A nice casual restaurant with outstanding food. A large menu with something for everyone's taste. A typical Cameron Mitchell restaurant with outstanding service by wait staff. Has parking, handicapped accessible.

I've eaten here several times and always get well prepared food and professional services. This visit I had the iceberg wedge with fresh made bleu cheese and buffalo chicken soup. Will go again soon and often.

Our server did a good job at making sure we had drink refills, but was sloppy and spilled my water all over. The atmosphere was relaxing and the restaurant was clean. The food was average, but the price was high.More

Cap city has a great great free menu! I chose the cheeseburger & fries. The burger came on a gluten free bun and they have a separate fryer for the fries. Before the meal, the waiter brought out gluten free rolls, as well. The food...More

This is what you think of for a diner. The food was excellent as well as the service. What a great atmosphere to enjoy your dinner. We plan on coming back to it on our next visit to Columbus.

Cap City is a place to be comfortable. Wear what you like and you will fit right in. I've seen shorts and suits on the same visit.

Welcome to Cap City Fine Diner
As with any diner, you feel immediately comfortable and at ease. Like no other diner, it’s artsy and cool.

The Cap City menu follows suit, with recognizable favorites like meatloaf receiving unexpected and delightful upscale twists, alongside trendier chef-driven dishes with big flavors. Desserts at this Cameron Mitchell Restaurant are retro cool, taste better than you remember and are showstopper sized.
