    Perfect steaks and the lobster mac are a must for dinner. For lunch: the lobster bisque or the lobster & crab cakes are not published on the menu, under 500 calories and still so decadent.

    You know when you're full and you still keep eating? That's this place! Service is phenomenal, food to die for! Crab cakes have chunks of crab you can actually see, lobster mac amazing! Steak perfect!

    Nothing ever changes, and that's exactly as it should be. My pick: bone-in NY strip with gorgonzola and truffle, or the same steak with a Kona crust. Skip the Brussels sprouts.

    If you want to go to the Capital Grille, the downtown location is the best. My wife and I have tried them all and enjoy the atmosphere there over the others. The sirloin steak is great!

    Kona steak & Oscar filet were amazing! Prosciutto mozzarella app was also great! Creme brûlée was perfect. Lobster Mac & cheese was not as amazing as I thought it would be. Overall Great restaurant

    Truly wonderful old fashioned service. Great cocktails, amazing steaks and humongous sides. Caleb (waiter) is a treasure and a marvellous guide for the menu.

    Nice to see consistency across different Grilles. Attentive service is the key. Impressive wine list. You'll unlikely to finish your main if you get a starter.

    If you are going for a Private Room (and you should) ask for The State Room (seats up to 16 rowdy people) over the smaller Board Room. Read more

    It may sound odd, but the lobster mac and cheese is a must order anytime you visit. It's big enough to share, but you may not want to.
