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

We enjoy doing a late lunch or early dinner at Green Well. We beat the crowd and still receive wonderful service and outstanding food. We enjoy the Cuban Bean Salad and the Smoked Turkey Sandwich. These two items rock and are a regular choice. The Starboard Stout is a great dark beer and not real heavy. Just a tad heavier... More

My husband and I loved the Green Well! It was a beautiful day, so we ate outside - nice patio space. Great variety on the menu and obviously a great beer selection. Lots of vegetarian options for me that weren't the typical Portobello mushroom. Fries were a little under, but still way above average. The neighborhood was super charming -... More

Great atmosphere, enjoyable menu. Knowledgeable service with daily selections offered on top of regular menu. Good location, parking isn't too difficult. Outdoor seating in the summer. Menu offers different sized portion plates which is also nice so you can order based on your appetite.

We tried to visit this restaurant on a late Friday night and were facing a 2 hour wait so we tried again on Saturday around 5 with much more success. We started out with the Bread & Spreads appetizer which features breads from the Field & Fire Bakery & Green Well flatbreads with 3 different spreads. This evening the breads... More

We enjoyed dining out for Boss's day and the Green well didn't disappoint. We enjoyed a lovely spot, tucked in a corner which accommodated all of us. Andrea, our server was friendly and attentive. We had an assortment of fare. My husband and I each enjoyed the beef stew in a cup and then split the Turkey Sandwich all natural... More

First time dining in Grand Rapids while visiting my daughter for Art Prize. While many restaurants in the area boast of using locally sourced ingredients, the Green Well was hands down the most creative and flavorful among the three other places where we ate. I had the chicken confit with grilled asparagus on top of a potato latke with a... More

My last night in GR and my first visit. Wasn't spectacular foodwise until I visited The Green Well. Went there based on reviews I had read and their menu. It was delicious. We waited quite a while for a table but it was Saturday night and Art Prize so not a shocker. Once we were seated, our server came over.... More
