  • BJ Ryans's Banc House
    BJ Ryans's Banc House (BBQ and Crab) satiates cravings for both fresh coastal catches and savory wood-smoked meats that exude Southern charm. The slow-smoked pulled pork calls to taste buds from the plate where it sits slathered in homemade sauce and dry rub, and savory shrimp and grits blend dry rub and cheddar flavors. The talented chefs pay a special tribute to fresh crab, which can be added to any entree, steaming dishes such as the Banc crab cake, dungeness, Alaskan king, or blue crabs, which come dressed in homemade roasted-garlic sauce, ginger caramel, or inner-harbor spice. Not to be overshadowed by the succulent food, BJ Ryan's dark, varnished wood and black-lacquered furnishings effuse a low-key, yet carefully kept dining environment marked by old photos and broad chalkboards listing the day’s specials.

  • Bar Q
    When fresh cuts of St. Louis–cut ribs, pork shoulder, or beef brisket arrive at Bar Q, they go straight to the award-winning pit team. Chips of locally harvested red and white oak send off smoke from the pit below as the team cooks these meats for hours at a time. Once everything is ready, they plate juicy portions of sticky ribs or pulled pork alongside homemade fixings such as braised collared greens and cheesy grits cakes. As Bar Q’s name implies, there’s more to the restaurant than lip-smacking barbecue fare. Bartenders craft Southern-style cocktails and pour 26 draft microbrews to complement the hearty meals. And the menu isn’t Bar Q's only repository of Southern charm. Plank wood lines the two-level interior from floor to ceiling, serving as a rustic backdrop to farmland photos and cowhides. Live DJs spin tunes throughout the week, coating their turntable belts in barbecue sauce to keep them running smoothly until 2 a.m. on weekends.

  • Sails American Grill
    Sails American Grill takes its name from its harborside location—it's adjacent to the Five Mile River Harbor—which also explains its extensive seafood menu. Here, everything from oysters on the half shell and tuna tartare to wild salmon and Arctic char find their way onto plates and can be paired with starters such as the roasted-beet salad. Patricia Brooks of the New York Times calls that "the most irresistible of several tempting salads," and describes its contents of beets, arugula, mache, goat cheese, and candied pecans as a "medley of delectable contrasts." Diners can attend Sails' Wine Lovers Night to try new bottles, and once they've found a favorite, they can select from the extensive red and white wine lists to complement meals or toast musicians playing each Thursday and Friday.
