Stopped in for lunch after hearing positive reviews about this place. Everything we were told was true...good food and good service. Meal portions (lunch) were perfect and tasted great. Our waitress was very good with answering our questions and making sure our experience was satisfactory. We will recommend to friends!

Great experience at this restaurant. Food was flavorful and creative. There is also a great wine and beer selection too! Definitely one of my new favorite restaurants here in West Michigan.

This was our first time at this restaurant and it was outstanding. My wife ordered the Sag Spatzel and I had the Korean braised beef. Both dishes were really good and highly recommended. There were so many flavors going on it is hard to describe. The restaurant is small and it can get noisy but the food was so good... More

I've been to The Green Well many times. Often I've enjoyed my meal but occasionally I've been disappointed and left feeling I should have eaten elsewhere. Recently, maybe the last three times I've eaten there, I have felt that way. Too much heavy sauce. Too much trying to be creative at the expense of honest good food. I'm sure I... More

We had two outstanding draft beers. Our waiter was excellent. Had to sit in the bar due to crowd of mostly young folks. Dinners generous and tasty. Next time I would get a tweener size and cut the bill a little. We had salmon jambalaya and fish tacos. There was a draft by the bar though.

The Green Well is consistently a wonderful meal. They have outstanding service, a great vibe and their food is amazing. Lunch favorites are the Brazilian Black bean stew or for a lighter fare the Harvest Salad. For dinner the Pad Thai is amazing... Many delicious vegetarian choices for my daughter. Having great spot to sit outdoors when the weather permits... More

Lunching with friends and ordered the "Brazilian black beans stew" (uploaded photo) Note: the group was comprised of 5 Brazilians. The dish does not taste like Brazilian food at all. Extremely spicy for Brazilian standards, had cream cheese which also is not common in Brazilian culinary. The dish even had Jalapeño peppers, which are not even readily available in Brazil.... More

The service here was superb. Such a kind and interested waitress and all the staff we encountered were just wonderful and upbeat. The food was tremendous. Loved the Brazilian Black Bean Stew and others in our party really loved the Pad Thai. Also the Michigan Harvest salad was extraordinary. The difficult part the the tremendous din of the room. It...

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
