This was an excellent dinner. Loved the filet mignon. Loved the Brussel sprouts. The spinach salad was average. Wine by the glass was good quality. The service was very good.

This would probably be my favorite restaurant if I lived in Milwaukee. First night service was awkward but it was last hour before closing on a weekend; perfect service the 2nd night. Very nice environment but not at all pretentious. Food start to finish was excellent, and I mean excellent. Quality steaks and generously cut. Only thought is that their... More

Met family here to grab a great steak dinner and was not disappointed. My wife had a NY with poached lobster on top. I had a nicely seared Porterhouse. My nephew had a ribeye and my niece had a NY au poivre. All were superior cuts. Only disappointment was the creamed spinach. It was sans the cream and under-seasoned. Ruth... More

Wow...I wish that all of my steaks for the rest of my life are grilled just like this. Words cannot describe how wonderful their steaks are. The only compliant in my case is the price. I think they lost the touch with the regular people. Between three of us, the dinner cost us $300. Nothing major. Steaks, sides and a... More

Capital Grille’s across the nation – always very good food. Salads and filet alike specially prepared, and watch out for the dessert. Better than “relations.” The service is generally very good, except at this one in Milwaukee. I was by myself, so both times I dined at the bar area. Food great. Service sucked. The female server (sorry, I cannot... More

Our entire evening was perfect. Enjoyed the Generous Pour wine flight (7 wines for $28, including a Stag's Leap). Our food was perfectly prepared (bone-in fillet, rare). Our server was very knowledgeable (recently joined them from high-end restaurants in DC area), friendly and available. Would recommend the restaurant to everyone. We will be returning.

Had the King Crab Leggs and they were delicious! Others had prime rib, salmon, white fish. There were 15 of us and the waiter (s) was excellent and so was the creme brola. Capital Grill is within walking distance to where we were staying.

It has been some time since I have visited a Capital Grille. Being close to the incredible but ubiquitous steakhouses in Chicago, it was nice to visit The Capital Grille. It has a clubhouse feel without the chain feel. We started with drinks at the bar. Our very capable and friendly bartender was very pleasant. We then proceeded to the... More

Capital Grille itself has a standard of excellent service. This is one of the best Capital Grills I have been too. Their coordination and desire to serve is second to none. It is a great place for a business lunch no matter how fast or slow it needs to be.

Thank LagerD
