The White Horse opened in downtown St. Cloud in March 26, 2008. Owner Brian Lee believed the area was full of too many corporate chain restaurants, so he implemented a business model of a scratch-kitchen, manned with unique and talented chefs in a downtown location. The White Horse built a successful lunch and dinner crowd ranging from SCSU professors, lawyers and doctors to undergrads and the creative culture of the downtown area.
Built upon the foundation of the original bar constructed in 1907, the building has housed The Sportsman, Geez, Mike Morris’ Superstars and upon investigating the original bar’s history, Brian Lee was told by some of the locals that the original name of the place was “The White Horse” which is the origin of the name. Turns out the original name was “The White Bear”. We think you’ll agree, “The White Horse” sounds much better.
On behalf of owner Brian Lee, General Manager Kris Copa and Head Chef Tommy Lee, we welcome you to The White Horse. The Downtown establishment that drinks like a bar and eats like a restaurant.
