Very disappointed. Food was terrible. I asked for bread for the burrata and they did not have, my mom ordered a gin and tonic and did not have tonic, dessert was hard and cold.

Captain Gregory's was great fun! It has a wonderful vibe, making everyone there feel special. The food and drinks were unique and delicious, and the waiter helped us to customize some items to our tastes. It's a bit pricey, but we'll definitely be back! AHOY!

Fantastic cocktails, delicious (small) food plates. Definitely not a dinner place but perfect for some drinks and small plates. The cost is worth an occasional visit!

This was a funky little find of a place that we wish we'd found sooner. We will definitely be back. Music but not too loud, other people but not too many, great drinks and so many more to try. Well worth the extra price given the creativity and unique flavor combos. Most impressive on entry was just the whiff of fresh herbs and citrus on coming in the door. Grab a friend and go!

The food was unbelievable delicious. I did not expect that from a craft cocktail speakeasy. The cocktails were also amazing and the server was knowledgeable about everything. Can't wait to come back again!

Overall: great.

My only nit is about the door. When the door is closed the interior is intimate and comfortable. When the door is open, light floods in and I was extracted from quiet ambiance.

I was sitting at a table near the door. There are tables in the rear that wouldn’t suffer from this problem. Or, maybe bar seating would be sufficiently insulated as well.

But my drink and food were quite good.

I’d recommend this place to anyone.

We had family in from out of state and wanted to try do something fun and different. This was such a unique experience that we'll do it again with our next out of town guests. More than that, we can see Captain Gregory's becoming a favorite local hangout just for ourselves. A little pricey, yes, but for the experience and the quality of the food and the drinks WELL WORTH IT.

Amazing experience! A unique night out with friends. Great food, amazing drinks, knowledgeable friendly staff and a Bacon Maple Glazed donut to top it all off....the donut will make more sense later.

I had been here two years prior and was excited to try it again. Service was very good but sadly the drinks were lackluster. I received two of the fruity cocktails and they tasted indistinguishable from each other. All I could taste was the sugar. My friend got another drink and had to return it because it tasted terrible. Fortunately, service was excellent and they did not charge her for those drinks.

Who doesn't like a fun experience? I was a big fan of PX before it closed recently. Overall, the experience was a good one, don't believe I would be back though. It's pricey, although the drinks were creative and well made. These days I really do love the Old Town happy hour fair - there's a lot of great places these days, plus excellent food. As for the food (price and portion) at Captain Gregory's, while it had flavor, portions were very small. We had the scallop and the pork belly - of the latter, at least 50% was fat.

We loved our visit to Captain Gregory's. We were there on a Sunday night and had made reservations in advance. We were seated at the bar (highly recommended). The bartender was engaging and explained the drinks to us. The food that we had was delicious including the scallops, sprouts and pork belly. We look forward to returning on our next trip to the area.

Awesome for a date or special occasion. The food portions und are small but exquisite so don’t come hungry. Apparently the cocktail menu changes seasonally so I will definitely be coming back.

It’s a speakeasy, secluded and intimate. Awesome drinks. Menu was limited but exceptional. Ambiance could use a little work. I didn’t really enjoy staring at a steel garage door all evening. Fortunately my beautiful wife was in the foreground.

A top-notch spot that made for a fun date night. The secret door is the prelude to the cohesive ambiance. Our drinks were tasty and filled with interesting ingredients. The solo waitress/hostess was attentive to us and it was a full house! This is also a great place to take out-of-town guests for a unique experience.
We did not eat the food, but I had to give it a rating to complete my review.
