Grottoes Reviews

3 reviews
I really love living in Grottoes, as it is a sleepy, rural town with all the amenities needed for family life. The grocery stores and gas stations are pleasant and clean, and the restaurants have variety and are delicious. We have a wonderful fire department and rescue squad, but the police department leaves something to be desired. In most cases they really only seem to be hunting for speeding cars and not patrolling for danger. The town saying is to call "7/11 and not 911" to reach them as well. It could be negative public opinion, but this is what I have seen.

Grottoes is a nice quiet town. it is a good place for children to grow up and go to school. It would be nice if there were more restaurants or stores close by. The restaurants that are available are very good.
Family friendly and very quiet. Cute town. Not much to do though and few restaurants. The town park is nice and clean.
