Used to love The Green Well and could always count on it to be delicious, unique and dependable. However, my 3rd visit in 6 months let me down for the 3rd time. Giving it a poor rating because it was not even average this last visit, May 25th. We ordered 2 standby's that we have enjoyed for years, the fish... More

Wonderful visit. The food was fresh and very, very good. My friend ordered a wine flight to sample 3 wines. The pools were very, very generous. The service was fabulous.

We stumbled upon Green Well after starting out at Brewery Vivant (across the street). We sat at BV for nearly 20 minutes and a waiter never came to our table, so we left and headed across the street. I'm SO glad we did. The menu is fantastic. So many more appealing options and they still have great beer, wine and... More

First time visit. Was impressed with the beer selection. As for the food, all 5 of us ordered something different and all were very pleased. The service was excellent. Ryan the bar tender/manager came over and made us feel welcome and made sure we were taken care of.

One of the consistently good staples of the trendy Eastown area. Always great food, and a nice outdoor seating option weather permitting. Occasionally, there are free concerts going on next door in the park-like area. Menu is very unique and everything is tasty.

Yummy for the roasted brussel sprouts! Ditto on the brisket sandwich with pimento cheese. Overall, wait staff appears to enjoy being here. Sarah, our waitress provided good detail descriptions on menu items. Casual dress, both indoor and outdoor seating. Nice garden area next door provides viewing pleasure while outside. Free off-street parking lot behind building. Come during happy hour, partake... More

One of the worst sandwiches I've had...ever. I went to a little gastro pub in Chicago and was quite impressed. So when I dined at the Green Well my expectations may have been a little high. That being said, I wouldn't wish the meal I had on my enemies. And the high price for that level of rubbish made it... More

No wonder this is so highly rated. It was a perfect night. From the greeting by the hostess at the door to our desserts at the end of the evening. We had the spring risotto and the BBQ pork with polenta and both were to die for. The cocktails were great as was the dessert. I might have to return... More
