Best Steakhouse in Milwaukee – Frequently, I visit family down in Milwaukee. I've made my own steaks for over 30 years. I rarely if ever went out because I felt dining out was overpriced and the only people who dine out are the fools that are also maxing out their credit cards. I saved every dime I had and preferred eating peanut butter sandwiches than paying $20 for a meal. However, after selling my own business for 7 figures this past year, I am finally beginning to enjoy the hard work and determination that other financially smart people have before me.

My treat: A weekly visit to the Capital Grille. Let me tell you why. I've cooked those steaks for over 30 years. I've tried the other steak places like TGIF, Carnivore, Outback, etc. This is the only place that is a value. Don't waste your money on something with no value and that you could cook at home. Spend it on the perfection of a soft juicy mouthwatering pink in the center fillet mignon. The staff is great and the wine list is great. They have some rare wines that I've only seen in Vegas.

I took my whole family (15 people) to experience this restaurant this past weekend. Everyone loved it and can't wait to go again!

THE BEST CAPITAL GRILLE, I HAVE EVER BEEN TOO AND I HAVE BEEN TO ALOT. – LOVED THE ATTENTION THAT I GOT FROM THE MANAGER ON DUTY. COMING FROM THE EAST COAST, THE RESTAURANT WAS CLEAN, THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT AND THE FOOD WAS MOUTH WATERING. THE SERVICE MADE THE EVENING. I WON'T GO ANYWHERE ELSE WHEN I AM IN MILWAUKEE. IF YOU WANT GREAT FOOD, EXCELLENT SERVICE OR JUST A MEAL TO REMEMBER; DINE AT THE CAPITAL GRILLE. WE TRIED OTHER RESTAURANTS BUT NOTHING COMPARED. WE WENT THE LAST THREE NIGHTS AND WERE OLD FRIENDS. THE BARTENDAR EVEN REMEMBERED US AND HAD OUR DRINKS READY.

Great food, service and atmosphere! – Great food, atmosphere and service!

The friendly complimentary valet parking and hostess got our evening off to a leisurely and welcome beginning. We entered into an elegant well-designed atmosphere that could fit any occasion. All the wait staff was congenial and helpful. Our questions on each course and wine selection were very professionally and timely answered. All we had to do was relax and enjoy.

Some of our selections included,

Oysters on the Half Shell and the Pan Fried Calamari. Both were so good that we can?t say which was our favorite. Our steaks, a Filet and a Sirloin, were superb and done exactly to our wishes. Sides of Asparagus and Baked Potato with the Wedge Salad rounded everything out. Did we have room for desert? We just had to try the Coconut Cream Pie, which we split, delightful! This was a wonderful compliment to a gracious evening and our car was at the curb in good time.

Truly a romantic evening...... – I took my sweetheart to the Capital Grille to celebrate Valentine's Day, and our dining experience was among the best I've had in recent memory (and I am sure my boyfriend would concur). The staff was friendly, courteous, and very accommodating, and the food was absolutely delicious! We started our meal with the calamari appetizer, which was wonderful, and each subsequent course rivaled the one before it. A personal favorite item was the Lobster Mac and Cheese, and the au gratin potatoes were delicious as well. My boyfriend raved about the salmon special he had for his entree and I thoroughly enjoyed the steak I ordered. By the time we got to dessert, we were both quite full, but couldn't resist the tempation of a wonderful chocolate cake to end our meal. It, like everything else we enjoyed, was amazing and very decadent... We plan to visit again soon..........

Outstanding Fare and Experience! – I've dined at The Capital Grille in Chicago and what a treat to have one right here in Milwaukee! Any time I have dined at the Milwaukee location the food has been outstanding! The waitstaff is extremely knowledgeable from everything to the food, wine and the art decorating the restaurant! The service that I have received is of the utmost professionalism and the Kona sirloin matched with Au Gratin potatoes keeps me going back! Complimentary valet parking is most definitely a plus, especially in the cold months of winter!

A Fabulous Addition to Downtown Milwaukee – What a great addition to Milwaukee!! Wonderful food (For starters, I highly recommend the Calamari appetiser followed by the Filet Mignon and Augratin Potatoes,,,oh!! and the Cheesecake is out of this world!!), excellent service and very attentive, a nice ambience throughout the restaurant, very clean. Another bonus is the valet service. Great for celebrations, business lunches and or dinners or a night out on the town.

Best Resaurant For Special Occasions – Recently dined for our anniversary and the personal touches and service were exceptional! From the greeting by the hostess to the complimentary champagne toast, beautiful rose and anniversary card at the table, we were thoroughly impressed. The steak and lobster were the best we've had in quite some time. And to finish it off, a complimentary dessert and wonderful photo rounded out a very memorable evening.

BEST STEAKS & SERVICE!! – WOW!! There is nothing like this restaurant in Milwaukee! We dined there for dinner once and find ourselves always going back. The customer service is like no other in the city. The food is always outstanding and who doesn't love complimentary valet parking! You must try out The Capital Grille if you haven't already been!!
