Good service. Food was a lil overpriced. Not totally impressed. The honey chicken was good but overdone. Rolls tasted store bought and were cold.

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.

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.
