This restaurant is permanently closed.

An old Victorian house in Durham, North Carolina has been home to Four Square restaurant for over 15 years. With tables located throughout the many rooms, the large eatery feels spacious yet intimate. The staff at Four Square is attentive, friendly and knowledgeable striving to provide the best service to every patron who visits.

The rotating menu at Four Square features innovative dishes created from fresh, local ingredients. Appetizers include such options as corn and crab chowder or duck eggs. Wild boar lasagna, pecan crusted scallops on a fried green tomato and seared tuna on kimchi rice. Dessert is the real star of the show here. The signature ice cream sandwich is always a popular choice.

Our smallest private room seats 8 to 10 guests at a large round table, perfect for board meetings or small family gatherings.

For larger parties, the second floor can accommodate as many as 75 and the entire restaurant may be reserved for up to 125 for a seated dinner. If used as a stand-up cocktail/reception the restaurant can accommodate 200. Please call the restaurant directly to book private parties.

We have loved every meal we ever had at Four Square. I really wish that they were not closing but owning a restaurant, I'm sure, is a very hard business and especially hard on a family.

We are sad to see this place close. We frequented it since me moved here nearly 16 years ago.

We went to Four Square after a several year hiatus because we read that it was closing and we had always had great experiences in the past (hiatus was not related to any dissatisfaction with Four Square). Once again the food and service were great. We will miss Four Square and we wish them all well.

A wonderful restaurant that we will greatly miss! (They're closing for good on June 25, 2016) Our meal was superb, as our many meals have been at 4 Squre over the years, in all regards. The Triangle is losing a rare gem.

Foursquare is closing on 25 June. We have enjoyed it for 16 years. Our last meal there was fabulous; this place continues to fire on all cylinders. We will be back one more time before it closes. We wish Shane and Elizabeth the best.
