Located in an old grocery store, Sunken Well Tavern has an extensive menu of fresh food and drinks. We went for brunch and were blown away by the bloody mary's, eggs over chesapeake, the corned beef and the burger. Enjoy!

Stopped in for a late lunch just missing what appears to be a nice brunch menus. Owner and staff were very personable and friendly. The jerk chicken sandwich was excellent. Plan to head back with my wife for brunch soon!

This is a nice brunch spot in Fredericksburg. The service is good and the specials that they have on weekends are always rotating with a new creation from the cooks. Always makes it a little more exciting to see what you can try when you walk in. Pancakes are absolutely huge and delicious! Looking for brunch? Stop on by here... More

We live so close to this quaint place, that we walk there often for its good food and convenience. We love the food, and the service is good. Sometimes it can be a bit slow, and they sometimes run out of food, but they really try hard to make the best of it. Their onion rings are the best on... More

A bunch of us had lunch here on a Saturday. They were able to seat all 12 of us together. Several of us ordered the crab cakes which were salty but good. My husband ordered the french toast breakfast and he said the french toast was rather limp. My son had the bacon cheddar burger and loved that. The funny... More

Unfriendly to non-locals. The antithesis of southern hospitality. Boycott them!!! Local friends recommended I go to Sunken Well on Monday, "Wing Night". Went there and wings were "sold-out". Went the following week much earlier, and upon inquiry about the wings, I was alerted that the kitchen had to "count them". After 20 minutes of the kitchen counting, I realized it... More

I stopped in today for lunch and had heard positive comments from others about this place. Started with the special Cuban black bean soup. The soup did not have much taste. A little cumin and some chopped fresh cilantro would have a helped. The big disappointment was the roast beef sandwich. The beef was fresh out of the oven. It... More

On a double date, we enjoyed a laid back atmosphere for mid-Sunday morning meal. The service was timely and friendly. Due to the small size of the restaurant, their was a 10-15 wait for a table. Definitely better to go earlier if waiting is a concern. The menu items included staple items and some novelty dishes, all round a good... More
