Hi Sam! I'm sorry if the changes are frustrating but please know that it isn't an arbitrary decision. A lot of thought goes into what we put on and conversely, what we take off. Sometimes items are Limited Time only, seasonal or otherwise temporary. Sometimes we don't sell enough of an item to justify it's place on the menu (as... More

I visited the Grotto for the first time last week and found the food to be fabulous. Had a chicken avocado sandwich with sweet potato fries and it was generous enough to share. You order at the counter and are called when it's ready. The only problem I have with it - and kept me from giving 5 stars -... More

Love, love, love The Grotto!! Location is odd, but the food is amazing. Fresh, delicious, great variety. Casual for just hanging out with friends. The bacon cheddar fries are sinfully delicious, salads are HUGE and crisp, and the salmon burger is tasty. I have never been disappointed eating here. Great selections for all types of eaters.

We visited this restaurant because it was close to a conference we were attending. Our taste buds were not disappointed. The blu cheese nachos were amazing and I loved my burger. The food was cooked right and it was just enough. The price was great too. The next time I am in town, I will be going here again.

We LOVE The Grotto!! The food is very good and the servings are generous. Everything is made to order and was better than we had anticipated. They even deducted $0.50 from my sandwich cost when I requested no bun/bread. We will return!

Everything I have eaten here has been great. Their hamburgers are seasoned & cooked to perfection. I have had the homemade chips & sweet potato fries and they were crispy & hot. The Avocado Chicken sandwich is very good and I love the chipolte crema sauce they put on the chicken. I haven't had the pizza, but it also looks... More

I had a salmon sandwich and it was very tasty. The salmon was grilled but juicy and the lime sauce complemented the flavor. The sweet potato fries were crisp and hot. It was a good meal

This place just keeps getting better. Hands down, the best burger and sweet potato fries around. My personal fave is the mushroom & Swiss, my husband loves the bacon cheddar burger. The pizzas are great, as well as some of the vegetarian fare. It's quick, fresh, and has a Cali inspired menu. It also has a patio and serves beer,... More

I love food and i have visited most restaurants in town. I especially love trying new places. The grotto isn't new, but it is in a new location, and certainly one of the highest quality places you can go, for not a lot of money. Everyone who says the food here is "blah" don't know anything about real food. The... More
