Best place in town!
We eat here nearly every time we're in Bernard! It never disappoints us. We had the After Thanksgiving turkey sandwich which was delicious! It may be a little hard to find as it is in an alleyway. Always busy! Very friendly staff . Don't miss this restaurant!

Worth walking down an alley to find it
This is a beautiful restaurant with lots of eclectic finishings such as a yellow pine tiled floor and a gorgeous bar made from re-purposed Ambrosia maple. Our salads were 12 and $13 which could be pricey, but both the Southwest Cobb and the Tuna Tataki were delicious. Outdoor seating, cool environment, and a really nice place to eat ... read more

Great food, terrible service
April 14th, 2017 - We walk in about 7pm. Told the wait for a table was about 20 minutes. That was fine. We sat at bar had a drink. The hostess (purple tips on her hair) wasn't very friendly and seemed irritated that she even had to be there. When our table was ready, she called to us (we were sitting at the very end of the bar in the ... read more

Hidden but found!
Looking for somewhere to eat during our stay in Brevard. It was after 8 and a few restaurants had closed. For some reason, my husband drove down the alley and found this gem. We ate in the bar area, as the restaurant was about to close. Staff told us we had 8 minutes yet, and were very willing to serve us but we chose the bar atmosph ... read more

Lunch on the Porch
We had lunch on the porch at Square Root. The service was great, the food was delicious and the porch seating was comfortable. I ordered the hot ham and fig sandwich with housemade sweet potato chips...oh my, those chips are tasty. My husband enjoyed his fish taco. Located down an alley, Square Root is a bit difficult to find but cer ... read more

This is one of the top (if not the top) restaurants in Brevard!
Been here several times most recently for dinner 3 days ago. Excellent food and service -- wide choices on the menu and from what I could tell everything is good or very good. I am trying to keep/take weight off so that it was important to be conscious of my calories. Hence I did not choose to sample some of the tastier looking dishe ... read more

I especially like the outdoor seating.
This is one of our favorite casual places to eat in Brevard. It is especially nice on a pleasant day where sitting outside is comfortable. They cater to customers who bring their dogs for outside seating. The menu is large enough to fit most tastes. They have some very good salad choices that can be upgraded with fish or chicken.

We came on a busy Saturday. The food and service was both excellent! Prices were reasonable. Husband got Cuban and I got short rib grilled cheese and we both loved them. Lots of desserts offered but we didn't partake. I would eat here again!

Recently visited Brevard for the first time and we were looking for a place for dinner. We found this restaurant by chance and it was amazing!

Talk about whole in the wall. We are in downtown Brevard and The Square Root is in a back alley .....tucked away....kinda hard to find. My wife and I were walking around and uncovered this gem.

Lunch is good, not as creative as Dinner
We had lunch here, it's a varied menu although not quite the same level of creativity you'd see on their dinner menu. Portions are a little inconsistent - the soup and salad was actually quite a bit larger than the sandwiches. Overall though, everything was very tasty.
dbaaronson via tripadvisor.com - Feb 14, 2017
Great menu. Better to have reservations or you may have to wait. Both my wife and I agree that the food was tasty and well presented. Get a seat inside if you can; it's crowded on the front porch. Very good service.
Philip Sheppard via google.com - Feb 13, 2017
Delightful Lunch
One of our favorite go-to places in Brevard. Last visit was for lunch with friends from out-of-town, and the menu is eclectic enough to suit the most discriminating palate. Sunday brunch is also a treat.

Favorite in Brevard
Just had an early Valentines dinner it was excellent! I had the tuna with coconut rice, hubby had the hanger steak both were fabulous! Lots of beer choices & drink. On a side street off of either Main Street or Jordan Street with public parking. Very friendly staff! Love this place!!!

Tasty spot with great vegetarian options
We were hunting for some good burgers in Brevard, and the ones at Square Root are by far the best we've found. While the other entrees can be pricey, the burgers are reasonable, generously sized, and delicious. They even have a really good veggie burger! They have a limited draft beer selection, but they offer some good choices. Grea ... read more

We love coming here for a girls' lunch or a family and friends dinner. My 2 favorite items are both appetizers...the Brie with apples and Frangelico praline sauce and the Cajun Shrimp and Grits. I always order at least one of these items. Can't wait to dine there again.

This is the only restaurant for me when it comes to impressing out of town family & business contacts. One of my customers comes all the way from Toronto and insists we go for dinner at Square Root at least once. Absolutely the best food in WNC. I'm originally from Miami and this restaurant rivals the best of the big city offerings!

A setting from the past, wooden floors , old style brick walls and a bar top that is one of a kind. The Angus burger was outstanding and the corn chowder, was fantastic.
