I've been going to St. James for almost 3 years now. The place is an excelent venue for some NHL or NFL games. The staff is really friendly and they pour the best Guinness in Calgary by a mile. Food is laso very good. I would recommend the meatball sub or the Steak sandwich.

Came here for a business lunch the other day. Very cool and relaxed atmosphere, the setting is a traditional pub style. The food is surprisingly tasty, with a solid variety that goes beyond normal pub food. I had the beef dip with soup, very tasty, real cuts of beef with onions and mushrooms. A good variety of beer choices and... More

My friend and I needed a late night bite after a long day of driving and found St. James Corner. Delicious tacos and a great beer selection. We didn't know what to do with ourselves on a Wednesday night in Calgary but this was a fine place to stop. Really friendly staff to us Americans too 😉! Thanks!

St James corner pub has great food and great atmosphere. Very popular spot for dinner and drinks while watching a game. Prices are on the moderate to high side.

I came to Calgary on business staying in an apartment for a few months. Looking around for a place to eat and drink I found the St James pub. On sitting down at the bar, the barman introduced himself and from then on remembered my name and drink. The food is varied, good and reasonably priced. There is a regular... More

Good atmosphere and always a lively buzz. The service was very good - we were a large group. Food wasn't the best I've had but not bad for the price.

Excellent food, we can really recommend the AAA sirloin steak sandwich, it isn't really a sandwich, the steak is on a piece of garlic bread, it was the best steak I've had in a long time. Apparently the Guinness was superb as well!

Thank cooktea
