We had a great experience here. My daughter who is gluten sensitive loved the cheesy potato chip appetizer. She ordered a Cesar salad with grilled Chicken and was excited when they brought out a basket of gluten free rolls. All the food we ordered was delicious.

I’m honestly crying. It has been soo soo long since I could sit down at a restaurant with my family as a celiac and truly enjoy the meal without reservation.

Our server was friendly, kind, and knowledgeable, which set the tone. Then I was met with a gluten free menu, and oh, the kicker- a dedicated gluten free fryer!!!!! I had a french fry out for the first time in many years. AND A gluten free orange creamcicle cheesecake!! All of the food was incredible, but most of all the feeling of freedom that came was priceless.

Hey y’all gf folks! Just so you know they will turn the gf rolls they have into cinnamon rolls for you at no charge and they’re delicious! Just ask your server what they can make gf for you bc they can do more than just what’s listed. My kiddos got chicken tenders (not just grilled) and that’s not in the menu. Plus they tend to have daily desserts that are gf or daily specials that can be gf too.

Absolutely wonderful! Dedicated GF menu on website and on Doordash. Everything was labeled with an allergen label and was appropriately GF. Their food itself was wonderful. It has been a long time since I had a Philly Cheesesteak, let alone a GF version. It came with rolls too which was a really nice touch. They even have a dedicated fryer for their fries to enjoy the full meal without skipping out on anything!

On 4/2/22 I had the fish and chips from the gluten free menu, which came with cole slaw and tartar sauce. Two hours later I had a full-on glutening, not a cross-contamination level but "actually ate gluten" level. We had told the server I had celiac, and specifically ordered off the gluten free menu.

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.

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.

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.

This place is amazing I went with a friend for her birthday and was expecting not to have anything to eat but they had asked if anyone was gluten free and said I was they gave me a whole gluten free menu. Also waiter told the cooks it was allergy so there was no cross contaminated and food tasted so good also they have a gluten free desert that changes each day that’s a chef’s special and it was cheesecake and it tasted sooo good I’ve never had a better cheesecake.!!

I felt very safe here and loved having fries. Only 4 stars because our waitress - I ordered a Reuben and asking about 1000 Island dressing and if it's dairy free for my dairy allergy. She didn't know if it had dairy and she wasn't offering to ask. So I told her to ask just to make sure. She never came back to tell me (I would have already ordered Mayo or they had a remoulade for something else that was possibly df - anything extra for a sauce!), she never came back to tell me and it just came with only the slaw.

I guess for a nice restaurant I would have liked a little more attention and knowledge of the ingredients. Or asking the chef and communicating.

But no reactions. Bun was good. . Would maybe order the battered fish next time instead. We only went here because choripan was closed. Just passing through town.
