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.

Wilmington Riverfront Park

Wilmington Riverfront Park

Riverfront Park, which encompasses a decent chunk of the popular Downtown Riverwalk, is a scenic region which will lure visitors into pulling up a bench seat, staying a while, and enjoying the miles of Cape Fear River views on the horizon.

Bijou Park

Bijou Park

Bijou Park is a hidden gem of a "blink and you'll miss it" attraction in Wilmington, and is a perfect spot for weary shoppers and strollers to find a quiet bench, stretch out their legs, and relax. Located in a rare gap in between downtown buildings on 225 N Front St, the park straddles the heart of Downtown Wilmington and a Riverfront parking area, but the section in between is quiet, peaceful, and buffered from the sound of the downtown traffic by the two tall but historic buildings on either side.
