This is standard chain Italian. Pizza okay- dinners are offered too. Not an extensive menu but enough to choose from. It's hard to come from New York area to eat Italian.

New to Lewes but have heard about Grotto pizza. Well, I tried it and it is average at best. I know good pizza and this is not it. Service was good. Plenty of open seats to watch the Football playoffs. Probably be back to have a beer and watch sports but won't have pizza. Will try something else next time.

My husband and I went into Grotto's to watch a bowl game and ordered a large pepperoni pizza. There was nothing good about it....cheap pepperoni, blah sauce and cheese. What a huge waste of our time and an insult to our stomachs.They should be ashamed of what they served us. The only reason to walk into this Grotto's is for... More

The pizza was so good on the night we went- Service was perfect too. My real issue sis with the bathroom since I have a daughter in a wheelchair and that stall is not accommodating to fit her wheelchair in there with us. So in the awkward space I have to leave it outside the door and walk her in.... More

Nice little sports bar but I truly wonder what anyone sees good about the pizza here. My wife got the Greek salad and it was literally like from a bag of lettuce and the dressing wasn't even as good as Kens Serious. Don't understand the attraction. But apparently the locals love it. Staff was friendly.

If your looking for a loud, sports oriented bar with pub food, this is the place. Pizza is not really that great, but had to try it as there is a Grotto Pizza every 2 miles in this area of Delaware. Pretty ridiculous.

Take-away Pizza and Wings. Food was excellent. I just found it to be a little too pricey. Service was great.

I grew up in southern Delaware, so I'm a grottos pizza fan. If you're not from here, you should know that it has a unique presentation (cheese/sauce swirl) and a distinct taste. I'm biased, but I have dreams of this pizza. Other items are typical pizza joint items like fried appetizers and subs. It's all decent, but people go for... More

Waitress and food EXCELLANT. Rated he best pizza in the state with multiple locations. Looks small from the outside but is actually bigger on the inside. The booths handle 3 people to a side easily. The pizza was good with a crust that is not too thin and not too thick. You can fold the pizza so that it fits... More

Love Grottos Bakers choice Pizza and broccoli bites. We love it so much, we will drive an hour for dinner to get it! Not a great beer selection. Free popcorn while you wait! Fun atmosphere.
