The Square Root is a hidden gem in Brevard. Cozy, a little cramped, but nice atmosphere. Great entrees and appetizers with a good wine selection.

Down an alley way off Main Street. Great atmosphere and very good food. The fried green tomato BLT with goat cheese was awesome. Outside seating is an option in a New Orleans type atmosphere without the noise. Would be a romantic place for dinner.

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.
