Gregory's is a 5th genration restaurant. It has the feeling of a family owned business, not slick and glossy chain. We had not been there for quite a few years, but we will be back. My husband's clams were very fresh. My 88 year old mother loved her food; she knows what she likes. The service staff tried very hard to please. The added bonus was Sinatra playing in the background, not loud enough to interfer with conversation.
Cannot comment on the Bar -- there are separate entrances for the bar and restaurant, so there is no need to interact with bar patrons.
