Success! Thanks for posting your review of J J Banko's Seafood. You’ve done the world some good today.


Used to go there a lot. Now overpriced and overrated. Rude. Owner(s) need to come off the high-horse. Ordered "Maryland Crab Cakes" I lived on Easter Shore for years. Delmarva. Fished, Crabbed. Cooked my own seafood. These were fish patties or some other imitation crab breading or stuffing pre-mix with just a hint of bike exhaust smoke flavoring. I at least expected an attempt. It's like they didn't even try. I felt... view more

My friend Rudy his wife and another couple just ate there this week and had only good to say. We are going today to see how it is ourselves today,and since Rudy raved how much he enjoyed it I'd say it probably is pretty good.

We have been going to Banko's for awhile. The wait to get in (usually at least a half hour if you're lucky - sometimes more, depending on the day, yes even weekdays) can be a nuisance, but we over looked it. The service has always been horribly slow. It takes forever to get waited on. Good luck trying to get refills or anything else. (They need to hire waitresses who know what they're doing, not just for their looks.... view more

Editorial review from Citysearch

This is my favorite seafood restaurant in NEPA! Huge portions! Friendly staff, it gets really busy but it doesn't take that long and... if you want to be in and out you need to get there early! Love there fresh seafood and Iam NEVER disappointed!!! If you ""FINE"" dining you need to go somewhere else, this is a relaxing cool little place with WONDERFUL food...!

Was told this was "the" seafood place. Specializes in breaded and fried fish. Long John's is better. Slow service especially in the bar. Crowded, noisy. Won't be going back soon.

Surprisingly good...

Great food and service. Read other reviews where people said they waited long for food, this was NOT the case with us. We had a large party (8 people), and our food came out fast and hot. Nice decor, just the band in the bar was a bit too loud. Food was great

HORRIBLE service horrible food

My mother and I had gone to check out the seafood. The waitress took our order. We waited 10 minutes for our drink to come to the table and 50 minutes after that for our food to come. When the food finally came the clams were so unbelievably covered with sand it was disgusting we could not eat them. Trying to get the waitress to explain this to her was like trying to find a needle in a haystack. When we finally did f... view more

Just a bar that serves seafood

Terrible service. They cater to the bar crowd, but have added a ""seafood restaurant"" of sorts next to it. Absolute dump. Don't take your family there. Rude clueless waitresses, hostess who couldn't care less. Very unprofessional. They need some grownups on the restaurant side.
