Gregory’s is pretty much our favorite place to hang out. It’s great for a special occasion or to just hang out after a long day at work. It’s laid back, but the cocktails are world class. I’ve never had a drink or dish that I didn’t absolutely love at Capt Gregory’s.

This place was awesome! I was looking for a place to try that was different and it was great! If you have never been to a Speak Easy this is the one to try! It is a very small place and reservations are a must. We definitely go back on our next visit to Alexandria!

Great experience. Amazing drinks and experimental drinks were good too. Food was good and I enjoyed the pork belly so much we ordered it twice. A must try.

A Speakeasy for everyone. Capt. Gregory’s thankfully lacks the stuffy, overbearing formality of other local speakeasy options. The staff is friendly and attentive and the drinks were definitely something to write home about. We’ll be back.

PS absolutely splurge on the donuts. #worththecalories

First time to a speakeasy, and not what I was expecting ( which is not a bad thing at all). They had an amazing drink menu that covered all the bases and excelled with each choice (I enjoyed the Ghost, she the Apartment overlooking Zurich). Not much in the way of food but what they had was amazing! The hushpuppies were the best I've ever had.

Heavy on the nautical theme (as you can expect), and being seated at one of the tables was a bit uncomfortable (cramped and speaker in my ear). There, the service was noticably slower compared to sitting at the bar, where people were served instantly and constantly. Next time around we're sitting there.

Great place!!

Wow! What a fantastic experience. The host and bartender provided impeccable service! The drinks were beyond delicious and so creative. Food menu is fairly limited but delicious to have a snack with your cocktails. What a cool hidden gem!! Perfect for a date or special occasion.

This was our second date at Captain Gregory’s and it was every bit as special as the first time around. From the greeting at the hidden door to the farewell as we left we were got the very best care and service. The drinks were inspired and the foods were light yet so delicious and well-crafted. If I could give more than five stars I would. “We’ll be bahck!”

Excellent speak easy bar! They have new drinks every month so it always an adventure. Service is great, bar tenders are knowledgeable and offer drink recommendations if you like with a little guidance. Food is excellent and they serve donuts from the local donut shop!

Fun experience! Surprised my husband by taking him to the donut store. He was shocked when the wall slid open and we were ushered into a secret bar. We sat at the bar and the bartenders and hostess were very friendly and funny. The cocktails were amazing. One of the bartenders made two drinks for us off the menu and he created another one for another couple and they were fantastic. We had fun trying to come up with names for the newly-created drinks. It was a nice bonus to be able to order donuts from the store to eat with your drinks.

What an interesting surprise! We had a great time visiting with the bartender and watching him make his creations, which were delicious! We loved the atmosphere and the intimacy of this speakeasy hidden behind the wall of a donut shop. We will definitely visit again when we return to the area.

Capt. Gregory's is always a good time. We've probably been a half dozen times... and it's a little pricey for the experience but usually worth every penny. Great food. Inventive cocktails, fun entrance. Go!

Great drinks. Loved watching the bartenders in action. When they were less busy, they would share cocktail history and lore. Pricey but worth it.

Cpt. G's is arguably one of the foremost craft cocktail experiences and bars in Alexandria. The bartenders have a breadth of knowledge and are willing to share their expertise on the historical, evolutionary, and current experimental approach to the art of making craft cocktails. The small bite, food options perfectly compliment the drinks. Doug et al. were phenomenal at serving us dealer's choice cocktails and keeping us entertained. Excited to return!!

Still a fun spot with creative list of cocktails. And the food is getting better -- we were actually fighting over the brussels sprouts dish with pine nuts and raisins.

It was fun & drinks were great until the Bartender told us we had 30 mins before our reservation was done. We haven’t seen each other in 15 years and were drinking and catching up. Apparently there is a two hour cap. The bartender’s constant reminder & countdown just felt a bit pushy and negative to me.

Great idea, but poorly executed. Drinks try too hard. Too many ingredients that don't mix well. The food is just subpar and extremely over-priced. $6 for less than a cup of popcorn that supposedly has dill and sea salt. Tasted like mediocre kettle corn. We sent it back. The hushpuppies were dry as dust. And the 3 small scallops for $18 was a total ripoff. The only thing that made me feel better were the donuts I purchased on my way out.

Honestly, go across the street to Mason Social for great drinks and reasonably-priced, tasty shareable food.
