Had lunch with a colleague and choose this place because I remembered a moist chocolate cake I had there a few years back. We were seated quickly and by a very friendly hostess. But the atmosphere was loud which made it difficult to hear each other. The service was very efficient, the food came out piping hot. Unfortunately the food... More

Cap City is one of my Columbus favorites, has been for years. I've been there probably a couple dozen times, and have always gotten the same thing - their meatloaf. It's fantastic. I'm so fanatical about it I've made a mean clone of it at home. The meatloaf, the potatoes, the onion straws...YUM!!! Great portion sizes, reasonably priced. Treat yourself... More

We were unsure about going because of the diner reference, but we are so glad we ate here. Definitely not a diner but a nice, midscale restaurant. We sat at the bar due to 40-minute wait. The bar staff, especially Starla, were incredibly kind and attentive. Starla chose an awesome glass of wine for me, a Pinot Gris, and suggested... More

We have eaten at the other Cap City Diner on the East side of town and thought we would give the one near OSU a try. The food was excellent as was the food at the other restaurant. The only problem was finding it. We had to stop a pedestrian and ask for directions. The entrance to the restaurant is... More

This is one of my favorite places. It never disappoints. They have a great, reasonably priced menu of good food. Nothing is better than the decadent Maytag blue cheese potato chips. House made chips smothered in Alfredo sauce and blue cheese are served hot out of the oven. I always go for the Romano crusted chicken. Huge portion and I... More

We eat at Cap City with friends at least once a month if not more. The food has always been great. We've tried the fish & chips, several of the chicken dishes, meatloaf, and several desserts. If you like carrot cake, you have to try it! Wonderful! Haven't ever had a bad experience here. You can't go wrong! Reservations on... More

Good diner but nothing fancy. Was expecting more from a Cameron Mitchell restaurant. The food we ordered was good but nothing special. We will probably not be back.

If you're looking for great diner food, this is your place. We had a group of five and everybody's meal was very good. It is what you would expect in a diner. Staff was friendly and attentive. Alcohol is available which is different than many other diners.

We met our daughter and husband here for a Sunday Brunch. Boy were we surprised. The place opened at 11:00am, and by 11:30 is was packed. The menu has lot's of options, offering both a brunch menu and a lunch menu. We had drinks from the bar, which were very good. Our service was great, and all four of the... More
