Good Food, Quirky Fun Atmosphere

Our group went by for lunch and were seated in the "garage" area - shielded from the sun but a nice breeze. I was blown away by the number of brews on tap and settled on a delicious Mama's Little Yella Pils at our server's suggestion. My Fried Chicken Po' Boy Babies were very good and my husband... read more

We recently had dinner at Never Blue and were very pleasantly surprised how tasty our meal was. It was Margarita Wednesday so a bit crowded however we were seated fairly quickly at an outside table - it was a nice evening to be outside. I had the roasted beet salad and a black bean tostada - really good! My husband... More

Advised to try for fun and eclectic dining, but we are surprised to find the number of choices marked clearly as GF on their extensive menu. We are a half GF and half non-GF family, so finding good healthy foods for all can be fun. This place accomplished the challenge with ease. The Tarpon Springs Greek Salad is both GF... More

Funky, eclectic, and colorful atmosphere with delicious food. Must try if you are in the Hendo area or visiting downtown. Stroll down Main Street and pop in for an appetizer, if nothing else. So good....

Favorite restaurant in Hendersonville ! Trendy and great burgers... other unique dishes are good too. This should be your first stop, then Mikes on Main for a milkshake.

Interesting menu choices. Lots of nice options. The corn appetizer is fantastic! They have a dessert to dive into. It has its own bowl, homemade and awesome. Great hospitality' We have been twice in two weeks and the food was excellent. Generous portion of shrimp, great Gouda grits!

Worst dining experience I have ever had. Two of our party's meals showed up 55 minutes AFTER the rest of us had eaten. Management: They truly didn't care.

Hi, I am the owner of this business. Dear Reader, I would like to clarify details of this reviewers experience that she is failing to mention. This reviewer and two other men from her party physically assaulted my manager (a female) and were escorted off the property by the local police department. Any patron that feels the need to physically... More
