We were at the Brighton Bar and Grill, again last night. The owners really make this restaurant special, working very hard behind the scenes. We go here often and the food and service is always very good. It is a great place to meet friends or take out of town guests.

We recently went to the Brighton Bar & Grill on a Friday night. I'm glad I made reservations for an early evening dinner because it tends to get crowded later on. We were lucky to get a table by the window for the six is us. The food was excellent. I had the Steak Benedict based on previous reviews. It... More

My husband and I recently went to Brighton Bar and Grill for our anniversary. It was wonderful. The Tomato Tarragon soup was the best soup I have ever eaten and the Steak Benedict dinner was the best meal I have ever eaten. Make reservations if you are going on a Saturday night!

Maybe 4 tiny pieces of chicken with lots of noodles. No side salad with meal or even a veggie.I think at least a 3/4 oz. slice of chicken breast would have been nice. Martini was weak compared to other bars. Will not return.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Brighton. They have been here for years offering excellent food and service. I had the Filet sandwich that was cooked perfect very tasty and presented nicely. The table had the Perch and a Shrimp pasta all receiving high marks for flavor and presentation. Live music, outdoor dining and there isn't much more... More

After first experiencing what was once it's sister restaurant (still is???), The Red Cedar Grill in Williamston, I was excited to try Brighton Bar and Grill when I moved here 5 years ago. The menu is not huge, but what they offer is done well. My favorite is the garlic platter appetizer. They have great salads, good beer selection (would... More

An unplanned dinner at the "Grill" turned out to be a great experience. It is right on Main Street adjacent to a city parking lot off-street. The interior is welcoming, light & refreshing and well designed. The menu is upscale, however there is a good selection of moderate to casual priced items also. The food is well presented and my...

First, the service here is usually above average. I have always been given service with a smile that goes beyond what is expected. If you see something on the menu that you aren't quit sure about, the server will tell you how it is. Make sure to tell them what your taste's are like. I have on more than one... More

Our family had dinner at this restaurant on May 11, 2014 (Mother's Day). We did not have a reservation but we arrived about 5pm and had a choice of eating inside or outside. Since it was a beautiful day (80 degrees F), we ate outside. I had a special which consisted of Tuscan soup which had noodles, sausage and chicken... More

Had dinner tonight at Brighton Bar and Grill with my family. We all ordered salads and we all were amazed at how delicious they were. I had the Black and Blue salad. The steak was fantastic. It was cooked perfectly and cut like butter. Absolutely delish!! My mom had the same salad and was also very pleased. My daughter and... More
