Stopped for lunch during tourist stops. Fish tacos were decent, fries were a little over done. Free pretzels were a nice touch though.

Avoid this restaurant. We went there on a Wednesday night. First, I had to change my fork and knife… too dirty. I ordered a small Caesar salad and the Fish and Chip. The salad came with a unusual dressing that looks like lemon juice only...More

We ate at Capitol City brewing after visiting the Spy Museum. It is right across the street. The seating area is large with high ceilings and it is pretty clean. We had burgers/fries and beer. The food and beer were fine but the service was...More

We are here for a conference in Rockville. We went in and we're seated immediately. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu. We both got burgers medium well and it was soooo good! I definitely recommend this place and would return.

Food was brilliant as was the beer. Chicken wings were excellent, best we have ever tasted. The fish dip was yummy and we could have eaten another dish, but that might have been a bit greedy. The Capitol City Brewing Co is a must and...More

Capitol City Brewing Co. opened its doors in 1992 as the first brew pub in our nation's capitol since prohibition, thus giving its citizens and its many visitors the freedom to enjoy some of the finest hand-crafted beer in the country. On the front of our menu is the symbol of freedom, the Lady Liberty, a statue found atop our namesake, the United States Capitol.

Nestled in the heart of Washington's rejuvenated downtown, this location has become a local landmark for celebrating great beer and food with family and friends. We have always taken great pride in our beer so come in and enjoy a cold pint of our very best and match it to one of the many menu selections tailored to the brews we serve.
