We can always count on having a good time and great meal at Brighton Bar and Gril! Service is spectacular and eating outside on a beautiful night was so relaxing. Food is always great - - we eat here often and have not had a bad meal yet.

Had a nice dinner last Saturday with a friend who is a visiting professor from China. All was good except that even though he's 35 years old he was unable to order a beer without his passport! We really enjoyed the garlic platter appetizer although it was too big for two people. He had a nice ribeye and I liked my chicken piccata.
There is a great dessert menu but not a chance for us as the meal was too big.

My husband and I go here often. We’ve tried a variety of dinner selections, but I think their chicken piccata is one of my favorites. They also have delicious walleye, salmon, and melt-in-your mouth fillet mignon. Wait staff is usually very good and the consistency of food quality keeps us coming back again and again. Plus being centrally located in downtown Brighton makes it the perfect place to stop after shopping.

Split a meal and would have liked something else on the plate. It was great food but looked sad all by itself. I think a little cabbage or vegetable would have improved the look. We shared the steak with potato pancske?

We took out of town guests from Australia to the Brighton Bar and Grill for a relaxing evening meal - and true to form - everything was exceptional! The server was timely, courteous and efficient! The drinks and appetizers arrived promptly - refills were timely as well. Our server thoughtfully made sure that everyone had everything they needed at all times. We were very happy that we'd chosen to bring our guests to BB&G. We wanted them to have a favorable impression of our small town - and we were so pleased that everything went well at one of our favorite restaurants!

The entrees were also exceptional! Very good food, served hot and promptly.

Thank you to our server and the chef! Everything was terrific! We'll be back soon to have another wonderful meal at BB&G!

Seated according to reservation time. Took drink order, then did not see our waitress for 30 minutes.

Wanted to order appetizers first, waitress talked us into ordering entire meal.

Two of our guests waited 25 minutes for appetizers to arrive.

Had to ask for bread twice. Noise level was extremely high. Then music through the speaker system came on. Not the best dinning experience.

We came here after a birthday hike and dinner. We had 5pm reservations but finished our 5 miles and arrived around 415 and seated us. Drunken Salmon, Fish Tacos were fabulous.
The walleye was good not great. Nice presentation. Service was wonderful as was the food. The carrot cake was split between the 6 of us and was wonderful.

Wait staff is very good. They work as a team. If someone can get something for another waiter's table, they do it. Food was prepared well and served hot. Beer selection was very good for a general (non-brew pub) restaurant. Two members of the staff (besides our waiter) thanked us for coming in as we left. I know that's a small thing, but it's something that will encourage people to come back.

It was delightful! Our waitperson,Mickey, was outstanding and helped with any questions we had. The entrees were reasonably priced under $30 and the portions were generous. The scallops were exceptional. We ordered the roasted garlic appetizer to share (4 of us), individual entrees and the carrot cake to share. The portions were huge; it seemed like half a loaf of crusty bread with two large garlic heads and with what seemed like a cup of Boursin cheese and the carrot cake came home for another day. The wine selection was good and the specialty cocktails were unique.

Met my cousin and her husband for a long overdue family update. Very pleasant, great service and good, affordable food. Second day in a row that my wife and I visited the BB&G, the other was with a dear friend for lunch.
Had the same server on both occasions. Audrey is a great, knowledgeable server, very patient and precise.
The standby favorites are the salmon and the chicken piccata. Several other comfort food meals are available, as are salads and burgers. Great place to drop by.

Great food and menu choices. The table where we were seated was in the main traffic isle so it was a loud and busy location making conversation difficult. Booths or a table in the back seemed like they would be better.
