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.

To start out, our waitstaff was one of the best we have ever had. We started our meal with the blue cheese potato chips which were loaded with the three toppings, but because the chips were so crispy, the dish did not become soggy. There was plenty for the four of us to share. A highlight of our meal. The... More

Very upscale. Nice decor, wine list, attentive service. Would almost say it's diner themed restaurant except for the fact that really good diner food is the highlight of the menu - namely meatloaf, mac & cheese, pork chops, mashed potatoes etc. I'd call it "smart casual". An overstuffed meatloaf sandwich with a glass of Prosecco. How can you beat it?

We visited this place on a busy saturday night and parking was a premium. My husband and I were seated at the bar stools that face right into the kitchen and it made it that much harder to pick from all of the awesome dishes on the menu. Every time I new order came up I tended to change my... More

A colleague recommended this restaurant. Parking seemed limited. Cars were parked in a nearby alley, though we found parking right in front of the door. The restaurant is currently being remodeled. The pecan crusted pork chops were amazing! The mashed potatoes were among the best I've ever eaten. 1 plate was enough to feed 2 people. It was 2 thick-cut... More

My boyfriend, his mother, and I went to lunch at Cap City and received the best service from a restaurant that we've ever had in our lives. The diner itself is very cute and has a cool aesthetic. The food is very good. My boyfriend got the fish and chips and raved about it. His mother got the Crab Crusted... More

Came here for lunch with a work colleague and was pleased with the large variety of menu items available. Ordered the lemon Caesar salad with grilled salmon. Very tasty and fresh. Terrific service. Outside dining available during summer months.

Please go here if you get the chance. The Maytag and Blue Cheese Chips may sound odd, but they are so good! If you're a fruit infused vodka fan, definitely get the Finlandia infused with pineapple. Divine! Great place to dine.

We went to Cap City for lunch and three of us chose the seasonal special, Thanksgiving Sandwich. It was delicious lightly grilled bread with turkey, dressing, and cranberry mayo. Served with a side of gravy for dipping AND a side of mashed taters and gravy. I'm a faithful Cap City meatloaf girl. But today, I changed! This sandwich was fabulous!!

A recommendation by a local family, we decided to try this diner for dinner. I was a little surprised by the number of people in the place, but that should have been a clue as to what was to come. Great fast, but not rushed, service and our server had a great sense of humor which added to the very... More
