The Capitol Grille

The Capitol Grille, The Hermitage Hotel’s AAA Four Diamond-rated restaurant, sits in an elegant setting and creates a relaxing mood for any dining occasion. Located in what was originally the main dining room, and then a private men’s club, the restaurant's menu features creative interpretations of southern cuisine with an emphasis on certified Tennessee Black Angus Beef, market fresh seafood and the freshest and best available local products.

The menu features a la carte components, with regionally and historically matched side dishes. Complementing The Capitol Grille’s superb cuisine is The Hermitage Hotel’s historical ambiance and refinement. The restaurant features the city’s finest and most creative luncheon and dinner menus, an exclusive wine list, and impeccable service.

The hotel’s $20 million renovation has touched on all areas of the hotel, including The Grille. The restaurant has a grand new entrance, gracious new furniture, restored cornice work and wall murals illustrating depictions of Nashville history.

Adjacent to The Capitol Grille, the refurbished Oak Bar offers a rich, clubby environment that has often earned it the title of best bar in Nashville. The Francis Craig Orchestra entertained Nashvillians from the Oak Bar and The Capitol Grille from 1929 to 1945 – the longest running hotel gig on the books. Craig's orchestra was also the first to broadcast over WSM and enjoyed phenomenal success with a 12-year show that was aired over the entire NBC network. In 1949, he introduced a newcomer, Dinah Shore, who entertained his audience with a new song entitled, “Near You.”

The Grille serves breakfast Monday through Sunday from 6:30 am to 11:00 am. Lunch at The Grille is served Monday through Saturday from 11:30 am to 2:00 pm, and dinner is served Monday through Sunday from 5:30 pm to 10:00 pm. On Sundays, The Grille features its renowned Sunday Brunch from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. The Oak Bar serves drinks and a light fare from 11:30 am Monday through Saturday and from noon on Sunday.
