I have always enjoyed my experiences at the Greenwell! Their service is great, the variety of meals are equally great, and the pricing is not bad. I personally love to sit on their patio in the summer and enjoy their fish tacos. They have a decent wine selection, too! For those of us with dietary... read more

Any trip to Grand Rapids MUST include a meal at the Green Well. For us, it is typically brunch or lunch and we have never been disappointed. 20 draught beer selections -- almost exclusively craft beers with a focus on Michigan breweries -- that rotate regularly. Decent wine list and interesting handmade cocktails as well. On the lunch menu, the... More

We enjoyed a wonderful meal at the Green Well with our children and their daughter. The Green Well never disappoints. I enjoyed their homemade Bloody Mary. It was practically a meal in itself. We also enjoyed the Charred onion goat cheese skillet, another appetizer and then the costa rican bean salad with chicken as well as the Green Well Salad.... More

Husband got chicken and waffles and I got the BBQ pork and polenta. We were seated by the door so froze the whole time. I was expecting a great meal from the reviews. Neither of us liked the meals. Husbands was soggy chicken on a soggy waffle with not enough syrup to mask the taste. Polenta and BBQ was not... More

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.
