Our atmosphere is inviting for romantic evenings, cocktails with friends, and family gatherings. We pride ourselves on serving locally roasted coffee from The Brown Bean, and we offer several local brews on tap and by the bottle.

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.

Went here on a somewhat busy night, but it wasn’t full. First round of wine ordered took quite a while and when I queried the delay I was told my selection wasn’t in stock. Several couples who came in after us had finished their meals before we got ours? Had to ask another waiter to find our waitress to get... More

I was in Brevard for a day trip with my folks, and this restaurant had come highly recommended by a friend. The Square Root is located about halfway down a lane/alley off of Main Street. It has a funky vibe with local artwork on the walls and recycled wooden floors. We were seated promptly just before noon - the restaurant... More

Stopped by yesterday for lunch around 2:15pm. We were told after we ordered that a large party (20plus) were waiting for their food and it would be 20-30 minutes. Since it was raining lightly, we decided to stay and ordered appetizers. Those came quickly and were good. From that point on it went downhill. It was 45 minutes before we... More

Servers and cooks are willing to go the extra mile to accommodate special requests from customers - like me.- Love the decorations in the bar and paintings in general, including fancy frames. Seems the place itself used to be the printing room for a local newspaper many years ago and the floor still keeps it's original strong wood supports while... More

We ordered fried green tomatoes and eggplant; both to our dismay had a thick greasy crust of a what appeared to be cornmeal batter (think: a really greasy hush-puppy). We also had zucchini fries, another big mistake. We couldn't taste any of the vegetables in this dish, leaving us to believe that the cook hates the taste of vegetables and... More

We have been coming to the Square Root for years. It a great lunch spot tucked away in a side alley in Brevard. A local gem for it's upscale and fresh food prep with an interesting interior to match it's uniqueness. Check out the wood tile floors and amazing bar, but don't forget the food here is also special. It's... More
