The St James is a reasonably price restaurant in the small village of Avilla about 10 miles north of Fort Wayne, Indiana. Although they specialize in German food, their best fare is the broasted chicken, sea food platters, and prime rib dinners. The restaurant has...More

Attentive and pleasant service with many breakfast choices. Located in an old historic hotel, we have enjoyed both breakfast and lunch here many times.

5 of us popped in here for lunch while doing an installation down the road. The ambiance of this place was nice, the food good and the service excellent. Next time were in town, we'll definitely be coming here again.

Have been here multiple times and never a bad meal or dessert. Sit in the bar area for atmosphere! The fried chicken is yummy and pies are to die for! Don’t miss it!

While Avilla, Indiana (pronounced Ah-villa) is not necessarily a destination, the St. James Restaurant could well be. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the meal was wonderful. I had broasted chicken which was tender and juicy...done but not overdone. The coleslaw was delicious too....More

Several of us had their heralded broasted chicken and fried potatoes with onions. The chicken was of a very small variety, closer to Squab than full sized yard bird. The potatos weren't fried with a crispness we had come to expect instead they were rather...More
