Yum! That's the word for here. Of course, the 50's - 60's ambience. Sausage patties - big. Pancakes - big. If you want healthy choices, my wife had the heart healthy omelette. The Amtrak Keystone Conductor said we must eat here. He did not let us down. So now when in Harrisburg, no big box,,,it's the Capitol Diner.

We come here whenever we visit my brother in Harrisburg. Yes, it's a diner but they do have good selections and the food is actually pretty tasty.

A very busy place but they do find you a place right away. The service is great and the food is great. You can't complain about the food. I rather eat here than any other diner in the area. Definitely will come back

Not clean service was not the best. Prices not for what you get but with the bad press they have gotten I'm not to inclined to go back there

My husband, sister and I went to Harrisburg to spend time with my son and grandson who is leaving for the Airforce. We made plans to go to IHOP. We got there at 10:15 a.m. and the place was mobbed, the people in the lobby waiting were rude. We decided to take our breakfast party of seven and headed over... More

Stopped in very early one morning to have breakfast. It had been a while since we were there. I was hungry, so I ordered the Steak and Eggs with home fries and toast. We're not talking some scrawny little piece of steak. It's a 10 oz. NY Strip. Cooked and seasoned perfectly. Eggs were done the way I like them... More

Yum! Excellent coffee, which is a must. The breakfast potatoes surprised me - much better than expected - delicious. My favorite, though, was the ham. Very clean, good food & great service - what else do you need? We will definitely be repeat customers, even though we don't live nearby.
