"Unforgettable Experience"

Stopped at The Grotto while I was in town traveling, it was an unforgettable experience that I still tell my friends about.

"They Always Have New Beers"

Love how they always have new beers on tap. Rarely do I visit and they have the same beer on tap as my last visit. I have found many new favorites due to their staff helping me decide on something different.

"If you like beer, then this place is for you"

If you like really good drinks, then this is place for you in Ann Arbor. Great selection of Craft Beer, and a constantly changing selection of cocktails, bourbon and other great spirits. Staff were friendly, knowledgable, and went out of their way to describe their drinks. Prices were very reasonable. Great outdoor area to sit and watch the world go buy.

"Feels like home here"

Good vibes all around. Went here for a drink waiting for an appointment in aa. Came back after for 3 more. Feels like home. Great people work here. Nice work Grotto! Check this place out. Great outdoor seating too!
