and the potato was also very good. We were too full for desert and had to take some of the steak and potato home. Except for the 2 minor issues it was a good meal. There a lot of restaurants in there area that we haven't tried, so may be a while before we come back, but we will eventually.

    Chop House used to be outstanding, but I was quite disappointed this last visit. I brought 3 colleagues who had never been, talked up what a great restaurant it was and felt a little embarrassed that it did not live up to it's historical performance. The server was curt, when I asked for a minor substitution due to an allergy (plain baked potato instead of mashed potatoes), I got a sharp, "no substitutions!" The server eventually made it happen, but could have been handled better. The server also talked up their 30-day dry aged rib-eyes but neglected to mention the price. The $70 price tag (each, we ordered 3) was outrageous, especially considering they were mediocre at best. I used to dine here weekly for lunch meetings, I don't think I'll return any time soon.

    Capital City Chop HouseResponded on May 31, 2022Hi HeidiB, Thank you for the feedback and for providing us a review. It seems a few things not within our standards were done here. For that we apologize, we just want to reach out to you privately to get some more information so that we may address and fix the problem; as no guest should ever have bad service or sticker shock. All the best, Crystal T.

    Haven’t been in 2 years but it was an excellent choice for this trip. A couple of menu items were unavailable including Caesar salad (no dressing …) but filet and mushrooms were great. Key Lime pie a welcome find as most steak houses seem to not offer it. Excellent, engaging service. Looking forward to a return visit.

    Our Reservation was at 6:15 and we were greeted graciously by the host and seated promptly. While the staff was quite friendly, although it appeared as there was some sort of distraction going on as they were not as attentive as previous visits that night. We have 5 at our table and the food arrived after quite a wait and a bit cool. My steak was wonderful, but with one of the dishes (Scallops and Shrimp) my guest told me the shrimp was overcooked and rubbery. We paid our bill and departed at 8:40, said our goodbye's and I returned to the restaurant to visit the mens room before my drive home. The door was locked! After rattling it a bit, one of the hosts came out and told me they were closed for the evening. She mentioned the dishwasher broke and they ran out of plates.

    Food and service were both subpar for a restaurant like this. Waitress was not personable and did not check up on our table very frequently. Seemed like she was ready to have us gone. It was a letdown for a $250 meal for 2, especially in comparison to say a Ruth’s Chris, Capital Grille or Perry’s….not even close.

    Food was not brought out in correct order. Example- mushrooms with steak were brought out 15 minutes prior to dinner. No butter served with lobster side. Drinks were not refilled but empty. Staff was inattentive and visited the table infrequently. I think this restaurant is extremely disappointing for the money charged. I will not be coming back unless they make it right for me.

    We go to Cap City Chop House when we want a great steak in a nice atmosphere without a lot of noise. It’s worth the drive to near RDU. This week it was for Mothers Day and the location is midway between us and our son’s home so perfect. They aren’t usually open on Sundays but opened for MD. We had a 6:30 reservation which due to staffing they asked us to move to 6:00. Our waiter Ryan had been there since 11 am and was still cheerful, and considerate and provides great service. We only knew he’d been working a long shift because we asked. The appetizers were great - we did bruschetta and crab dip. The steak was perfect. Very pleased with our decision to meet there for Mothers Day. The bartender also knows how to make a solid Manhattan for bonus points

    Mother’s Day dinner was such a limited menu. 5 entrees. They were out of the soup, so just salad and it featured bagged cheddar grated cheese as the main topping. There were 3 asparagus spears with your dinner and bland, cold mashed potatoes. The table for 3 we reserved was a table for 2. The steaks were well cut and cooked as ordered. The bruschetta app never arrived. The steaks came out with the salad. The bread came at the end. Weird order of service. Left feeling like I made a terrible choice for restaurant venue. Can’t recommend another restaurant emphatically enough. Any other restaurant.

    Crab dip was awesome but I had a bad experience with my crab cakes. I asked for NO SAUCE of any kind. I got something brown on my crabcakes. I sent them back and the kitchen turned them over on the grill and sent them back. I ate one and wondered why I didn’t feel so great anymore. I was not happy. The service was good and the restaurant ambiance was still nice. I will go back but that wasn’t good

    The ambiance was very nice. We were excited to eat there. We first ordered the raw oysters as an appetizer. That was a bit disappointing. It did not taste fresh. For our entree we ordered the shrimp and scallop rigatoni - that was decent, the pasta was cooked el Dante but the scallops had no flavor. We also ordered the Chilean seabass which was cooked well and had a nice light flavor to it. We were disappointed with the side of asparagus however. The lower half of the asparagus still had a lot of the fiber on it and made it extremely hard to chew/eat it. The third entree was the lobster tail. I think it was either over cooked or it was not fresh/previously frozen because the lobster meat was really tough and dry. Overall it was a very mixed experience for us not worth the price of the menu.
