    Whenever I visit family in Brighton, a visit to Brighton Bar and Grill is on the to-do list. However, this visit was a little disappointing. The food was amazing, the restaurant beautiful but service wasn't exceptional like I've experienced on previous visits. It's for this reason I can't give it a 10/10. This trip was more like a 7/10. I'm hopeful this was a one-time aberration and future dinners here will be nothing short of amazing.

    I expecting a typical Bar and Grill but this was definitely more upgrade and not in a snotty way the staff as well as the food was very good and a very reasonable price we'll be going back there again and if you like carrot cake order it you'll be shocked and how tasty it is and the size of portion you get better make sure you have at least two or three friends with you

    Dining at Brighton Bar & Grill is almost always a great experience but last night was especially nice. We got a table in the front near the windows where it was a little bit quieter than further back. We also had the joy of watching many father-daughter duos strolling down Main Street or coming into the restaurant for dinner before the big Daddy-Daughter Dance at the school. We had the roasted garlic and cheese appetizer which is always amazing (just wish they'd serve it with a few more pieces of toast...). I had pot roast (YUM!) and my partner had chicken piccata. Both are excellent!

    We were at Brighton Bar and Grill on Valentines Day, also my husbands birthday. Our server was awesome, very attentive, and gave us a free dessert for his birthday. The food was, as usual, awesome. Thank you BB&G. We’ll definitely be back. Only suggestion - we’re aware of time constraints on a holiday to serve others. I don’t think it’s necessary for the hostess to tell us we had 90 min at our table when seating us. Not a good start. ☹️Otherwise, another great meal and awesome waitress. Thank you!

    The food and service are the best around!. I just wish it wasn’t so noisy. Of course there are always “those people” who can’t seem to keep their conversations to their own table. Perhaps some more dividers would help

    Definitely one of the best restaurants in the area serving high quality food and service. This night my wife had the filet top with blue cheese and I had the lamb chops and both were prepared perfectly as requested. The spicey shrimp appetizer was also excellent as were the wines. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    I always have a good meal here! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars, is that I feel there is a little room for improvement on service and food. A slow start with drinks and our appetizer also took a while, but after that things picked up and we had a wonderful meal.

    I would recommend Brighton Bar & Grill for food and ambience. Generally, my rating of the food would be better, but this time I tried the lamb chops. My experience is that any American restaurant with the nerve to put lamb on the menu will do it well. These were good, but not as tender or as tasty as I would have expected. The raspberry mint sauce was very good, simple and tasty without attempting to overpower the meat. The bottle of pinot noir was reasonably priced and a wonderful complement to the meal. Will eat at the Brighton Bar & Grill again, but probably won't have the lamb chops.

    Best meal we have had is a long time. We were seated right away on busy saturday night. Gumbo soup is to die for, a meal all by itself or could be. I had the tuna my wife had the scallops. Fabulous all. Nice house cab wine. Server very efficient pleasant and the right amount of friendly. Spendy but outstanding.

    I love Brighton Bar and Grill and frequent there often. I always get the Black and Blue salad. This time the dressing came on the salad and there was way too much and it made it soggy. I think dressing should always come on the side. I brought my friend here for the first time and she didn’t finish her meal or take it to go. I’m guessing hers was so-so as well. I will keep coming, but just hope you’ll consider dressing on the side as standard. Our waitress was VERY kind and attentive. A+ to her!
