The multifarious [menu](http://www.bjryansbanchouse.com/?p=menu) at BJ Ryan's combines fresh coastal catches with savory wood-smoked meats. Like an aquarium filled with William Faulkner’s bibliography, the bill of fare unites southern classics with the bounty of the sea, dazzling taste buds with slow-smoked pulled pork slathered in house-made sauce and dry rub ($16.95) or buttery lobster rolls featuring lobster perched atop a warm brioche roll or mixed cold with crunchy vegetables ($21.95). The talented chefs pay a special tribute to fresh crab, steaming dishes such as the BANC crab cake ($22.95) or garlic dungeness crabs ($29.95) or dressing them in house-made roasted-garlic sauce, ginger caramel, or a spinning bowtie of inner-harbor spice. BJ Ryan's dark, varnished wood and black-lacquered furnishings effuse a low-key, yet carefully kempt dining environment marked by old photos and broad chalkboards listing the day’s edible options. Guests can gather indoors amid tables clad in cloth and butcher paper to chow down on mouthwatering crabmeat or dine al fresco on patio seating while using barbecue-scented air kisses to beguile passersby.
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.
