Capital Grille recipes, a helpful guide to preparing your favorite dishes from the Capital Grille menu at home. These copycat recipes are typically not based on exactly the method used at Capital Grille, but are modeled closely on the flavor and texture of Capital Grille's food, making it easier than ever to bring these great tastes to your house for cheap.

Capital Grille is an upscale chain of fine dining restaurants. Popular menu items include dry-aged steaks, seafood, and pasta dishes, as well as specialty items like lamb chops. Capital Grille also boasts an extensive wine list serving bottles from all over the world.

From the cheesy biscuits at Red Lobster to the amazing sauces at Buffalo Wild Wings, it's always tempting to go out for a delicious treat at one of the numerous chain and franchise restaurants dotting the landscape. But eating out at restaurants all the time can be a costly proposition. Not to mention the fact that, at restaurants, you have no portion control, and can't alter the recipes, ingredients or style of cooking to suit your own taste.

Making Capital Grille recipes in your home gives you all of these options, while saving you money, and providing the same great diversity and taste that you'd find at your favorite casual dining spot. This list collections the best copycat Capital Grille recipes from around the Web.
