They do not have it together at the Capital Ale House. Maybe they are trying, and they are pleasant enough, but it took forever to get a beer, we weren't allowed to sit outside because it was wet, but then they seated lots of others...More

I have enjoyed the Capital Ale House many times. The brew selections (local and not-so-local) can't be beat and the food is enjoyable. I like the upper level outside rooftop area for great ambiance.

Group of adults went for dinner and drinks. The food was good, but the beer list is better. Knowledgeable staff can help anyone find something they'd like.
