THE BEST SHRIMP AND GRITS

We love this restaurant! I can say Ive tried ALOT of food here (even their specials) and have never been disappointed, but the shrimp and grits is to die for!!! The chicken zingers are my second fav (when I'm not in the mood for a whole entree). I get em with the "rock chalk" sauce. They always... read more

My wife, sister in-law, and I ate here this weekend for the first time. The atmosphere was real nice and the service was very good. We all liked our meals except that the Hamburger tasted more like Meatloaf (with breadcrumb fillers) than a pure meat burger.Not bad, just could have been a little better. Otherwise all was very good.

We eat here every Saturday or Sunday morning. I noticed the tripadvisor sign in the restaurant yesterday and realized we love this place and I had never written a review. I have pancakes and my husband has eggs, etc. The people are wonderful and the food is great. We don't eat out a lot at night, but when we do,... More

Once again, I'm impressed! I had the buffalo chicken flatbread and it was absolutely delicious! Too big for me to eat by myself, but my friends were happy to help! Everything that I've tried here has been really tasty & the staff is very welcoming!

We went for breakfast/brunch after church one Sunday. My children were thrilled with the free games that were available to play while we waited, namely the shuffleboard table. :) Our table had the breakfast bowl, breakfast muffin, breakfast quesadilla, and pancakes from the adult menu, as well as a grilled cheese from the children's menu. Everything was yummy and filling.... More

My friends and I are always looking for delicious food for a reasonable price. Banks Channel came highly recommended by some friends who frequent there. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and service at Banks and it had such a laid back pub feel! I had the Sesame Tuna appetizer and the Pear and Goat Cheese flatbread.... More

I thought it'd be a middle of the road restaurant. It was a loud just ok sports bar. Food was terrible. Server recommended fish and chips the batter was so thick I could hollow out the small amount of fish. It came with skinny french fries that were actually very good. I would only go there to have a beer... More

Great atmosphere, pool tables, foozball, darts, etc. Fun beer signs on the walls. Casual, very clean. Hubby and J both had the fish and chips, which were delicious. The chips are actually home style fries which were probably some of the best fries I have ever had in my life. I had an island punch to drink and loved it.... More

We enjoyed the food and games at Banks Channel Pub and Grille. We had a good dinner with good service. Our seafood dishes were fresh, tasty and well prepared. They also have a good selection of draft beers and mixed drinks. While waiting for our meals to come after ordering, my teenage daughters and I enjoyed playing ping pong and... More

First of all, they do emulate a Pub, with darts, games, and weekly trivia contests. All very British in origin. Fun atmosphere. Food is seafood based (not pub) and they offer a good variety of appetizers and main courses. Skip the mac and cheese and pizza stuff as you are on the beach! Enjoy the seafood dishes Some caution, however,... More
