I have been there several times and like that they have gluten free items on the menu. This last time we were there was over Labor Day weekend and during the Apple Festival. They were busy but we were ale to get a table without a wait. The menu has a wide variety of choices - something for everyone in... More

My husband and I and two friends had lunch here during a heavy traffic weekend of Apple festival. We were seated quickly and taken well care of by our server. She recommended two sandwiches, and we all should have listened to her. I had the small spinach salad, it was OK, but obviously prepared ahead of time. Hubby and the... More

I have been dining at Never Blue for years and I have never been blue after leaving. The only thing better than the service is the great food. The owners are always present, and it shows in the quality. A must try if you have never been.

This restaurant is simply great. I had eaten here in the past and thought it was quite excellent when I first dined here. I returned two weeks ago and found it to be even better than I had remembered. For starters, they make a mango sangria that is as tasty a sangria as you will find, perhaps anywhere. The salads...

Boyfriend and I were not sure where to go for dinner on our first night in Hendersonville and looking here on Trip Advisor didn't help, there were many other great choices. I chose this restaurant over the others with good reviews because of its name (crazy I know) and I am really glad I did. An appreciable assortment of tapas,... More

We have only been there for lunch, but have always been impressed by the excellence of the food. Disagree with the reviewer on the size of portions, as we feel many of the sandwiches could be shared. The hamburger is amazing, ground tenderloin, cooked to order. Drinks are imaginative and varied. Everything is a touch above ordinary casual restaurants. I... More

My sister and I ate here while passing through town. It was recommended by a local and we are glad we took his recommendation. I had the kale and quinoa salad and it was delicious. My sister got the tacos and enjoyed them. I would like to go again at dinner time to sample some of the cocktails and try... More

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
