Stopped in on Monday, 10/23/17 during MNF when the Eagles were playing at home. Large crowd and it looked like the restaurant was a bit understaffed for the crowd they had. Food was excellent. Service a bit slow and out-of-sync, but understandable due to the...More

I always have a great experience at the Capital Grille. It is perfect for family occasions, but I also take clients here. Steak might be the main event, but their Lobster salad is also superb!

The Avenue of the Arts is the perfect avenue to dry aged steaks, too. Philadelphia Magazine declared The Capital Grille “a carnivore’s dream.” Top off your fabulous meal with dreamy Chocolate Espresso Cake or Crème Brulée. Then stroll it off on your way to Kimmel Center or the theatre.
