Great Find!
This is a gem if you like small local restaurants with a comfortable feel. It was busy with what seemed to be tourists and locals. It is not a typical menu for a small town restaurant. There were many items with something different that made...More ... read more

Everything was perfection. Best meal we've had in our trip to NC and we've eaten at very nice places. Even the least expensive wine choices (Pinot Grigio and Cab) were very good. The 2 appetizers of brussel sprouts and pecan encrusted brie were phenomenal and so generous we ended up splitting a dinner. The salmon had a quality taste, ... read more

Hidden - but so worth it!
We did Sunday brunch for our first trip here. We’ve been to most places in Brevard (we love Brevard) but found this by searching around town for a show store. It’s in an alleyway. But has a great deck (sat outside in December). We started...More ... read more

My Bride and I discovered this place a few years ago and has become a regular Go-To when up around Pisgah National Forest.  The decor is what you would expect in Brevard.  The Wooden Bar gorgeous and the floor is a cross section of 6x6 wooden beams.  There are some good photos in the picture section.  You'll find the Square Root down ... read more

Fantastic food, lovely and staff, inviting atmosphere! It was my first visit, and I would highly recommend this place to others. Everything was perfect. Our waitress, Kelly, was awesome, attentive, and funny. All of the food, from the appetizers to the main course, was delicious and perfectly cooked. I can't wait to go back!

Good ingredients, combinations and service. Execution of the dishes is a little off. One dish had a lot of salt and the pork chop on the other dish was not tender. Other items on plate were very good. NO PARKING. Walk up only. Reservations recommended.

Very good food and the menu looked great. I definitely want to come back again. I would 4.5 if I could but could not give 5 as we had a party of 8 and 1 person did not get his food until the rest of us were almost finished eating. The staff were very friendly!!

Cool little resstraunt tucked in an alley in Brevard. We visited after the Halloween festival earlier that day. We were pretty hungry and had about a 45 minute wait.

One of the Best in Brevard
We chose to eat at the Square Root several times while visiting Brevard. We loved that they were dog friendly and we could take our precious Maltese to the nice outside dining area. The staff is welcoming and the food is outstanding.
