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

Unfriendly to non-locals. The antithesis of southern hospitality. Boycott them!!! Local friends recommended I go to Sunken Well on Monday, "Wing Night". Went there and wings were "sold-out". Went the following week much earlier, and upon inquiry about the wings, I was alerted that the kitchen had to "count them". After 20 minutes of the kitchen counting, I realized it... More

I stopped in today for lunch and had heard positive comments from others about this place. Started with the special Cuban black bean soup. The soup did not have much taste. A little cumin and some chopped fresh cilantro would have a helped. The big disappointment was the roast beef sandwich. The beef was fresh out of the oven. It... More

On a double date, we enjoyed a laid back atmosphere for mid-Sunday morning meal. The service was timely and friendly. Due to the small size of the restaurant, their was a 10-15 wait for a table. Definitely better to go earlier if waiting is a concern. The menu items included staple items and some novelty dishes, all round a good... More

I am a native of Maryland,and spent time crabbing. These are the best crab cakes I have had at a restaurant. This is a must for visitors.

We were able to enjoy this place twice in a weekend. The staff was very nice and the drink prices were good. The have a juke box with free play on Saturday nights. We didn't get the chance to eat here but the food looked and smelled great. If you have I larger party you may want to call ahead.

Stumbled up on this little treasure by accident. The wife and I went back for brunch and discovered bottomless mimosas "Whoa momma" and they were awesome. I remember the food being pretty good... my wife went for cuisine... I went for the bottomless mimosas lol. Cool atmosphere, locals love the place... definitely give them a shout if your in town....
