Excellent food and service. Could use more room in the waiting area and around the bar. Was very crowded when we got there which meant people 3 deep around the bar and in the waiting area which probably really infringed on the people dining in that area's space

We eat here regularly. We love that you can reserve with open table. Make the reservation, walk in and sit down. Can't get better than that. I find I prefer finding places that use open table, because I hate to sit and wait in the lobby for a table

We consider Brighton Bar and Grille our “go to” restaurant. We had a reservation and it took less than 10 minutes to get seated. The service, food, and atmosphere are awesome. We have NEVER been disappointed with anything at this wonderful establishment.

We showed up for our reservation right on time, yet we had to wait at least 10 minutes for our table. We sat in the crowded bar area.... which we were givin an option of sitting in a 4-person booth in the bar (there was two of us) or sit at a two-top table in the main dining area. I don’t like being squished into a two-top so we opted for the booth. I love eating at BB&G, but there’s got to be a better way of corralling the people who are waiting for a table. Other than that... overall 3.5 stars.

First time at Brighton Bar and Grill...originally had 6 in our party and hostess was quickly able to accommodate our party of 8, even on a busy Saturday night. The menu was very diverse, salads to comfort food. My husband and I really enjoyed our meals...he had scallops and I had the crab cake app...plus salads. Excellent!

Made a reservation for this restaurant Tuesday night. For Wednesday night. we get there and it's 15 below zero. And there is a sign on the door that says closed use the restaurant down the block. No one bothered to call or email this restaurant was closed. We had parked and walked in 15 below zero weather to get to the restaurant and it was closed. That is very poor customer service tonight . Could have emailed or called and said that the restaurant was closed for the evening due to the cold weather. We will not be back.

I must say, after having a very good lunch there after years of not eating there, I was disappointed with my meal on Saturday 1/26. I had Steak Benedict. I asked for the medallions to be medium rare - they came out well done. They were not thick medallions, they were very thin. So, that kind of ruined it for the price. I guess not everything on the menu is consistently good. That is a shame considering how much my entree was. Won't hurry back any time soon.

As always the food is very good. This time I had the scallops and shrimp linguine and it was excellent. The carrot cake for dessert is one of the best I’ve ever tasted. My only complaint is that the noise level can be a little irritating especially when they have a full house.

The meal was always tasty. I was extremely displeased with the lack of service at the bar. It took over 15 minutes for a bartender to acknowledge me. When I did get her attention by flagged her down, I received a decent dose of attitude. While it was clear, Saturday is a busy night. Understaffing or poor attitudes greatly impact the customer's experience in a service based industry.

I couldn't even get my check to cash out. I ended up leaving what I thought my drinks cost.

I'm not sure I feel comfortable coming back. If enough customers have the same complaint, changes will be made.

I was disappointed because we took the time to make a reservation and select a table we would like to be seated (window seat) this was a celebration. We ended up getting placed in the very back of the restaurant connected to the kitchen. Our table would shake every time waitstaff opened and closed the door. The lighting back there is bright white day light bulbs, it was like eating in a hospital cafeteria. It was the exact opposite experience of what we we had before and what we were expecting this past visit.

Rating this restaurant always gets difficult, because it’s hard to continually find words synonymous with outstanding. My wife and I have been visiting this property for years and it’s nice to know we can always count on great bar service (martinis made to perfection), fantastic appetizers and soup (the spinach and artichoke dip and their signature ya ya gumbo are truly amazing) and entrees that suit whatever mood we’re in (comfort food, seafood, steaks, salads, whatever). You won’t be disappointed.

Always reliable, the quality of food and level of service is always consistent and top notch. The wait staff is knowledgeable, friendly and very attentive. Menu selections include seafood, pasta dishes, steaks, chicken, comfort foods and burgers. The after dinner carrot cake never disappoints and is always a favorite. The only negative aspect is the noise level when they have a full house, but that seems to be an issue in most restaurants nowadays.
