Duck wontons. Hamburgers. Brittle basket. You will not regret trying Never Blue. We will be back once our stomach makes space :)

Lousy service. Drinks expensive - pours measured! Party of 4 ordered appetizers and tapas' food was served without small plates. Where was the waitress? Problems ignored, and management was insulting. As good as the food is we will not return. For the money spent we can get great food and good service elseware.

This is the third time I have eaten at Never Blue and while all three time the food and service was stellar, there was something about today's meal that made it one of the best restaurant experiences I have ever had, My friend and I arrived to a smiling, friendly hostess who promptly seated us in the garage part of...

My first trip to Never Blue tonight. We did not have reservations so there was a little wait, but it was well worth it. The service was good and so was the food. We have four of the Tapas plates and it was too much food. My wife says the sangria was excellent. We will definitely be back (with a... More

What an incredible eating experience! The menu is broad,. Many GF entrées. All 4 of us loved our dinners. The desserts were some of the best I have ever seen anywhere. The wait staff was very attentive to our need. You won't be disappointed!

My husband and I have eaten here a few times and picked it to take friends for lunch who were visiting for the weekend, before going to the Flatrock Playhouse downtown. Lesley was our server, who was quite helpful with the menu. My husband had the Shrimp and Grits and I had the Tenderloin Quesadilla, both being repeats for both... More

Never Blue is a different kind of restaurant with new and different items on the menu. The atmosphere is fun and the wait staff is friendly and helpful. There are always items for the "not so adventurous" and items for the "what the heck I have never tired this before group". Not fancy, jeans are fine. Not overpriced. Good casual... More

Very nice atmosphere, but the food was not the best in Hendersonville. I had the shrimp and grits and would not recommend. The pot roast looked good. We shared tiramisu was fantastic. Many unusual choices. Will probably try again with a different entrée.

Just had a great Thanksgiving dinner at Never Blue. There were all the favorites like cornbread and celery dressing, turkey etc, but a lot of things with Chef Jessie Rocque's creative touch. The pumpkin ravioli, the winter greens, sweet potato casserole and mushroom medley were delicious. The service was very good. The staff had obviously been trained to keep things... More

Went to Never Blue with daughter and granddaughter before going next door or a play. I had the pulled pork tostada which was a great combination of flavors. Eclectic setting and great service.
