Come early as they close after lunch. Good for business lunch. Plenty on the plate. Check to see if they're open ahead of time. Easily overlooked by train passengers.

This has been a favorite with locals for years. It's a fun atmosphere with standard sandwich menu with friendly service.

This is a small deli in town. Very small and quaint. There is actually a Well inside the building, this is an old building and the inside is quaint. Long wooden tables and long wooden seats. Rather dark, BUT the food was excellent deli cuisine. I enjoyed a chicken salad on Pita. They make the chicken salad fresh every day.... More

We asked all of the locals for food choice, this was the collective answer. I wanted to do the BBQ place, but was out voted by the group. The special of the day was a Cuban sandwich, I am not a fan. Beef BBQ won the day! Think small town and you will do fine here.

Excellent ham and Swiss on rye and turkey on wheat for my wife. Nice surroundings and fairly easy to find. Great deli.

A house that is built around a well--truly! The menu is small, but the sandwiches are really good. After seeing their Rueben on Tripadvisor. I had to go and see for myself! It was a treat! My husband had the Triple Treat sandwich, which was tasty. Nothing fancy, and very dim inside...good service and walkable to downtown. Glad we went!

Absolutely a must-see and do in Dillboro, NC. It's a small, REAL well house that's a big hit with locals. Whenever I am visiting my family, Mom and I always make it a point to go to this spot for a great lunch. If you enjoy a fresh-made soup, and a nice variety of sandwiches, you won't regret taking the... More

Located in a dim cellar with a musty odor. Open for dinner on Fridays and Saturdays, otherwise just for lunch. Food (prime rib) was mediocre.

This is the best place to get some really good food. I love their sandwiches and wraps but you can't go wrong no matter what you get!! Too looking down the well is always fun for the kids.
