Everything is always quality, the food, service and atmosphere. All the staff is always friendly and welcoming. We had a great view by the window but really every table where we have been seated is good. We especially love the corn fritters. The Dirty Martini was delish!

We came for Sunday brunch and were seated immediately upon arriving. I had the Cuban sandwich, and it was a delicious traditional Cuban. My son had the Chipotle Chicken sandwich, and the honey chipotle sauce made for an outstanding bite. My wife ordered the Woo Pig sandwich, and it was the star. I can’t wait to return so I can order one for myself!

About the restaurant
The Capital Bar & Grill may be the embodiment of Capital’s Southern Comfortable culinary vision focusing on provincial comfort food with a particular emphasis on the bounty of Arkansas. The tools of the bar include the most sought-after liquors, mixers and ingredients. In sort of a back-to-the-future twist, it has been a devotion to handmade classic and custom cocktails (the Aviation vs. the Cropduster) that has established Capital Bar as a nationally-regarded spirits destination. All this said, we strive to create a fun, relaxing experience for all of our guests: The friendly atmosphere is especially suited to business lunches, after-work drinks and get-togethers, as well as special date nights.

BBQ flatbread pizza was incredible. Even though it’s a million degrees outside, I ordered the brisket chili and it will easily become a winter staple for me. Highly recommend.
