This was a cute place. A little hidden and the hostess booth is outside...weird... it was mainly reservations only but they did have a waiting list in case the table became open. Between four and six appetizers are half price so we ordered 3 and made that our meal. The food was very fresh and trendy but my boyfriend is... More

The Square Root is a fun, little bit quirky kind of a hang out that sits in an alley, right across from the town chocolate shop. It often has some local, easy-listening live music, and they don't mind if you just hang out on the porch with a drink or two. The food is sometimes good/sometimes not so..... but one... More

The food here never disappoints! I love the house salad with an added skewer of shrimp. If you have room the tuxedo cheesecake is fabulous!

My wife and I stayed a night in Brevard on our motorcycle and were recommended to try the Square Root by the manager at the Sunset Motel. The food was excellent, service was outstanding (Kody was our waiter) and the decor and vibe was very cool.

The staff was very friendly. The waitress was very nice and engaging. The food has it's own taste that the chef has honed in on to be very flavorful. My husband and I were trying to figure out his hamburger's secret ingredient that made it have a different taste but oh so delish. My meal was a Fig Salad that... More

I loved the chicken lettuce wraps at The Square Root so much I had them two nights in a row! I also had the summer rolls which were very good and the calamari which was excellent. I often order calamari but am not often impressed. The Square Root calamari is tender with a well seasoned, crispy fried exterior. Both dipping... More

Was not our first choice but it was the only seating available to us since we did not have reservations. I had the catfish on cornbread with greens, all topped with a cheese sauce. very good. Wife had the pork----a huge serving. I would make reservations on a return visit so we could dine inside in the cool and be... More

Our group of four adults and four kids had a great meal here! All of the food was excellent and the kids menu was good. The atmosphere and location can't be beat. We were not in a hurry, so the slow pace was fine. Our service issues are more about a lack of silverware until we flagged down a different... More
