Had lunch at Never Blue upon the recommendation of a friend in the area, who described it as a tapas place with large portions. Perhaps my expectations were too high, but the synopsis is that the food is good, but portions are smaller than what you’d expect, even with tapas. We tried a variety of dishes: Hummus with Rainbow carrots,... More

I ordered the special fish taco and couldn't finish it. The waitress suggested I order more than one because they were small; which was true. Fish was soggy but slaw was ok. Husband ordered quesadilla which he said was ok. They offered a discount if you pay cash which was a positive. Flies in window was not.

I loved this restaurant! Kinda quirky with it's mismatched pillows on seats but the drinks (Bloody Marys) were good and spicy, burgers were huge and tasty, but my favorite was the Big (BUTT) Cake. Yummo! Waitress was excellent and friendly. Definitely recommend and would come back when I'm in Hendersonville.

So dark we had trouble reading the print on the menu. 4 in our party ordered the fish dinner-all were happy with one incident. 3 in our party ordered a beef... More

Gorgeous interior is an eye pleaser as is the fare. Presentation is an art form that Never Blue has mastered. There is a great bar area and two dining areas, one inside and one with doors that swing open, weather permitting. Lots of gluten free and vegan fare will please some. Plentiful offerings for us carnivores are also on the... More

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
