First time here, but won't be our last. Food and service was outstanding. We ate there on a Saturday night and it was very busy. Make sure to make reservations.

I took my nieces to lunch and they chose Brighton Bar and Grill. It was a beautiful day and there was a table available outside so we advantage of it. We enjoyed a luncheon special which included a sandwich and bowl of soup. All three of us ate almost every drop and morsel of food AND ordered dessert! The wait... More

Another good visit and if you like Carrot Cake, you will NOT be disappointed! Our guest said the Calamari appetizer was very good also!

I have eaten here a few times. I come for their garlic platter appetizer. SO AMAZING!. Their drunken salmon, cherry BBQ pork chop, and scallops are wonderful too. The only thing is that your bill adds up very quickly here. Soup and salads are add-ons. Great for a date night.

This is one of the best restaurants in Brighton and the surrounding area. The meals are always delicious and the service is superb. I would say that the menu has a California blend with some Mid-western favorites thrown in. The prices are reasonable and the wine selection is great. Try the carrot cake for dessert - but share it with... More

We chose this restaurant as it was in the middle for friends coming in from Lansing and a couple from Novi. . I'm glad I made reservations for an early evening dinner because it was crowded by the time we got there. We ordered beer on the tap and it was local brew and it was great. We ordered few... More

We started with the calamari appaetizer, quite tasty and a genrous portion for two to share. Both of us ordered a cup of gumbo to begin with. The gumbo was avaerage, mostly a thick chicken stock with some chicken and sausage. Not bad, not great. I oredered the perch, very small but tasty filets. Instead of whipped potatoes I ordered...

Intimate and friendly, with great food and carrot cake to literally die for. Nice variety on the menu, and nothing you'd feel is over-priced. Dining room, bar and outdoor seating options. There are numerous dining options in downtown Brighton, from local family restaurants to bars with good food, but if you have just one night in town, this place is... More

I had to rate this place average, because it did not meet my expectations. The service was good and the food was pretty good. With the lovely setting and higher price points, I expected to be wowed. The Spicy Asian Shrimp was just okay, not even good. My companion's sandwich was middling, as well. My salad was above average... meeting... More
