Good food and nice people

I spend a month in Ireland each summer for family reasons, so I feel qualified to speak intelligently about Irish pubs... Normally, pubs outside Ireland billing themselves as "Irish" are nondescript bars with Guinness on tap - and normally improperly poured - and the occasion Irish football or rugby jersey hanging from the wall. St. James Well was recommended by... More

These guys are constantly evolving and have hit it on the mark. Gluten free stuff to eat too! They have nice cool air conditioning and live music sometimes too. The owner is a great guy too! He bought me a great birthday drink!

I often go to 'The Well' to meet friends for various types of get-togethers and know it is a regular hangout for some other friends. It is designed as a typical Irish pub and offers good value. I am pleased to see that they are offering a better selection of local craft beers.

Our niece works around the corner and suggested the pub when we suggested lunch. Very wholesome home cooking. Jen our niece went with a burger, I had an elk steak and my hubby had a steak all were cooked just as we liked them. The beer was good too. Great friendly staff.

A cozy little irish pub that serves above average pub food! Is it a bit inconsistent sometimes? Perhaps. But I've never had to send anything back. They support local craft breweries and are always welcoming. I've never had to wait for a table and I pop by fairly often!

We went there for dinner tonight and expected to wait. Getting a table right away on a Friday night is not normally a good sign and it was not tonght. My wife sent her food back twice as it was not edible and i sent my fries back because they were cold. They need to shut the place down and... More

If you want good English or Irish style pub food you cant do better than here. Often a very busy place and so sometimes hard to have a conversation. Especially if there is a game on or live music. Often had half price appy's which are a meal in themselves. Great spot especially for the young.

We love to walk down to this local pub for dinner and drinks. Excellent pub grub here! The atmosphere is old world, but you can still watch the game and enjoy live music on Friday and Saturday nights.
