What's good at the Capital City Grille (Mpls)?

Have a work celebration there tomorrow and would like to live it up a bit (it's well deserved). Any recommendations?

    Capital Grille is a franchise steak, power dinner, expense account, macho sort of place. It's not the first place people think of when they want a truly memorable dining experience. I would stick to the basics, and you'll probably do okay.

      I guess I would disagree with Brad's overgeneralization. The capital grill has a aged beef program that most steak places in town do not have. The do it in house and the meat is really terrific. I would urge you to try one of them (my favorite is the porterhouse). If you don't like beef, the tuna (rare) is one of the best in the city. Good luck.

        I think we're saying the same thing -- stick with what they're known for.
