East Providence has a lot to choose from in the way of great family food. is no exception. They offer a fun take on old favorites and a menu broad enough to satisfy even the most fickle member of any family.

Most eateries offer you the tried-and-true bread basket, but Gregg's takes it a step further, offering a side dish of sliced pickles as well. It's just one way Gregg's provides a fresh spin on a down-home meal.

The unique take on old favorites doesn't stop at pre-dinner fare. Gregg's takes everything from starters to main courses and brands them in memorable ways. The onion rings, for example, don't come in the standard large bowl: they're stacked on a vertical rod, meant to be eaten one-by-one, the smallest on top, of course.

If you're in the mood for something different, the restaurant offers a tender cut of Prime Rib every Saturday night. For those in the mood for something closer to the earth, the Portebella Mushroom Club is a great way to go. Try the sweet potato French fries as your side.

Gregg's is perhaps best known for its homemade, over-the-top desserts and cakes. Strawberry Shortcake and Death by Chocolate are among the most popular. Depending on the month, you can feel good about indulging, as the restaurant features a special dessert each month with part of the proceeds benefiting a local charity.

The food is not the only part of Gregg's that offers diversity. There are different seating sections that accommodate any mood and size of party. At street level is the restaurant's main dining room. Descend a flight of stairs to the lower level and enjoy a less formal Pub Side that boasts a well-paced and casual atmosphere, often with self-seating. With so many options, it's easy to see that any night is a Gregg's night.
