St. James was good many yrs ago, then they changed chef and the menu.Not for the better. So we stayed away. Now we tried it again after our hike. And it went from bad to worse, we had 2 pcs of fish, at $16.99 and a terrible chicken pie at $16.99 not cheap for a lunch. Fish batter very greasy,... More

Used to be good, what happened!? What is still billed on the menu as "Irish soda bread scone" is now a plain English muffin, and what used to be real potatoes are now frozen powdered mush. What a disappointing decline for what used to be a reliable neighbourhood spot. If you're looking for real food and honest ingredient labeling, go... More

We had not been there a while and dropped by and surprised to see the place very empty. Now we know why. The Beef Dip had more bread than anything, The Chicken Pot Pie was tasty but very dry. The Green Eggs were good. Service was acceptable.

Haven't been to the well for a couple of years. We went tonight and we were really disappointed in the yorkies. They were always my favorite. No longer is it served with aujus . It's now served with a heavy gravy. They do seem to put more beef I'm it but not enough of the horseradish sauce that goes on... More

I've been patronizing this Irish-themed pub since it opened. Service and food are consistently good, with a good choice of ales and dishes. Average price point. Can be noisy when full, especially in the evenings. Recommended.

I've written about The St. James Well before and as many have said, the selection of beers and the food are both great, but now there is another reason to hit The Well. They have what must be one of the best selections of quality BC wines you'll find anywhere in the Tri-Cities. Where else will you find 50th Parallel,... More

Well what can I say, the staff at St. James Well Pub are a class act for sure. From the planning stages of the party to the attention to detail and attentiveness to the groups needs during the party, the waitresses and Rylie we're always there for us.
