Nice atmosphere. Mondays have the best cheeseburger deals. Good drinks to go along with your meal. Get there early enough, you get a good seat and quick service to boot.

Thank you for reviewing us, Burger night on Mondays have been a guest favorite for over 10 years! We recently started serving pasture-raised, antibiotic and hormone free beef, all raised right here in Virginia! We except reservations on Monday night if you would like, just call us at 804-780-2537. Thanks again, Linzy Browne More

Visited twice in a week. First visit told there was a 45 minute wait for a table, which was fine as we hadn't booked. We were seated within 10 minutes so great as very busy. We had mussels for starters which were nothing to write home about, however, the mains of sirloin steak and burgers were really good. Service was... More

We went here for our valentines dinner before a play at the theater. We were seated promptly and the waiter was attentive. They had a huge group in the other room that absolutely slammed the kitchen. Unfortunately my meal was over cooked and before I could get a replacement we had to leave. Bernadette, the manager came over and not... More

I've tried to enjoy this restaurant but I just cannot go back there. I've had several experiences at the Capital Ale House in Midlothian that were beyond compare. One time my wife and I went there for drinks and dessert. We were seated and literally waited over thirty minutes before anyone even took a drink order. We waited another fifteen... More

Hey Daniel, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. Without feedback we would never improve.

Met friends and family here for an early dinner and a brew. All in all it was good, server could have been a bit more friendly (I won't call her out here), but was ok. Meals and beers were good, great selection of both. They also have discount growler fills on Thursdays. Oh, wings were good !

I do enjoy giving a great review to those who deserve it, but when I want to start with, "well, bless their hearts ........." and look for excuses, it probably won't be that. While in town for a volleyball tournament at Convention Center, we decided to take 7 people to lunch at Capital Ale House. It was 1:30pm when we... More

Hello Nonnie, Thank you for taking the time to share such helpful details. I will begin with an apology for the long wait. This is not a usual visit for our guests, as you mentioned we had a large group of 70 dining with us from the tournament at the Convention Center. This did slow down our kitchen production but...

We got off the freeway while driving through looking for a local brewery, but happened onto this place and decided it looked better. The place wasn't very full but it was early on New Years Day. We sat at the bar where the very friendly bar tender helped us find the type of beers we like. Because we like to... More

Thanks for the awesome review! Im glad you decided to visit us, as we pour more local craft beer than anyone else. The burger you had is called the smokehouse and is one of my personal favorites too.

Staff very friendly and helpful! Chelsea our waitress was exceptional. She went out of her way to make sure we ordered the correct hotness for our chicken wings and also the type of beer we like. She was friendly and took pride in her job and made sure we had a great meal. Appreciated her hospitality!

Stopped here, Midlothian location, after a movie on Christmas eve. If you love your beer, this place has an extremely large selection. The crispy cod tacos were ok and so was the black bean burger but really liked the crispy artichokes. Friendly service, nice menu.

Visited many times, even to a rehearsal dinner once. Love the ice slab on the bar to keep brews cold. Nice varied menu, all served fast and fresh. Incredible beer selection, obviously. Parking is a pain, but findable. Live music, too.
