About Us

Located in Historic Downtown Tarboro, one of the oldest towns in North Carolina, On the Square's low-key charms haven't faded since its opening, but rather have increased with every weekly menu change. Seasonal, sustainable ingredients are celebrated accordingly throughout the ever-changing menu that ranges from subtle to blunt and is teamed nightly with recommendations from a value-driven eclectic yet classic wine offering. The majority of patrons come from out of town. Those who discover this off-the-beaten-path dining experience are ardent supporters.

If you're coming in from out of town and looking for a place to stay, please click on the link to find a motel, hotel or Air B&B.
