We have eaten at many Captial Grille locations and this one is our favorite by far. The atmosphere is typical of the restaurants. The service far exceeds others. The food is excellent. Always end with a creme brulee!

Went for lunch, outstanding service, delicious food. They have 4 lunch entrees available wherein you pick a starter (salad, soup) and an entree for $20. Excellent deal and delicious food. Great wines by the glass also.
