The Capital Grille

I'm not sure if you have noticed, but I don't "rate" the happy hours I put on my blog. That's because people have different taste. A happy hour I like, you may not like. But if I were to rate The Capital Grille, I'd give them 5 stars! No, 10 stars!!!!!!  This place is amazing! We just went last night and I LOVED it!

The Capital Grille has happy hour Monday-Friday from 4:30-7pm offering small plates, signature cocktails, and wine for just $6 each.  Now if you are more of a "quality over quantity person" like myself, you'll love this happy hour, too.

I actually went to Capital Grille last week for dinner and John, the bartender the awesome bartender, filled me in that they were starting a brand new happy hour the following week. So I marked in my calendar and we popped in last night.  As soon as we saw the happy hour menu, we were impressed. Lobster and Crab Burgers? Mini Tenderloin Sandwiches?? HELLO!


I really loved everything we had but my favorites were the Lobster & Crab Burgers, the Tenderloin Sandwiches, and the Prosciutto Sandwiches. Soooooo good. The Tenderloin was sooo tender. Guess, that's why they call it a "tenderloin". : )

Capital Grille's drink selection is also wonderful. Check out the menu. (Their Classic Manhattan is also offered during HH but it's not on the menu.) We tried to sample as many cocktails as we could (for research purposes only) but only got to 6. There wasn't one I didn't like but my favorites were the Stoli Doli, The Bohemian, and the Mojito de Uvas. The Mojito was made with rum and topped with Champagne. Great mix! Love's (my friend) faves were the Stoli Doli, The Grapefruit Buck, and The Bohemian.

So this just became my new, favorite happy hour in Mid-City West. Not only was the food and drinks great, but the service was top-notch. Bartender John was behind the bar once again and was really through about telling all the customers about the drinks and food. We were highly impressed. Even the ambience was great! They offer happy hour in both the downstairs and the upstairs bar, but the upstairs is part-patio and is beautiful. I loved it and you will, too!
