Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Been going to the BB&G for the past 13 years. The new owners are great and they improved the food, service and ambiance a lot! (Not that it was bad before!) It was no different on this Valentines Day 2014."

  • "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."

  • "Four friends met to chat, enjoy lunch. Staff seemed very busy so they were happy to leave us time to talk. Neglected to check if er needed anything... Such as cream for coffee. Hard to catch "eye" when necessary. Everyone enjoyed their choices. Some had salad sandwhich combo, some had salmon entre or a daily special. All were yummy. Would return for dinner or lunch."

  • "Brighton Bar & Grill has proven time and time again to be a great place for good food and great atmosphere. The view of downtown Brighton from the front window is excellent at night and reminds me of a combination of Europe and small-town America. I am a frequent customer of this great establishment, and I truly enjoy going there with friends and family."

  • "My husband and I usually stay home on New Year's Eve, but wanted to hear the entertainment at Brighton Bar & Grill that night so we ventured out. We have been dining at BB&G for almost 25 years, and it's our favorite restaurant in Brighton! Our food was excellent, as always, and our waiter, Steve, was very attentive (even though he was also waiting on a large group of young ladies). Our drinks were served promptly and Melissa made an excellent martini, as usual! It was a little louder than normal on New Year's Eve which was expected since the restaurant was packed! We recommend BB&G to our friends all the time and our two boys always ask to go there to celebrate their birthdays!"

  • "BBG is our Go-To place in Brighton; wonderful food, great service and reasonable prices - everything one would look for for fine dining! The New Year Specials were wonderful, and we had the King Crab Legs (and the scallops from the regular menu). It was crowded (always a great thing) early and yet we were not rushed at all. Great experience!"
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "My wife and I had dinner early and the service was outstanding. Even though the restaurant was packed the pace of the meal was perfect. My wife had a filet that she said was as good and tasty as the big steak houses. I had the duck and scallop special. Both were very good. They also have comfort food such as pot roast that is as good as mom's. Their deserts are monsters big enough for 2 with left overs. If you are in the area this is the best."

  • "We were recommended this restaurant by a friend (we are new to Brighton). We loved it! Food was great, service was good, and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit."

  • "We had a delightful dining experience at Brighton Bar and Grill. We had eaten there once before and decided to take two of our good friends for lunch. Our waiter was wonderful. My friend forgot to mention an allergy she had, and the waiter took her dish back and brought out the desired one. My wilted spinach salad was very tasty with its bacon dressing and my husband's pulled pork sandwich was yummy. The other glitch with the waiter is that he brought a turkey sandwich instead of the tuna on croissant that my other friend ordered. The server was so apologetic and came right out with the right order!"
    Dined on 12/13/2013
  • "Although 5 of us arrived in 3 groups, the server was attentive to those waiting, and then promptly took drink orders when the others arrived. She replenished the rolls without needing to be asked. We all enjoyed our sandwich lunches, besides."

  • "We were out with a group of friends and the staff was all very accommodating and friendly. The meal was fantastic and we had a great evening."

  • "My husband and I decided to do some shopping in Howell and stay overnight. I randomly chose this restaurant for dinner and we were very pleased with my choice! We enjoyed talking with bar staff and having drinks while we waited for our table. Table service was excellent as was the food. My tuna was cooked perfectly! We plan to go back in the summer when we can enjoy walking down Main street in the nice weather."

  • "My husband and I met another couple at Brighton Bar & Grill for dinner on a Saturday night. We made a reservation, so there was no wait, which we appreciated because there was definitely a wait (without a reservation) for this place. Our server was very friendly. Our drinks took a while, but they were worth the wait as Josh, the bartender, mixed a fantastic pomegranate martini! The food was completely delicious and we would go back again in a heartbeat! Aside from the service being a little bit slow, it was perfect. I will say, it appeared they were down a server or two, as our server seemed to be waiting on one entire side of the restaurant, so we definitely gave her some grace. She was really great!"
    Dined on 11/23/2013
  • "Menu offered good variety of entrees. Our table tried seafood, entree salad and a 'comfort' food. All were. Excellent!"

  • "My wife and I love this restaurant. I'm glad we had a reservation ahead of time as it was quite busy the night we went. The food is always very good and the ambiance, although a little loud that night, is great for a couple's night out. Great craft beer and wine selection"

  • "Brighton Bar and Grill is a lively but warm location for a nice dinner, whether it is special occasion or just a night out. The menu offers quite a variety of options and the food was very good. Restaurant also was tolerant of a toddler who wanted to eat on her schedule not theirs."

  • "Once again we had a great experience at this wonderful restaurant. We come 45 minutes in one direction to meet with 2 friends who come 45 minutes in another direction. This is the perfect mid way point for all of us. The food is wonderful as is the entire experience."

  • "My wife and I find that Brighton Bar & Grill offers just the right balance of noise, activity, food offering, drink selection and service to make it one of our regular stops. It's very busy for dinner and tapers off after 9:00. It's not a late night spot but just perfect for a couple drinks, a great desert and a wonderful staff to talk to while you round out your evening."
