Something Good for Every Member of the Family

We took ten members of our family, several of whom have very specific preferences regarding eating, to the Grotto on a balmy Thursday evening. Each found something her/she liked the description of, and we ordered a few flatbread pizzas, a salad, a burger and a sandwich or two. The food was... read more

This was our first visit to the new location. We really liked the old location. The new place has electronic menu boards and fancy computer registers with electronic markers for food to be delivered to your table. Sometimes the old fashioned way is best. We ordered a pizza, a burger with sweet potato fries, and an avocado chicken sandwich with... More

The menu here is surprisingly diverse and offers some great options. My girlfriend chose a Hawaiian burger plate, while I chose to go with a spicy chicken sandwich. Basic options that both turned out to be a little different than what you've come to expect. The chicken had some awesome cheese and just the right amount of spice. The fries... More

When we walked in we could easily see the menu options on the wall. After we read the menu we walked to the order register to place our order. There are plenty of seats and very roomy. A good choice between tables or booths. The high tech device helping the server know where you are sitting is placed on the... More

Someone recommended these to me! I had to give them a try. Went with a friend who really doesn't like blue cheese but even she liked them. I had salmon and she had a burger. Both of us fell in love and have been back twice!

New to the Springfield area the Grotto has something for everyone. I had a salmon sandwich and the salmon was fantastic. I would highly recommend this venue to all for lunch.

I love that they have gluten free options. And that it's fresh, good quality food. Their salad and grilled chicken is really nice I really like their gluten free pizza too, but they don't have ground beef???? Weird. I don't do pork and prefer beef for protein so that's a bit of a drag. Overall a great place to eat!... More
