The food and service was really good. Super busy but that was fine. We sat at the bar for convenience of time. Things are cleaned up in front of you at the bar area so if you prefer more privacy and less traffic, sit at a table. Really good pancakes.

Capitol Diner offers a large and varied menu, as do most diners. Neon lights, stainless steel, and mirrors created a fun start for our visit to Pennsylvania. I chose this diner again because of reviews, locations, and menu. It was a fun experience, especially for my grandson. The waiter was attentive, chatty, and pleasant. Food was delicious. I ordered turkey and dressing because it is not prepared this way in Texas. The dressing was moist and flavorful, turkey was tender, and the gravy was perfect. My grandson ordered hamburger and fries with oreo chocolate cake for desert. Yes, the spectacular desert was his favorite. I will return when traveling through HIA.

Went for dinner with friends. Ordered chicken pot pie which was a special that evening. It was the worst pot pie ever! The noodles were bunched into a ball and the broth was sweet tasting. I would not recommend this to anyone. I was surprised since I have eaten here several times before and the meals were always good. Waitress did not check with us regarding the meal or desserts which some people were to have as part of their meal.
