The place was packed and very loud, but being a pub, that didn't scare us off. The food did. The truffle fries were ok, except for the excess of salt, which we could not get rid of. The BBQ pork with polenta is more like a pulled pork on top of a cream that resembled a soft scrambled egg. Maybe... More

I have been to this restaurant several times and they consistently have great food. Their dishes are healthy, unique, and put together well. At a place like this I expect high prices, but here they are moderate. They have a nice selection of alcoholic drinks as well and the service has always been fine. Once, a host even gave me... More

The restaurant in very popular and doesn't take reservation unless you have a large group (ten or more i believe). Nice selection of meals and sandwiches along with salads and appetizers to please most dinners. They serve a nice selection of Michigan craft beers as well as national craft brews and popular national brands. They also have a nice wine... More

Came here with colleagues and needed a table for eight. While they were accommodating and friendly at first, out server was not the greatest and disappeared many times. It was loud inside and the food...ugh, what can I say...there was LOTS of it, but it was kinda sloppy and mediocre at best. I guess if you were binge drinking and... More

We have been to this restaurant several times in Sept and October with our family, and always been very pleased with both the food and the service. The menu has nice creative combinations;things you wont find at just any place, and our servers have always been very pleasant and prompt. This restaurant is very popular so you need to arrive...

This is one of my favorite GR locations for an eclectic meal selection. For the Foodies looking for a great place, you cannot miss the Green Well. Be prepared to wait on the weekends and even during the weekday as the place is not extremely large. Groups of 6 or more can reserve seats. Great selection of Michigan beer and... More

Lots of complex offerings to keep foodies happy here. BBQ Orkney and polenta did not disappoint. Others raved about the seafood boil, fish tacos and grilled cheese. Their version of Pad Thai missed. I question why that would be on menu anyway, though it was disclosed to us that it's not like traditional, and I get it. However, it's one... More

No matter when we try Green Well, it is busy, and rightly so. Food is good, creative and fresh. Love the patio in the summer.

Met at the door right away and seated outside on the patio on a nice fall evening. Wait staff was attentive but not overbearing. Full bar available and menu items with something for everyone. I ordered the Mac and Cheese, but believe me this was no ordinary mac and cheese. The portion size was more than I could so there... More
