(2 out of 4 Fishes)
Wayfinding was poor and there wasn't even a menu at the start of the line. We went early, but the line wasn't set up very efficiently. Take-out and dine-in was the same line. Cashier at the end.
Wayfinding is not the strong suit at St. James. Really no signs leading you to the cafeteria. Line moved fairly quickly, only about a 10 minute wait. You get your food and then pay after. A few more menus than last time we visited. Better on greening. You get a school cafeteria tray, so they are cutting down on styrofoam! No visible recycling however.
Cod breading didn't have much kick. Sides were OK. Desserts, however, were varied and homemade. White and red manicotti was very good. Highlight was probaly the manicotti.
Cod was much better than we remembered. Cod was fried nicely. Breading didn't have much spice, but overall, Cod was nicely done. Highlight is still the red and white pasta side choices. Other sides were OK. Nothing really stood out, but they were done well.
Great value! $7 for large cod, dessert, tea or lemonade -everything included! $2 beer.
Still a great value and deservedly makes our top value list. For our family of five, only $28. Includes dessert and drinks (tea or lemonade). Prices have risen some since 2007, $8.50 for adult dinner (includes two sides). Senior dinner $7.50. Kids fish dinner is $6.00. Other kids options include grilled cheese $2 and cheese pizza $1.50. Beer $2, Soda $1.
Small cafeteria kept crowd from feeling small. Piped in classic rock was a little out-of place (this may have been because 96.1 had broadcast from there). Everyone was very friendly.
Good buzz of conversation. Small cafeteria feels a little dark, but friendly volunteers lighten the whole room.
3 out of 4. Good solid fish fry even though Cod was disappointing. Great value and manicotti was a highlight. Although wayfinding wasn't that great, it was just me and the kids, we were able to get our order and eat easily.
A great neighborhood fish fry. I was probably too harsh on the Cod on our previous review. Good Cod and overall a good solid fish fry. St. James has Ash Wednesday and Good Friday fish fries, so if you are looking for a good fish fry on those dates, check them out.
