Dined here recently while in the area. I had the fish and chips and my wife had the Philly cheesesteak sandwich. Upon entering we were greeted and seated quickly by a very nice young lady. She was very pleasant and courteous and made a few suggestions regarding the different dishes. Our orders arrived promptly and were quite good. I can't... More

I work for Marriott international and do quite a bit of traveling. However, Banks Channel took the icing on the cake with the level of service and quality food that is so so hard to find these days. Our Server Parker went above and beyond and so did the other three staff members who asked if we needed anything. Two... More

My sister organized a night-before get-together for my daughter's wedding and couldn't have picked a better place then Banks Channel! Everyone in our group had flown or driven in that day and were they hungry. It was nice to have everything ready and no decisions to make when we arrived. The appetizers: wings, meatballs, pasta salad, wraps and probably more... More

Stumbled across this restaurant because we just wanted to eat. Menu is mainly pub fair. Nothing to write home about. Staff was not overly helpful or friendly. Sufficient to ease our hunger. Wouldn't make a special trip there.

We went to this restaurant with my elderly mother who needed assistance walking. They sat us near the door so she didn't have to walk very far. It wasn't a crowded restaurant, which made our table choice easy...but to be fair, this is off-season for the area and that is probably why it wasn't busy. They served typical pub food... More

Banks Channel is a nice causal beach bar/restaurant with good food and fairly reasonable prices.Thru the front door is a bar and a more open area with tables that draws a younger crowd while to the right is a smaller diner area that is more family oriented and very comfortable..The Caribbean jerk chicken sliders were great as was the salmon...

Surprised to find the bar fairly empty but it ended up being great. Waitress for very friendly and attentive. Food was good and lots of games to keep the kids occupied while adults eat!

Banks Channel has the best food on the beach! Their menu has options for anyone, from tuna & crab legs to nachos, wings, burgers, and tater tots - their fried chicken zingers are my favorite! Plus they have pool, ping-pong, darts, shuffleboard, air hockey, and fooseball! They have cheap beer and drink specials too...I highly recommend!
