St. James Restaurant

Food & Beverage-Government Agencies & Services-Restaurants

The St. James Restaurant has been a local favourite for many years, but Jerry and Jessie Huang have owned it for the past 10. They are proud of their reputation for great tasting Chinese and Canadian cuisine, including their famous milkshakes, chicken wings, and chef’s specials. Another thing the diner is famous for is their gravy, a recipe that was used by the original owners and one that the Huang’s continue to serve. Jerry can tell you that some customers can’t get enough of it. “People come from all over for our gravy and chicken wings,” he says. “I met one gentleman who was raised in the Fort and moved to Vancouver. He came back 20 years later to see if he could still get the gravy!”

Meet Jerry & Jessie Huang

Jerry and Jessie Huang love meeting new people and the friendly regulars they serve at the St. James Restaurant. "People from the town are very nice, welcoming and supportive," says Jerry. "It makes it easy to run a business." The regulars who keep coming back are recognized by their servers who remember what their favourite orders. That's the type of service you can expect from the Huang’s and their staff. The couple enjoys supporting local organizations in the community such as Ducks Unlimited, the high school yearbook committee, and charities such as ChildFind.
