It had been a couple of years since I stopped in to this quaint Irish pub just off of Banff Avenue, so I decided to have dinner there this evening. When I entered there were 3 employees at the front and they seemed to think their conversation was more important than a paying customer. I was finally seated at a... More

Went to this restaurant today because I was craving fish and chips. Had to be one of the best fish and chips I've ever had, even when I was in England! We both enjoyed the fish and chips and our waitress was friendly, outgoing and helpful. Looking forward to one more trip there for their mac and cheese! Will let... More

Food was good, cozy atmosphere, and great service. The salad I ordered was huge and my husband enjoyed the fish and chips he got. Price was average in Banff, but we took advantage of the nightly specials so it was cheap!

We visited on St. Patrick Day, very busy, and we had fun. We waited 2 hours for a table then found out the girl seating people had gone home. Once we got a table we got good food. We were disappointed that they had no Irish band playing. They had a country western band. : (

Our Story Begins in Ireland Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, St. James's Gate, established in 1996, was built and manufactured in Dublin, Ireland. The authenticity of the imported Irish woodwork and fantastic artifacts make St. James Gate one of the premier Irish Pubs in the world. The Gate has a warm friendly atmosphere that makes you feel instantly at home. Rub shoulders with local residents and tourists from around the world. The bartenders are friendly and prepare the drinks with care and consideration and the staff proves just what a capable & fun group of servers is worth. It's everything an Irish Pub should be.
