I Love PA Grotto's, but this one was Just - Eh

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... read 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.

Good food. Great Service. The staff very friendly and helpful. We were seated and served quickly. Our server even pointed out a way to save on our son's meal. We would definitely go back

Great food, but it can get expensive. Less crowded than the one in Rehoboth, and better service. Always a stop every time we are in the area.

We recently moved to Lewes and started trying all the local restaurants. Many people talked about Grotto Pizza and since they are such a large chain of them in this area we decided to give them a try. We tried both the one in Lewes and Rehoboth and found nothing great about either of them. The Service was fair (we... More

Cheap eats. Quick turnover. Our server destiny did a nice job considering the volume and turnover of her section. Restaurant is dirty. 20 mins for Caesar salad (no add on) appetizer. Asked for a kids menu (clearly a 4 yo child - need kids menu) - menu is a giant ad for grotto with limited kid activities given the wait... More

Service been good, lots for kids to do in arcade. Food is awesome, particularly mild wings and the pizza is amazing. Also excited that Gambrills, MD will have one, which isn't too far in Columbia where I live.
