Description: 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.

“Meh...”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

We've been visiting Brevard for years & have eaten at Square Roots quite a few times. Not sure we'll be back after tonight. We had made reservations and showed up on time. After being seated, we waited 20 minutes without anyone taking a drink order. My husband went inside to ask for a server and I asked one of the many servers walking by if we could order drinks. A server finally showed up and said she was sorry, but hadn't noticed us. Um...kind of a problem for someone working in the service industry. We did order drinks and appetizers, which arrived in a timely manner. They were fresh and tasty. The atmosphere is also nice on the porch with plenty of people watching opportunities. Entrees were fine, but our service was inconsistent. My son's meal was wrong & we had to wait for the correct meal. Very disappointed because the restaurant has a wide variety of selections, but the staff needs to get a clue.

“Great food!”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

We had an early dinner after strolling around Brevard for the White Squirrel Festival. I had the cedar plank salmon and it was delicious!

“Oustanding meal”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Square Root is a smallish place tucked away in a alley across from a chocolate shop. It has a front porch if you'd rather eat outside, but you may want to pop in to peek at the wooden floor, (made up of over 6,000 tiles!) and the unique bar. We had the cedar-plank salmon and the pan-seared scallops with pumpkin risotto. All of our food was amazing, but the scallops - they were the best scallops I've ever had. They almost melted in my mouth, with a buttery texture that's to die for. The service was excellent, as every request was promptly filled with a smile. We can't WAIT to go back to Square Root and those heavenly scallops. Highly recommend.
