Review: Cap CIty Fine Diner

A couple of weeks back I had the opportunity to dine at a restaurant that I haven’t tried before. Cap City Fine Diner has been in the Columbus area for 20 years, and I have lived in Columbus for 30 years, yet somehow I managed to miss this gem. Cap City Fine Diner is an artsy and cool diner with an upscale twist and has convenient locations in Grandview and Gahanna. We visited the Grandview location and sat on the patio and enjoyed the fabulous weather and live music. 

The gluten-free menu is fairly extensive with many mouthwatering options. Some of the stand out menu items include:

  • Crispy Fish and Chips (they use Bob’s Red Mill GF flour for the fish and the fries have a dedicated fryer!)
  • Pecan Crusted Pork Chops (served with Cheddar-Chipotle Mashed Potatoes)
  • Philly Cheese Steak (served on a GF bun with fries)
  • Jake’s Famous Reuben (served on a GF bun with fries)

I also avoid dairy, and while they don’t have a menu for that, the server and chef were very helpful in making a safe choice for my meal. I was even treated to a gluten-free roll before my meal!

While I couldn’t put butter on it (dairy), I was just happy to be eating bread in a restaurant! I ordered a burger and fries for my meal and thoroughly enjoyed every bite. This is definitely someplace I will be visiting again!

Cap City Fine Diner is part of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, which also offers one of our other favorites, Molly Woo’s. If you live in the Columbus area, or are in town visiting, make sure to put Cap City Fine Diner on your list of “must try restaurants.”
