Washington Square is great for a casual, comfortable, reasonably-priced night out with friends or family. I love their salads! Service has always been good, and their outdoor patio is awesome in the summer.

Designed by an architect in pleasant, modern style. Food very good, range of food: light, comfort food, very good desserts. Wide range of drinks at reasonable prices. Friendly young staff. Lot of local folk who enjoy casual dining at reasonable prices. A favorite of ours for several years. A bit crowded on weekends or special occasions, with relatively short wait... More

You can't beat the atmosphere, inside or outside! Great food. We usually go there for breakfast. In the winter it is so comforting to go in and there is a real fire going in the fireplace and the summer patio is beautiful! I have to agree with another post that when they are really busy, it can take a while... More

This is a small restaurant on a corner in the city of White Bear Lake. It is a great little place to stop during the day or night! If you eat outside, you can bring your dog! They even give you a dish of water for your favorite pet! The food is good and they give you healthy portions! They... More

The food is excellent for breakfast, lunch and dinner and the patio is always a joy to sit on, but the service can be subpar. The servers rarely check on you and almost never offer to refill your water. I don't know if they are simply too busy but it makes the overall experience less enjoyable.

Have been to Washington Square several times over the years. My favorite is their breakfast, but they are great for a visit for lunch / dinner as well. If you like unique beers and pretty good bloody mary's, this is the place for you. It can tend to get busy and they seat first come first serve, so arrive early.... More

We visit WS once a month or so and we've never left disappointed. The happy hour small plates at $4 are a good deal, we get a few of those and we get a couple glasses of wine each, and with a friendly tip get out for under $50. The service is good, the atmosphere is good, it's a nice... More

I love this place. Fun atmosphere, great bartenders and wait staff. Prices a bit high but what isn't nowadays. Food is delicious. Great happy hour... Outdoor patio is fun and comfortable.
