    From the moment we walked into the restaurant we were treated like royalty. The gentleman on the front podium was polite, friendly and accommodating. Our waitress was very friendly and extremely patient considering one of our guests arrived an hour late! We were a party of 3 women catching up on a whole year of conversation and the staff allowed us to stay long after our meal was completed. They took care of our drink orders with ease. The food and ambiance were great as always. Never disappointing at Brighton Bar and Grill. I highly recommend.

    Table was not pre-bussed prior to entrees being brought to the table. There was not room for all of the plates on the table. Food runner actually handed my plate to me instead of placing it in front of me. Drinks took a very long time. Food was very good.

    The food and service at BBG is consistently great, and this proved to be true on this visit as well. Colleen, our server, was friendly and anticipated our every need. The food was delicious - the blackened salmon salad was so flavorful and the filet mignon sandwich got rave reviews as well. This is one restaurant I can always count on for a wonderful dining experience!

    Exceeded our expectations. It’s several steps above “bar food.” Very extensive menu with a balanced selection of entrees. Gluten free options were important and were available. Exceptional service and attentiveness. Quiet refined dining area separate from bar. Will definitely return. Food was excellent.

    Upon arriving at BB&G we met the hostess and gave her our name. The telephone rang and instead of asking them to hold she spoke with them regarding a reservation as my wife and I just stood there waiting for her to get off of the telephone...When does the phone take priority over guests in front of you? Very RUDE! Then my steak was way overcooked by the chef, and they replaced it, but then a potato was cold, etc.

    Food was amazing! Great drunken salmon and garlic platter! Drinks were pricey and for price was watered down a bit. And dull. Half full capacity at time of service, and waitress seemed disinterested in my girlfriend and I table. Rather rude I thought, but you can tell the regulars take priority it seems. But as noted food was definitely great! And well prepared!

    My wife and I enjoyed a nice date night at Brighton Bar and Grill prior to enjoying live theater at The Wilde Theater. I had the special which was a short rib dish and my wife had the filet. We both got salads and dessert. We thought all the food was delicious, our waitress was awesome and the ambiance was very nice. We will eat here next time we're in Brighton!

    The dining room adjacent to the bar is closed in with walls and it creates a very loud environment. I’m my opinion this is the worst place to sit at the restaurant. We’ve been many, many times and fortunately have only been sat in this room twice but each time it was very loud. Overall though the place is great and we’ll continue to go many more times.

    Unfortunately, this time my husband ordered the Louisiana Pasta dish without the sausage. The chef normally substitute more chicken in lieu of the sausage. Very little chicken for a pasta dish for $24.00. We should have sent the meal back. The Caesar salad with blackened shrimp was not great. The shrimp was precooked not fresh like normal. Less Romaine lettuce also and loaded with croutons. We have been too this restaurant many many times. This must have been an off night. Our reservation was at 4:30 and it was not busy at that time.

    This was our first time here. We did not get an appetizer, but watching them come out to other tables made me wish we did! My wife's Chicken Piccatta was excellent, and it's hard to get a chicken cutlet cooked perfectly! I had the Beef Tenderloin sandwich and was absolutely perfect, and a perfect medium. We were seated in the back room at the end of the bar area. Very nice to have a window to look through and watch the hustle & bustle without all the noise. The cherry on the sundae was our server, Venus. She was attentive, and knew the menu inside out, I ordered The 007 Martini, it was good, but it was served over ice in a tall glass, i guess there's a first time for everything, right?

    We arrived early for our reservation and was walked to a small 2 person table sandwiched into other tables along the wall. I asked the hostess if we could have a booth instead and she said “No” they are too busy and have other reservations. Even though we had reservations as well. There were clearly 2 or 3 open booths at the time. The Hostess only offered up seating at the bar. I ended up taking the small table for 2 as we sat like sardines next to two other tables where you could hear their conversations. The drinks and food were good.
