We came on a busy Saturday. The food and service was both excellent! Prices were reasonable. Husband got Cuban and I got short rib grilled cheese and we both loved them. Lots of desserts offered but we didn't partake. I would eat here again!

Talk about whole in the wall. We are in downtown Brevard and The Square Root is in a back alley .....tucked away....kinda hard to find. My wife and I were walking around and uncovered this gem. You walk in and you feel at home. Dim lighting, mixed media walls that switch from brick to stone. Paintings all over the walls... More

Recently visited Brevard for the first time and we were looking for a place for dinner. We found this restaurant by chance and it was amazing! The server was great, attentive and extremely knowledgeable about the menu. We tried a variety of entrees from the five spice tuna to the pork shank and they were all delicious. Will definitely head... More

We had lunch here, it's a varied menu although not quite the same level of creativity you'd see on their dinner menu. Portions are a little inconsistent - the soup and salad was actually quite a bit larger than the sandwiches. Overall though, everything was very tasty.

We were hunting for some good burgers in Brevard, and the ones at Square Root are by far the best we've found. While the other entrees can be pricey, the burgers are reasonable, generously sized, and delicious. They even have a really good veggie burger! They have a limited draft beer selection, but they offer some good choices. Great atmosphere... More

Just had an early Valentines dinner it was excellent! I had the tuna with coconut rice, hubby had the hanger steak both were fabulous! Lots of beer choices & drink. On a side street off of either Main Street or Jordan Street with public parking. Very friendly staff! Love this place!!!

One of our favorite go-to places in Brevard. Last visit was for lunch with friends from out-of-town, and the menu is eclectic enough to suit the most discriminating palate. Sunday brunch is also a treat.

We love coming here for a girls' lunch or a family and friends dinner. My 2 favorite items are both appetizers...the Brie with apples and Frangelico praline sauce and the Cajun Shrimp and Grits. I always order at least one of these items. Can't wait to dine there again.

The Channel 70 Video Productions crew stopped in after work. I had my usual cheeseburger and fries and it was delicious. And, service here keeps getting better and better. Street parking-only is a minus. Overall, a keeper.
