About Capital City Chophouse

For the past 11 years, customers have been streaming into the Capital City Chop House citing the delicious food, the great service and the good value. Why is it that many guests return to the Chop House so often that the staff are able to greet them by name? It’s because the restaurant maintains a level of quality and consistency- thanks to the credentialed chefs and experienced wait staff- that diners have come to depend on. Perhaps the most important constant at the Chop House is the Certified Angus Beef Brand; considered the “royalty of beef.” Less than 8% of all beef makes the CAB grade, yet the Chop House serves only CAB across the board, from center-cut steaks to burgers. The Chop House philosophy is to let its delicious steaks speak for themselves, seasoning them with a simple grating of tricolored peppercorns. The Chop House serves only the highest quality of products available; join us for lunch or dinner. Private banquet rooms are available.

 (Washington DC)·Dined on August 30, 2014

Made a note via Opentable that it was our wedding anniversary. We were greeted at the door with a "Happy Anniversary" by the person who appeared to be the manager. Our server Brandon also noted our anniversary in a very sincere manner and took very good care of us throughout our evening. We were given free dessert as well which was a very nice gesture. Everything we ordered was exactly as it should have been, good crabcakes and prime rib cooked to order.

Capital City Chophouse continues to serve some of the best steaks in the Triangle. The food is cooked to perfection and flavorful, but not overly priced. It's a great deal compared to other local steak restaurants. The atmosphere is always pleasant, and the staff is well versed and prepared to make recommendations. Also, the staff takes pride in providing outstanding customer service. Even those preparing and cooking the food inquired of our meal, and genuinely wanted to know if we enjoyed every bite. We can't wait to go back.

I really was very pleased with this whole experience. We had some of our party hung up in traffic and one needing to leave early. The server was wonderful! We felt relaxed and well attended to without interruption and intrusion into our conversation. Food was terrific, and server was aware of the time issues. Would definitely go back again.

 (Atlantic City)·Dined on August 23, 2014

I have to say we love our steak and we went to the Chophouse on a friends's recommendation. The place was empty the ambiance was old and we were very disappointed in our food. Our steaks were over cooked and served on a cold plate. Our sweet potato mash was inedible we think instead of cinnamon they put cayenne pepper. We brought it to the waiters attention and he mentioned that it has a hint of cayenne pepper but when you sweat eating it there is something wrong. We actually over heard another table complain about the same thing. Our dessert took over 15 mins we think longer than our steaks. Overall the place was empty we were in and out and finished with our dinner in 1hr 10min - disappointed

Food and atmosphere were fantastic. Just the kind of place you would want to take a client too. Also great place to treat your wife on one of those special occasions. Have to try the tuna appetizer as well as the calamari. Steaks were cooked perfect. Bartender makes a mean martini.

Every time I crave red meat, I go to the Chophouse. No steakhouse makes filet mignon and prime rib the way they do, not even the overrated and overpriced Ruth's Christie. The bernaise is perfect. The wedge is superb and satisfying with chopped tomatoes and ample bacon (perfect for two). I always leave happy. I also love that it's a casual and friendly place. No need to get all dolled up. All in all, a wonderful experience.

 (Atlanta)·Dined on July 9, 2014

Pleasant hostess. The good news ends there. Worst service we’ve had in 10 years. Openly mocked us for ordering seafood ‘Did you see the sign on the outside of the building, it says chop house’. Never asked if we needed refills on wine or water. (Both glasses were empty.) Never checked on the table but did have time to laugh with friends. No offer for dessert or coffee, just dropped the check and walked away. The food itself was the single worst meal we’ve eaten in 5 years. The décor’ was bad circa 1980’s. (Green paint, worn wood, tattered carpet.) The manager seemed to only be going through the motions. The only reason we didn’t speak with someone while there, was it was obvious no one cared. That's what $100 will get you.

A little out of the way, I've gone here at scattered special occasions throughout the last decade. I'm not sure why it wasn't busier... Maybe because it was July 2nd. The food is just delicious. I had lamb chops which were very good and perfectly cooked. My wife had the sirloin which was extremely high quality although a touch under done. We really liked the caesar salads. Sides were good and the mile high chocolate cake was enough for four people!
It's not cheap, but the decor is more suitable for a nice dinner than the Angus Barn and I didn't feel nickled and dimed like Ruth Chris. We plan to go here more often.

We had a group of 9 and were approached quickly by our waitress. We had our drinks quickly. We ordered apps and had those quickly and the salads and soups followed timely after that. Then we experienced a very long wait until our entrées were delivered. There was no update during the wait and no apologies that the entrees were late. All the food was excellent though.

We went to celebrate our anniversary and were not disappointed. I had told them we were celebrating and they pulled out all the stops to make it personal for us. The food was excellent and perfectly cooked all around. My only regret is that I didn't order the mile high chocolate cake and take it home.

I wouldn't go back or recommend to anyone. Service was really bad and for the price the food so, so. We waited a long time for our salads, than the meal came right after our salads were serviced, Couldnt get a second drink if we stood on our chairs with a loud speaker. Than during our meal they said we need to order desert now because the kitchen was closing (9:30). We skipped the desert, paid and left and went someplace else for coffee and desert.

While dining with 3 friends at Capital City Chophouse, I requested a very simple modification to the menu item-no potatoes on my plate. This threw them for a loop and when I received my meal my 3 friends were within a few bites of being finished. The wait person blamed the kitchen (what a team player), but most of all the head waiter and manager, while offering apologies for ruining our meal, refused to offer any accommodation. While I wasn't expecting them to comp the meal, priced as if in NYC, a free cup of coffee, desert, or glass of wine would have cost them virtually nothing. This group apparently has little training in service. Failure to attempt to recover from service failure leads to loss of customers-like me.

My husband and I have been to Capital City Chophouse about 5 times over the years. We have always enjoyed both the food and the service. This time, our server was John, who did a wonderful job. He recommended several dishes, but my favorite was the Key Lime Pie. t was fantastic!.
We are looking forward to coming back for a 6th time. Also, making a reservation through Open Table is such an easy thing to do.

We had dinner here Friday night and were happy that they still have the Friday and Saturday night prime-rib special, which my husband and I both got. It was cooked perfectly. The salads were also very good....Caesar for me, garden with blue-cheese dressing (full of chunks of cheese) for my husband. We chose onion rings for our second side. (The prime-rib comes with 2 sides for $29.95... a great deal.) I'm always saying I'm going to try something else on the menu for dinner, but can't resist the prime-rib, which I rarely make at home...no pun intended). We also enjoy having lunch here. The decor reminds me of a gentlemen's club from back in the day....all plaids and dark woods...very atmospheric. One of our favorite places to eat!

I usually come here for lunch or dinner with business associates. Always a good meal. Service is excellent. This time the steak was a little under-done, but otherwise everything else was up to par.

I always get the Crab Bisque, so I highly recommend it. I also recommend the chopped salad with Ahi Tuna.
