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!

We were there to watch the soccer game because my kids were obsessed. The food was really good surprisingly. I wish there were more tvs since my kids had trouble watching from our table. The arcade games are awesome for the kids though and let's me enjoy my meal. Wings and Zingers were great. Service a bit slow but nice.

Our family walked over for dinner at 8pm. The wait staff was very pleasant. The cucumber martinis were amazing. All the food was delicious and the ambiance was really cool. Location is sort of weird, away from other restaurants, which is too bad because the place was truly wonderful. Highly recommend!

We ate early so as to avoid the crowd on a Friday night. Service and food were good. The restaurant is just over the bridge from the beach so was a quick walk and easy access.

Very casual dining. Go about every Friday night for awesome Martini and apps. Lots of fun games but more adult oriented ping pong, pool, shuffleboard

My family eats here ... a lot. Helps that we're within walking distance. Kids can get burgers. We can get sliders or tuna or whatever dish the chef is serving up that seems too fancy for the place but is always good. This is a neighborhood pub with darts, ping pong tables, shuffleboard, lots of TVs and nice staff. During... More

We moved to Wilmington six years ago and somehow missed Banks Channel until recently. What a shame. Bank's is now our go to place when we want a casual lunch, dinner, or something to snack on with a very cold glass of Dale's Ale which they have on tap. Whether it's brunch food, lunch food, dinner, or snacks, everything has... More
