St James feels like the typical international Irish Pub with the similar decor, and standard variety of Irish alcoholic beverages plus a few local and regional on tap. Food choices are extensive, catering for all preferences.
I had Fish and Chips on Friday as it was there Friday special. The fish is Alexander Keith's beer battered, however the meal isn't a standout, and probably would not get it unless it was at the Friday Special price. A little oily but had a bit of a crispness to it.
The vibe in the pub was relaxed, semi-professional.
Service was good.
They have some tables outside and a few on the main area of the pub. There is an upstairs loft dining area that is smaller than the main floor.
A decent place to go for an after work unwind, or meal with family/friends/colleagues.

We stopped in for a meal and a couple of libations before a Calgary Flames game. We chose this pub because it is a short walk to the Scotiabank Saddledome. The pub was very busy, so service was sporadic. We had the fish tacos which were good, not great. The beer was cold.

Pretty good food but better drinks! Casual atmosphere great for grabbing a pint after work! Close to downtown.

Stopped in for a pint before attending an event. My husband and I are from Nova Scotia and this little spot reminded us of many pubs in Halifax. We were there during Happy Hour and the tables were filling up fast. We were seated in a booth. As it got busy the staff asked if we'd mind switching to a smaller table but we were getting ready to leave anyway. As a result they took care of a round of beer for us which wasn't necessary but appreciated! The staff is friendly, appetizers were good and beer was cold! We'll definitely be back!

I've been going to St. James for almost 3 years now. The place is an excelent venue for some NHL or NFL games. The staff is really friendly and they pour the best Guinness in Calgary by a mile. Food is laso very good. I would recommend the meatball sub or the Steak sandwich.
