While visiting Ocean City, MD, my wife and I stopped at the Grotto Pizza after viewing the Festival of Lights. We were seated inside (social distancing is in effect) and placed our order. We waited for a while and was advised that there was a...mistake with our order and it would be ready soon. Not a problem. Our Pepperoni and Cheese pizza arrived a short time later and tasted delicious. Grottos is the only place my wife will eat pizza at the beach.More

After several attempts to call with no answer we ordered online for pickup curbside. When we called they seemed confused but quickly brought out our order. Pizza is good but at a little more than $20 a pie it seemed pricy, even for a tourist...area.More

We ate here for the first time. had salads and a 12" pizza, that was plenty enough food for the 2 of us. The salads were big and the pizza was very good. It's not a greasy pizza place, but does have a bar. We...will be back.More

Got one delivered to our condo, very fast service and great food. Try the pepperoni with onions and peppers. Out of this world.

As a teenager/young adult no trip to the DE or MD beaches were complete without a stop at Grotto Pizza. I took my family to Ocean City for a long weekend and thought it would be good to introduce my family to the pizza I...always enjoyed when I was younger. We’re a family of three with different tastes so we were able to settle on a personal cheese and a large with mixed toppings. We decided to throw in a 12 piece wings as well. We ordered over the phone for takeout after viewing the menu online. Of course the online menu does not include pricing. It’s foolish of me not to ask the price as the order was placed but I assumed it would be standard pizza place prices. When I arrived for pickup I was shocked to find the total was almost $55. Yes $55 for one large, one personal and 12 wings. That’s outrageous! Never again will I visit a Grotto pizza. There pizza is good but it isn’t price gouging good. There are numerous other places here in Ocean City to get a good pizza for a reasonable price.More

I always look forward to Grotto Pizza during our annual trip to OCMD. I was terribly disappointed this year, however. It was just not the same. What happened to the delicious pie to which I had become accustomed?!? I don’t know if they changed the...recipe or if it was a different contributing factor. But after this year I may never go back. The pizza was mediocre at best. The sauce was thick and over cooked, the cheese wasn’t stringy and melty like usual. The buttery flavor was missing. Although the crust was crispy (which I love). It’s like all of the best parts of that Grotto Pizza taste never existed. Sorry to say, I was less than impressed and I probably won’t recommend it to anyone again.More

We ordered the Italian and the cheese steak subs, both excellent. We also ordered a large pizza, it was average, nothing special. The kids had chicken fingers and fries, not to bad. The staff was very friendly and courteous. Overall a positive experience.

Good gluten free pizza is extremely hard to come by. However, Grotto's has the BEST gluten free pizza I have ever had! Even my non gluten free friends were amazed at how delicious it was. Service was phenomenal and we topped off our meal with...some creamy gelato!More

We get dinner from Grotto's every year when we come to OC and this year was just awful! I found not one, but two hairs on my pizza; fries tasted like the freezer; and despite asking for extra crispy wings, they were soggy and slimy....Definitely a disappointment and will not be returning in the future. They have a terrible system for picking up phone and online orders - we arrived at the pick up time but had to wait in the same line as all the dine in customers. We waited in line for 45 minutes just to pick the food up. Bummer for sure.More

Have been going to OCMD for 40 years and have only had Grotto Pizza one time, at a NASCAR race at Dover (and wasn't impressed). Needed a late afternoon snack after driving into Ocean City and time to waste till we could check into our...hotel. We chose Grotto pizza only because the website said they have gluten free pizza. Sat at a nice covered outdoor area which was set up for social distancing. The gluten free member of our party said it was the best pizza they ever had and was very impressed. The rest of us shared a pizza and it was delicous. We didn't know what we were missing! Sweet sauce and a great taste. Actually craving it now and wish there was one closer to me but unfortunately there isn't. We will go back again next time we're close to one!More
