Outstanding farm to fork eatery! Service is excellent and the dishes are creature and fresh. Lots of organic ingredients with produce used, grown in a local garden across the street! How cool is that?!

Whenever I have out of town guests, I like to bring them here. Their inspired and creative menu really highlight the abundance of locally sourced ingredients. My favorite is the burrito with pulled pork because of all the seasonal veggies in it. It's a very vegetarian-friendly restaurant (probably vegan-friendly?). Decent beer, wine and cocktail menu.

I prefer it for dinner, not so much for lunch. I don't know why but it lacks atmosphere in daylight. The drinks are good and so are their mac and cheese. We love the salads and the service is good.

I had Potato & Chive Soup with a Michigan Salad and my husband had a Burger with Truffle Fries. Service was great and the food was fresh and tasty! Atmosphere is trendy with a cozy feel. A little pricey ($50 with tip) "for us" to eat here often but definitely a fun place to visit while passing thru...it did look... More

Second time at the Green Well. The food here is excellent. Service was a little lacking. We probably sat for at least 5-7 minutes before having to ask for some service to get a drink order. We both ordered Diet Cokes and were informed that they only have Brix sodas. They are Michigan made and were good but found the... More

I love this place. I have been there twice while in Grand Rapids with friends and both times have been very impressed. This last time, my vegan niece was also with me and she loved her meal and was very thankful for their array of choices. Always great service, too.

My family and I went to Green Well for dinner and were blown away. On top of the great beer selection, the menu was incredibly diverse. Their mac & cheese is probably most well-known dish, and for good reason - it's amazing! The chicken and waffles with sweet potato mash was fantastic! And if you are in the mood for... More

The Green Well was the first gastro pub I visited several years ago. I had never heard of such a thing, but now they're a dime a dozen. The Green Well, however, stands out to me not only because it was the "original" from my perspective, but because it has continued to be fun.

The Green well used to be my favorite restaurant when it first opened. The food is consistently good, but the menu hasn't changed much over the past few years.

My husband and I stopped here for lunch while in the area. The food was outstanding. The tomato basil soup was delicious although a cracker or roll would have been better. My husband had the grilled ham and cheese sandwich which was also excellent. The one piece of our visit that prevents my giving them a 4 instead of a... More
