We always have a very enjoyable time dining at BBG. When we want to show off our town's restaurant scene to friends or family, this is the place. It's comfortable with just a touch of elegance - very mid-western.

For a salad that falls just under $20, it was overdressed, meat wasn't prepared to what I asked for, and there was hardly any veggie toppings. I would go a main dish so you're not disappointed.

We always default to Brighton Bar & Grill as the spot where we know we will get a good meal and good service. There are many options that we have found to be hit or miss, but not this one!

Our second trip to this restaurant and first trip for an early dinner. Service was outstanding, so attentive and welcoming. Our entire party of four raved about each entree. The desserts here, at least the carrot cake, apple pie, and chocolate in a skillet were huge and very tasty. We will be back. Thank you.

As always, BB&G did not disappoint. The special of the evening was very tasty and done perfectly. Our waitress, Kelly, was outstanding. She was very friendly while maintaining a
professional balance. Her service and professionalism was impressive. In my opinion, BB&G has the best dining experience in Brighton.

 (Grand Rapids)·Dined on January 27, 2018

We met friends for dinner. We had reservations and our friends were late. They tried to seat us twice before our friends arrived but would not seat us without everyone being there. We had to wait 5-10 minutes for a table after that. The service and food was very good. We had steak which was amazing! The music that was playing over the speaker system was annoying. Just added to the noise. That is my only real complaint. We will definitely go back again.

Our server (I apologize for forgetting her name but she had short curly brown hair and glasses) was great despite our very awkward conversations. She was very patient with us. However, being one of the only brown people in the restaurant, the man at the table next to ours kept staring at me. It was very uncomfortable. Other than that I loved it there.

Brighton Bar and Grill has an extensive menu with choices ranging from light dining to comfort food. Our waiter, Ryan was very attentive and helpful. Food portions are generous. Our table was in a busy location, thus a bit distracting. A great place to go for delicious food and great service.

The food was very good, the service was excellent. But it was New Years Eve & it was extremely noise. We could have done without the music, it only added to the noise.

The hostess told me it would be a second, they were “clearing off a table.” However, they then proceeded to sit multiple couples ahead of me, with or without reservations. I was then informed that they would seat me when my full party got there. I wish I would’ve known that before I got irritated, because it was a first date and I would’ve loved to already had the table. I like the atmosphere and my burger was good. It got pretty crowded around my table near the door so we lost our server for most of the night. Not sure if this place is worth the pricier tag. I’d recommend not getting a table by the door on a busy night.

Food was good, not spectacular. The fish was under seasoned ; bread basket arrived with half of the rolls burned; waitress didn’t tell us about the specials (which we saw on our way out, and would have ordered); nor did she check on us for a second round of drinks or water refill. Pasta was good and lamb was prepared well. For all the rave (voted one of best restaurants in metro Detroit) I was underwhelmed by both food and service.

This was my second visit - the first was for dinner and I gave it 5 stars. This time we went for lunch and was not so impressed. The service was extremely slow - and I felt like I had to search for our server several times. The food was good - nothing special - basic lunch menu.

One negative that has always bothered me for many years is that the wait staff area is in the middle of the restaurant. While we were about 10 feet away from them coming and going, placing orders on the computer, dirty table items placed there, a tray was dropped. Very disruptive. It makes relaxing difficult if the staff and also the manager are hustling around.

We enjoyed the food, drinks and our waitress was super friendly. However, we had 6:30 reservations for our 10 year anniversary and the wait was insane. We didn’t get seated for our reservation until 7pm. I understand it was busy and lined out the door but for a reservation a half hour wait seemed as if they were very unorganized. The hostess was running around like crazy and told us just to keep waiting and never gave us a time estimate. For a reservation we thought maybe a 5 minute wait but a half hour standing was a bit much. We had a great meal and will be back but I think the organization could improve as many seemed visibly upset and they had a call ahead list, reservation list and a wait list. It was just very chaotic and the staff didn’t seem to know what to do.
