Our entrees arrived less than 2 minutes after our salads. We felt rushed like they wanted to just get us in and out instead of allowing us to enjoy the dining experience as BB&G is our favorite in the area.

The "Drunkin Salmon" is outstanding. One of our favorite meals in the area.

We originally made a reservation for a party of 4, but our party grew to 8 and they were still able to accommodate us on a very busy Saturday night. They were very flexible in seating us and our server was excellent. She even offered to split the bill 4 ways, which was really helpful. The food was excellent. I had one of the “big salads” - one with poached pears, and I added blackened salmon to it. The fish was done to perfection, the salad was fresh (and big!) and the dark cherry balsamic dressing was delicious. My husband really liked his salmon salad too, and my friends all liked their meals. It was a great choice for dinner and we’ll be back!

I joined Weight Watchers that morning, so I was trying to be good. Thought I would get a boring salad to stay in low points. I ordered the Mixed Greens with Brussel Sprouts Salad. It had mixed greens, arugula, red onion, pumpkin seeds, dried Michigan cherries & edamame in a maple vinaigrette topped with brussel sprout chips served with blackened salmon. I got the dressing on the side. It was AMAZING. My husband had the bulgogi tacos that he said were wonderful. I want to go back today to enjoy that salad again.

My meal has been fine the two times we have been here but my wife has been very disappointed with hers both times. Seasoning has been wanting which does not make for a pleasurable dining experience.

Another excellent meal at Brighton Bar and Grill. I can invite friends and family to meet us at BB&G without worrying that everything will be wonderful. Very few exceptions to a pleasant evening can be found at BB&G.

It's my favorite 'go-to' in Brighton. Best food, great service, easy parking (unlike Ann Arbor). Thank you for providing a great dining experience.

See you again soon!

Took the opportunity this visit to introduce some friends to the Brighton Bar and Grill luncheon experience. They were sort of skeptical at first about anything called Bar and Grill but soon were won over. She went with the Drunken Salmon and he tried the House Meatloaf. She was delighted and he proclaimed the meatloaf as the best he's ever had. The level of exemplary service that we have come to expect there they found to be exceptional.

We celebrated my father’s 90th birthday today at Brighton Bar and Grill. We have eaten there many times over the last decade and I’ve never had anything but a fine dining experience at the restaurant. The Brighton/Howell area is fortunate to have several excellent restaurants, and BBG is among the very best. The food is excellent, as is the wait staff. Congratulations and thank you!

It would have been a solid 5 star review if they would have turned down the A/C - it was 65 degrees outside and a crisp 65 in the bar too. I realize the staff is 'warmer' because they're working - but the patrons are sitting there in jackets and sweaters - I asked the server if they could possibly turn the fans or A/C down but nothing was ever done about that. Fortunately I had a jacket with me which I wore for the entire meal...I wish restaurants could control the inside temps better - oh well - travel with jackets/sweaters (yes, especially in the Summer!)

Otherwise the food was excellent, service very good. I always enjoy going to the Brighton Bar and Grill and consider it one of the best places in town to get a good solid meal! Looking forward to my next visit - and I'll be sure to bring my jacket :)

Sat outside along the alley which, in general, is nice but because it was a Friday evening, the amount of people, cars, and kids on skateboards going by was significant. Kind of takes away from some of the enjoyment. I had the macaroni and cheese which normally comes with chicken but had declined the chicken. It came with chicken so had to return it. Got my dinner back fairly quickly which probably means they just took the chicken off the top and returned it to me since it was also not very hot at that point. The mac and cheese tasted good but I looked at the plate of pasta (which does not come with anything else like a salad or vegetable) and realized that $16 seems really expensive (especially without the chicken) for a basic pasta dish. Not sure there is a lot of value in the experience.

Everything was great but pear cherry salad was a disappointment to both me and my husband. Found 2 cherries 1 or 2 pecans. For the price please improve on what is in the salad. But other than that
We loved the food and so did the couple we brought.

My husband and I had a 6:30 reservation. We arrived a few minutes early, and got seated immediately. The hostess was very polite and friendly. Our server, Shannon, was wonderful. She explained the specials for the evening and highly recommended the lobster and prawns. It was delicious. My husband had told her that it was my birthday that we were celebrating, and at the end of our meal, she brought out a warm brownie and ice cream, on the house. We have never been disappointed in any of our visits. Highly recommend the restaurant.

We hadn't been there in a while and we surprised to see it so busy on a Tuesday night. The menu was varied and complete. The bar menu was equally interesting and had great selections top to bottom. We found the main dining room to be very noisy and will ask for quieter table placement next time. Prices are moderate. They have sidewalk seating, which we enjoy, but it wasn't warm enough for that this time.
