I have eaten at this restaurant many times- mostly in the summer on their nice patio. Lately , during the winter months, I have gone inside and enjoyed a delicious breakfast and lunch. Located right in quaint downtown White Bear Lake, this is definitely a place to visit!

Nice atmosphere. Plenty of space to accommodate larger groups. Lots of seating at the bar and patio. Wood burning fire place is plus on chilly days. Great selection of salads and sandwiches. Turkey Cobbie was tasty but a little dry. The Chef Salad is really good. No one had a burger in the group, but those looked good too. Lots... More

I had the Jack Daniels burger and loved the taste of the meat. Black Angus smothered in mushrooms and swiss cheese and sauteed onions with their own Jack Daniels sauce.

This place is overall a nice bar/restaurant for White Bear. They have a wood burning fireplace you can sit by which is awesome in winter. They have lots of outdoor seating too. I like that they change up the tap beer selections. I think they have a nice variety. If I had any complaints, I believe the Mexican food is... More

Beginning with a great menu, Washington Square is a great place for family, business, and larger gatherings. I am always pleased with the varied tap beer menu and the different dining areas provide suitable spaces for your dinner or party. The style is industrial/beam/glass with two fireplaces and a neat bar area with large booth areas. Outdoor dining in the... More

Tried the burger since we saw the awards hanging on the wall when we entered. Birger was juicy and tasty. Only disappointment was that the fries weren't homemade.Have a good selection of craft brews.

This is a cool place, but that aside the food is average at best. This was our second go at it. Althea staff is excellent and in the ball for sure. Our bar tender this time wasn't so sure of the beer menu. I'd ask a question and he'd say I'm not sure. The food was disappointing for sure. I... More
