The dinner menu features southern dishes with an upscale flare.

The Capital Hotel is in the heart of downtown Little Rock. This historic hotel opened in 1877, offering the most modern luxuries of the day. Today, this structure is still charming guests as it did over 100 years ago.

The menu includes several options for snacks and starters. We selected the pretzel bites, which had a nice sweet glaze.

Various entrees are available, from steak and pork to shrimp and chicken. Considering the shrimp and grits? They don’t skimp on protein or gravy. (This is my favorite.)

The braised short rib is served with vegetables and whipped potatoes.

We enjoyed a good cup of coffee and a chocolate brownie for dessert.
