The St. James Hotel is the ideal location for all your holiday entertaining, whether it is with family, friends or special clients.

Private Dining for Holiday Parties
For the perfect holiday party, the St. James offers elegantly appointed private dining facilities for gatherings of 10 to 250 guests. Menus are prepared by our Executive Chef, and our seasonal creations are always a cause to celebrate.
Tucked away on the lower level of the St. James Hotel, the Port Restaurant will elevate your dining experience. The cuisine is rooted on the seasons of the Midwest and inspired by global influences. Skillfully prepared dishes reflect the bounty of local small producers, as well as some of the finest produce found throughout the United States. Enjoy this cultured environment with a bottle of wine from our Wine Spectator Award winning selection or taste your way through our small batch scotch collection.
Dine in style for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the Veranda. Panoramic views of the Mississippi River set the scene for a truly unique dining experience with both indoor and outdoor seating. A globe-hopping menu includes recreated breakfast favorites, coastal Californian cuisine, Mediterranean-fusion appetizers, and indulgent desserts. Try one of our famous Art Deco cocktails, or one of our many “mocktails” for those with a lighter agenda.
Experience an authentic British lounge with a night at Jimmy’s Pub. Ales, wine, and spirits await you behind a handsome mahogany bar accompanied by a fresh menu of dinner essentials. For a lavish evening escape with an ‘across-the-pond’ feel, visit Jimmy’s Pub on the top floor.
