“Our wedding celebration dinner at The Wishing Well could not have more perfect.  The food was amazing and the entire staff could not have been more personable, professional, and helpful throughout the evening.  The setting is ideal for a small to midsize wedding party.  The low lit, rustic atmosphere was the perfect backdrop for a quaint, cozy evening with friends and family.  We would recommend The Wishing Well to anyone that wants great food, a great atmosphere, and a great staff for their special celebration.”
