Very good food and drink. Only brew pub in Artesia. Oilfield theme decor. I prefer their "roughneck red" beer although the "crude oil" is pretty good too. Wait staff very friendly and helpful with information about local area.

This place was super! Great home brewed beer, stellar steak, fresh linked bratwurst sausages, and bar h'ordevours. Give it a shot!

I stopped in 4 times in the few weeks I was there. The chips and queso was awesome. I enjoyed the microbrews, Roughneck Red Blonde, and Cali Lager. Great pub atmosphere, but also a dining room for families

I remember coming down to Artesia regularly with friends to eat at The Wellhead when it first opened; we were extremely impressed. The decor was attractive and unique, tying in perfectly with the oilfield theme, and the food was excellent and unlike anything available in...More
