I've never had a bad meal here, and they've added some wonderful new dishes to their menu. Outside dining is also quiet and intimate, even though they're located on Main Street.

BB&G is my favorite restaurant in Brighton! I've tried others and always come back to BB&G. This year for my birthday I invited the family (party of 8) to join me there for dinner. We had a terrific server with a great sense of humor! Our food was wonderful as always - as was that of everyone else at the table.

My only request would be to have had white tablecloths on our tables - two tables were pushed together in the back booth to make room for 8 - I just feel for my special day that the white tablecloths would have made our experience more memorable and it's a much nicer backdrop for photos than wooden-topped tables. I understand that all the side booths are set up like this and next time I'll request a tablecloth.

Thanks so much for a wonderful dinner! We WILL be back :)

The food was delicious!! The waitstaff was excellent. Try the carrot cake! The pieces are huge and even sharing with my husband, we still had a large piece to take home.

Natalie, our server was the best server we've had at Brighton Bar it was a bit overcooked - I should have said something. Otherwise, it was a beautiful night to sit outside and enjoy a nice dinner and bottle of wine.

This was our first time here, and it will certainly not be our last, everything from our appetizer to our meal to our drinks were great! The bartender sure knows how to make a GREAT bourbon old fashioned. And the free brownie dessert for my birthday just made my day!!

I'm a repeat customer, and I'm usually very pleased with the restaurant. On Friday at lunchtime, however, it took almost an hour to get our food. The restaurant wasn't particularly busy, so the delay was somewhat baffling. Our server wasn't at all apologetic about the delay. They could have done better.

Food is always amazing, never have had a bad meal. New twist was to ask for their homemade angel hair pasta with the chicken piccata (in lieu of their amazing mashed potatoes). This was fantastic and should be on the menu!!! This is my favorite restaurant in Brighton, hands down.

Food, 8oz filet, was cooked perfectly. Tammy, our server, did a great job in the bar area to take care of the five of us. Water and drinks filled. Would go back again.

We visited Brighton Bar and Grill for our Anniversary and sat outside on the side of the building. Delicious food. My husband had filet and I had Scallops. We finished with Dutch Apple Pie. We’ll be back.

First time in. For the price, it was awesome. Service was good and the food was terrific! Got the calamari, a bottle of Pinot noir, the steak Benedict, and the grilled chicken Mac and cheese. All of it was fast and delicious. All for $90. Great spend. Will definitely be back to try other items on the menu that sounded great!

Food was outstanding! Had the special which was a grilled grouper with diced hearts of palm and asparagus in a light beurre blanc sauce. Best prepared fish we have eaten in Michigan.

Our waitress was delightful. Unfortunately we were seated in bar area (Friday night) so very noisy. Our waitress smiled as if we were the only patrons and the noise did not remain an issue. Outstanding evening!

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.

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!
