“Great unique dishes”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

We live in GR so we have been to the Green Well several times. We have NEVER had a bad or boring meal. They have had a new menu every time we go in, but usually have a few yummy favorites. They strive for the farm-to-table type menu, so most of the food & beverages are local or MI harvested. They even list which farms they use. Some of our favorites have been their potstickers, duck, brisket, & even gourmet loaded mac & cheese. This restaurant is so comfortable you could have a family dinner, just friends, or even a romantic dinner for two. In the summer you can also enjoy outside dining.

“Delicious food and cheap PBR”
Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Food was delicious, beyond our expectations. Highly recommend the Michigan Turkey sandwich and the Harvest Salad. Yum! Seating outside is very nice really beautiful garden next door. Service could have been a bit more attentive but maybe the server was just having a day.... Will visit again when we come back to Grand Rapids. Interesting corridor with other restaurants and shops nearby.

“East Grand Rapids Gem”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

The food and atmosphere at The Green Well was excellent. This was our family's first time to this lovely spot, but it won't be our last. The tomato basil soup was very flavorful. My husband had the black bean stew and he raved about the taste. My daughter and I split the cheese platter and we really enjoyed the cheese selections. Our son and daughter-in-law had been to the restaurant before. Our son again went for the fish tacos and he said they were some of the best! Wish we had saved room for dessert. Maybe on our next visit.

“Fun Service!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

The food is always awesome and they have great variety! The pork sandwich is out of sight. I also really love the service at the bar. The servers and bartenders are very accommodating and if there is something that you want that you don't see on the menu, they will make it! Definitely a go-to for a consistently great meal!

“Great beer selection”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Went to The Green Well on business and didn't get any food since we had just had lunch, but I did have a few beers that were awesome. The first one was actually a cider called Totally Roasted and it had flavors of vanilla bean in it and it was awesome. The other one I really liked was called Sammy Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout....TO DIE FOR! Go to this gastropub if you're in the area! The bartenders know their beers and are very friendly!
