Loved both the Old Tavern Reuben and the Portabella Burger (but go with Reuben first). Their greek type salad was also the favorite of my wife and daughter but looks like that's not on the menu any more.

My wife and I have been here several times as a couple and in groups. The food is always awesome. Every item has a surprise that makes it a little different than run of the mill. They have a large selection of whiskies and scotches,...More

First off - the beer selection is VAST! The staff is knowledgable and happy to make suggestions and offer samples. The food is fresh and fun. The pork nachos are a favorite of ours - and a generous portion. Fun, quaint atmosphere for casual dining.

Old Capital has an extensive list of beers and adult beverages, is located in a historic building, and offers creative, delicious meals. I've tried the frog legs (which were huge and tasty) and some of their sandwiches. My favorite, by far, is their Reuben, which...More

Quaint tavern setting with helpful staff and an outstanding selection of beer on tap. Food is outstanding and their tap takeovers feature top shelf beer from first class breweries!

They have a small refined menu. The food is different and more unique and usually tastes really good. Service is not very good here. You often have to wait for everything. Plan for a hour to have dinner. Fish tacos is the most popular item.
