For my birthday we celebrated dinner @ The captain grill last night for the first time. When I say you won’t be disappointed, omg ! Our server Andrew was soooo polite and on point. He gave us the best experience I could ever ask for. The food was delicious and worth every penny. Hands down best big steak , lamb chops, calamari and lobster Mac & cheese . I recommend this amazing restaurant to All of you reading this. Thank you Captain Grill, it was a great experience and my husband and I will be back. ❤️💜😆 yummy 🤤
I was celebrating a promotion but it wasn’t acknowledged. I requested a lobster be available it wasnt. Very loud and crowded.
Birthday dessert and dinner was fabulous
We had a spectacular evening! Looking forward to coming back. 🥂
A really solid and worth while place for dinner. From a date night, special occasion or just a great steak. Have no reservation that they will treat you right and you will walk out with a happy full belly.
We had a most wonderful Anniversary dinner. Everything was perfect and appreciated - from the hearts scattered on the table and card to the ability to take our time to order and enjoy all the food and beverages. Our server Larissa was very personable and knowledgable. We were asked if we were ready to order the next course and if not it was no problem. And the food was just wonderful - the lobster/crab cakes were loaded with fresh "meat", the steaks done to perfection as well as the sides of au gratin potatoes, mushrooms and asparagus. Then came a wonderfully plated delicious Happy Anniversary dessert.
This was our first time trying this establishment for lunch. We would definitely do this again. The ribeye steak sandwich was outstanding. The right combination of everything, with a perfectly cooked tender ribeye. The bread was toasted just right, yet soft. Another member of our party had the cheeseburger, which was well seasoned, toasted bun and very flavorful. All the sandwiches came with truffle fries that were excellent. The last item our party had was the roasted chicken breast. It was the most delicious MOIST chicken breast ever. We certainly will be going back.
Excellent overall....food service was slower than usual, but nothing to bad. Server seemed newer so we just showed patience.
We were unable to get into Carneavor to celebrate our son’s birthday. He loves steak so after a search on the internet and some recommendations from coworkers, we decided on Capitol Grille. It was absolutely wonderful and certainly stood up to some of the best steak restaurants we’ve visited. It snowed with a winter advisory but we ventured out because it was a special occasion and it was worth the harrowing drive. Food was excellently prepared to our specifications. I was able to do a different cut for my order and the server gave us samples of the rubs and sauces. Our only criticism which was really a small one was that our server was a bit intrusive. On the other hand he explained the menu to us and gave great recommendations, so we were glad he was so knowledgeable. Highly recommend for a special meal.
Our dinner was fantastic! Angel was absolutely perfect! He made our whole experience so much better! We will ask for him now on! What a great evening!!!!
Excellent food and wonderful service!!
Dependable delicious food and service in an upscale clubby room.
Love sitting in the bar enjoying the vibrancy, great food and of course Scot’s Stoli Doli. This entire team is the epitome of what true warmth in hospitality feels like. Great way to close out 2021 and welcome the new year. Thank you Capital Grille team!
Excellent. Looking forward to our next visit.
Delicious food and attentive service!
Asked for a medium well bone in rib-eye and it came out bloody. Once they took it back and returned it to us it was overcooked and dry. Lobster Mac n cheese was also dry. The manager was really nice and understanding and gave us new steaks on the house.
Everything and everyone were amazing! Went for our anniversary, they had our table covered in heart confetti with a celebratory card. We also received complimentary champagne and a dessert platter. The lobster bisque was the best I’ve ever had, with ample lobster pieces in it. The parmesan truffle fries with the soy glazed Brussels sprouts were great. I had the lobster tails with tenderloin which were so flavorful while my husband had the dry aged NY strip au poivre with courvoisier cream that he stated was amazing as well. We’ve been to other high end steak places and Capital Grille is one of the best. Thank you for making our date night magical!
Great service and very good food
Emily S was a great waitress.

A pre holiday luncheon with my family
Always a perfect experience.
Always fantastic food and cocktails.
It was great
The service was bad in reference to my entree. I ordered the chefs special 16oz bone in filet and the actual order was ~75% bone and probably only at most 6oz of actual edible steak. I asked The server to take a look at it and she said it looked fine and had to remember that the bone accounted for probably ~3 oz. I said I know that but there’s barely any steak here for me to eat. She said she would get the chef to take a look and the chef never came, the just talked about it and glared over at my table a bunch. then the manager came over and I explained everything again that if I’m paying for a chef special 16oz bone in, the actual steak shouldn’t be 6oz. She basically was flustered and by this time my meal was cold and I didn’t want to ruin my wife’s birthday so she said they could comp the steak off the bill. They charged me full and weren’t even nice about it. Because of this, I won’t ever dine at this establishment again.
The entire experience was Great from the service to everyone's dinner.
I always enjoy dining here. The Pan-Fried Calamari with Hot Cherry Peppers is amazing. It was prepared to perfection as was our steak. While it is no longer on their menu, we requested the creamed corn and they were able to prepare it for us (that is above and beyond). To top off a wonderful evening the Crème Brûlée was rich and creamy!
This was our second visit. The first one in July 2021 was fabulous. This one not nearly as good. The chowder seemed to be devoid of clam flavor and clams. At 12$ a cup we were not impressed. The Parmesan truffle fries were the bottom of fryer…greasy and hard with no Parmesan coating. Last time they were perfect. The waiter seemed new ( everyone is at some time) but he was inattentive until he brought the check. We always tip 20% and we did but again this time our experience was disappointing. We will choose another steakhouse next time.
Great food and service.
Had a great lunch experience.
Great night out with my husband
The capital grille was everything I hoped it would be. It was my son's birthday and the staff was very nice and made him feel special. The food was delicious.
Service was prompt and attentive. Very pleased with food choices. Dress code was maintained.
Amazing food and close to the Milwaukee symphony stage. Don’t leave without trying the lobster bisque. Wow!
Reservations were on point as was the greeting and service. Irene made the birthday lunch special, as did the decorated table, greeting card, and birthday dessert. The Capital Grille does it so nicely with such great food and service.
Awesome dinner. Andy our server was great!
Great local for a business lunch. It is quiet enough to talk without feeling everyone is listening and the food and service are always outstanding.
