The Well is a unique, multi-level restaurant with two outdoor areas...a lower level patio and a rooftop deck. The second establishment of the Lewellen brothers, (Lew's Grill & Bar is down the street) it is easy to tell that a lot of thought went into making it a place that offers something for everyone. The slightly upscale feel combined with the casual atmosphere of a neighborhood bar draws a mixed crowd of all ages, from families and singles to business people and locals. Comfortable and friendly, it's great for all types of gatherings. The chef-prepared menu includes fresh fish, steaks, pastas, burgers with hand-cut fries and much more. “We choose only the freshest ingredients for our dishes, and we buy locally whenever possible,” said owner Chris Lewellen. Late night includes a variety of munchies, hand-made soups and sandwiches. Sunday brunch features a six-station buffet with omelet and Belgium Waffle station and KC's largest Bloody Mary Bar.

The drinks were excellent. Atmosphere was fun and our first server was terrific. Second server for dinner was not around much. Food was good but not outstanding.

My husband and I celebrated his birthday with our daughter and her husband during KC restaurant week. The selections were good for the occasion. They had prime rib on the restaurant week menu (this is currently not on their regular menu) and both my husband and I ordered that. The meat was cooked perfectly to our order and was HUGE. We enjoyed the leftovers for 4 days afterwards! It wasn't crowded and was very easy to get to. Plenty of parking. I will eat there again for sure!

We tried it out for restaurant week. We were very pleased with the food. The scallops were amazing. Dessert was amazing Took about 13 minutes for a waitress to come over but they were extremely busy. Was more of a bar atmosphere than I was expecting but would absolutely eat there again.

Went for Sunday brunch and food was good. Price point is decent. Bartender was great, thought he over charged us and realized after leaving he didn't 🙁.. feel bad for that. Overall good

The food and service were really good. Lots of variety. I was disappointed in the seating. The standard seating tables were too large. No tables for a smaller group except high tables and older people can’t use those tables.

waited 30 min for waitress, hostess seemed upset with our party of 8, like not expecting us. Requested standard table, seated at high top. Had party of 10, said 8 the max, then saw a bachelorette party of 15????, 2 hrs to dine, late for Brew at the Zoo, birthday dinner, was never acknowledged, put us close to the bar, people standing at bar loud, rude, bumping us. Noise level was NOT energetic, it was obnoxious. Third an last time to dine at The Well.

We had out-of-town guests and needed a place where we wouldn't have too long a wait for dinner as we all needed to be elsewhere later that evening. Oddly, the hostess couldn't seem to locate our reservation though I had received confirmation from Open Table. They were able to quickly clear a booth for our party though it was cramped for a party of five.

The food at the Well is your typical bar fare. The selection is varied so one can find something to please their palate. I had the fried fish tacos and enjoyed them. It is a neighborhood gem.
