Stopped in here one day to have dinner with family that lives in the area. We ordered a small bacon pizza, large regular pizza, kids hot dog meal and a french onion soup as our entrees. Our waitress did NOT realize the soup was the entree for one of our family members and delivered it as an appetizer about 7 minutes after ordering. Really? Who eats soup as an appetizer? It took an additional 20 minutes to get our pizzas and kids hot dog meal. We did get to nibble on a basket of complimentary popcorn while we waited for it though, so that was a plus.

Overall, we had a decent experience. The atmosphere was OK. It is a little dark in this location. It does appear to have had some updates made but could use some light. There is ample parking as this location is not that busy, which is a plus as it usually results in immediate seating. Service on the other hand was a tad slow, as it took close to 30 minutes after ordering to get our pizzas. Our waitress was friendly. Food was good overall. The fries were just OK. Hot dog was BURNT terribly so our child did NOT want to eat it. Bacon pizza was a hit. I, however, prefer their regular cheese pizza. It is sweet, yet a little zesty. Excellent gourmet pizza.

I would eat here again IF in the area. Pizza is good, but service could be speedier.

Note: Attached bar, small kids arcade on location. Delivery available.

6 of us went on Friday Sept 14. We ordered beach fries with cheese for the table. I got the antipasto salad-chopped with the house Italian dressing. And we all split a pizza. It was very good. So good that we got another Grotto's pizza on Saturday night for take out!

On July 22, we were on vacation in the Millsboro, DE, area and ordered pizza and a salad for take out. The pizza was overcooked and had little toppings (we ordered 2 extra). We asked for no bacon or onion on the salad, yet bacon was sprinkled throughout the entire thing. They forgot to include the salad dressing we ordered in the bag, and also there was no cutlery included to eat the salad. There were no prices on the internet menu, and when we received our check, there were no prices on our receipt either. Our bill was $30 and change for a 12" pizza and a salad....don't mind paying a fair price for a good meal...but this meal failed in in both categories!

Our meal was very good. My husband liked his Italian sub. Our friends really enjoyed there chicken cheesesteak. The kitchen did mess it up and sent out a beef cheesesteak but our server Molly was very professional She took good care of us. We didn't order salads but they looked very good too!

I don’t know why people go crazy for Grotto’s Pizza. I don’t enjoy it at all. Season less sauce, minimal cheese, no taste. The cheesteaks are good, and the salads are decent. But stay away from the pizza, unless you are in a real hurry.
