Variety and a great chef!

It appears that the locals frequent this eatery. Great options for sandwiches or full entrees. We both loved our meal, all crab crabcake for me and shrimp dish for my husband. Many healthy options too with local produce and fish.

Passing through town in early evening, we stopped here for dinner on what turned out to be "Burger Night" ($5-$6 special prices) and the place was really busy. Turns out there were staff no-shows and our wait was pretty long. That said, our server was friendly and accomodating, keeping us informed of progress and who served us amazing burgers (drinks...

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.

We have been enjoying the food at Sunken Well for years, since it first opened. Today our meal was a disappointment, especially knowing the quality that it has been in the past. 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
