The Banks Channel Pub & Grille is a casual stop on the eastern edge of the Wrightsville Beach Causeway that’s perfect for visitors who want to settle in, watch a game, and / or feast on a host of pub-style beach fare. The hearty menu is a dream for big appetites, and with a wide range of drinks and drink specials, and late-night hours of operation, this local hot spot will be a popular hang-out for Wrightsville Beach night owls.

Banks Channel Pub & Grille features a dinner, brunch, and late night menu which all feature their own line-up of temptations. For brunch, patrons can cure a handover with big plates of Belgian waffles or pancakes, or more unique fare like a “Waffle Clubber” which features eggs, cheese, bacon and ham on a fresh waffle bun. For dinner, diners can enjoy big plates of steamed seafood, a range of sandwiches, and entrees like fish and chips or grilled chicken mac and cheese, while late-night bar patrons can order up a burger or sandwich, or a classic pub appetizer like nachos, cheese fries, and Buffalo wings. Filling and a little decadent, the Banks Channel Pub & Grille is where cold drinks and filling food happily combine.

Wrightsville Beach Park

Wrightsville Beach Park

The sunny Wrightsville Beach Park, conveniently located in the heart of town, is a fantastic destination for an outdoor adventure that doesn't necessarily entail a trip to the beach. Adjacent to the Wrightsville Beach Parks & Recreation's main facilities, the Wrightsville Beach Arboretum, and plenty of wide open green spaces, this park is a perfect spot for enjoying a little free fun in the sun, without the risk of getting sand in the shoes.
