Light Well has the possibility of becoming something extraordinaire, especially considering there's not much for competition in the town of Orange. None of their food really stands out as something special. I've never thought to myself.. "Gee, I could really go for one of those _____'s from Light Well." Even though they are in the PERFECT position to do that.... More

The service was amazing. Our server (I wish I could remember her name) was knowledgeable, made some great recommendations and was flexible. The atmosphere was comfortable and homey. You could tell it was a local gathering place, but it wasn't rowdy or annoying in any way. The food was absolutely delicious. I got the shrimp and grits and the butternut... More

Thank you so much for your positive and supportive review!! I remember you guys very well! It was you, your mother, and your daughter I believe. I was filling in on the floor because we were short staffed so I was your server! I am so happy that you enjoyed everything and I want to thank you for your feedback!... More

Stopped by after a festival at Montpelier on a recent Saturday. Our foursome had a delicious brunch with eggs and "the best grits ever," a hamburger of grass fed beef, a delicious Cuban sandwich, and the quiche special of the day with a cup of soup and a salad. The service was excellent and pleasant. After lunch we strolled through... More

The best way to describe this is a bistro. The wait staff is friendly. The food is good. The prices are fair. There is a wide range of beer choices. It has live music on some nights. Orange VA is a quaint town with four pretty good restaurants. The Light Well is not as fancy as the Inn but it... More

On a very hot, humid Virginia afternoon, in July, I headed to Orange, Va., to meet up w/a very dear old friend, w/a plan, to visit one of our fav. little book shops,The Friends of the Library Book Shop, 120 Chapman Street, Orange. Afterwards, we slowly made our way to the Light Well Restaurant on Main Street. In the past,... More

Having grown up in this area, I can safely say that this is one of the best spots to eat in all of Orange. We stopped for Sunday brunch and arrived exactly at 11am when they open. Within 20 minutes the place was full and with good reason. Great food, great service, great atmosphere. MDP, an eggs Benedict junkie, gave... More

My parents suggested this place for us to go eat and watch the World Cup. I've been living in Dallas for 7 years so I haven't had a chance to go until now. I came to this building every day as a kid, back when it was Rickett's. I'm glad to say it is now a great place to go... More
