    Not only is the food wonderful but we had incredible service. Alyssa,our server, was attentive and so pleasant. She never hovered but always touched base to see what we needed. She is doing an outstanding job and contributed to our dining experience.

    I had lunch here with a friend who recommended the place. As it was raining, we stayed inside so I can't comment on the patio seating (if there is any) or view. The service was very good as our server was very attentive. That being said, due the time and the weather the place was pretty empty. The lunch menu had a wide variety of items. I chose the meatloaf. It was flavorful but the texture was rubbery. The stir fried veg on the side was excellent. Overall I give it a 4 out of 5 and will definitely come back. It was a nice, quiet place to have lunch with a colleague.

    We didn't know what to expect when we visited Brighton Bar and Grill but were pleasantly surprised! The food and service were both fantastic! We arrived during the middle of a terrible storm (the lights even flickered) and the middle of a street festival (which had all parking/traffic blocked off), but the staff was awesome and accommodating. We both ordered pasta dishes (we were running a marathon the next day) and didn't have high expectations for pasta quality at a "bar and grill." However, we both agreed the dishes were among the best we ever had. We'll be returning!

    We had an early birthday dinner prior to going to a movie in Brighton. The Brighton Bar and Grill was very good and we will dine there again when next in the area. We all enjoyed our meals, two of us had the tenderloin sandwich which was cooked to perfection and very tasty. One had a build your own burger and loved it, and one had the Maurice salad and said it was good too. Matthew was our server and he was great. We never had to wait for more water or beverage refills, he checked on us in a timely fashion and kept our table clear of any unnecessary items. If I were still a restaurant manager I definitely would hire him to work in my establishment.

    We found this through Open Table, and read reviews, which were great. When we got to Brighton the art fair was going on, so we walked around a bit, and then went in to eat. Our waiter (Kyle, I think) was awesome. He provided recommendations, and his service rhythm was perfect. The food was outstanding.

    BB&G is one of our favorite spots in Brighton to eat. Consistently good food and atmosphere. On our most recent visit, their service went above and beyond. Dining with friends outside, we were caught in a summer storm but even though it was peak dinner hour, the staff found a table for us inside. They are amazing.

    My husband and I met my daughter here for dinner when she was in the area. We were so happy we had made a reservation, as the place was packed on a beautiful Saturday evening. The menu looked awesome and did not disappoint! I had the special halibut with a wonderful morel mushroom sauce, my daughter had the "drunken salmon", which she loved, and my husband had a steak (I had a bite, and it was great). We shared the calamari and garlic platter appetizer, both very generous portions, and could easily have served a few more. The service was awesome and efficient. Everyone was very friendly (even those not directly involved with our service). We will definitely return; this is the way all restaurants should be!

    I arrived early, got a booth as requested in the back room, for a quiet dinner with a friend so we could hear each other and not have to worry about being overheard. After I was seated, a party of 4 adults and a baby were seated in the same room, right next to my booth with a small divider wall between us. Before my guest arrived, the baby was fussy, but by the time my guest arrived, the baby was subdued. Had that not have been the case, I would have requested another table. The restaurant inside was not busy, and though there was ample outdoor seating, it was full and we would have had to compete with the car and other diners' noise. I was just fine being seated inside with air conditioning.

    We had 3 adults and 2 kids in our party. Everyone had a different dish: pork chop, burger, and scallops. I tried them all including kids meals. It was very, very good! We ordered a bottle of Cabernet Savingnon from Kings Estate to complement our food. We were very happy with our choice. We had a brownie with ice cream in a skillet for dessert. It was to die for. The service was very good. This is a great place for family special occasion.

    We had a party of 4 with a variety of palates. There was something for everyone and EVERYTHING was delicious. Great wine & beer selection. The beet & goat cheese salad was the best ever. Pasta was excellent, seafood was perfect and the desserts were visual and taste delights. Knowledgeable server was greatly appreciated. We went to celebrate and it was a perfect spot.

    I was very pleased with my visit this Mother's Day. Was late making reservations and on Thursday evening they were able to find my family of 7 a table for Sunday brunch. This was the 7th restaurant that I called and was the only place able to accomodate. I do not live in the area and Brighton worked as a nice meeting spot for myself, parents and my sisters family, so this restaurant we were taking a stab in the dark. Some family members were surprised by how nice the food and ambience of the place. When you read bar and grill it doesn't always give off the best vibe, but this was a great dining expereinve. The menu was great and prices were very competitive epsecially for the amount of food you receive. I would highly recommend this place!

    Visited here for a first date meet up. Ambience is energetic and noisy...lots of conversation, laughter...good times. Due to noise level it was sometimes hard to hear but can't fault the restaurant for that. Wine choices are reasonable. Food was excellent, the fillet cooked perfectly, and their carrot cake dessert could feed a small army. It's busy so recommend reservations.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 4/5/2014
    The food and service was absolutely awesome. Exceeded expectations. However, the noise level was deafening. It was like an 80's KISS concert in the dining hall. Sure, it was a Saturday night. But, I went for my 28th Wedding Anniversary. I couldn't hear a word my wife said. She screamed a few times, "It's really loud in here." Not what you're looking for during a romantic meal. There are plenty of opportunities for them to remedy this situation. I've been involved with audio for an entire career. They could enhance the 'experience" by consulting an Acoustic Engineer. Capturing and reflecting noise...with the awesome food and service...that's a WIN!

    Food was great and plated unbelievably. The menu was extrmely dynamic and service was relatively speedy. The only problem was that we were seated close to the door and there was an extremely long line for a table which made the area in which we were seated quite cold. Will definitely dine here again!

    I can't say enough great things about this restaurant. The atmosphere and wait service is outstanding. The food is the BEST in BRIGHTON. If you ever crave your Grammas pot roast dinner you MUST try it here. Best pot roast I've ever tasted. The butternut squash ravioli is to die for. Everything is excellent. They give you so much to eat too. Waiters and waitresses excellent. I cannot think of one single bad thing to say about Brighton Bar and Grill. You must try it if you never have.
