Always great food and service

Love the posole. I have it almost every time I go there to eat. Don't go there for intimacy and quiet conversation. This place is always hopping and it's worthy of the wait. Not a beer drinker but heard raves from the table next to us! So quaff your beer, gets some great food, artsy... read more

The Green Well has predictably good food if you like their menu, and the service to match. Parkings becoming an issue on Cherry Street at peak times, but not this particular day or time. In retrospect I maybe should have picked a quieter location, but they did their best to get us their most private seats. We all had salads,... More

Nice place. Good Menu selection. Quality fresh foods. The price is a little 'upscale', but not for this quality level

My department at work has a group meeting at this restaurant once a year. Each time we visit it seems there is a different menu, and whatever we choose is very good. We have tried various appetizers that all of us have loved, along with several different entree choices that match each employee's diet or favorites. It can be busy... More

Whether it's a salad, sandwich or entree, each is unique in its flavor pairings, bread, vegetables and dressings. All enhance the so fresh vegetables or meat. Succulent meats, really big shrimp, etc., cooked to perfection. Dishes from all over use spices, herbs, smoking, etc. smartly. Well versed servers are fun and efficient. I've sampled about 1/2 the menu and need... More

I have always enjoyed my experiences at the Greenwell! Their service is great, the variety of meals are equally great, and the pricing is not bad. I personally love to sit on their patio in the summer and enjoy their fish tacos. They have a decent wine selection, too! For those of us with dietary restrictions, you'll find some options... More

Any trip to Grand Rapids MUST include a meal at the Green Well. For us, it is typically brunch or lunch and we have never been disappointed. 20 draught beer selections -- almost exclusively craft beers with a focus on Michigan breweries -- that rotate regularly. Decent wine list and interesting handmade cocktails as well. On the lunch menu, the... More
