Stop in with long time friends and really enjoyed our burgers. They were very tasty, served with a good portion of crispy fries. Everybody got a clean plate award. The beers were nice and cold. A good stop in downtown Brighton.

While wandering around downtown Brighton, stopped in here for lunch. The place was packed and I can understand why. Sports bar with really good burgers. Service was fast and efficient. Will definitely go here when in town again.

It's been a few years since we ate here. Had dinner Sunday night during the car show. Burgers were fantastic, they use marv's meats! I buy 75% of my fresh meats from marv's, it is the best butcher shop around. I had the turkey reuben, very tasty. Onion rings were thick and crispy. Drinks were good and our server was... More

I have stopped here many times over the years, especially after golf at nearby courses. The menu offers many choices, extending well beyond traditional bar food Nevertheless, the burgers, reubens, and beer selection are all top notch. While the quarters are tight, the service and quality of food have always proved to be very good. Champs is well worth a... More

Champ's Pub is very typical of an American pub. Great for lunch and interesting decor with all the photos and pictures on the wall of the pub. Food is probably great by American standards and fairly ordinary to the Aussie palate but it is still a nice place to eat for lunch when in Brighton

A great selection of burgers and other fare. Well renowned for their burgers. A good selection of beer to go along with your food. A great gathering spot.

Looking for a good burger and beer, this is the place. Love the shoestring fries. Good service. Pam can really rock a full house!

My husband and I have eaten here several times and the food is generally good, so we overlook the slow, and sometimes sloppy service. Called with a coupon last night to order takeout(we have done this on two other occasions)and was told I had to come in and sit down to use it. Checked and double checked the coupon and... More

It's a local dive bar, been around for decades. Needs updating and better lighting. The place is dark and cramped. The burgers are not that great. Too many TV's. The service the day we were there was poor, there was only one other family there at the time and my food (the salmon burger) was small in size, dry and... More
