This is a fantastic spot. There are rooftop and patio seating available. It makes a great spring or summer spot to grab a bite and a drink. Had lunch and the service was excellent. The prices are fair to the area. The food is pretty...More

Out on a Wednesday night with a group that looks for someplace different every week. None of the group had eaten here (drinks, yes, food no). Each one of us had a different dish and every one was happy! Fish and chip, ahi tuna, club...More

I’ve driven by this place many times and thought it would be really nice to have dinner in the plastic greenhouse on the roof with the torches outside. When we finally got there, I discovered that the upstairs area is basically just another sports bar....More

Dropped in for impromptu dinner. Sat inside. Typical bar food choices. Nachos were large plate and good. Service good. Noisy but more energetic than bothersome. Lots of tvs to watch the game. I would like to go back for dinner on the roof.

My friends and I went for trivia which is hosted by a company called geeks who drink (would recommend the trivia!!!). The well is a great after work spot as the happy hour deals are good.

Stopped in for a quick dinner on a Thursday night. The sandwiches were very tasty! They also have a super happy hour, including 1/2 price glasses of wine, until 6pm. Nice rooftop seating but we sat indoors on a chilly night. I'll return!

My server was Haley and she did a fine job. I had the Carribean [sic] Jerk Sandwich and it was just okay. There was nothing particularly good about it and nothing particularly bad. It was average in every sense of the word.

The Well has crappy parking, mediocre service, UNCOMFORTABLE deck seating, and OK food. Add it all up and you're left wondering what made you deal with the hassle of parking, the slow and unenthusiastic service and ok food. Must be the deck, which would be...More
