The Grotto has grown from a little hole-in-the-wall to a fairly hopping place to grab a fresh dinner. My husband LOVES the blue cheese fries and I love the Cobb salad. There aren't a ton of gluten-free items now that the pizza is gone, but...More

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.

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.
