The service was excellent, the prices were right, and Greg's has the feel of a neighborhood restaurant with many regular customers. Unfortunately, the food was mediocre, although we didn't have any pasta. The Greek salad had iceberg lettuce and the salmon and broccoli were much too greasy. Can recommend only if you are in the neighborhood.

It was on Monday. After 9PM (they close at 10PM). Our pastas were good. The portions where huge, especially amount of sauce that was put atop of my pasta.

A nice local place. Nice Italian food without the high prices or frills. Many people know each other by name. Relaxed bar where you can eat with people from all walks of life. Dining room - fills up fast. Very generous meals - enough for 2 meals. Fast service too.

A nice local restaurant which serves delicious Italian food. We thought the food and drinks were a great value for the money.

Awesome classic cocktails... My fave there is their Old Fashioned. They have a great steak and prime rib, love their bbq chicken and salmon meals... And chicken parm is really good. My last meal there was mezza mezza bc the waitress was super busy to the point she was missing minor details in the order but important ones before zooming... More

Go!!! - if you are looking to relax and enjoy a good (but perhaps not extra ordinary) meal at a very reasonable price ... this is a neighborhood eatery and bar in the classic sense. This sort of place is fast disappearing ... - for those reviews yt? Hat suhgest the food here is mediocre - they largely miss the... More

The 4 stars other reviewers have given this restaurant convinced me to try it. Bad choice; should have turned around and walked out based on the musty smell as we walked in. The décor is old and tacky. The food is bland and poor quality. Luckily I could see inside the kitchen and it appeared to be clean. Waitresses were... More

Tuck into a red checkered-cloth table or booth, order up a classic cocktail (Old Fashioned - Manhattan) to sip and relax before your eggplant parm and ziti appear. This neighborhood go-to spot for red sauce Italian food and comfort food such as prime rib or baked scrod throws you back in time to that old family restaurant you remembered as... More

I live near Greg's, but have not had the occasion to try it until recently. I don't think I'll be back. I generally like neighborhood places, but Greg's just seems to set the bar too low. It's a friendly old-fashioned restaurant, where you expect the waitress to call you "honey" and serve you well prepared simple food. The waitress part... More
