Went to have birthday drinks. This was our first time there.
The secret door made it an enjoyable time from the start.
We’ll be back!

This place was really nice! Low key, fun ambience, and really nice staff. The mixed drinks were different and quite good. We had fun!

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 is a wonderful, intimate little space with fantastic cocktails and delicious small plates. The menus for both change regularly so it is always fun to go back. It is a little pricey but worth it for a fun night out.

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.

Have already referred friends here. It is as advertised. Service was excellent. Food was very good. Drinks are top shelf. Only wish there was more space. The corn nuts would be suggested when the drinks arrive as it's not good to drink alcohol on an empty stomach. The deviled eggs are exquisite and pair well with the pork belly. We also enjoyed the brussel sprouts.
I had two different bourbon drinks and my better half had Above the Clouds and a white wine. All were very good. It made for a nice Valentine's day.

This place is always fun to go to for a special occasion or impromptu date night. Most recently we went with two other couples and had a great experience. The cocktails were fun, the food was delicious and it doesn't hurt that we got a bunch of free donuts as dessert.

The cocktails at Captain Gregory's are amazing! Not only are they delicious and innovative, but they also have a real wow-factor, and the menu changes every month. The food is also delicious, though some of the portions are strangely large. The popcorn is well-sized for two people to share, but the brussels sprouts come in a massive container that was barely half empty when we left (which is a shame, as they were $15!).
