Had crab and brisket for dinner and it was delicious. Side dishes were huge - enough for 2 or 3 people. Went back for their happy hour and $1 oysters! Happy hour is every day of the week and you can enjoy it on the outside patio.

This is such a great place to kick back and hoist a few. Line and Billy are always super attentive and real pros. The happy hour can't be beat!! Try the bloody boar. Amazing. The food it top notch, but I come for the homey atmosphere and the great service.

Banc (BBQ an' Crab) House is pretty much what the name says - some good BBQ and shellfish - in the middle of central Norwalk. Tucked off of Wall St, Banc has a pretty wide ranging menu and beer selection suitable for young and old. The wings, nachos and Crabby Pretzels are key staples for the appetizer menu. For mains,...

Our first time at Banc and for its category (casual BBQ), menu and service were distinctly "upscale". Menu is creative seafood with usual BBQ. Crab options rivals Maryland shore. Bourbon list as extensive as any NYC whisky bar. Service pleasant and efficient. We'll be back.

Hi particlebeam, Thank you for such a great review! We look forward to seeing you again soon. Be sure to stop in before Maryland crab season is over and it's always a great idea to call prior to arriving in case we have a supply issue with the live Maryland crabs. Ask for me, I'll stop over to your table... More

We went on a Saturday night and it was crowded but tables were available outside. It was a pleasant low traffic street and a nice location. Our waitress was a pro and truly did her job as I will show. I had a beer and a full rack of baby back ribs with fries and collards. The ribs claimed to... More

It's always a good sign when I am in a state of panic when ordering. It means there are too many great choices for me. This happened twice tonight at dinner, once with my drink and another with my entree. Great beer selection and incredible sounding cocktails. I went with the Hillbilly Tea and was not disappointed. Also had the... More

Like the food. A bit noisy. A bit expensive. But nice if you can get a seat outside in nice weather and they have music on weekends.

The food was fantastic. The service provided by Todd was fabulous. I had the regular ribs - tasty and good.... enough for two meals. My friend had the regular size pulled pork.....ate it all. Corn bread is awesome. Sides are superb. First visit was last week ...loved it so much, we are bringing a friend back this Monday.
