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

I ate here with family while in GR for business. The food is excellent! I had the fish tacos, and others with me had the brisket sandwich and the mac and cheese. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The wait staff is friendly and helpful. There is an excellent selection of craft beer as well. Parking is limited but available.... More

First time I went there it was amazing. Second time the food was a little greasy. Third time more grease. The last time I went there was so much grease that the bottom of the plate was covered with it. I had the cuban and my son had the brisket. Told the server about this, all she said was "oh"....

I found this place on Trip Advisor! We were looking for something healthy with interesting twists on food pairings. The Green Well is a great spot for really good food and lots of drink choices. They have a large craft beer selection and many mixed drinks. I had the flank steak and it was cooked perfectly. The sides of horseradish,... More
