Good burger. A little pricing for beer and burger but very good. Bill for two beers each for two guys with one food order with tip was almost $55. A little steep for someone from Wisconsin.

Can't go back....Nothing much offered for vegetarians. Limited lager selection. Ample ale choices. Staff pleasant.

This was a pretty good bar but the food was just ok. U had the pretzel with cheese but it was pretty bland. The fish and chips was a very large portion but the batter was over cooked. Drinks were good though.

St. James Gate has great beers on tap. It is a great Irish pub with a great Irish menu to compliment the beers. My granddaughter loves the French fries. And the mussels are great!
