Reviewed December 2, 2013

This spot on East main Street in orange has a great menu and many nights they get entertainment from either Charlottesville or Richmond. A place to stop.

“Cold food, poor service”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

The Light Well offered what they called homemade pasta (and it may well have been) but it was not warm when it arrived at our table. It was mid-week and not a busy evening but our waitress was rather indifferent to serving us; she seemed more interested in busing tables. Two pasta dishes, two sodas and some bread cost us $47--not a great deal of money but way over-priced for what we got.

“Lukewarm”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

It's an inviting, cozy space, but the Croque Monsieur special I ordered for brunch was luke warm. It looked like a tried and true locals spot, so I'd give it another try but stick to items on the standard menu.

“Pub Ambiance”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Pub ambiance during the lunch hour. Nice selection of beers. We tried the locally raised, grass-fed beef with Arugula, Tomato, and Herbed Mayo on a Challah bun. Great hamburger!

“Delicious!!!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

We ate breakfast at the Light Well. The quiche was light and airy and the breakfast burrito was incredible. The coffee was superb and the music playing in the background was relaxing. Very enjoyable first impression!!!
