Hard to find but worth the hunt.  Always fresh and good, fabulous service as well.  Well rounded menu and drink selection.  When we are close by we always stop and grab a bite.

We were traveling with our dog, and looked up dog friendly restaurants that were close to our location. We stumbled upon The Square Root, and they did not disappoint!

We sat outside for lunch and it was so nice. My sister lives in Brevard so she's been there many times. Great selection and all price range. Got the 1/2 sandwich and corn chowder which was wonderful. Very friendly staff and would definitely go back.

Good dinner, great service.
Most enjoyable meal with great service for a group of 13. Scallops were delicious, pork was good, though the sweet potato gnocchi were disappointing.other folks seemed to enjoys their meals, esp. the salmon.

I had the Cobb salad with shrimp and it was amazing! My Mom had the fish tacos and said they were in her too three favorites of all time. Great live bluegrass band playing in the alley out back and a great crowd! Definitely making this a regular spot for our trips out to Brevard!

Ate here last night. I had a burger which was excellent and my wife had the chicken sandwich which she says was excellent as well. I did not have an issue with service or staff they were friendly. The 4 stars is just for price and serving size(on the small side). $10 plus for a burger and a small amount of fries.

Omg. This is NOT the stuffed flounder from the 1972 steakhouse. Crab stuffed with Dijon sauce and bacon Brussel sprouts. This is the first time I ate Brussel sprouts and LIKED them. No -- LOVED them! Truly the best fish dish I have EVER eaten.

More than expected
Not sure what I expected but the name of the restaurant sort of threw me. However, it was overall impressive. We were seated quickly, in spite of all the people attending The White Squirrel festival. Our waitress was very quick to get our drink order and we were quickly given a menu and our utensils. What we ordered: An 8 ounce chees ... read more

The  NC Mountain Trout - Local Trout with a Crawfish Stuffing, topped with a Lobster Mornay Sauce, and served with Pimento Cheese Grits and Bacon Braised Collard Greens - was one of the most memorable dishes I've had the pleasure of dining on, pleasing to both the taste buds and the eye. The chef is truly an artist!

Each and every time we have dined here, the service and the food have been spot on. Great selections. Great specials. Great atmosphere and great servers. Square Root has been providing great everything for quite a long time and should be proud. Kudos to you.

If you are in Brevard, or even in the area, this is a great place to eat. We have been here several times and Mothers Day is the most recent. The menu is eclectic with many choices.

Some how we've managed to miss this gem on our trips to Western NC. Excellent food and service. Cold and rainy day and the hostess told us they were booked up when we arrived but we hung around and managed to get seated at a table. Everything was DELICIOUS and this will be a return spot on future trips for sure.

We loved this restaurant! The trout was out of this world and the stuffing was even better. All our sides were excellent as well. We were there on a Monday and the place was packed.

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
