Special of the day prime rib was more expensive than anything on menu and price wasn’t mentioned. The prime rib had been pre cooked. Rest food wonderful except the Choco dome the center chocolate was freezer burnt and shell was soft and should have been crackable.

Cozy place. Limited menu but the name says it all! Wine and steak in a cave(Grotto) what’s not to love! Michel was a great server(did I spell it right
Lol) Chloe the hostess was perfect and ran her legs off all night. I couldn’t ask for a better experience with service. But the star of the show was the food! I came in expecting to get a ribeye and baked potato with horseradish yogurt sauce! But I gave it up for the special that night! Prime rib and tyme roasted potatoes tossed in Dijon mustard. It was amazing. No regrets! My wife got
The ribeye so I got a bite or
Two anyway! Nothing negative to say. Great wine selection and the dirty martinis were tip top!

Best eating experience we had while in Eureka Springs for a few days. Service was exceptional. Cave was cool. Tables were far enough apart to feel safe.

Really great food. Perfectly cooked steaks, all of the food was cooked with precision. One of the best desserts I’ve ever had. I ate at some of the other restaurants in the town , some rated higher than Grotto, but my opinion Grotto was the best.

Love the grotto. Started with drinks and fried Brussel sprouts, for the entree my date ordered the sirloin and I had the ribeye. We both ordered them medium rare and they were well done. I feel if your paying over 40 bucks for a steak it should be cooked right. The waiter took a bit to come back, so I didn’t bother saying anything. Nice place though.

It is a very interesting dining area. The service was excellent and our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and wines. The food was fantastic. We had a great time. I would definitely go back. The wines they had were good but a little bigger selection would be nice.

Great experience as usual. This was our 7th time to visit Grotto. The staff was excellent, service was good, and the food was outstanding. Definitely worth it. My wife had the salmon and Brussel sprouts, while I had the sirloin and fires. The fires were just a little soggy, but everything else was superb. The pan-Asian wings as an appetizer are a must try as well. We will definitely be back next time in Eureka.

The Grotto is an incredible restaurant. We had an excellent meal with a great waitress and environment. The food was superb and the prices were so reasonable. It completely blew away all of our expectations and we will definitely be back. It was a 4 hour drive from our home to Eureka and we would easily do it again for the Brisket Au Jus sliders alone. Excellent service, excellent food, and excellent ambiance.

Outstanding in every way! This was our first visit and we did not know what to expect. We will definitely be back! The ribeye was perfectly cooked to medium rare as ordered and so tender that I could cut it with a butter knife! The salmon that my wife ordered was even better! It was perfection! One of the best I’ve ever tasted. Without question the best salmon we’ve had in Arkansas. And the acorn squash was like having dessert with your meal. Our server Raven, was excellent, attentive without being intrusive. Again, our experience was outstanding in ever way! Bravo to the entire team!!!

We have gone to the Grotto several times over the last few years. Every other visit was great. They did this time was just OK. I have to wonder if this is a result of fewer options due to Covid but I would have preferred no steak options vs expensive bad steak. The BBQ brisket Mac and cheese was still wonderful and totally a reason to eat at this location.

The owner of the B&B where were staying at recommended this as one of her favorite places to eat in Eureka Spring. The setting was so unique and set the mood for the meal. The descriptions of the food on the meal were perfect. We all had different items from duck to brisket sliders. So glad we went. The best meal we had in Eureka Springs.

One last thing, they were doing a great job keep people safe following the guidelines for the virus!
