We were very impressed with the food and service. Great atmosphere at Christmas in old Albemarle downtown. Prices are very reasonable.

“Small Restaurant with Big Taste”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2013

I had read some reviews about the restaurant so my husband and I decided to try it out. It was wonderful! The food was perfect and the service was great. If we lived in Albemarle it would be a place we'd eat at least once a week. If I'm ever that way again, it will be the first place I stop. It’s a cozy place with big taste.

“Wonderfully surprised!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

I come to Albemarle often for business. It is sometimes difficult knowing that Charlotte is so close and yet so far away. I did not realize that there was this quality of restaurant in such a small town. Off the Square could easily be placed in any large city in America and would hold its own. Staff was super friendly and the decor is really cool. Nice drink menu and the food is so good! I highly recommend the baked brie. It was perfectly cooked and has a great balance of flavors. This will be my new business trip dinner. I can not wait to come back!

“Wonderful food and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal recently at Off the Square. This place is a treasure ! The quaint atmosphere and delicious food were the perfect way to top off a nice day and visit to nearby Dennis Vineyards and Winery. The well prepared dishes were some of the best we've experienced and the prices are incredible. Great friendly service from knowledgeable staff was also a nice treat. We are looking forward to a return visit soon and will gladly make the 45 minute drive from our home in Matthews.

“Thanks to Tripadvisor reviewers for recommending this place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

Based on Tripadvisor ranking we stopped here for lunch when driving through town. All 6 of us enjoyed it. The deviled eggs, homemade pimento cheese, and sweet potato chips were awesome. I was told the burger was also very good. Good choice!
