Always good. Always busy. Wish it were larger. Definitely need a reservation. Outdoor setting is a backup for the main dining room.

Excellent food. Waitress forgot to bring our salads and then only offered us only one complimentary dessert. She served our drinks after we were served the appetizer. Excellent food.

My husband and I were visiting family in Hendersonville, NC. While there we enjoy scoping out other amazing places like Tryon and Saluda. This time we went to Brevard. What a lovely and lively town: the shopping was great and we had lunch in the Square Root restaurant. I had 2 apps; fried green tomatoes (hard to find in the... More

This was a great lunch spot! Very popular, so be sure to make a reservation to ensure quick seating. We did not have a reservation, but were still able to take a seat at the bar. Wonderful service and great atmosphere. And the food was excellent!

We were seated at our favorite table, and waited on by Taylor. The evening was perfect. Each course was timed so that we never felt rushed or forgotten and the food was delicious.

Sonya was our server and did a great job. Food also was prepared perfectly. The London Broil is my favorite. I get it without onions. The daily specials can often be unique and we simply have not had a bad meal here. The wood in the bar is incredible. It is an old tree that fell in town that was... More

We walked from our hotel, the Sunset Motel to Square Root. The atmosphere was great, the food and drink was so good! Chicken Marsala was the best!

Our family of four have been here many times, and today I suggested it for a moms' day out. Everyone was super-happy with their menu selections, and the staff and decor complement a delicious meal. Do not miss the sweet potato chips and zucchini fries!

Scallop Saltimbocca presented great flavors but I felt short-changed on the scallop portion. For the price there needs to be a minimum of 4 scallops on the platter! Kelly was a great waitress!

Located in a beautifully restored historic building...down a quiet alley in the heart of Downtown Brevard, The Square Root Restaurant is as well known for its architectural and artistic decor as it is for its fabulous food. Whether you're hoping to enjoy the ambiance of our indoor dining room, our locally crafted wood bar top, or the fresh breezes of our covered outdoor patio - there is room for everyone. Our atmosphere is inviting for romantic evenings, cocktails with friends, and family gatherings. We pride ourselves on serving locally roasted coffee from The Brown Bean, and we offer several local brews on tap and by the bottle. Menu choices include options to please the young and the old, the adventurous and the picky eaters, and anyone who enjoys delicious fresh food at reasonable prices. We also offer a full bar with extensive wine and cocktail choices.
