A note to visitors, if you are visiting the Fredericksburg battlefield the Sunken Well is two blocks from the Richard Rowland Kirkland (Angel of Fredericksburg) memorial. I recommend you stop for lunch, dinner or at least a beverage.
The Sunken Well is casual. The food is consistent and the tap beer selection provides plenty of options. The menu is more on a line with a deli, but offers entrées and specials for dinner. The menu is available on line. Between all of us we have sampled a majority of the menu, and we all concur that everything was very good. Although, the onion rings we had last Saturday (8.6.11) not so much. They were lightly breaded, almost tempura, but they were very, very bland. The only other comment would be that sometimes the staff is a bit slow/inattentive at times but the place is small so if you need to get their attention it is not difficult.
The Well does close a 9:00 p.m. so plan accordingly.
