Reviews

Best restaurant in Brevard. Take time to find it in an alley off Main St. Great bar, food and service. Something for everyone on the menu. Half price bottles of wine on Mon and Weds. Square Root salad is amazing. Enjoy! Hey, I live 25 min away over a mountain and I'm there twice a week. :) Must be good.

We were sent to this restaurant by a nice bartender at The Bold Rock Cidery. He said if we want great food in Brevard, we need to go here. So we took his recommendation and didn't regret it. It was Sunday Brunch and my husband said his omelette was the best he ever had. And I was happy to hear they had gluten free bread! It was ... read more

We had an amazing dinner. My husband had the rabbit and crawfish gumbo and I had the scallop saltimbica (scallops over smoked tomato risotto with lemon and caper butter). They were outstanding.

Just celebrated my nephew's wedding in Brevard, and had dinner at The Square Root. It was simply great. The staff was responsive and kind. I had the eggplant and it was the best I have ever had. We sat on the porch, and the night was just perfect.

Sunday Brunch
Great place for Sunday Brunch. Food was delicious and $3.00 mimosas!! Husband had eggs over easy and they were perfect. I had the Smoked Salmon frittata with grits, it was rich and heavenly. Nice touch was the inclusion of a piece of sweet bread, yummy!!

The 5 Spice Tuna entree was excellent. The combination of all the flavors was amazing and the coconut rice added another perfect flavor. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Enjoyed dinner here when visiting Brevard recently: robust menu, good choices for everyone, nice variety, great service. Particularly enjoyed the Havana eggrolls!

Great Experience
Excellent food and service. Great menu variety. Nice facility. A little tricky to find. Hidden in an alley, but there is public parking on street and pay parking lot across from alley. Well worth the minor inconvenience.

We took a drive from Greenville, SC to Brevard, NC. Noyt a lot of options at 4pm, but Square Root was amazing. Fresh and unique flavors. I had the Black Bean burger, and my friend had the curry chicken. Both are excellent. We'd come again.

Square Root was very quaint in atmosphere. We tried to get a table by the window but they were reserving it for a party of12. The pork shank with pickled carrots & cabbage was delicious. Be forewarned that the shank is huge & looks like something out of The Flintstones due to size. Portions are quite generous so you won't go hungry. ... read more

I fell in love with this place even before the food arrived. The food did not disappoint. Baby back ribs with a ginger, chili glaze and rabbit gumbo, (more a stew than a gumbo but good none the less). Service was great and all the staff appeared to enjoy working here. Will definately come back if I am ever in Brevard again.
