Always a Great Meal

My wife and I eat here about once a month. The food is always remarkable. They have the regular menu, but they also have the one-off nightly offerings, which I stick too. The chef is inventive and I you will find the menu to be accessible, but gourmet. I have never had a miss here. Ample local... read more

We were in town for family business, and met with friends in Grand Rapids. They suggested one of their favorites, the Green Well. It is located in a fun, trendy area, and parking was no issue for dinner on a week night. That is a plus for starters. We had a great waitress, who was very helpful. I had the... More

This is a neat little restaurant in a fun urban part of Grand Rapids. The menu is outstanding - every item looked inventive and delicious! The food was indeed as tasty as promised. Our service wasn't outstanding but friendly and efficient enough. I liked the local brews on draft. Great place to eat if you're visiting from out of town... More

If your a hipster you think this place is the best. If you are the rest of us, you won't have a bad experience, but its certainly not one of the best 10 places to eat or drink otpr handpg out in grand rapids. More likein the top 100.

A work luncheon for our team was the occasion to eat here. I have been wanting to try it and was not disappointed. I enjoyed the atmosphere. Our waitress was on point and friendly. The food came out at a decent time. The only complaint I have is parking is a challenge. Aside from that everything was great. I can... More

We went to the Green Well on the advice of friends. Good friends and good advice. We ate outside on a night with changeable weather. It was a great choice. The menu choices included specials of the day. We all chose from them. Great choices and great service. The appetisers were almost a meal in themselves. All I can say... More

I came to this renovated area of Grand Rapids, just outside of the downtown area last year. I remembered that I had a great meal there and decided to go back, rather than to a "corporate place". They have healthy drinks, craft beers and a variety of menu items that were a cut above many other restaurants. I had the... More

We live right down the street from The Green Well. Have never had a bad meal there. The food succeeds our expectations each visit.

I know the owners father and he first told me about the green well shortly after it opened. I took my family there and got the Mac n cheese as he had recommended. (Though I was skeptical) It was great! Love the food, the atmosphere ... Great great place! Sadly I moved away from GR but when I visit I... More

Nice atmosphere. They have a good selection of beer on tap, including Michigan beers and some decent wine selection. The food menu is less extensive, but varied enough. Does take some time for the food to arrive. Recommend the patio, when the weather is pleasant. Plenty of parking in the back.
