Very Good Food

The selection was great and the food delicious. The Shrimp and Grits and Tacos were excellent. The side of grits was very good as well. We shared the Devils on Horseback which were tasty but very rich. We had the brownie and bread pudding for dessert. Both were good and should be shared. On a side... read more

We checked into Bee Hive Cottages & Terry mentioned this and a couple of other places. My wife googled it, and drove over and walked in. Having done all of my 14 years of post-high-school education in Charleston, S. C., I was sure that I'd never find a "shrimp & grits" that would top my favorite in that city. Never... More

Delightful venue for picking and choosing an array of dishes (tapas)! Be adventuresome and share dishes. You won't regret the experience. Food is appetizing and tasty. Service is casual and friendly. Request a window side table and watch the parade of locals and tourists file past.

My husband and I were looking for somewhere to eat on Main Street in Hendersonville recently. After checking out menus at several places we noticed one restaurant with many people eating outside. We thought that must be good and we were right. Ever Blue is a unique restaurant with a large selection of foods to pick from. We stared with... More

We dined at the Never Blue having eaten here a year ago. Next door to the Flat Rock Playhouse Downtown it was the perfect location for lunch before the matinee. A varied menu with tapas items too. Pump husband chose the fish taco and shrimp taco. While taco shell was small a lot of fish and shrimp. I went with... More

I have been enjoying Never Blue for years. I have been there for casual meals and lunches, as well as selecting them to have my retirement party there. The people waiting on me each time are friendly and well attentive. I love the tapas style menu because i can experience several foods in one sitting. I have had only delightful... More

Their decor is gorgeous, the food delightful --I like the shrimp and grits--and they have the best chocolate cake I've ever eaten. One serving is enough for six people, and it takes a chocolate high to a new level of decadence.

Not your average menu. More of a tapas style variety of foods. Lovely courtyard dining when the weather is nice and you can sit back, eat, drink wine, and people watch while you eat.
