Brewery
Brasserie Saint James is Midtown Reno's only brewery restaurant, located in the historic Crystal Springs Ice House. We are an award winning brewery and give our food the same reverence, offering new life to old world European comfort dishes and American classics. We craft new and old world style ale(s) and lagers using the finest natural ingredients, and we brew our beers using the mineral rich Sierra mountain spring water from our own artesian lake, 285 feet below the building.

So happy that Brasserie has re-opened! Food is excellent and menu has additional items on a regular basis. LOVE the Portobello Mushroom fries, pork and kraut, and Basque style mussels! The new beer selection is fabulous with the Pine Top landing in one of my favorites beers of all time! We enjoy sitting at the bar and interacting with Spencer D as he is one of our favorite bar tenders in Reno! Thanks Brasserie!

We were lucky to snag this last minute reservation for Valentine’s Day! It was the best meal and our server was lovely.

We had a reservation. The hostess was friendly and greeted us right away. When we got there we didn't like the table and asked if we could be moved. They were very nice and did find us another table. The waitress was so upbeat and really took good care of us. We went for brunch and I have been searching in Reno for chicken and waffles that were like the ones I had at a restaurant in Sebastopol, CA (the only difference was at that restaurant they used a honey jalapeno glaze on the chicken and the syrup had it as well) but the chicken here was just as good a great fine crispy outside and moist inside. We really want to go back for dinner.

Was told we had a time at table of an hour and 45 minutes. Arrived early, but she was a little late due to unforeseen circumstances. The staff let us stay way past our time, however. They checked on us a decent amount of time but never pressured us to leave. In fact, I think we were there after closing. We certainly didn’t mean to stay so late and appreciate the staff letting us stay. We both liked the atmosphere, friendliness, service, and of course the food and beer! Next time, we promise to be more aware of the time and not make staff stay past closing. Thank you for everything!

Great to see BSJ back. My wife and I don't drink but if you were in to great beers and cocktails, looks like this place has you covered. We come for the food and service. Both are awesome. We always get the poutine to start and it never disappoints. Love the fish and chips, Argentinian flank steak, pretzel, chicken and waffles, and the fried chicken sammy is pretty darn good. My only complaint was it was dry. Had a little basial aioli on bottom, not enough, and nothing on the top bun. That is my picky but honest opinion and the only thing that is keeping me from awarding 5 stars......but it is close. We will be back often!

Salads (wedge & Caesar) were neither very good. Server forgot our drink and brought it after we had finished dinner without even acknowledging or apologizing. Will try it again, but hoped with the new owners there would be improvements.

The busser we had was incredible and on top of it, the waiter was also amazing. The food was so full of flavor and filling, with enough to eat later. Highly recommend the portobello fries, absolutely delicious.

We only received 5 slices of bread with the crab dip, which costs $18, asked for mor bread and had to be charged additional $2 for the extra bread. The 5 slices isn’t enough for the dish, which was salty. Cost of the food was a little pricey for the end result. Maybe go there for lunch but not dinner.

The beer and impossible burger were amazing. Fries had a rosemary twist and came with a spicy chipotle ketchup that was the bomb. My wife had the chicken sandwich and she absolutely loved it— saying a lot because she’s nearly impossible to please haha. Large portions. Server was great and refilled water about five times. Book early— we were at a high-top and wished we would have been able to sit in a booth. Highly recommend .

GREAT Dinner and beers! We came from the bay area for a one night getaway! (Pretty much to be able to eat dinner out) So happy that this place was were we ended up! The food was outstanding! ORDER THE CRAB DIP!!!! You won't be disappointed! The service was top notch, and everyone was super friendly! The beers were also super yummy! We will most definitely be back asap! I'm also excited to experience the roof top and outdoor patio bar area when it opens up! Such a great building with so many cool things to offer!
