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!
