Great Value

The food at Grotto is outstanding. I had the Chicken Rotisserie Salad. To say its the best tasting salad I've ever had doesn't do it justice. The service here, just like in the rest of the hotel, was 5 stars.

My husband and I were at the Golden Nugget for some slot machine action. Situated just off the casino floor is the Grotto. We stopped during the Happy Hour at the bar. There is special pricing for beer, wine, cocktails and martinis. The bartender seem more occupied in getting his bar condiments set up than taking our order. Finally, my... More

I visit the Golden Nugget monthly and each time I ate at Grotto, which is located on the casino floor, my meal and the service have been wonderful. The bread, the pasta, the salads.....everything is delicious. The only thing they need is better signage!

Was staying at the Golden Nugget and decided to try Grotto for happy hour. I didn't have food, but did have one of their specialty drinks - Chambord bellini. I'm not one for fruity drinks, but that Chambord bellini was awesome! All three of them... My sisters were with me and food as well as drinks - they both enjoyed... More

Located right in the middle of the Golden Nugget casino floor, which gives Gratto a lively and festive atmosphere. Staff is very friendly, everyone seems to enjoy working here. Our waiter was great, one of the best we've had in a long time. Food is definitely up to par. The fresh warm bread is great dipped in the garlic olive... More

Last year we sat and had dinner at the grotto and the food was great and the Service equal. This year we decided to sit in the Bar... More

Decided to have a late night snack, wasn't sure what we wanted and noticed the Grotto had a late happy hour, decided on appetizers and drinks. Ordered the stuff mushrooms which were awesome, also decided to order a small pizza, very thin crust which we enjoyed very much. Would definitely eat here again.

We enjoyed our dinner at the Grotto. Service was great. Food was well prepared and served quickly. We had canniloni (excellent) parmesan chicken (excellent) lasagna (ok, but no one makes it like Mama does) Tiramisu (excellent) The only draw back for me was the atmosphere. You are stuck right in the middle surrounded by slot machines.
