Short Story: The bar at the Port is an antique acquired from an 1860's speakeasy. All of the bar stools, chairs, and couches at Jimmy's are made from leather from the S.B. Foot Tannery, owned by Red Wing Shoe Company.


A New Look

The Patio renovation in Spring 2019 was the beginning of a five-year plan to bring the St. James to new heights. Starting in December 2019, The Veranda Restaurant will undergo major renovations to follow the patio’s look of modern sophistication and class. The restaurant will be closed starting December 2, 2019 to begin the project. Breakfast and lunch will be available and served in The Port Restaurant until Spring 2020, seven days a week.
