Easy and good

This was my first time here with my wife and friends after hearing it was good. I am not the type that is a fan of chain pizza places but this was definitely a good choose. We had six people on a Saturday and didn't wait a second to be seated. The pizza is thin but has a good flavor.... read more

Had a disaster at the Dewey Beach location and walked out. Arrived at the Lewes location and told the greeting manager about what happened. He seated us immediately and rolled out the red carpet service. Loved the pizza, atmosphere, and VIP service. We will always stop at this location from now on and so should you. The Fiesta Grande pizza... More

The pizza was very good, the staff was very nice. We also had wings .. My daughter states "Oh, I loved them". It was a typical boardwalk joint but popular for a reason.. the food is good!

I have been going to Grottos starting with their first location at Harvey's Lake. Basically as one reviewer said this is a restaurant with a theme. Quite frankly my kids are over and I go there to eat. It is on the way to the beach so you will get families with kids. It is busy but large enough that... More

Grotto's pizza, salads and sandwiches are delicious. We had an excellent waitress. Best customer service at the beach, she went out of her way to do anything she could. Games and noisy kids were a bit overwhelming. This is a great place for families w kids but not couples.

The Lewes grottos bathroom smells bad. Seems like there is mold in the building. I always sneeze when I visit.

I was very impressed with how good the pizza was. My mother and grandmother were so impressed that they bought two bottles each of the sauce. Our waitress was very nice and it had a fun sports atmosphere.

Having spent (and still do on occasion) time in Northeastern PA, the home of the original Grotto Pizza (3 of them, including the original, are still there), I absolutely love it. Everything from the atmosphere, drinks, and of course, the pizza. That is why we were so excited to finally get to a Delaware Grotto the first time visiting Dewey... More

I always stop here when in the area, and my server was Juliana. I've seen her work before, but never had her. She is very pleasant, positive, and one of the best. Food was prompt, cooked well, and loved everything! Pepperoni Pizza (large), Chicken wings (mild) and loaded fries. I think she was overworked but still was amazing. Highly recommend.

Very disappointed that they would serve their gelato freezer-burned. It was so hard that the worker quit trying to fill our container and just gave us less.
