Comics were great, service was excellent. Drinks were made well and our waitress was on top of it. Food is typical bar food and exactly what you'd expect - but good, nevertheless.

I had a hard time choosing between average and very good. The drinks are okay. And we haven't been brave enough to try the food. Honestly, the two item minimum and automatically added gratuity prevents us from wanting to purchase more. The coffee was horrid. I'm not sure if my cream was off, but I couldn't even drink it.

This was my third visit here. Each time, from the ticket sales to the waitstaff, everyone has always been very friendly. We saw Bruce Bruce here and he was hilarious. The food and drinks are very good as well.

Have never been there for the comedy but visit there with the Austin Traditional Jazz Society. Ample parking, wheelchair accessible. Food service, unchanging menu, moderately priced, drinks the same. Seating is rather packed in. Automatic 15% gratuity.

Knowing the headliner act made it easy to get into this location, and what great seats we had. The venue was easy to get to, and there was plenty of parking for this mid-week evening show. The acoustics were excellent, so all the acts could be heard cleanly, as well as the random person who made comments in the audience... More

My friend got free tix for her birthday from cap city so we went down to celebrate. We had so much fun. The atmosphere is light and exciting. Everyone is pretty friendly. There were 2 opening acts before the headliner. They were all hilarious. The drinks were good and inexpensive. There's also food but we had eaten earlier. We caught... More

My husband and I had a rare night out from the kids and wanted to do something different than dinner and a movie. SO GLAD we went to Cap City. The venue was awesome, the hostess, Nathalie Holmes was fantastic and really kicked the night off well. The headliner was Nate Bargatze who was ridiculously funny. Laughed so hard I... More

It had been years since I had been to Capital City comedy club. Like think early 2000s. I was a little surprised to see that the club hadn't been updated much since then but it didn't matter. The place was still decent. My husband and I went to see John Heffron last night. We had purchased a summer special about... More

We love comedy and this place did not disappoint! This was our first time here and we'll be back. I bought the King Kong ticket package because it was a birthday surprise and wanted reserved seating for the 8pm show. It really wasn't that busy or that big of a venue to worry about where you'll be sitting. We had... More

We went twice in the month of April--We had been before but I didn't out much thought into it. I can't really rate this place based on a bad comedian (that was our experience one of the two nights) but I will say, the older "manager" white male in his late 50's possibly older was rude as hell. On three... More
