We eat here a couple of times a month. The food and service are always good. They have 1/2 price bottles of wine on Sunday so it’s even better.

Cap City Fine Diner and Bar

Welcome to Cap City Fine Diner As with any diner, you feel immediately comfortable and at ease. Like no other diner, it’s artsy and cool. The Cap City menu follows suit, with recognizable favorites like meatloaf receiving unexpected and delightful upscale twists, alongside trendier chef-driven dishes with big flavors. Desserts at this Cameron Mitchell Restaurant are retro cool, taste better than you remember and are showstopper sized.

This restaurant is located near a food shopping mall and we found the food and service was good. If you keep in mind that this is not a gourmet restaurant and it serves good American style food, you'll be happy. The cost is very reasonable and it's great to dine here for a quick meal with your family.

Well, I want to say I love the pizza but....it just isn't flavorful enough for me. This is my 2nd visit and I thought maybe my 1st visit was just an off day for me. But, it just didn't have much flavor. It had hardly any sauce and the sausage wasnt very flavorful. We got half pepperoni and half onion/sausage. I expected italian sausage but it was rather flavorless pork crumble. Don't get me wrong, it's not bad, just not great. The side salad is large, really enough for 2. Comes with Marzetti dressing pack. They have coke products and take a debit/credit card. 2 salads, large pie with 3 topping and 2 drinks $25. Give them a try and see what you think.

The New Albany Rusty Bucket Restaurant looks great after remodeling it. It still has a great menu to choose from. I was there with a party of 12 people and they handled us very easily. We were seated in the other room from the main dinning room. This room is very nice too. My wife ordered fish and chips. Very good portion and it tasted very good. I tried something different and ordered from the Blue Plate Specials. The Saturday special was the Pork Schnitzel. This was a pork filets breaded served with red cabbage. Great choice and would order it again. Overall, great atmosphere, good serve and great food!
