Great lunch, pool view and fantastic pizza.

The view of the pool with the aquarium feature was great. Seeing kids slide through the aquarium filled with large fish and sharks was so entertaining. The food and local house beer was fantastic. This is on my list of places to revisit when we go back.

The food is okay and the service is fast. Good if you need a quick meal that isn't fast food. We had an appi platter that we shared and a bit greasy but still not bad. Busy place and if you play keno it is available.

this place has the best food in the nugget. Meatballs, pizza, calamari, coco cake, all yummy!! Pizza crust is super thin, loved it. We eat there twice, and will again. The wait staff was nice but one girl was really pushy , ask once, if I say no, stop asking me. She was trying to get us to order things... More

The Grotto in the Golden Nugget hotel is so close to actually being something in the Las Vegas food scene, but it just falls short. We made reservations with Open Table, and it's a good thing, since there was a substantial wait for those without. We requested a table near the fish tank on the swimming pool side of the... More

We came here for dinner prior to taking on the Fremont Street Experience. We had about a 45 minute wait according to the hostess, but it ended up being only 30, not too bad for a busy night. By the time they seated us the restaurant had cleared out considerably, and there were only a few customers in the place.... More

Expecting something different I guess and getting less than expected. Stopped in at the Grotto after thinking we would go to old Vegas and get off the strip. The food was decent, but the atmosphere was less than desired. Our server was absolutely the best part of the night. She was sweet, very accommodating and was very interactive with our... More

To be fair yes the food was good but I had to give them 4 stars or circles rather just for having one of my new favorite wines....Justin. I had the Italian salad, it was just ok, and the cannelloni which was excellent. They do give you a lot of food and I couldn't even finish mine. The restaurant like... More

Went here for lunch recently. Had one pizza and one spaghetti/meatball plate. The pizza was mediocre/decent. The meatballs did not appear to have been seasoned AT ALL - they tasted just like browned ground beef with zero condiments added. It was not very pleasant and I was unable to even eat half of one. It speaks poorly of the quality... More

The food is very good and service can also be unless they are over-packed! Very consistent from one trip to another.

From the moment we walked in until we left our server was the best. Very attentive but not over whelming. We had the stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer and they were very mouth watering. I had the lasagna, which is the best I have had. Great food great place can't wait to go back.
