I have been here multiple times in both the summer and the winter. The patio is lovely and the service is excellent. Inside, there is a quaint fireplace which is great in the fall and winter but it is quite noisy which is the only reason I gave it a 4. It is usually pretty busy so plan ahead. We... More

Great burgers in a very pleasant setting. This is a neighborhood landmark that is consistently good. We've had almost everything on the menu and have no complaints. The burgers are outstanding and service is friendly, which can be a little slow because of the crowd, but not unreasonably so. Besides the standard American fare, the Mexican food is very good....

Burgers are awesome as is the rest of the menu. Large variety of beers and cocktales. A couple blocks east of Highway 61, easy to get to, parking in the free public... More

The Washington Square is one of the NE Twin Cities best kept secrets. Cozy and a little bit eclectic, the Grill serves a contemporary American menu, with few surprises, but they do it well. The well stocked bar has most anything the discriminating drinker would crave, including a constantly rotating selection of craft beers, served by bartenders with shirts that... More

I like the fireplaces in the bar and eating areas and the fun food. Drinks were a little too expensive. Food is a better value than drinks.

The service can be a hit or miss there. The food is always great but sometimes doesn't seem worth what you are paying for. they do have great flavored bloodies and an awesome patio.

Good food and efficient service on a crowded Sunday. If weather permits, there is a large seating and eating area outside the restaurant.
