    We have been to St.James several times and have enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere every time we visited. However, if our experience on Saturday night had been our first than we most likely would not return. The service was poor, had to wait far too long for everything. There was a large dinner group that was so loud that we did not want to stay for desert because of the noise. We will return to St. James since I think that this experience was the exception and not the rule (hopefully).

    This is my new favorite restaurant! I loved the mashed potatoes with blue cheese and brussel sprouts. The meatloaf was good as well. I wished I had more room to eat all of my bread pudding, which was also delicious! Can't wait to come back again.

    We had the fish tacos and the turkey club. The fish was pretty good, which it should be since they serve fish and chips. The accompaniments didn't provide much of a flavor experience, but it was fine. The turkey club is not a standard club, but it was good as well. You don't go to the casino for the food anyway, do you?

    Dined on 8/30/2014
    We were really looking forward to a nice evening dinner, but some of the elements just didn't measure up to our expectations. Let me start with the positive -- the staff was outstanding. Their attitude was gracious and they all definitely aimed to please. Our food was served in a timely manner. Most of the food was good but the french fries were so under par I would never order them again. They were just short of cold, rubbery and tasteless. For a restaurant that supposedly prides itself in it's pub style food I found this very disappointing.

    I've been to Sands in Bethlehem, PA a number of times and always spend a weekend. I've eaten at every place there. I love food! St. James had the best food in that casino. I've eaten at the famous chefs high end restaurant and low end burger place. At that famous NY deli place. Not one matches or comes close to the great food and service of St. James. Just got back to NY today. St. James is the only place I will ever eat at when I'm gambling at Sands. Love it. Everyone visiting Sands Casino should and must eat at this place. You will not be disappointed!

    My fiancé and I decided to try out St. James' Gate for dinner prior to the CFFC Fight at the event center, great choice! Service was prompt and everyone friendly. Food was delicious.. I had ribs, they were perfect, my fiancé had the salmon and loved it. Drinks were good, we are both whiskey drinkers so we had drinks off the menu. Dessert and coffee were amazing! Will definitely be coming back for dinner again.

    The mashed potatoes were quite lumpy and the server did not ask to refill our drinks. Other than those 2 things, the food and the service was very good. (One other thing worth mentioning is that there were young children there who were fussy, which was somewhat distracting).

    We came to see Jeff Dunham and wanted a nice place to enjoy a good dinner after the show before heading home.This place hit the spot. Traditional Irish fare and nice mix of other options that pleased all 5 of us. From the prime rib to the Sheppard' pie and the burger cooked just right we were all satisfied with their generous portions and had just enough room for dessert. Triple chocolate cake and creme brulee were a nice finish taste to good meal.

    I would recommend this restaurant for the food, but I found the service less than desirable. Three of us were there early on a Sunday night. We did have reservations and the restaurant was not very crowded when we arrived. We were seated immediately, but it took our waitress about 5 minutes to acknowledge us and take our drink orders even though she passed us at least twice going and coming from other tables. When she returned with our drinks she took our dinner orders which were very promptly delivered by another server. Our waitress never returned to our table to ask if we needed anything or how our meal was until we asked another server to find her. Again, she had passed our table several times during our meal, but never stopped.

    Thoroughly enjoyed our experience. With reservation, we were seated promptly. Sat next to nice people. My one negative comment would be that the tables are a little close but as long as fellow diners are friendly, not really an issue, but probably hard to have a private conversation. Service and food were good but a bit pricey, but not bad as compared to other casino restaurants.
