My husband and I wanted seafood. The Brasserie Brightwell was close by and recommended. It was simple, good, and delightful. We enjoyed everything we ate and the service was friendly and not overbearing.

This place is always a stop on my eastern shore vacation. It never disappoints. Great stop after a bike trip. The staff is always friendly and the drinks and food great.

It was a great location, right in town. There was a band outside and a outdoor bar. The food was exceptional. I highly recommend

Admittedly I'm bias, we love the Keegan family. This is a family run business with a casual but sophisticated atmosphere. Very relaxed, always friendly with some of the most unique and creative dishes in the area. However most of the time I show up at Brasserie after work on Friday for a drink with friends. The outdoor patio and bar... More

Got here with my fiancé just in time to sit at the outdoor bar. It was a nice breeze blowing to match the wonderful ambiance. My go to place for parmesan Oysters....I'm addicted to the crispy brussel sprouts. Soft shell crab. Keep up the great work!!

This is a great casual place to go for OYSTERS. Raw, fried, grilled-- you name it. The restaurant is very casual, with a lively bar scene and a large outdoor seating area right on the main drag in Easton. Nothing fussy-- just god solid eastern shore fare with a French accent. Prices are moderate, service is very good, stick to... More

It may have been a bad day for this restaurant, but we found this restaurant overpriced, service poor and pretty much ignored by the waitress Chloe. The environment is lovely and seems like it could be fun. We do not get disappointed easily, but this was probably one of our worst experiences ever at a restaurant as far as staff... More

Wow, what a treat! My sister and I dropped in for a quick lunch - but we ended up not wanting to leave. Our server Jessie provided great recommendations on the menu. Her service was prompt and not intrusive. Our drinks were tasty, particularly the sparkling sangria. While the food was very good, we'd come back based on the atmosphere... More

Dinner here offers a taste of an unpretentious, real French brasserie...moules, escargot, huitres, steak and frites. Yes, it is noisy at times, no, it is probably not the best choice for vegans, and if a dish is too salty, over-done, or underdone, send it back. However, the brasserie experience is genuine and the pluses FAR outweigh the negatives. Go for... More

Brasserie setting with outdoor spaces- weather permitting. Friendly staff, pleasant surroundings and good food. Only negative is that some things are too salty. That's always too bad as people can always add salt. The side order of greens were just too salty to eat. Trout was nicely done and tasty, desserts all good. Nice selection of wines. If you want...
