This place was recommended by the local lady who owns the B&B where we were staying, telling us that it was good, plain home style food, served in a friendly atmosphere. She was spot on! The menu is varied enough to please anyone, the food is freshly prepared, very high quality , no fuss home style cooking . There is... More

Our waitress was great on the second half of a double shift & still cracking jokes making us laugh heartly, its the servers sometimes that make it a memorable time.. Had a few manhattan's, we skipped apps because we read portions are large. The seafood newburg was just as I remember from my childhood going to somewhat fancy places/dinners in... More

So if your looking for an elegant Italian restaurant then this is not your place, but if you are looking for a good meal, friendly staff and decent prices then you'll love it here. The chicken parm is delicious and I love the chicken Marsala. Salmon is the big favorite for my husband, and my son loves the toasted raviolis!... More

Excellent family eatery! If you want ambience, this is not the place. If you want great food and good service for a decent price...Greg's is it! Love their lunches and dinners! Never had a bad meal or service in 12 years!

Hole in the wall, family run, hidden gem! I used to go every Saturday evening with my family growing up, for the early bird special (arrive and seated before 4pm). Cheese and crackers/ bread and butter pre-meal are offered with free refills. Salad and dessert comes with every meal. Meals are great portions. Homemade sauce and feels like you're eating... More

Don't let the looks fool you! This restaurant has been here for many years, and the decor and building does kind of give that away, but it has nothing to do with how good this place is. The few people who gave only two stars either caught them on an unusually bad day, or are being exceptionally nitpicky. I've NEVER... More

Three of us arrived about 5:30 and were pleased to find an extensive menu available on their Early Bird special. The waitress came over - very hurried (though there weren't a lot of people at that point) but friendly and took our orders. She brought out two soups and one salad for my husband. They serve the dressing on the... More

Husband and I went to Head of Charles Regatta in Boston and rather than trying trying to eat in a crowded place at Harvard Square, he suggested we go to Greg's, as husband is a native of Watertown, MA. We retrieved our car at Alewife Station and drove to Watertown. We each ordered club sandwiches which were excellent (took half... More

Good value and homestyle cooking. Lots of variety on the menu and large portions, we found that one dinner was plenty for two people, as you typically the meal includes soup or salad, entree and two sides.
