The staff was nice but to me the food was just okay! Our meal was over cooked but service was with a smile. The cocktails were great.

Easily seated primetime on a Saturday for a reason. Food was average, beer selection limited and nothing special. Server was not good. Hourly bathroom cleaning checklist hadn't been initialed in 4 hours and you could tell.

Can’t go wrong with this one. Good atmosphere and the food was entirely tasty. Beer menu on target but nothing exceptional. Overall an excellent after work hang out spot.

My wife and I came upon this restaurant while out walking. It is located by our hotel. Great menu and many craft beer selections. We both ended up having entree salads. Very large portions. You won't be disappointed.

I am sorry for the late answer. Better go back by Uber if you want to go there to drink some pints. No metro station around, as I remember.

Capitol City Brewing Co. opened its doors in 1992 as the first brew pub in our nation's capitol since prohibition, thus giving its citizens and its many visitors the freedom to enjoy some of the finest hand-crafted beer in the country. On the front of our menu is the symbol of freedom, the Lady Liberty, a statue found atop our namesake, the United States Capitol.

Nestled in the heart of Washington's rejuvenated downtown, this location has become a local landmark for celebrating great beer and food with family and friends. We have always taken great pride in our beer so come in and enjoy a cold pint of our very best and match it to one of the many menu selections tailored to the brews we serve.
