It's a cozy spot, though not cramped. The food was very good and not the typical greasy/salty stuff that I usually like. I had a salad and a lamb-curry something or other that was great on bread. The wait staff was attentive and efficient, even when the place got busy.

They always have a good, but eclectic menu at the Greenwell. Their soups, sandwiches, and salads are wonderful.

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
