Welcome to Capital City Chop House!
For decades, the Chop House has obsessed over one thing: quality. We start with the best steaks, seafood and chops we can find, cook them exactly to your liking, then inspect every plate twice before serving you. At every turn, we pay special attention to the details. It’s these little details that all melt together to make a truly extraordinary meal.
We believe premium ingredients are only as good as the chefs who prepare and cook them. We also believe a legendary menu falls flat without legendary service to serve it up. So whether it’s a business lunch, happy hour or date night, join us for a bona fide meal made the right way — all in an atmosphere where you can relax and be yourself.
Capital City Chop House sits right outside of Raleigh, making it easily accessible from most places in the Triangle. It’s within striking distance of Research Triangle Park, and is just a stone’s throw from RDU Airport.

    My wife and I had reservations for Friday evening to celebrate the birthday of a mutual friend. We were very disappointed with the food. Our steaks were tough, the mashed potatoes were lumpy, and the soup was far too salty. It was a terrible experience and I had to apologize to our friend for a very poor meal at a very high price. We will never go to this restaurant again.

    Went here for Mother’s Day. Service was horrible!!! We never got our appetizer we got ordered. Also, orders LOADED baked potato and it came as a dry baked potato with nothing on it and manager acted put out when we asked for butter and sour cream. I ordered the short rib and it was the toughest short rib I have ever eaten it required a steak knife which the didn’t bring till food had been sitting at our table for almost 10 min so of course food was cold by the time we got to eat. We also never got our creamed spinach nor our mushrooms that we order. There were even more problems but I don’t want to make this to long. NEVER GO EAT THERE!! Ruined our Mother’s Day!!!

    Second time, first time was fantastic. Plates were chipped, glasses were dirty. Bar drinks were very slow. So we order 2 at a time. Water glasses on table had to ask to fill up and few times. Empty Glasses and app/dinner plates/ plater were not picked up until there’s was no room to place newer items. Food was so-so. Cesar’s Salad was watery. Ran out of dinner items, and desserts. Very apologetic. We invited friends last minute. Was embarrassed apologize to our guest for dinner experience.

    The menu items seemed a bit pricey for the food quality -- we both had steaks. There was nothing wrong with the beef, but I've had better cuts elsewhere, especially considering the price points. The service seemed "earnest" -- as if, somehow, the servers knew they had to make up the value somehow. We tried to get into the Angus Barn but couldn't get a reservation. So, we tried the Chop House because it was nearby and, thus, convenient to where we were headed last night.

    very much appreciated that they honored our seating request. Service was disappointing. I ordered lamb chops medium well. They were undercooked and asked for them to be cooked some more. As the waiter took them away, he informed me that he thought they had been “cooked perfectly. “ Waiter seemed more interested in setting up tables for the next day than paying attention to us. We would’ve ordered dessert if he had returned to our table sooner after clearing dishes and then it took quite a long time to get check and go through process of taking the credit card and getting back to us .

    This was our first time at the restaurant and it was simply outstanding. The staff were all just welcoming and friendly. Our waiter was extremely attentive and knowledgeable. The food was exquisite. The jumbo lump crab dip, Brussel sprouts, lobster mac and cheese were perfect, the smoked duck breast, lamb shank and seared scallops were just melt in your mouth goodness. We are definitely looking forward to visiting again.

    Food was good, didn’t blow me away, but it was good. I’ve been coming to this steakhouse for years and generally preferred it due to it being a lower price point than other nicer steakhouses in the area. I was absolutely perplexed when I saw that my steak was going to be over $80. As I said, the food was good, but definitely not worth the price. If I’m spending that much on a meal, I expect it to be fantastic. With that being said, the salad and sides were great. Service was below average, but I think it was just an off night. At this point, I think I will be going to other options in the area.

    We really enjoyed small plates of ahi tuna and beef tenderloin medalions. More than enough with a small salad to start and creme bruke to finish. Service could have been a little more attentive...but not a major problem.

    We were celebrating my son's 22nd Birthday. The service was superb. The manager, server and hostess was very nice. The food was not good. The steak was very bland...it reminded me of bad hospital food. The manager was kind enough to take it back to the chef. The 2nd one was better than the 1st, however it was still not good. I should never come to a steak house and need steak sauce. I frequent other $$$$ in the Raleigh area and this experience did not compare to absolutely none of them. It was more like Golden Corral steak night. The lamb chops was not on the level either. The bread was good. The dessert was good. The manager asked us to please come back and give them another try. I am a woman of truth and I told her I would never put myself through that again. I actually told her if she was the cook and not the chef. It was torture. I should not spend that type of money and the food taste like that. It was the quality of the meat and the taste.

    Our party of 4 split a cowboy steak, house (flat iron) steak, bistro salads, seafood platter app, calamari app, creamed spinach, caesar salad. Everything was cooked to perfection as ordered (rare is truly rare with char on the ourside - fantastic). Calamari came smothered in a sweet sauce that was a bit much (next time I'd ask for no sauce) but was tender and still very tasty. 2 types of oysters were huge, fresh, delicious. Cocktail shrimp were enormous. California cabernet was very good as well. They actually read our reservation notes and moved us to a quieter table after first seating us. Managers and waiter were extremely attentive. We will be back for another special occasion.

    The service did not match the level and price point of the restaurant. The waiter disappeared for over 35 mins. Did not check in after the food arrived to see if everything was cooked correctly which would be expected at this level of restaurant.

    We have dined there in the past and everything was very good. This visit not so. We were seated promptly and brought water right away. Appetizer order & drink order taken in good time. Salads & appetizer came out timely, not so much with the main course. Steak was good, lobster was not cooked, still translucent. Food delivered by a runner and waiter did not check back till meal was completed to find that the lobster was not cooked. For food quality price was prohibitive. Will not return. Also noticed that for an upscale and pricey business, seats were taped. It was clean but needs attention. This was a special occasion and we were very disappointed.

    Also always quality of food and service was great. Value is a little on the weak side. I know we have plenty of inflation and the place has always been on the expensive side but always worth the service and quality, but pricing is really pushing limit. Will still return, though

    We've been here numerous times and has become our default steakhouse int the area. Our (spouse and I) last visit was a little perplexing. When we were seated, there were 2 other table occupied in the smaller room; one with one couple and the other with four people. It was pleasant and afforded conversation. Things changed when a large group was seated at the large table in the middle of the room. The room became loud and not suitable for a quiet conversation with my wife (we were celebrating her birthday). I am not blaming the large group, they had plans and should be afforded seating that suites them. The restaurant was not full and there were lots of available tables available. It would have been easy for the hostess to provide seating that was compatible for everyone.
