Food needs some serious work, service was fine. Feel bad for the place knowing it could be a Golden gem. With reviews maybe the owner will take heart and pay attention.

We stopped in for a quick bite before attending a show in Golden. Old Capital has a nice ambiance and upscale bar feel. We were a bit disappointed with the tap selection though. Dinners were well presented, all served with a tiny apple, and as described. My sandwich, while tasty, was prepared heavy handed with an excessive amount of jalapeños... More

This place had a good menu and everything the table had was tasty. Service was pretty slow. Hopefully that is not the norm there. Check it out!

Had dinner here for a large group. The food was great, service very good. The banquet room isn't great as far as ambiance, but we had a good time.

Wonderful experience in this restaurant located in a historical building in the downtown area of Golden CO, home of the Coors Brewing Company . Also learned from our server Alex that it is one of only 2 other bars/restaurants in Boulder allowed by Coors Brewing to serve the Barmen draft beer due to the technique required for the pour. Though... More

We stopped in the Old Capitol Grill on a cold, blustery evening looking just for a place to eat. It's right on the main street and is a very attractive place. We had soup and salads and both were great - obviously fresh and well-prepared for us. The restaurant seems a little run-down but only slightly.

Old Capitol Grill is in an interesting historic building with and ideal location in the center of Golden. The seating on Washington Street is absolutely prime for watching people and snapping a selfie sitting below the Howdy Folks Welcome to the West sign. The food varies from average to great on any given day and it is that inconsistency that... More
