“Enjoyable visit at the Bright Star Restaurant in Bessemer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Recently entertained out of town guest at the Bright Star Restaurant in Bessemer, Alabama. The food was great and the dining experience was very relaxing and pleasurable. The menu offered a wonderful seafood variety, which my guest was excited to order. My guest wants to return to this restaurant the next visit in town. Thank you Bright Star for outstanding culinary delight and experience!

“Worth the drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Just had Sunday dinner for the four of us. Great atmosphere with old pictures and memorabilia on the walls. I had fish ( very fresh) and others had specials all of which were good. I would recommend for family dinners and special ocations when you are looking for something other than the standard chain.

The Bright Star is our first choice for celebrations! We drive in from Tuscaloosa for any special occasion we can think of because the lemon pie is worth the drive!

“AWESOME!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We went there for lunch and I have to say, it was by far, the best lunch I have ever had. It was wonderful! The food was great the service excellent,. The whole atmosphere was so inviting and relaxing. We sat and had coffee after lunch and never felt rushed to leave. The staff spoke and were friendly when we arrived and when we left. We were visiting in Tuscaloosa but this Restaurant is really worth the drive!!
