Old diner look. clean, efficient help, very crowded on weekend mornings. many choices for breakfast, you can tell the quality of the establishment by the number of local's that frequent the place. When in town we always have breakfast at the Capitol

Somewhat typical diner food. We went there for breakfast. Good selection of items but food was not great. Hash browns were plain and bacon was fatty. If I am back in the area, I will pass on this eatery.

I had fish and chips. My wife had a Monte Cristo. Both were delicious. The batter for the fish was light and crisp with something to sweeten it. The Monte Cristo had ham, turkey, and melted cheddar. The bread was French toast.

The crab cakes were ok but the salmon was way over cooked. The kids had chocolate chip pancakes which they liked. Our waitress was very nice. Too bad they murdered my salmon. Won't be back.

The food was ok. We ordered mozzarella sticks and they were old and rubbery. The rest of the food we ordered was just ok. I wouldn't return.
