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

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.

We visited Never Blue again on a Friday evening with 3 other couples-total of 8 in our party. We were seated promptly but in a dark, dimly lit room. 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
