Atmosphere was upbeat, lively and bright. Order your food at the front and then find your table. All the options looked good. Food was deliverd quickly to our table. I had the salmon which was excellent, my daughter had a salad which she really liked.

My sister and I stopped for lunch. Food was fresh , fast and reasonably priced. I am sure we will be coming back. I would recommend the pizza and salad combo.

I went with a friend for lunch. I originally wanted their turkey burger, but they stopped carrying it. My second choice was the chicken avacado sandwich and it was amazing. I like this restaurant a lot. The salads are very fresh as well.

It is hard to find Ahi Tuna in Springfield but this place has it perfected! I've been multiple times and it is always perfect. This is a new favorite for me.

First of all, I love the food at The Grotto. I've eaten there a dozen times and have not had any issues at all. Unfortunately, I recently ate there with my daughter - a pick two and I added a cup of the tomato bisque soup. I took two bites of the soup and went up to the counter to... More

Great food, urban chic atmosphere, reasonable prices. For the price of a fast food meal, you can get REAL food made fast and delicious. The chicken sandwich is the best in town!! My husband knows this is my favorite spot in Springfield for casual dining. Don't miss it!

Stopped here for lunch per recommendation from a local dentist office. I ordered (bun less)grotto burger w Jack, avocado & jalapeños & chips with warm blue cheese. The food had delicious flavor & the service was prompt. Clean but somewhat cold atmosphere...I will definitely return!

Placed a carryout order at 11:43 am (I received a fax confirmation at this time), arrived at 12:28 pm and they had not yet submitted the order ticket to the kitchen.
