Aug 4, 2021.  I always say that the best GF meals are the ones where I can order almost anything off the menu and it taste well without me getting sick. The Cap City Fine Diner is one of those places. I've eaten at this chain before,, but never a this location.. The experience was just as great as the other locations.. Fantastic gluten-free meal. I ordered the beer battered (Red Bridge GF beer) fish and chips from a GF frier. Meal was absolutely great. Wow.

We are just driving through and stopped here to grab take-out for dinner. My non-celiac husband had the gluten free pork meal and I, who is celiac, had the balsamic chicken. We also had the strawberry basil lemonades and the gluten free dessert, be which was creme brulee with strawberries and whipped cream. The food was excellent and flavorful. Unfortunately, later that night we both had a lot of gas and were uncomfortable. It was not a gluten issue since my husband doesn't have any issues with gluten, but something else. Will likely give them a second try if coming back through town in the future.

Separate gluten free menu with a great variety of food. Also had a couple of gluten free beers listed. Food comes out with an allergy marker and there are gluten free rolls. My balsamic chicken was very good and I definitely want to try the fish and chips in the future

Great food, great service, great drinks! I had the gluten free fish and chips and it was amazing! It wasn’t on their current gluten free menu but I asked the server about it and she said they always have it. I was in heaven. They also brought some delicious gluten free rolls with a sweet sauce before the meal. I got a Bloody Mary with their homemade mix and they double checked the recipe for me to be sure it was gluten free. Left feeling great and satisfied! Will definitely go back next time I’m in Columbus!

It was nice to be offered a gluten free roll, but it was not good. The texture was dry and the taste was bland. I then ordered the BLT. The bacon was wonderful, but the bread (different type of bread than the roll) was dry and not very appetizing. I would not order the BLT again for that reason. The tomato was quite thin too. I tried Cap City based on the great reviews, but I can't say I was impressed. I have paid less at other places and have had better gf food.

We have eaten at Cap City Diner four times (coming from out of town). Two of our experiences have been great; two have been awful. This most recent time we went at lunch and were seated at the diner window where we could look into the kitchen. The waitress did a great job checking my allergies and Celiac considerations. I ordered a piece of fish, some plain rice, and sautéed peppers.

They told me they would custom cook my meal just for me.

As I got half way through my meal I found a two inch section of noodle. Absolutely baffling. There was NO noodle in my dish or any way that should have happened — and it was buried IN my food. The manager was apologetic and we left without paying for our dinner... but I definitely paid for my meal in other ways.

I wish I could recommend Cap City Diner, But 50% of our experiences have ended badly. If you have serious allergies/Celiac, eat at your own risk.

They have a separate gf and our server was very knowledgable. He let the kitchen know it was for a celiac and brought my daughter a basket of gf rolls. She had philly cheesesteak and fries, loved it, and was fine after.

Went three times in April, no problem; went last night, sick as a dog after... I always tell restaurants it's an "allergy" and not a preference because people take it more seriously and rarely understand celiacs and cross-contamination issues.... that obviously failed me this time

Been here dozens of times. My celiac go to. Not many places I feel safe eating, this is one of them. The staff is aware of CC and there's dedicated kitchen space. My celiac cousin, father and I are always here.

I'm still trying to find another place I can eat at with consistency and not get sick.

We loved it! GF menu can be viewed online prior. Had a great variety! The boys loved being able to get fries and wings! (Dedicated fryer). The bread was a little dry but... They have it! It's a great option. They brought cinnamon rolls and even provided a GF version! We will be back!

Although they have an extensive gluten free menu, this is not a celiac friendly restaurant. I had a spinach salad with chicken, a cup of soup and creme brûlée and I was unfortunately cross-contaminated after eating there. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant for those with celiac.

I chose this restaurant because I have celiac disease and saw it had an extensive gluten free menu. I ordered the pecan crusted pork chops with spinach, but the spinach had clearly been sauteed in a pan that had been used to fry noodles without being washed between use, because there were small pieces of noodle in the spinach. Please be aware this restaurant's staff are not properly trained on allergy cross-contamination. I will not be eating here ever again.

Large gluten free menu and separate frier for the french fries. Great staff who pay attention to allergy issues. I mentioned that I was allergic to dairy as well as gluten. The kitchen staff checked the bakery website to confirm the gluten free bun was also milk free and even brought out an ingredients list for the bun for me to see. Great food. I would definitely eat here again.

Aug 5, 2018. My wife and I are back in Columbus. Another great meal (read my comments below). Wife had GF fish and chips and I had the GF Ruben sandwich. The Ruben came on their homemade hamburger bun, but the bun was delicious and so was the sandwich. I really like this chain of restaurants for GF eating in the Columbus area.

Dec 18, 2018. My wife and I went back for a second meal. This time I had the GF Philly Cheese steak sandwich with a wild rice salad and GF fries. The meal was delicious yet again. One interesting thing that I hadn't noticed during our visit the prior day was that they also have a dedicated kids (under 12) GF menu. Really cool.

Dec 17, 2018. I always say that the best GF meals are the ones where I can order almost anything off the menu and it taste good without me getting sick. The Cap City Fine Diner is one of those places. Fantastic gluten-free meal. My wife and I enjoy sharing our meals with each other. In most establishments, this means that she has to eat a subpar meal. This was not the case with the meals on their GF menu. She ordered the pecan-crusted pork chops with cheddar chipotle mashed potatoes. I ordered the beer battered (Red Bridge GF beer) fish and chips from a GF frier. Both meals were absolutely great. For dessert, we had the peppermint bark cheesecake. I posted their GF menu and I'm posting pics of our meals. Wow.

We were in from out of town looking for gf food for my daughter and outdoor seating- when we saw gf fish and chips on the menu it was an immediate sell. We have yet to find gf fish and chips anywhere in our area and it was my daughters favorite dining out food prior to celiac diagnosis. She was thrilled and enjoyed it so much!!!! I liked that they put a little flag on the meal indicating it was gf also bc it was reassuring for me.
