Cute little pub in downtown and had a nice beer the White Shark and Pale Ale. Service was good but there was a table of kids playing a dice game behind us that was unusual

There's really only one thing to say about the burgers here... Omg!! Super fresh, perfectly cooked. You can get just about anything under the sun put on your burger. I tried a cheddar skirt on mine, Omg, delish!!! Will be back, everyday if I could!!

I called to order dinner to go and was told I had to come into the restaurant and order and wait for my food to be cooked. That's ridiculous! I like to order from my office on my way home from work. Boo, hiss, Banshee.

Looking from the outside the Banshee, looks a bit careworn and you could be mistaken for think it may be just another dive bar. Far from it, when you go inside the decor is a bit rustic, but the staff (and customers) were very friendly and the staff efficient. There is a superb selection of beers to sample while waiting...

The food was fantastic, could only stop in for a bit but enjoyed every second of it. Went in with a couple of friends and we were treated as if we'd been there a hundred times before.

Fish Taco at Banchee is one of my favorite foods in Chico. Creamy dressing with kick of spice highlight the fish taco. Draft beer selections are awesome.

Our group of four ate lunch here on Saturday. Cool local's bar, good food, nice beer selection too. We had a Tuna Melt, Burger, and two Pastrami Bombs. The burger was pretty red in the center, so be warned. My wife needs to order her burgers "well done" but always forgets. The tuna melt was good. The Pastrami Bomb was... More

Our son-in-law took us here on a Sunday afternoon, was a great place to eat, drink and watch football. Bloody Mary was good and afforably priced. We had the fish tacos, yummmy, though next time I might try their Mac & Cheese it look wonderful. We had a fun time and met friendly people.

We've been coming here for years and I don't think we've ever had a bad experience. The drinks are strong and reasonably priced, staff is genial and on the ball, and the food is delish. A great cross-section of folks end up here. I've seen people bring in their kids in the afternoons/early evenings, (I've also had someone sit beside... More

My wife and her friends love this place. The drinks are strong and the food is good, can't ask for more on a night out.
