Stop for a drink at snack after exploring the Capital. Sat at the bar, enjoyed a glass of wine & shared a bread pudding. Service was average, it was particularly lacking when we were ready to leave & wanted our bill.

Business colleague and I walked over to Capitol Grille since a) it was close to downtown Hilton and b) the hotel shuttle driver recommended it. Both of us have eaten wonderful food in Baton Rouge and were looking forward to the same. But as soon as we saw the menu we knew we had chosen wrong. Very very few Louisiana... More

Need to be a little more accommodating, we have tried several times and any time we have had more than 10 people we have been turned away. We like the food and environment and definitely the location is very convenient.

We decided to eat at Capital City Grill since it was across the street from Hotel Indigo we were staying in. The service was very attentive, we were seated at a table with a great view of the bridge with a setting sun and downtown area of Baton Rouge. We started with the Banger Shrimp for an appetizer, they were... More

Good menu selection: burgers, salads, local fare. Had a nice selection of the local beers. Staff friendly and I received my food promptly. Ordered the chicken sandwich.

Like, seriously. These pork chops are the best thing I've ever put in my mouth. Mind-blowingly good!

Stopped by here after dinner for a drink with hubby. Wonderful friendly staff (thanks Austin), and amazing happy hour with generous offerings Monday through Fridays 4-7. Half off apps, five dollar martinis, two dollar domestic beer, three dollar house wines and well liquors. It's worth stop in!

We dined here with family and had a pleasant experience overall, but weren't impressed by the food. Service was friendly and efficient. We started with the spinach and artichoke dip and were pleased with the flavor, but it was small for more than two people. The fish tacos sounded great but were overcooked, lacked seasoning, and were very dry. They're... More

Sitting at the Capital City Grill eating the best Red Beans and Rice that I have ever had with the Mississippi River just over the levee, it was easy to imagine life as it was in old Baton Rouge. Service was very good although I have to say it was late for lunch hour. I learned from my friend that... More
