St. James Gate is very much an Irish pub, but not in a cheesy kind of way. It’s a good spot to eat some bangers and mash, and it’s perfect for when you want to sit on a barstool and watch sports with a Guinness. The big open room is filled with tables, and the service is about as friendly as we imagine it would be in a neighborhood pub in Ireland.
