This was a pretty cool place. Myself, my wife, in-laws and brother in law went there after spending the entire day in DC doing touristy things all day for a late dinner. The place has a cool modern/urban upper class look to it. Since it was fairly late we got seated right away. Everything got to us pretty quick when we ordered too. My wife and I split wings and a sampler of 5 of the beers. The beers weren't bad, but I really liked the Prohibition Porter and the Red Waves Amber Ale, both good. There were a couple more beers you could pick from too, but that's all we had. The food was very good, we both really liked the wings and we each got a burger too. The burgers were really good, but I found them a bit pricey. The Burgers were like 12 bucks and I sub sweet potato fries for regular fries which put it up to 13. I know it seems pretty picky, especially since they were really good, but I kind of have an unwritten rule that a burger meal shouldn't eclipse 10 bucks. I get it though, it's in the middle of the city, they can get away with it. They make some decent beer too, so all in all I liked the place and would go back if I were to visit the city again.

3.38/5  rDev -5.8%

I previously visited Capital City back in 2008 when I was first getting into craft beer and thought the place was great at that time. I've come along way since then and I must say my June 2014 visit was a disappointment. The beers are basic and bland and it's same with the food. Atmosphere was not that beer-centric vibe that most of us crave, rather it was dominated by tourists and young political types drinking cocktails after work. I asked our waiter if I could get a flight and he stared at me blankly. I patiently explained what a flight was and he finally said, "Oh, you mean a sampler." When I mentioned that "flight" is a very common beer term he said he wasn't interested in beer so he really didn't know...
