Another great Cameron Mitchell Restaurant - the decor needs a little updating (which is supposedly happening). But the food and service is real good. In a hurry...we sometimes sit at the bar! You definitely have to get the Bleu Cheese Chips....that are ADDICTIVE!

Sat on the patio and visited with our friend. Had a good lunch, one Reuben, one cheesesteak and one cinnamon bun. Everything good, including the coffee and service was equally good. Would recommend.

This restaurant is a gem. Not surprised to find an upscale diner like this near a university. Comfort food, casual, wide variety of choices. I had the balsamic chicken. Excellent choice with fresh vegetables. Had a local beer suggested by our knowledgeable, friendly and funny...More

We always go on Tuesday. They have a killer chicken pot pie, best I have ever tasted. A bit pricey, around $16 but worth it. It's a trendy place, close to OSU, with great service. Anything you order will be good, which is why they...More

We enjoyed our meal at this Cap City Diner location. We used Open Table to make a reservation. Glad we did as it was busy. Neat design of the restaurant and friendly staff. They are known for their good old-fashioned comfort food. Their peanut butter...More

Stopped into Cap City on a recent Saturday after picking up in-laws from a delayed morning flight into Columbus. Even though it was mid afternoon Cap City still had some great "brunch" offerings. We started with the calamari appetizer which is still outstanding. The calamari...More

Visited while in Columbus as it was on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. The Pork chops were amazing and the service was great. The only negative was finding parking as I there at 5:30pm, however, there was parking by the time I left.

This is highly recommended by many natives and newcomers so we had to try it. Delicious food, great service. The deep dish apple pie lives up to it's name and it's delicious!

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.
