The food was very good and the service was good. I loved the view and the burger and fries over all I would 100 percent come again.

One of the best ran businesses in Kansas City by far. All the workers there are extremely friendly. As soon as you walk through the door the aroma of mouth watering delicious food surrounds you

Great place for a quick stop. The outdoor roof is beautiful and the service is great. As well as the food.

I walked in and was greeted nicely by the hostess. She took my up to the amazing open rooftop that they have above. I continued to go downstairs and have one of the best brunches I have ever had. This has become one of my...go to brunch places when I come into town on the holidays.More

First time and probably my last time here. Upon entering I was scolded by the host for lowering my mask to speak. The first server was very slow and inattentive. After a long disappearance a second server stepped in and he did a fine job....He could not save it though. Food was average. Draft beers were not very cold. Hot patio with no air movement and no music. Bathrooms not clean. Cannot recommend.More

Stopped in for dessert and drinks. One dessert selection? Okay, it was palatable. Beer selection? Meh. Service? Slow. Then, my wife decided upon the daily special 1/2 off whiskey/scotch. We ordered a Manhattan, straight-up. She got a lukewarm beverage all but devoid of whiskey with...a lemon twist hiding at the very bottom. When we complained to the waitress, she quickly and aggressively said we shouldn't have drunk so much of it (there was 2/3rds of the amount still in the glass after we'd both had our tastes). A bartender who cannot make one of America's simplest and most beloved cocktails (it wasn't busy, at the time, either) and a waitress who takes 10 minute breaks before appearing on the patio and then insults you and walks off. Question: how does a place like this remain in business?More

Love the open rooftop at the well. They have a grass game area, fire pits and TVs. Went here for my birthday. Waldo pizza and Tanners are next door.

Chicken tenders were awesome. Fries were old and cold. Should have checked the fries. Not happy about the fries.

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...good. They have some awesome mac n cheese.More
