Atmosphere is perfect for a mountain town. Lunch and dinner offerings are always fresh and good variety.

Our second trip here while visiting Hendersonville. Staff and a Owner always So pleasant and accommodating. We wanted the latest seating available and gladly obliged! Food was wonderful! I had the crab cakes this time and shrimp and grits last time. Awesome, fun atmosphere and decor! We will be back!

We have a family mountain house here in Hendersonville. This is my favorite place by far. I take all my friends and family when they are in town and they agree. The food is always fresh and packed with flavor. I have never been disappointed in anything I have from the great martinis to the flatbreads. We wnt the other... More

Can't say I agree with PJC. My husband and I took my dad to Never Blue last night and enjoyed a very pleasant leisurely meal out on the sidewalk; the people-watching was a huge part of the pleasure. Dad had the very seafood pasta mentioned by PJC and thoroughly enjoyed it. The kale-and-quinoa salad I had was exceptionally fresh and... More

I'm not difficult to please, but I won't return to Never Blue. Having read great reviews on Tripadvisor, we chose Never Blue for our Anniversary dinner while on a long anniversary weekend to the Hendersonville/Brevard area. Described as a Tapas restaurant, it really isn't. For some, this may be a good thing. While there are several salads and appetizers with... More

Right next door to the Downtown Playhouse, Never Blue is a great little restaurant with a quirky eye-pleasing decor. Don't let the tapas bar description put you off - many entrees are a good size. We went for lunch and had the fish & chips and beef tenderloin quesadilla. Fish was a perfectly done thick tilapia with lemon caper tartar... More

The food was good, and the service was good. We were not fans of the high chairs, however. We had a difficult time getting in and out of the high tables. The chairs didn't slide easily.

This was a new restaurant for a friend and me. I read the online reviews first. Some were negative, so I was worried about recommending it for a first time try with a pal. But it was delightful. We each had a different salad/appetizer and split an entrée. Each dish was well presented and delicious. Service was very good, no... More

It is amazing that someone can come up with crazy sounding names that makes you want to try the food. No matter the name, the food was great and presentation was as well. The next time there, I have to try the Big A@@ Cake.
