Parking and lines - parking a challenge; lineup of ticket purchasers was still "out the door" at 6:20 pm.
Commentary Our experience at St. James was markedly improved over 2008. We had great fish, both fried and baked, but we preferred the fried (don't we always?). Redskins and fries were both very good, and it's nice to have the redskins as an alternative. Fries were nice and HOT. Can I say again, the fried pollock was delicious!!
There was a special "no waiting" table for getting seconds. However, food moves off this table a little more slowly, so it's not quite as hot and crispy as the original. Mac 'n Cheese -- you're not missing anything -- save room for the fish and potatoes.
Highlights unique to St. James:
Roy Schmidt bussing tables
Decor -- Mosaic-style painted crucifix, reminiscent of Orthodox iconic painting
Homemade cookies looked delicious but we had no room after all the good fish.
