Wow, what a great meal at a great price. We highly recommend this restaurant. Friendly staff, great food. You can’t miss. Two of us had Banks Benedict which is a crab meat Eggs Benedict and it was outstanding, while the third had a Bacon egg...and cheese sandwich on sourdough and it had great flavor.More

What an awesome place to eat and reasonably priced! We visit Wrightsville Beach annually. Banks Channel is now added to our “must eat there” place! I had the B.L.T.A. and it was amazing. Hubby had the burger special. He said it tasted like it was...grilled outside. Our waitress was beyond amazing!More

This seems like a friendly neighborhood bar and grill. The service was good, and both the steamed shrimp and the fish and chips were delicious. There are TVs and high top tables inside and it is very noisy. Next time I would choose to eat...outside for the ambiance and the quiet.More

Banks Channel has become a regular stop on vacation and with 4 kids this year 5 and under, the room they have off to the right as you walk in is perfect. They also have a seperate game room for kids too. Service was good...and the waitress were patient getting the kids orders out quickly. My wife liked here catch of the day tacos, that happened to be snapper. I took a chance on the BLTA, which was bacon,mixed greens,fried green tomatoes,avocado,and pimento cheese in a soft pita wrap, that was very good. They have daily beer specials and that days was $2 Coors Light bottles. In the main area they have a nice comfortable bar with a beach feel, music on the weekends and a outside dining area. Look forward to a return trip.More

We have a condo near Banks Channel Pub but haven't taken the short walk across the bridge from our place for several years. We decided to branch out from our usuals and we were not disappointed. Great service, thin beer battering on a generous portion...of fried flounder with a nice thin dill tartar sauce, average fries, interesting mainly carrot based slaw with pineapple, all quite tasty. My wife had the special snapper wrap and it was delicious as well. We will definitely be back soon.More

My wife, two kids and I stopped in at Banks Channel Pub on a recent trip to the area. It was a casual restaurant/pub that had the Duke game on for many of it's patrons. It seemed like a frequent spot to watch the Blue...Devils. Not sure if it was a game special, but they had $2 Bud and Bud Light bottles at the time. Sweet deal that you'd frequently find in our home state of Wisconsin. I opted for the Seafood Boil to get a sampling of Shrimp, Crab Legs potatoes and corn on the cob. Corn wasn't as firm as I had hoped, but flavors of everything were very good. My wife had the French Onion soup and a salad, to which she added some fried shrimp. Soup was excellent, despite having to ask it to be heated up once. The server was very accommodating, and got a fresh bowl, that was plenty hot. The crispy shrimp was definitely the way to go. Kids had Mini corn dogs, and mini cheeseburger sliders. Food was very good, and our server was great! If we return to the area, I would certainly return.More
