“Nice Main Street Pub”
Reviewed January 11, 2012

My wife and I visited the Light Well for lunch and after dinner drinks. It has a nice, small town feel with a pleasant atmosphere. However, the lunch service is not as attentive as dinner. The bartender had to alert the wait staff to our presence, and we had to remind our waitress to fill our drinks. Otherwise, the staff is friendly and accommodating. We'll be back on our next visit to Orange.

“Great for a quick drink but slow service and mediocre food need improvement.”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

I have been very frustrated and disappointed by "The Light Well". They have done a great job with decor, have one of the most impressive bar counters I have seen, friendly owners yet the service and food are to say nicely not so good. I had a burger that was overdone and it took so long that I wondered if they had to butcher a cow while we were waiting. I Still hope that they will get better, because there are so many better restaurant choices in Orange and it would be a shame to see them fail.

“Little cafe type.”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

The Light Well had decent food. We enjoyed the ambiance. The only problem was our food selection. If we had gone with a cheeseburger, we are sure the final result would have been more satisfying.
