Stopped in on a Saturday night at 5. We were seated promptly and server appeared very quickly. Food didn't take long to arrive and we were out of there in no time. As far as service, it was 5 stars. The pizza was good although not great. Could have used more cheese and sauce. Will probably go again but could... More

I am not sure which Grotto pizza I went too, but either way, I did not care for it. The brushetta was a joke and it came with big pieces of toast. I had the cheese steak which I could make so much better at home and the small size was small! My mom had meatballs and spaghetti and said... More

Even though it's a chain, the place was clean, staff friendly and very fast service. Good place for families, not a romantic setting. Serve whole pizzas but also personal size, salads, pasta, calzones. Try the new mini appetizer--meatballs with melted mozzarella--it's a meatball sub without the bread! I would definitely eat here again if I wanted something good and quick.

They have a Good pizza, if you like very thin crust. and a Nice selection of toppings to choose from. If you're on a diet, they have several nice entree size salads. I had a large hickey Caesar salad, very nice flavor to the dressing. Over all a nice experience.

I have been coming here for years and make it a habit to keep coming back. If you are in Bethany, this is the place for pizza. Make sure to stop in for a pie or just grab a slice to go.

Research shows that the pizza you love is the one you grew up with as a child. Since I did not make it to the Delaware/Maryland shores until I was well passed childhood, the Grotto pizza is only OK in my book; there are others I like more. But I can say that the pizza is consistent in terms of... More

A chain for pizza restaurants. Our phone in order was not ready when promised. It was hot and that was about it. Does the sauce cost sooo much that many chains put on a small scoop and run the red to cover the top. Flavor is just not there, the sauce adds to the taste right. The next time we... More

Heard great reviews about this place. We went up to the ultra-convenient window on the side-boardwalk where you could order to go...and got our pizza in good time, but just don't like the Grotto taste. I've been told by folks you either love it or hate it..sorry but we just don't like it (hate to use hate!).

My husband MUST get this pizza every time we visit, about every couple of years. It reminds him of the pizza we got at Purdue University. The crust is fantastic with a great sauce, that is spicier than sweet. The toppings are fresh and the meats are not greasy. I get the salad. It is average.

I've heard all of the hype about Grotto Pizza and I have to say, I'd much rather force down a pan pizza from Pizza Hut. The pizza is average at best and overpriced. Glad I tried it, won't try it again.
