Food is always good at Washington Square. Sitting outside on patio or by one of the fireplaces indoors, great ambiance.

Smelled of wood burning fire when we walked in; great on a Winter's night. Great patio in Spr/Summer/Fall. Food is very good; Nice menu variety and prices are average for this type of restaurant.

Best burger in town. Their burritos are also delish and more authentic than most places. Fun patio in summer.

Enjoyed the outdoor patio dining. The bar service was friendly, and the drinks were nicely prepared. The food was not great, but a pleasant dining experience. Liked the casual laid back vibe. Great place to watch White Bear Lake MN pass you by.....

We walked in with a party of 10 and got a table straight away. Good menu with plenty of choice. They have an excellent range of beers on tap and in bottles from various small breweries. The food was good with generous portions.

It is my pet peeve to have a midsize bar that serves lots of beer with a one stall bathroom. Why don't you make them unisex and increase the odds. Okay back to the food . I had the spicy pulled pork sandwich. It wasn't really spicy - unusual , but I liked it! Not what I was expecting at... More

A nice variety of choices. I had a burger last visit but have had some very good salads in the past.

The food is pretty good. We stayed simple. I got the Diablo burger and my wife got the taco salad. My burger was pretty good but the fry's were pretty plain. Same with the taco Salas. Adequate. Where this place shines is the beer. Lots of variety on tap. Would come here just for the beer even if it is... More

A great bar with friendly locals and great staff and management. Great food and the beer selection is good. The wine selection is limited, but they do have cocktails. Dog-friendly on the patio and very close to many downtown White Bear amenities.

Great number of choices and all cooked to perfection. Classic dishes to house specialties, to Mexican. Bloody Marys are the best in Minnesota.
