Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "No other restaurant in Brighton is a must do, and do again. Consistently great food at reasonable prices. A fine wine list, without being pretentious. Mark is great as a manager and has a fine staff."

  • "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. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Outdoor seating as requested. Not in direct sun, which is good. Both our meals were good, service was very good, and cost was very reasonable."

  • "The restaurant was recommended by a friend who told us we had to try the French onion soup and it was wonderful. We also tried the build your own burger and it was one of the best we've had. Loved the ambience and the opportunity to make reservations."

  • "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!"

  • "We really live this place. Our only complaint is that seem to over book. The last two time we went we had reservations and still had to wait 30 minutes and then the only table they offered was in the bar which is noisier and crowded."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "The BB&G roast chicken was over cooked and the Mac and cheese with chicken was decient. The virgin strawberry daiquiri was a little sour and our server rarely showed up until he saw our plates at the end of the table and knew we were done"

  • "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. "

  • "Brighton Bar and Grill is a favorite of mine. I've been there many times and in all of my visits the food has been delicious and the staff has been very friendly. I definitely recommend this restaurant!"

  • "We had a party of 7 for a birthday lunch. The service and food were excellent. When you hear "bar & grill" you don't picture a place like this. This is more upscale than your typical bar and grill."

  • "I hadn't been here in over 10 years and I was pleasantly surprised. Our waitress was awesome and made educated food recommendations to my husband and I. She knew the menu and was able describe accurately the flavors of the foods. I feel our portions were great and it was all in all a very nice night out. "

  • "We had great food at Brighton Bar and Grill once again. Carol, our server, was awesome. She was patient as we chatted and chatted....gave us space...served the food and drinks in great order. We keep coming back- and 1/2 of us drive from Grosse Pointe and the other 1/2 drive from Lansing. Thank you for such a great spot! "

  • "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!"

  • "This is a nice, well-lacated restaurant with a large menu. Unfortunately the food we order was not well prepared. If we come back, we would stick to hamburgers."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "WOW! The food was just as good as any I have had from fine dinning spots around the world. Halibut tacos were to die for. I had the Fresh Lake Erie Perch. It was perfectly cooked we had to look just a minute to see the thought that has been put into the wine menu. We will make up reasons to drive the hour from our home to go back!!"

  • "We had a wonderful meal with friends at BBG. We hadn't been there in awhile and were surprised to find that we could make reservations. The food was very good and the wine selection was unique. Would definitely recommend!!"

  • "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. You will NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. Guaranteed satisfaction."

  • "We chose to eat on Saturday and the restaurant was very busy but we had a reservation (recommended on Fridays & Saturdays) but was seated quickly. The food was great. My wife had a steak that was very tender, I had the pot roast both were great. Perfect place to have a good meal without breaking the bank. Dinner drinks and desert was under $70. Beware the deserts are sized for 2 so split one."

  • "Usually happen to be there on business for lunch. Always terrific. This time, no business dinner, just me. Sat at the bar, great service. Amazing double pork chop, impossible to finish! How they get a piece of meat this tender and perfectly cooked throughout is simply amazing! I also recommend their pot roast, meatloaf or, heck, anything you order."
