My colleague and I walked up the street from our hotel and this was the first non-chain restaurant we encountered. It was pretty full, so we were offered seats at the bar or at a "window." The bar was also full, so we grabbed two seats at a window looking into the kitchen. The kitchen was exciting and bustling. The... More

I heard a lot about Cap City with all the "best of" and what not before we finally made it here so I guess my expectations were too high. Also, it wasn't awful, just not to our taste. My partner had the Philly Steak, it was served open face with a ton of big red and green peppers slices. Philly... More

The beef stroganoff was delicious. Looking forward to tasting the rest of the blue-plate specials. Mussels were just right. We will go back.

Great place to meet friends or family for lunch or dinner. Casual and friendly atmosphere with a complete menu for all. Nice selections and great bar list. Fantastic service and desserts. A bit loud at times, but overall a great place.

Lots of choices at this Cameron Mitchell staple. Great menu of Americana, plus awesome salads and sandwiches. The meatloaf plate is fantastic, piled high on mashed taters, onion straws, and more. Portions are large and the service is excellent. The outdoor seating area is also fantastic, usually open March-November. Highly recommended for lunch.

Can't say enough good things here. Service excellent, food excellent, atmosphere excellent. For a chain, this is one that gives the feel of a local gem. Go. Enjoy.

Went there this past Sunday evening. Waitress was super friendly, but not too much - no hovering. Good service, water filled and orders for party of 5 were correct. I had the Sunday special of Beef Stroganoff - YUM! The noodles were nice and wide and full of beef flavor, very savory. The sauce/gravy was just enough to coat and... More

Cap City Diner has become our favorite Columbus restaurant. The service is outstanding. The menu has a wide variety but the meatloaf and pork chops top our list. Always have to finish with the delicious chocolate cake. Prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is very good.
