This was our fourth time here and the service was timely and good. I genuinely enjoy spicy food and interesting cocktails so I had both the “pepper” cocktails and try and they were tasty but spicy! I had the three other people in my party try them and one even had to go to the bathroom cause it was too hot and uncomfortable for them to handle. I feel like there is a clever and subtle way to explain that the cocktails are spicier than the average person might like.

I can not speak highly enough about Captain Gregory's. Getting into the restaurant through the secret door is fun, the room is amazingly decorated, our server was so so knowledgeable about everything on the menu and so willing to assist in customizing everything. We were a group of six coming for before dinner drinks. We tried a variety of their signature cocktails, each one delicious. The real treat was the food. We shared an order of the deviled eggs, crab hushpuppies, and the porkbelly. It came out, well paced, in that order, delivered by James, the chef himself. Every bite of food was better than the last. We were thrilled with everything we ordered. My only regret is that we made dinner plans. I look forward to going again and ordering one of everything on the food menu.

Fun, cozy speakeasy with delicious and unique cocktails. We enjoyed going on Sunday for their special sunday drinks that you can't find any other day! We didn't try the food but the menu looks delicious. A little pricey but worth the experience!

This was our second time to visit this establishment and it is a wonderful experience. I will say that this time took a little longer to get our food even though we saw others getting their 2nd order before we received our first.

I would definitely recommend Captain Gregory‘s for a date night or a fun night out with a small group. I do recommend making reservations at least a week in advance because it does get full. The bartenders are true mixologists and knew exactly how to create an amazing experience with different cocktails. If you don’t find something on the menu that you like you can tell them your tastes and likings and they will create something of your liking. Absolutely one of the best speakeasies I have been to!

The speakeasy style was phenomenal compared to other “speakeasy themed” bars. The service was incredible and the drinks were creative and delicious. Also the fact you can get donuts from the connected donut shop is a huge bonus.

This place is amazing. I've come 5 or 6 times and never had a bad experience. The cocktails are impressive and surprisingly so is the food- something I didn't expect considering it is not their focus. I also like that the service staff are knowledgeable and willing to help make the right selections. The only thing I wish is that the cocktail menu didn't change (but then where would be the fun in that, right?) I love how intimate it is. It's nice to go to a bar with high quality food and drink without having to get dressed up or having to deal with loud blaring music. Almost always a trade off but this place has it all! Casual dress code, quiet enough for a conversation, music is ambient but not annoying, service, food and beverage are excellent and far from casual. Can't beat that.

Drink menu was interesting and drinks were good.
Menu, which I knew going in was limited, was VERY limited. I can't comment on the food because the server never came to ask us if we wanted to order.
Service was poor. We were barely acknowledged or spoken to by the bartender and the server only spoke to us to seat us. We ended up finishing our drinks and closed out the tab to patronize a nearby place.

Don't waste your time.
