Food well presented and was cooked to order, the waiting staff was Jonny on the ball when it came to a refill or additional needs. Small portions but the food was very good and well prepared. This is mid to high price depending on your choice of food.

The patio is great in the Summer. I had dinner at an event and it was delicious. I will have to go back and try ordering off their dinner menu but I was very satisfied.

The James restaurant is associated with the Holiday Inn Express Hotel downtown. It was one of only a few open for dinner on Sunday night. The menu was varied and the atmosphere was pleasant. Relatively quiet if you are part of a group and wish to converse.

Food was great. Best calamari I've had. Burgers are very good. I would suggest sitting at the bar. Tim kept the drinks flowing. He was friendly and extremely fun and entertaining. We will be back.

Jut stopped for drinks on the patio. What a nice surprise out doors. Nice atmosphere with a fireplace and festoon lighting. Had a bar and outdoor tables and chairs. Relaxing.
