The Sunken Well is one of our regular favorites here at home. We enjoy how they support local artists and provide a fantastic atmosphere for groups, friends, couples, and families. Their brunch and food selections are always fantastic, and their service has always been superb and personal.

I gave it two stars because the Tomato Basil Soup is still quality (although it could have been a bit warmer) and the appetizer crab cakes were good... More

They are only getting 2 stars because the cheese sticks were good. I ordered a ham and cheese sandwich and the lettuce and tomatoes were rotted and the honey mustard on the sandwich was rancid. The whole sandwich tasted spoiled. My husbands burger was raw even tho he asked for it well done and if u want a bag of... More
