Welcome to Captial Pub, Your neighborhood stop for great and large drink selection
We are loctaed at 2401 North Henderson, 1/2 Mile east od central/75 on your right at capitol, 1 block past the light at belmont. We have 2 parking lots, both entrances on Capitol.
The first thing you notice when you walk in Capitol Pub is the overwhelming feeling of warmth and comfort. There’s a stone fireplace on the patio that seems to surge heat through the door and into the whole building.
Owner Peter Kenny and his contractor chipped away at the former shoe shop’s plaster to reveal original rafters from the ’20s.
A tall table near the entry was once a church confessional in Mexico. The pub’s main door is from India and Kenny claims the cast iron railings around the patio remind him of his hometown, Dublin.
Executive chef Ian Feiwus and sous chef Steven Morris dish out above average pub grub.
Menu standouts are the stout root beer float (Guiness stout and root beer poured over vanilla bean ice cream) and tandoori chicken skewers.
The warm goat cheese salad will appease peeps that prefer a light meal. Conversely, the drunken steak sandwich is a hearty way to start off a lager-filled night.
What’s a pub without Shepherd’s Pie? An impostor, that’s what. Capitol has pie and homemade pizza.
There are 60-70 bottles of beer and 12 on draught.
The crowd is a diverse mix of people living in the neighborhood, European transplants, college students and mid- to older-aged patrons.
