Location and contact

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,

My husband found this restaurant online, and it is amazing. There are a lot of familiar dishes with a fresh spin, and it’s all cooked expertly. The server was really nice and friendly, the atmosphere was laid back and artsy, and we loved every minute.

Fresh food - we all ordered the salads which were fresh and large enough to be filling. The atmosphere is cozy and comfortable. They do outside dining for when the weather is better. Has a separate bar. Service was good and quick.

We stopped by Brevard on a day trip from Highlands. Our destination restaurant was closed for remodeling, so we stopped a couple of locals and asked for recommendations and they suggested The Square Root. We were very happy with our selection and the food and...More

Went for lunch. We liked it so much, we went for dinner too! It’s down an alley so you have to pay attention to where you are going. It was half off a bottle of wine day so we took advantage of that.

Had a great dinner at The Square Root tonight. From the brie appetizer through salads, entrees and a fudgy gluten-free chocolate tart, Julia helpfully guided our selections. We enjoyed it all and will be back!

It had been a couple years since I'd eaten here and I vowed to make a point to return soon. From the baked pecan crusted brie to the grilled shrimp salad to the char-grilled chicken breast with Boursin cheese, SqRt delivered on all counts. Back...More
