We were passing through Springfield with our kids and grandkids looking for a place for lunch. We found The Grotto through an online service and had a fantastic meal. Our ages ranged from 1-61 years and we all found something we liked on the menu. I mention this because when I looked on The Grotto's website it identified itself as an "adult" choice. Actually our grandchildren loved their kids' menu. The restaurant is very clean and fresh-looking.
We started with the Bleu Cheese chips and quickly went back for a second order for our group to share. The grandkids ate from the kids menu and had pizzas and chicken fingers. Very good value that included refillable drinks. The adults had a little of everything: Santa Monica pizza (fabulous), burgers (lots of different and trendy combinations), Mahi mahi sandwich (great tartar souce), soups, and salads (the side salads were a little overdressed). If we could return, I would get one of the large salads. They looked delicious.
The food is reasonably priced, fast, casual, and cooked to order. Order at the counter and pick up the food when ready, but everything is served on real plates and help carrying was offered. The staff was very friendly and cleared plates in a timely manner.
Now I am looking for an excuse to return to Springfield just to eat at The Grotto.
