Another good experience. Restaurant was packed on a Friday night. Luckily we made a reservation (OpenTable). Arrived a bit early, table was ready within 10-15 minutes, just enough time to grab a glass of wine from the bar. Waitress was great, took great care of us. Food was great as always. We have yet to be disappointed at the Bar and Grill.

Your food is creative, and in some cases, unusual. but has always been delicious. I strongly suggest that anyone planning on dinner during a busy time make reservations earlier on that day. We did this last time, and passed by a line that was out the door. My apologies to the grumbles I heard from the people in line.

I've visited BB we were shown to our table and our server promptly arrived and beverages were ordered...so far, so good. Placed the orders for our food and all seemed well - however my brother in law's dinner arrived and it wasn't hot - disappointing...my husband and I had requested to split an entree with an addition of chicken - the chicken was cooked beyond belief...totally dried out - it was awful and I couldn't eat it. I informed the server when she came back - and she offered to replace it - I'd finished eating by that time and declined. I said no thanks, I really didn't want any more overdone chicken. She did take brother in law's dish and had it re-heated but it was tuna - and the tuna was then dried out...but he ate it anyway...

So I then ordered my favorite dessert - never fails - the bourbon pecan pie served in a cast iron skillet - warm and delicious with ice cream. The pie arrived in a dish - barely lukewarm - I was so disappointed. I just pushed it away - not going to get a good dessert tonight either. I figured they must have new staff in the kitchen???

Anyway the manager came over and said she would take the meals off our bill - and/or replace the pie. I said, no not necessary - I didn't really want the pie then anyway...just take the check and go ... however she appeared shortly thereafter with the aforementioned pie in a piping hot cast iron skillet...and I shared it with the table - it was FABULOUS! Just the same as the pie I'd been used to getting and had bragged to everyone about!

The bill was negligible. I'll be back soon - bringing more friends! They try hard to please. I left smiling :) Thank you!!!

We go to BB & G frequently and this time were seated in the banquet-style room. I don't mean to be a complainer, however, fi they are going to use that room for regular dining, it needs an upgrade and some atmosphere. We felt as though we were a K of C Hall or something like that. No ambiance, atmosphere and the acoustics in there are pretty terrible. The entire room seems like an afterthought. We would probably pass in the future if we were offered a seat in there.

My wife and I joined two other couples for a delicious dinner at Brighton Bar & Grill last Saturday night. Most of us had the lamb chops, which were delicious and perhaps the best I've ever tasted. The four meaty medium rare chops were accompanied by mashed potatoes and asparagus and cooked to perfection. A great value at under $30. No stout on tap, which was a bummer, but the Witches Hat IPA was an ok substitute. Another diner had the ribeye that he raved about. We informed our waitress Jasmine that four of us were born in September and she brought out two brownie/ice cream desserts for us to share at no charge. BBG remains our favorite dining option in the Brighton-Howell area.

I really like the place, and the food is generally very good. My only reservation is that it is too loud for a business conversation. We enjoy it but not for that purpose and when we sat down I remembered why I don't use it for that. Otherwise I really like the place.

Excellent food,reasonably priced (especially the “comfort food” menu). Everyone in our party of four really enjoyed the meal. Will return again (and get the superb Dutch Apple pie dessert). Very creatively and well made dishes, not overly (and heavy-handedly) seasoned.

Had a quiet dinner with my wife. Ordered a glass of red wine (special) which had begun to oxidize. Informed waitress and it was soon replaced with a new glass (new bottle). Wife had Walleye and I had special with Grouper. Although the fish special had consistency of Mahi, it was still very good. 👍

Love Brighton Bar and Grill! I have never left a meal there feeling disappointed or ripped off. They offer a lot of different selections on their menu, the prices aren’t inflated just because they’re located on Main Street in Brighton, and the food is delicious with ample portion sizes. Plus, the wait staff sincerely acts like they’re happy to serve you. Always a very satisfactory experience. Five stars! 👍

We booked last minute for a shared anniversary with our friends. 1st time for all of us. We were shown to a lovely table and our waiter introduced himself as Ryan. He was knowledgeable about not just the menu but the wine also. His suggestions were excellent and the courses came out at just the right time. Thanks for helping us to celebrate our anniversaries in style. We will definitely be back, awesome!!!

Brighton Bar and Grill is one of our "go to" places when we are in the mood for terrific food, comfortable ambiance and friendly waitstaff and bartenders. Amy was our bartender this evening and she was both entertaining and very accommodating. We enjoyed sharing stories with her and discussing drinks. I had the walleye on the regular menu and it was fabulous! My husband had the red snapper on special and it was very tasty! We love this place and would recommend to anyone!

Another excellent meal at Brighton Bar and Grill! This time we met our family there so this was a party of 6. Service, food and overall - everything was excellent - as usual!

I'm impressed that each and every time we've been to BB&G this Season has been consistently excellent! They never miss a beat! So many times if you go out to eat often, sooner or later you run into an issue - either the food isn't prepared to your liking or the service is off...you know how it can be. But we've been visiting BB&G frequently this Season and EVERY TIME has been outstanding!

Thank you for whatever you've done in this last year to make every visit special!!!

A good place to eat ... a little loud at times but a repeatable and desirable venue.

Met a friend who was in town on business here and she enjoyed everything we partook of, including the monster brick of carrot cake! Service was glorious except for the mistiming of dinner entrees shortly after the delivery of the appetizer. However, the server was not at fault - more of a kitchen timing thing. Server was courteous and appropriately attentive and responsiveness to our requests/questions.

Parking in downtown Brighton can be a chore but I think this restaurant in the heart is a gem that offers many different flavors and presentations at a decent price point for the area. Brighton Bar and Grill has been in my rotation for at least a decade and will continue to occupy a spot there.
