The food was ok, the atmosphere is like a cafeteria and you stand in line and wait to order your food. Nothing outstanding at all. I had never been there and had heard people brag about how great it was. Nothing special and service was less than stellar!

There is a nice variety of items to choose from whether you want something heavy or light. The music reminds me of Starbucks. Relaxed atmosphere. Tomato bisque soup is wonderful!!

When in Springfield try the Grotto. Been going for a few years now as part of what I do when in Springfield. I can feed three very health conscious people outstanding quality food for about $40. Their homemade Blue Cheese Chips is an appetizer not to miss. My daughters might accuse me of coming into town just for the "BC... More

My favorites are the blue cheese chips & the steak salad. The salads are large and lettuce is good quality. Great selection from burgers to pizza & salads & salmon. Love it!

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!
