“Love this place!”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

Went here on numerous occasions while in St. Cloud on business last fall. This is a really neat place in downtown St. Cloud. Beer selection is great and the proprietor is generally the bartender. He's a little cooky but he's great!

The food is priced right and has the flare that St. Cloud is definitely missing. There are dishes from all over the world.

One of the best steak's I've ever had to date was here. The Ragu Steak. It was GREAT.

Service can be spotty but hell, it IS a bar.

I'd go back any day!

Reviewed February 22, 2012

Variety of daily specials with unique flavors. Diamond in the rough surrounded by downtown bars.

“Ecclectic menu, good food, four star service.”
Reviewed September 17, 2011

I've been to the White Horse probably 4-5 times. The food is high quality and not your usual boring burger or chicken. They have a nice selection of vegetarian items.

My experience is pretty hit-or-miss with the White Horse. The quality is always good, but I find their menu rather limited. I'll be the first to admit that I'm a pretty finicky eater, so about 80% of their menu I wouldn't care for (i.e. steaks, burgers, pork, etc.). The down side to their menu (for me) is that many of their foods are just too spicy for my taste. They feature a lot of Thai or other Eastern foods-- normally I love these kinds of things, but the spiciness at the White Horse is too overpowering for me.

I usually go with my SO who really enjoys this place (see IggyPlanetBoy's comment). He enjoys their vast selection of beers, and has enjoyed his meal every single time.

Downside for me is the noise level. Also is hit-or-miss. Some nights it's dead, and you can sit and have a quiet conversation over dinner. Other times it's packed, and I have to shout to be heard. As mentioned in Iggy's comment, when the bartenders throw bottles around, the noise is piercing. I don't want to try to enjoy a meal and end up with a headache.

All in all, it's a great restaurant. Even though it's not my fave in St Cloud, I would highly recommend it. Go to their website, check out their menu, and see for yourself. The quality is outstanding and service is always top-notch.

“Great food in Downtown St Cloud”
Reviewed August 29, 2011

Food is great! Almost gourmet. Staff is friendly and service is fast. There's a wonderful selection of micro-brews.

A negative is the noise level. If there's a lot of people in there, it's hard to talk. Also, when the bartenders throw bottles in in a container, the sound is extremely grating, and irritating,

If you don't mind these things, it's a great place to eat though.

“The best food in Saint Cloud”
Reviewed July 29, 2011

This is definitely the best place to eat in St. Cloud. If you look at it from the outside, you may not want to go in. It looks like a dive, and kind of is, but awesome food. They have a great menu with a couple of daily specials that are awesome. They also make their own soups and have couple on the menu daily. The service is always excellent, the staff is friendly.
