“Great place”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

My husband and I go there quite often.. Food is hot and fresh, service is great and also good choice of beer on tap.
We make reservations when we want to go. The seating is limited.

“Best Fish and Chips I have had In Canada. No Joke.”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Best Fish and Chips I have had In Canada. No Joke.

I love Fish and Chips, but usually I eat it and I get a stomach ache from the grease. I heard about this place and a friend dragged me out there.

WOWOWOWOW I wasn't disappointed and I have been sharing the love ever since! I have been there about 5 times and will be going many many more...

“A little piece of Ireland...”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Truly one of the gems of Carleton place, St James has a warm, sentimental Irish decor. The fish and chips are the best you'll find anywhere. We've been there many times and they are always consistently good. The staff are very friendly and they have a quaint patio on the streetfront which is a great place to enjoy a meal or a drink with friends. The prices are typical of any pub and the food potions are ample. Erin gu brath!!

“Good pub”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

We have visited this pub many times and always find the food to be very good. This time we had fish & chips. The food is served hot and fresh. The atmosphere is very good and always busy. The restaurant is very clean and the service is quick and friendly. The menu is too varied though, ranging from Irish Stew, pasta selections to Indian curry. I would prefer that they specialize in one or the other. Perhaps they should offer pub fare only at St James Gate and open another restaurant specializing in ethnic fare, which is needed here in Carleton Place. food but
