My friend and I both got the fish tacos. They were very good and the chips and salsa that came with it were also very good. I liked that they used locally grown ingredients and had many healthier options on the menu. For a Saturday night it wasn't too busy which was nice that we had no wait.

The Green Well calls itself a Gastro Pub. The dishes here are unique and delicious. I enjoyed the BBQ pulled pork and polenta. The BBQ and polenta was so good, I'll have a difficult time trying something different the next time I visit. My husband had the Cuban with truffle fries. The Cuban was comparable to other local eateries, but... More

We started off by sharing the Breads & Spread appetizer. I think the spreads vary so ask the server what the day's options are. The menu is culturally diverse so it makes it difficult to decide. I ordered the chicken chopped salad which seem to have more of the fixings than salad and I enjoyed it. If you like mac... More

They have some different and unique dishes here and everything we have had was excellent. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. It can be on the loud side if the place is full.

I need to first say parking is a pain here. There is a lot in back but it was packed during my visit. The place was very busy and was on the loud side. Varied menu and I got the burger. Very good. A little on the pricey side. I had an excellent waiter. I knocked the atmosphere down to... More

My 16 year old son and I had a relaxed and delicious dinner. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The food was scrumptious, my son had the grilled cheese and I had the Asian noodles. The patio was full so we sat inside which turned out to be fine as there was a concert next door that was pretty... More
