Description: 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.

“Great Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Visited St James Gate, or the Gate as locals call it for the first time in a long time this past weekend. Food was really great. Had the Beef Barley Soup to begin with, REALLY GOOD. And then fish and chips. The chips were undercooked, but I was too full to care. Fish was really well done, crispy but not too greasy.

My only critism, Great Big Sea music in an irish pub? No!! Haha

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

We absolutely devoured the Poutine with Asiago cheese, lamb, and red wine demi. The portions were ample and we all took portions of our meal back with us. Service was lovely, atmosphere authentic, and the food superb.

“Great food, great beer selection, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

The title says it all...we went there twice in our weekend stay. The food really is amazing and there is a decent selection of beers on tap. Our service was great both times, as well.
