This place is great! It is a little hidden but we'll worth the find. Food is super fresh and delicious! Atmosphere is very nice and the service is great. They are super friendly.

Say yes to the Flounder
Let’s just get this out of the way: I don’t usually order seafood if the sea isn’t nearby. Just a lifelong habit, I guess. So when Alycia recommended the stuffed flounder with the roasted Brussels sprouts, I resisted. But she insisted. I’m glad she persisted....More ... read more

Must visit
You can’t go to Brevard and not go to The Square Root. We were looking for a lite lunch and chose to eat at the bar on this visit. We had a charcuterie tray that was incredible. We also tried the pretzels which were fabulous.

What a special place! So unique. Sat at the bar with John, what a great guy! Went in for a late lunch and thoroughly enjoyed our Bloody Mary and the food was phenomenal. Very creative menu. Also enjoyed our "rescue dogs and kitties" chat with Josh. This is definitely one place you cannot miss if you are in the area. We live about an ... read more

Memorable dishes! Unique Veggie dishes!
Best Eggplant Parmesan for miles. Buffalo Cauliflower & Wok Brussel sprouts are 2 MUST not miss Appetizers!! NC Trout fabulous with pimento grits. Thanks for staying open late for Sunday diners!

I really loved this place! Nice atmosphere, great service, delicious food, and neat location. My NC rainbow trout with crawfish stuffing and pimento cheese grits was awesome (bacon collards just ok). My husband's coffee pub steak and truffle mac 'n cheese was tough and not impressive. The key lime pie was great. We'll definitely be b ... read more

Not bad but not special
We ate the rabbit gumbo and fish and chips. It was just alright. The service was good but hoped for more flavorful food considering the ratings.

Best place in Brevard
So this is our go-to place when we want a good quality, hearty dinner. From salads to drinks to entrees, this place is delicious! I highly recommend the chicken Marsala, catfish, and trout entrees.
Blondy20 via - Sep 4, 2019
Every menu option is delicious-- and we have tried many of them! We have gone 3 times in our 2 trips to Brevard, and to be honest: I am longing for our next visit already!

I have had meals here many times over the years and it is my favorite restaurant in Brevard. Take a close look at the floor and the bar when you go. Servers are friendly, food is tasty, prices are reasonable - trifecta!

This is a really cool little place in a small alley off of Main St in the heart of Brevard. On a Friday afternoon, the place was packed with a lunch crowd until after 130pm. The atmosphere is very laid-back with both inside and outside seating. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The menu is small but there's a good variety.
