Delicious food! The plates are good portions and taste very good. The service was excellent, specially our waitress Lora. Even she was super busy and rush, always have a smile and take good care of our orders. Definitely coming back on next vacations!

Decent food and drinks. Not the most sanitary, they have a fly problem. Waiter wasn't the most professional. She kept reaching over the people at my table. Kid friendly. Senior friendly. Wheel chair accessible.

The start of our patronage was not ideal we were placed into a 2-seater style half booth. Asked to be seated in a regular booth. Asked for coffee.. it was provided but my significant other received a full cup but I only received a half cup and the waitress took forever to come back to our table/provide pancakes were cold and not good...was not satisfied with the bacon, was less thn presentable....service overall was less thn desirable.....very disappointing ???


The service was good but the food was even better. The French toast, Buffalo wings, sweet potato fries, are just a few of my favorite. The kids menu came with a beverage, and dessert.

I was visiting from Ohio and decided to try Capitol Diner since it was close to the hotel and I'm glad I did. I had the steak dinner and the steak was cooked perfectly. It was one of the best steaks I've had. It had lots of flavor and was very juicy. The staff was very friendly and attentive. I will definitely go there again next time I'm in the area.

I have no idea what has happened to rhis place but WOW it has really gone down hill. Use to come here often but first time in since pandemic.Nothing like service with an attitude Sharon.Wanted to sit at a table not all clumped in with all the other tables they had but was told they inky had one server, yet I saw at least 4 others in the restaurant.When asked what vegetable sides they had was told French fries, mashed potatoes and corn. I asked "No broccoli or beans" and Sharon answered NO! as if I'd asked for a limp and walked away.Times are bad for resturants you'd think they at least try to be nice to the dew people eating out.Oh and food.. granddaughter ordered Mac-n-cheese and mash potatoes (since they didn't have broccoli) I paid $6.99 for a small bowl of Kraft Mac and cheese and cold potatoes ?Won't be going back there again.


Absolutely horrible diner in my opinion.I went here after realized the Marriott hotel had no breakfast due to COVID. My host there recommend this diner to me.After looking at the building from the outside, I figured I would give it a shot.After waiting some 15 minutes, I ordered the Dutch omelette with home fries. When the food arrived, it looked like someone threw eggs and raw potatoes onto a plate. It was a really bad experience.After continuing to visit the rest of the Hershey area, I felt a sick feeling in my stomach. I threw up what seemed to be the home fries.Was very unimpressed with the food there and the experience.

In the area for vacation so needed a place for breakfast. Their breakfast menu is extensive and so far we've all had really good meals. If you like biscuits and sausage gravy, give theirs a try because it's excellent!

The staff was very friendly. The food was reasonably priced and the portion sizes were perfect. The outside of the diner is what drew me in, the food was okay. Made for a great experience.

This was the second time visiting in five years. Looks like they made some interior updates and the place was clean. Food is good but certainly only diner qualit. The portions are large and price is in keeping with other local casual restaurants. Service was good even arriving near closing time. Will visit again when back in the area.

Was from out of town and I loved it..foos waa excellent and the service..a bit of a wait but well worth It.


A receptionist at the nearby Hilton Garden Inn recommended the Diner. It was an excellent choice for diner style food. Excellent menu. Went there twice. Once for take out and the next time for a big breakfast before a long road trip. Lots of choices. Everything made to order and easy in and out if you are on a road trip and not looking for a long or romantic meal.

My mashed potatoes were cold.There was excessive fat on my pork.Sauerkraut was cold and it tasted like you put sugar in it.Great for a diabetic! I asked for roll and butter.Never got it til almost when I was done eating and they tasted like flour.They were warm but the butter was hard and did not melt even on a warm roll.I believe the carrots also had sugar in them.So I had to ask twice for my ice cream.When I finally got it,it was old cause you could taste it.It was full of ice junks.It was melted real bad.I have worked in the food business for over 20 years and am very knowledgeable about food.I was referred to your diner by members of the Hershey medical center.So disappointed.
