My wife and I had an enjoyable Valentine's Day lunch at the Sunken Well Tavern. We were seated immediately and promptly served by friendly staff. My wife had a crab cake sandwich with a side salad - the sandwich was of a good size and tasty; the salad fresh. I had a grilled chicken Caesar salad and a cup of... More

My husband and I went for Sunday brunch and were not dissapointed. I had Jersey eggs Benedict, which was perfectly prepared. Husband had eggs, bacon and the largest pancake we've ever seen. You can tell this is very much a local spot, but as non-locals we still had a great meal and felt very welcome. I wouldn't say you have... More

This is your quintessential neighborhood hangout which happens to have good eats. I came here with my son at his recommendation for a quick lunch and I was not disappointed. Had the Dirty burger (burger with chili and cheese) and my son had a grill cheese and cup of crab bisque. Great grub! Our waitress Jessica was a delight and... More

So we decided to try this place after lots of great reviews... the appetizer was great, my quesadilla was also good. The other person in my party had a horrible experience. The crab cake was cold on the middle and the hand cut fried were total grease.; eating undercooked seafood is not good! When the server came to bring the... More

Located in an old grocery store, Sunken Well Tavern has an extensive menu of fresh food and drinks. We went for brunch and were blown away by the bloody mary's, eggs over chesapeake, the corned beef and the burger. Enjoy!

Stopped in for a late lunch just missing what appears to be a nice brunch menus. Owner and staff were very personable and friendly. The jerk chicken sandwich was excellent. Plan to head back with my wife for brunch soon!

This is a nice brunch spot in Fredericksburg. The service is good and the specials that they have on weekends are always rotating with a new creation from the cooks. Always makes it a little more exciting to see what you can try when you walk in. Pancakes are absolutely huge and delicious! Looking for brunch? Stop on by here... More

We live so close to this quaint place, that we walk there often for its good food and convenience. We love the food, and the service is good. Sometimes it can be a bit slow, and they sometimes run out of food, but they really try hard to make the best of it. Their onion rings are the best on... More

A bunch of us had lunch here on a Saturday. They were able to seat all 12 of us together. Several of us ordered the crab cakes which were salty but good. My husband ordered the french toast breakfast and he said the french toast was rather limp. My son had the bacon cheddar burger and loved that. The funny... More
