Having no prior knowledge of the Cap Tavern, we stopped, (4 adults,2 children) due to the convenient proximity to where we parked for the Art Museum. Was about 1:30 pm on a Sunday afternoon. The front of the restaurant was full, they sat us in the side dining room. Atmosphere, what a pub should be, rustic, TV's broadcasting different things,... More

Game day in downtown Denver...Cap City Tavern, in the heart of Buffalo and Bronco territory, to the rescue! Located across the street from the Denver Art Museum is a friendly bar with the red N flag flying proudly! They take reservations before kickoff; once the game starts, those tables are fare game (oops, bad pun). We were able to snag... More

We just ate dinner at Cap City tonight for dinner. We were in a time crunch on the way to the circus and picked the closest place to us. They don't have a children's menu so one one my sons had to order a $14 pizza, and the other had to order a $12 burger. My wife and I shared... More

They accommodate you here. The mac & cheese is excellent & the service is amazing. Heather puts up with all of our tabs & always remembers us & takes special care of all of us. We have reserved the back patio & the inside pool room area.

Great bar, but stay away from the food. Greasy filled tacos, under or over done pizza, same with the burgers, bread and buns are usually stale, and salads are wilted. If not for the TV/Sports and decent drinks I would not bother....

Walked in to this place to eat and watch the Germany match on TV- they didn't have the sound on but stayed and had food anyway. Had a mimosa bar which is definitely a plus and I had the breakfast tacos and my friend had the Diablo Benedict. Both were great- the highlight- the tortillas were FRESHLY MADE. Would definitely...

Friday afternoon meeting out early, I'd rather have a beer than go back to work. Too I had a "coordination meeting" with my friend over a cold brew on the patio with some very nice tempura vegetables. Happy hour started at 4 with a dollar off appetizers and beers. Good deal all around.

The restaurant is nice to stop by for a quick bite and visit with friends. I've been for lunch with co-workers and the service is good and fairly fast. The food is decent, nothing I'd highlight but portions are good.

Excellent, fast friendly service in a cozy, relaxed atmosphere. The make your own Bloody Mary bar was wonderful with lots of options for personal choices. So fun. We loved the bacon and shrimp sandwich on freshly baked bread and the salted caramel budino for dessert. Pure heaven. Played a little pool and enjoyed the outdoor dinning option. There were so...

We actually went to pour out a little liquor for the passing of Prince Rogers Nelson. We got more than we expected. Quesadillas, sweet habenero wings, & new york cheesecake were way to delicious to be at a bar. The music was awesome and so was the staff. Service, prices, & music were great. If you are staying at The... More
