Reviews for The Well House

The Southern hospitality here is the best I’ve ever experienced in the American Southeast! They were extra attentive to us because we were the only guests at 4pm. The owner/manager brought us complimentary chocolates and coffee while we waited for our order, and I couldn’t refuse the kind offering despite knowing the caffeine would keep me up all night. The loaded baked potato stew and Reuben sandwich were so tasty and filling! This restaurant and the entire town of full review

The staff is accommodating and kind, our toddler was hungry and they offered crackers, and even some bubbles while they prepared our meals. The food is so good. We had the chicken salad, of course. You can get it on a pita or any style bread (rye, wheat, white). The location is very historic so worth a visit if you travel. If you don’t know, it’s named “The Well House” because of the well found inside. It was established in the 1800s. Thanks, Well House.

This is mostly below the main building so it feels underground, more like a springhouse than well house! It reminds me a bit of Chapel Hill's old Rathskeller in that feel. The service was fast, friendly and efficient. Our group of three had a veggie salad, a chef salad, and a sandwich. All were excellent, including salad dressings.
