I've been going to this place for the last 5 years. Pros. Good food, people. I like the indoor outdoor seating. They give you a nice plate size of food. This place is usually always busy. Cons. Parking can be difficult. Sometimes there can be Long wait times for your food when it is really busy and it can get... More

Always have good food and service at this restaurant and bar. Mexican food is excellent, even though its not what you'd expect to find here. Other items are very good as well

This place is amazing. It seems like any other bar and grill but they do everything really good. They have a very large micro-brew selection. I recommend anything by Castle Danger. I had the pils and it is tremendous. Tried the Buffalo wings. Wonderful. Then I got adventurous and tried the posole (not sure if that's the correct spelling). It... More

I met a friend of mine and his two kids at this restaurant since it was close to where he was staying. Parking was difficult since there are a lot of businesses in the vicinity. I walked about three blocks or so once I found a spot to park. The restaurant has minimal atmosphere. There is a bar and a... More

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

It is a consistent theme at Washington Square as I have been there many times over the years. Atmosphere is wonderful any time of year. 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. If... More

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
