ROCKFORD, Mich. – A Rockford restaurant is closed today, but will reopen Tuesday under a different name.

The Green Well in Rockford will open tomorrow as the Rockford Riverside Grille, according to a post on the restaurant’s Facebook page.

The Essence Restaurant Group, which operates the restaurant, says the newly named restaurant will be more family-friendly, with a kids’ menu and more American-inspired dishes like nachos, bacon-wrapped meatloaf, sandwiches and more.  There will also be live music on the patio.

Gift cards to Green Well and other Essence Restaurant Group restaurants will still be accepted.
