Birthday fun

Chart house is usually where I spend happy hour but due to the weather, they were closed. Grotto was awesome. The drinks were great and the bartender was friendly and fun. The nasty storm did not stop us from having a good time for my birthday. I will definitely be back.

Reasonably priced. Decent food. Good service. I would say overall a nice place to use your comps but with all the great Italian restaurants in Atlantic City I would only recommend it if you were in the Golden Nugget or have comps from the casino. Enjoyed the pasta and sausage dish and the tomato cabrese and the menu was very... More

On our first visit, two weeks ago we were at the bar happy hour and had to wait 45 minuites for our appetizer and another half a hour for our meal. They sent us a quality survey and we filled it out. The manager contacted us and told us that on our next visit she would take care of us.... More

My wife myself and our children eat here often. The staff is always top notch and the food is great. We live forty minutes away and yet we travel to Grotto some months three or more times. We normally request Maria as our server but are happy with whomever if she is not available. Very nice atmosphere. Great place even... More

We went back to Grotto's after being there a few times before in the summer. At that time everything was good. Well not so much anymore. They decided to change the menu, which was awesome, and went with a lot less choices and raised the prices. The choices were poor without a lot of entrée options. But ok we gave... More

Hubby and I frequent the Grotto at least two times a week.. We love their staff and the house red is excellent. We dine in the bar area not only for the specials but because the staff is so much fun. Especially Billy, Jose and the new manager is very attentive. The food is always delicious, the staff will go... More

Grabbed a quick lunch here while at the Golden Nugget for a conference. The food was pretty good. The staff were friendly. The options at the Golden Nugget were a bit limited and the hours of operation were even more limiting.
