My wife and I have eaten here several times and it is always good. The food is fresh and prepared well. On a visit this week my wife had the Mahi Mahi for the first time. She loved it. I had a very nice chicken curry. The service was adequate, not outstanding, but sufficient. All in all the meal and... More

The food was wonderful--I had the fish tacos--and the service was great. It was a bit loud, but that's to be expected on a Friday night. The place is well worth seeking out!

We had brunch there today and it was horrible. The hostess was sassy and rude, the waitress was careless and the food was yucky. We had a great first experience there but this time around was Bad. The brunch dishes were undercooked, over sauced and just plain terrible. The waitress knew the food was bad as demonstrated by not checking... More

The Hanger steak was delicious, tender and tasty. My husband had the salmon and it was excellent as well. There was no wait, and the server was friendly and took care of our every need. The atmosphere great. Definitely the place to go in North Carolina.

I just read all the reviews for this restaurant, and I am offended by the rude reviews. THIS IS A GREAT PLACE. They have great food, and I highly recommend the fried green tomatoes BLT, and the fish tacos. They have half a dozen local brews on tap. They have a great staff, attentive and charming people. This just reminds... More

After a hard Mtn bike ride we were famished. Waitress was precious but food was just ok. Or maybe I was so hungry I needed more food.

Food was fantastic. Steak was delicious and salad was too. Wine and beer hit the spot. Just wish We'd known the table outside on the little side porch is where the smokers congregate. Maybe put a sign up letting people know :-)

It is the perfect day. Go to a concert at the Brevard Music Center in the awesome mountain setting. Then over to the Square Root for the Curry Lamb Meatballs, the local ale made down the road at the Oskar Blues brewery and get a little discount with your restaurant.com certificate number. Not anymore. The new chef took the curry... More

Went to this restaurant based on a local merchants recommendation. Arrived at 4:45. Noticed a couple of tables outside were occupied and a couple of people at the bar. No tables inside were occupied. Hostess asked if we wanted to sit outside. We preferred not to. She then inquired as to if we had reservations. We did not. Was told... More

We were strolling through prepared City North Carolina looking for a restaurant. We came across this restaurant by accident. Everything was amazing. The five spice tuna was amazing. I can't say enough about this place. Even our waiter Taylor was great. I will definitely tell the world about it.
