My sister and I ordered unsweetened tea with extra lemon...tea came out with no lemon. When we asked again for lemon, the waitress brought 3 thin slices on a paper napkin. Strike one! For lunch we ordered the Cuban sandwich with pasta salad and fried green tomatoes. The sandwich was a nice size, bread was fresh, but sandwich was served... More

Good food. Okay service but don't expect to have a reasonable conversation with your companions if you are dining inside. Noise level extremely high.

I loved the fact that they offer gluten free bread and gluten free preparation of many dishes. The servers were pleasant. The outdoor seating was great. The lamb is fabulous !

My wife and I and another couple enjoyed dining here for dinner in July 2016. The food, drinks, and service were all very good. Even the outdoor seating - which at first glance doesn't seem great since it is in an alley - was quite enjoyable with the ceiling fans helping keep us cool on a hot summer evening. Three... More

My wife and I have been going to the Brevard Music Festival every summer for about fifteen years. It's been a great experience marred only by the scarcity of good restaurants in Brevard. After years of meals that were mostly a snore, we finally hit one that enhances rather than detracts from our Brevard experience. We went to this place... More

Fish tacos were quite the disappointment! Love the location and the tables aren't so close together that you feel like you are on top your neighbors. However, the noise level is intense, as there are no soft surfaces in the entire building. Bar has nice atmosphere.

Menu changes and lots of specials available. Great bar. Fried green tomatoes. Great service. Outside dining available, but it's on an alley so cars may go by.

Located in a beautifully restored historic building...down a quiet alley in the heart of Downtown Brevard, The Square Root Restaurant is as well known for its architectural and artistic decor as it is for its fabulous food. Whether you're hoping to enjoy the ambiance of our indoor dining room, our locally crafted wood bar top, or the fresh breezes of our covered outdoor patio - there is room for everyone. Our atmosphere is inviting for romantic evenings, cocktails with friends, and family gatherings. We pride ourselves on serving locally roasted coffee from The Brown Bean, and we offer several local brews on tap and by the bottle. Menu choices include options to please the young and the old, the adventurous and the picky eaters, and anyone who enjoys delicious fresh food at reasonable prices. We also offer a full bar with extensive wine and cocktail choices.
