The Green Well is a quaint little restaurant with a hip vibe and inviting atmosphere. Servers and friendly and very knowledgable about menu items and wine selections. The menu is somewhat limited but offers several very interesting choices. We ordered the breads and spreads appetizer which had a selection of three unique and tasty spreads with a variety of breads,... 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

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Michigan. I've since moved away from the west Michigan area, so I haven' been back in awhile. The food is amazing, and the drinks great too! If one of the specials sounds appetizing, go ahead and get it. They are usually very creative, and a good deviation from the standard menu. I... More

I went here with my sister who can be a picky vegetarian but she was well pleased with the options for her, she got an awesome looking burrito and even i wanted a bite. We went on a Tuesday night and it was pretty busy as they were out of some of their specials but they still had a lot... More

I went with a group and we all shared several dishes: bbq pork & polenta, Korean beef and noodles, sweet corn spaetzle, and chicken & waffles. Everything was delicious, with depths of flavors. My favorite of the day was the bbq pork and it wasn't even 'my' dish. Portions were generous and the service was very friendly. Atmosphere was great... More

Our first visit to this hidden gem did not disappoint us! In fact, we are already planning to go back. We visited on a Sunday afternoon, ate on the patio, and ordered from the lunch menu. My husband tried the pork tacos and I had the Green Well salad. Both were delicious and good portion size. They also have a... More

This place is a gem. It is always good, and always a little different. There is a great selection offered of fresh, creatively prepared dishes. The wait staff is always accommodating and informed. Portions are generous and the loose leaf teas are amazing. There is a great selection of beer, wine, and cocktails as well.

Food was delicious and such an interesting variety. Portion sizes were good. Price was a little on the high end, but Eastown restaurants all seem to be pricier than what you would pay at an average chain, and this is not an average chain. Service was great and the staff was on top of everything, refilling drinks, water, making sure... More

There's something to please everyone on the Green Well menu. Service is great, food is even better. Parking and an always-crowded seating area can make for a bit of a wait, but it's worth it!

I had my favorite meal in Grand Rapids here! The turkey sandwich was so unique and delicious that I want to go back just for it!! The truffle fries were also very good. I loved this place.
