Brighton Bar and Grill Ratings and Reviews
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.
I like the reserve a table program, love the atmosphere, especially the boths, and some of the food. The fact that its downtown right by the park (location) is great. In summer love sitting outside. Would like to see a few more things on the menu , Like ribs, chicken, etc. but the 8 oz. fillet stake is very good.
Been going to your restaurant for over 20 years and really like it. :)
My husband & I came here for the first time for a date night, which we rarely have. We were super excited & had heard good things about this restaurant. We had a reservation & were seated right away. Since we've never been there before, I needed some time to look over the drink menu which was quite extensive. I told the server this but she continued to stand there. I told her again, nicely of course, and yet she still stood there. 3rd time telling her and she finally walked away. I eventually ordered a cocktail and it took more than 20 minutes to arrive. There were only a handful of people there at this point so not too busy. We then ordered dinner. We told her it was our 1st time there, which I thought she would then recommend certain meals or at least share with us the more popular meals.....nope, nothing, not a word. Food arrived & my dinner was extra spicy :( She also never even stopped to ask how we were or if we wanted another glass of wine :( :( As we sat there waiting for our bill, we did notice more efficient and friendlier servers!!! We will definitely try it again BUT will remember what section/server not to sit at.
Went here for a dinner with my aunt. Service was great as usual. The beet and goat cheese salad was lovely. The dressing was light and delicious. The salads are al la carte and it was huge. You could easily split the salad and have plenty. I had the Halibut and it was wonderful. The salsa topping really accented the fish well. My aunt had the walleye and sadly it was mushy. I guess you can't cook the fish perfectly each time but I will go back and definitely order the Halibut again.
Had a reservation but still had to wait about 20 minutes. Was led to our table - they sure pack them in there! Our table was near the busy kitchen doors. Server took awhile to come to our table. Took drink orders only and did take awhile to bring third and come back for our food order. Food did come quick and was good. No problems there! Server never did ask if we would like another round of drinks or anything else. Have eaten there before with great service but this visit service wasn’t to good.
The meal was perfect once we got seated.
We were less than happy that we had to wait in the crowded entrance for 1/2 hour even though we arrived in time for our reservation. It would have been appropriate for the owner or manager to offer an appetizer or dessert as a kind gesture for the delay.
I took a chance on recommending the place, to get together with my friend from out of town, based on my 30-something son's recommendation and the reviews were fairly good....I was not disappointed! We had drinks....all good, even the wine recommended. We had the Garlic plate appetizer - plenty for 3 of us and some leftover. My friends had the salmon & the scallops and loved it. I had the Walleye - good flavor, but dry. My favorite dessert is carrot cake, so of course I ordered a "slice" and my 2 friends ordered 1 to share. Again, not disappointed, but you should have seen the look on my friends face when they brought it(coming from behind me....I wasn't sure what she was gasping at!). The portion was HUGE!. We could have split it 3 ways and had some left-over. I will definitely be back....just won't have the Walleye!
Again BB& Grill was delicious! Great menu with a lot of variety and a great drink selection! Service is always fantastic. I had the Ribeye which was cooked perfectly! I would always highly recommend brighton bar and grill - it’s consistently great for any occasion.
We have been there several times and I’ve always had the best of service and an excellent Dining experience. The only issue was we had a 7 o’clock reservation And weren’t seated until 7:35 PM. The management however, did, comp our dessert. It was Sweetest day. We will be back!
This is a staple in Brighton, MI. You can always depend of a good meal and good service. We go here three or four times a year and are never disappointed. It's a little expensive but not outrageous. Casual attire is fine or dress up if you like. The staff never rushes you if you care to have a nice leisurely pace. Good food.
Made reservations for party of 4 ... had to wait 15 minutes for a table. This has become typical of all my recent visits here. If you don't want to accept reservations, just say so.
Food is average ( literally ); That is, some menu items are consistently really good, and others are consistently poor.
Date night w/hubby & we both ordered the Steak Benedict - absolutely delicious! We did have reservations & arrived about 30 minutes early so we had to wait. The place was very busy yet we were seated exactly at 7:00. Waited a few extra minutes for our drinks but we know the bar was packed & the bartenders were running their butts off. No problem as the drinks were excellent.
Soup & rolls were delicious but the entree was the best !! Be sure to go when the weather is warm as you can sit on the patio to people watch.
We got our reserved booth in the bar, as I had requested. My salmon was great, and prepared perfectly. The asparagus however had a chemical taste. I'd had it here before so knew what it should taste like. Our waitress offered to bring a new order but we didn't want anymore. She was empowered to offer us a dessert instead, which we really appreciated. And it was very good.
The evening was most enjoyable. Food was excellent and service was commendable. Noise was energetic at first as we arrived at 8 PM. But dropped as earlier diners left. Great dessert in the apple pastry with ice cream. All made from scratch. Loved it. Entrees were excellent - had lamb chops and steak filets on potato pancake with crab on top. Fun evening out.
OpenTable did NOT actually reserve any table for us. Thankfully I called in the early afternoon to confirm and Brighton bar and grill never had our reservations. Will never use this website again. Better to call then waste time here
As always, a great meal in a nice, relaxed environment. My husband and I are still getting used to the menu changes, however, particularly the loss of the artichoke dip; however we still thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and the filet continues to be one of our favorites.
As good as it gets. 😄. Small town restaurant despite Brighton no longer being a small town. Filet was outstanding, and the wine list is the most reasonably priced going. Both Molly Dooker Cabernet and Stags Leap Chardonnay were outstanding! Well worth the trip!
The food, atmosphere, and friendly service of this restaurant is amazing. We liked it so much we brought our friends and they were amazed as well! We did have wait a bit for our 7 p.m. booking/reservation -- but it was a Friday night and well worth the wait -- we got seated in a booth -- it was perfect!
My husband and I had an enjoyable experience here -- although the tables are rather close together. The service was prompt and friendly, the food delicious, and the atmosphere nice but a bit loud and tables crowded together - perhaps recommend a booth the next time for parties of 2 or 4. We are going again this coming weekend with friends!
