New Years menu full of choices. Had delicious Crab Stuffed Shrimp with a side of Crab Legs. Husband had prime rib that was thick, juicy and delicious.
I made reservations for 6 people on Friday, December 3, 2021. Our table was ready, our server Lena was awesome, and the numerous appetizers and cocktails we had were perfect. A great time was had by all!
Have tried to like this place but food just isn’t great.
Too bad because atmosphere and staff are good.
Service was exceptional and food was terrific. Highly recommended.
mouth watering food! the service from when we walked in to when we left was amazing! perfect for our date night
One of our favorite places. So much more than just ribs and seafood.
The deep fried Oreos are amazing!!!
We went for my friend’s belated birthday on 10/8/21 and couldn’t have been more pleased. The food was amazing and the service was unbelievably outstanding. Our server treated us like we were his only guests. He offered recommendations and was incredibly attentive. We. Will. Return!
Had my sisters Birthday celebration here it was the best food was great staff was on point
Outstanding service and very good crabcakes. Covid protocols observes well, tables spaced nicely away from each other. Overall a very good experience, would definitely go back.
Special summer salad was awesome! My husband’s steak dinner was incredible
The ribs were not a hit. Otherwise, pretty good
This was my first time. The food is really good and the service was fantastic!! I will definitely go back!!
Food was outstanding and exceptional service! Will definitely be back!
Traveling thru from New Hampshire and have had a lot of bbq thruout the usa and the banc missed the mark on flavor. The baby back ribs were somewhat tender but there was minimal flavor and there wasn't enough bbq sauce. The beef ribs were dry. The deviled eggs were salty and not a lot of egg flavor. The crab didn't add much. The pork spring rolls were very good... the best thing we had.... the crab cake was huge but just OK ... a little lacking in flavor again. Although the aoili added a lot. And the cole slaw was not to our tastes. it was not mayonnaise- based, not sure what it was but neither my husband nor I wanted to eat it. The wait staff was very good but we had a randomly strange location... where the lights went out and we had a speaker over our booth.
Delicious food went with teenagers great menu and perfect ambiance. Will be back.
Went for Father’s Day. Food was good but was hoping to order their regular brunch menu items and they only had the specials. Still overall a nice time.
We got seated right away and orders were taken cared of very nicely. What turned us off is the frequent visits to our table by the server asking if we want to wrap the food. We are all still working on our food but just pausing for a while for a break. After the 3rd or 4th time they approched us in maybe 20 mins time, my friends decided to just have their food packed coz we felt we are being rushed. We checked the restaurant and a looot of empty tables. We ordered coffee and dessert after and we felt that the server isn’t as warm when we first got there. Also, when I made the reservation, I specifically mentioned we are celebrating our friend’s birthday and not even once did our server asked if we are celebrating anything. Overall, the experience felt so rushed that we ended up transferring to another place to have some coffee and dessert. The food is great by the way and I love the Lobster spoons!
Came to town for a concert and needed dinner before with friends with dietary restrictions. They had so many gluten free options and the food was soo great.
Lauren was our server she was excellent and answered all of our 100 questions like a pro. Will definitely come back.
Loved the country music vibe in there too!!
Waiter was awesome! Made great suggestions as this was our first time there. Drink menu is extensive and food was delicious. I had crab cakes - all meat barely any filler - my husband had king crab and my son had the bbq platter. Fun bar area where you can watch sports. Will definitely go back again.
Been coming here for years, and its as good as ever.
Crabs, Oysters, and BBQ...great beers, great bourbons.
Laid back vibe, lots of TVs for sports and country music.
Excellent food, portion size very good. Excellent service!
Worst fries I've ever had. Over cooked; pure oil. Steak was mostly gristle. Very disappointing.
Excellent service all around .. from the hostess to the waitress the food runners and bussers .. well done a pleasure dining there before our show
I had the tuna special. Excellent. cooked perfectly. Everyone else's dinner was good as well. Only complaint was the drinks (bourbon) were a little light. A bigger pour would justify the high prices. Over all though, very good dinner.
First time dining at a high table in the bar area and it was a pleasant experience. Service was great and the food was excellent. My husbands Asian short ribs and my Cajun Chicken Alfredo were both very much enjoyed. The portions were generous and I was even able to take some of my pasta home for a nice lunch. Look forward to returning soon!
Amazing happy hour deals and great service
The food was excellent and servers were very friendly
Great food and good service.
We enjoyed ourselves and the food! Servers were attentive and the drinks were great.
We have been many times to BJ Ryan's and had reasonably good experiences. We came last Sunday to celebrate a concert that my son had performed in. The entrees all came out at different times and my food was cold (Ribs, veggies and fries - not things you can eat cold) so I was disappointed. The bill was a bit pricey considering the mediocre service and lukewarm to cold food and various phases of getting to the table. It was a miss this time.
Haven't been here in a while but brought 8 friends this past weekend and it was just as good as I remember. Great BBQ, huge choice of apps, sandwiches, and seafood. Great beer list and amazing bourbon selection.
Nice vibe and country music. Love this place.
Great meal and wonderful service!
Really fantastic find. The crabs are great and something you normally do not find anywhere in Fairfield Cty. The ribs are better than Bobby Qs! I would highly recommend BJs BandC. The service was exceptional as well
We actually went to the other BJ Ryan's & even though I identified that we had an open table reservation NO ON BOTHERED TO TELL US WE WE IN THE WRONG PLACE. So we ate & got no points (go figure). The following week, we went to the right restaurant and fortunately Stephanie our waitress made our dining experience EXCEPTIONAL. I had the rib combo was was succulent with sauce nearly as good as that which my wife makes; my wife had shrimp & grits which were adequate (not as good as she makes at home).
Best BBQ in ct. Dry ribs were amazing
great menu selection - delicious pulled pork, ribs, and corn bread
Great food. The cornbread is amazing. We also had ribs, fried chicken, and the pulled chicken sandwich. I can't wait to go back!
Everything is great at Banc House! Owners and staff are very friendly and make you feel welcome right away. The food is exceptionally good and the atmosphere is so comfortable that I like to go there a few times a week. My favorite place lately!
The food and service was excellent. Definitely will return. The only change I'd make is to the lighting -- the way the lights are positioned, it makes for a very harsh and uncomfortable shadow on the table.
