    We visited this restaurant as part of our honeymoon and we were so glad we did! It was a great experience. The location was very cool. We were seated right next to the spring and had a great view of the cave wall. The service was also great. Our waitress was very friendly and answered all of our questions. Everything we ordered was delicious. I highly recommend the mushroom and brie soup!

    The spicy margarita was amazing….had to have 2! The mushroom Brie bisque was very tasty! I loved that one could order the small plates & additional sides, like the squash & the baked potato were only $4. each. We were able to enjoy more items and spend my money on the spicy margaritas! 👍

    It was very loud. Thought it was more in a cave but that is not the feel I got. Steak was ordered medium and it can out more like rare and had to send it back. Came back medium rare.

    Had a very nice meal. Red Sangria was one of the best we've had (and we work hard at sampling them!). Brussel sprouts were also very good. Pork chip was a bit dry. Salmon was good but nothing superbly unique. Waitress, Sarah, was excellent -- both friendly and attentive. Costs were moderate. For a town of less than 2500, this was better than expected.

    Ordered filet mignon w/bearnaise with crab meat. Sauce overwhelmed the steak flavor, would recommend order without the sauce. Steak flavor good, a little under-cooked from medium request. Potatoes with horseradish yogurt were delicious. Salmon was medium rare, smoked shrimp with ciabatta was tasty. Issue with staff cleaning, ie sweeping steps while we were still eating. Our reservation was for 9pm, the only available time. I feel we should be given ample time to complete our meal before staff began cleaning up for the evening. We finished before 10pm. Overall a good experience but felt rushed to leave. 4 Stars.

    Great service and food. We vacation in Eureka Springs in May and celebrate my daughter’s birthday at the Grotto every year. This time we needed to add an additional 4 people to our reservation for 3 at the last minute, and the restaurant worked with us to accommodate a table for 7. We were not disappointed. Everyone was very satisfied with the entrees they selected: pork chop, plank salmon, filet mignon, special beef short ribs, as well as sides, especially sautéed mushrooms, acorn squash, and appetizers. We will be back next year!
