Everything is great here. A bit expensive but it’s a foodie joint. Chicken and waffles are amazing. Service is great. Can get rather busy.

During Covid quarantining, I was getting a daily menu for take-out emailed. I was so intrigued by the PBJ Duck Sandwich that after a month and sick of cooking, I cracked. Friday afternoon, my husband on his way home from downtown area, I ordered online....Ordered at noon and order was ready by 2:24. My husband said that pick up was a breeze. The food also made a 20 minute drive in great shape. Duck sandwich was awesome. Pork meatballs just great. My son loved his Poutine. Ribs, very very moist and tasty. Definitely a splurge price-wise but worth it!!More

I have been coming to the Green Well since 2011. I've been gluten free for over a decade, and have struggled with finding palatable food in restaurants. No such issues here. From the first meal I had here, I have been astounded at the quality...of their offerings - the richness and depth of flavor. I have never eaten a bad dish. Dishes that are gluten-free do not feel like an afterthought to pay lip service to those with dietary concerns. Portions are generous. I have been to many restaurants across the country, and yet I come to this unpretentious restaurant in Grand Rapids, and this blows the others out of the water. On top of that, the service is fantastic - so accommodating and unbelievably kind, even when inundated with requests.More

Had an amazing dinner at Green Well, but what made the food and the whole visit 5 stars was the level of service, from hostess, to waitress, to manager. Every single staff person went the extra mile to make our experience amazing and memorable. Can...not recommend this restaurant any higher...go here!More

It’s one thing to have the wait staff understand exactly how you’d like you meat cooked, but it’s another to get the chef to do the same. Max, our waiter, understood exactly how I wanted my burger cooked and was able to convey it to...the chef, who then prepared the tastiest burger for my enjoyment. My wife’s meat was just as she’d hoped for as well. This was our first time there, but won’t be our last! By the way, ask for a cup of cinnamon with their Sweet Potato Ice Cream when you order desert. It’s great!More

Living within walking distance of the museum is so convenient to stop by several times throughout the year. I love just walking around and checking out all of the historical exhibits that have a permanent home there. I always feel like I learn something new...each time! I love the enthusiastic host employees of various exhibits (the fire truck and station...the nicest man!) They have so much information to share and love what they do... sharing interesting facts with passion! This visit we came for the historical toy exhibit, it was so much fun to see all the toys we grew up playing with! A great way to spend the day! Highly recommended!More
