It is hard to say enough good things about this restaurant. It has a classy air about it up but in a casually elegant way. It attracts all kinds of folks both in the bar and in the main restaurant area, and the food is excellent too. The staff have always been super friendly and efficient too. We always love... More

We love eating here when we're looking for an excellent meal; either for Valentine's Day, our anniversary, or just a nice evening out on the town. It is also a really nice place to eat if you want to sit outside and take in downtown Brighton. The food and specials are always excellent. This is where we take friends, colleagues... More

We were in the area for a Pontiac Car Show in Milford on Saturday and while staying in Brighton on Friday and were looking for a place to have an early dinner and selected the Brighton bar & Grille as the location and menu looked good on line. We were not disappointed in the least. We were greeted promptly and... More

Always a good choice for family and friends. The place is always full, but worth the wait. Top off the meal with the giant piece of carrot cake! I have gone for years but not as much these days as I have moved to IL. But I always have this on my ToDo list when visiting SE MI,

Went for lunch with a friend and loved the upscale look of the place. Roomy but Cosy with a casual ambiance. Service was attentive without hovering. Great selections from salads/soups to sandwiches and more. My Caesar salad with chicken was made fresh and had a great dressing. My friends chicken sandwich was also excellent. Cost about 11 to 12 per... More

Have been here many times for lunch and dinner, on my own, with friends, with family and with groups. The food and drinks are always consistently good and the service is excellent! My "go to" restaurant!! And if you should order the carrot cake, make sure there are four of you to eat it!

Pass up this "bar" at your own peril. It's really a very nice restaurant that also has a pub section on the side. The ambiance is lovely (when was the last time a Bar was referred to as "lovely"?) and the food is quite good. And the service is friendly and attentive. Heading the bar has never been so nice.

My favorite restaurant in Brighton so far. Great food! Nice to go to on a dress up and go out on the town kind of day but also nice for casual dining.

I have gone here many time and love the food. The food tastes homemade and can get wide selection of dishes from seafood to slow cooked pot roast (my favorite) to sandwiches or pasta. The prices are reasonable for the size of portions. Lunch is a great deal.

My family rented out the back room for my Grandpa's 85th birthday party. Mind you, my family is very large and demanding. Two waitresses took care of us that night and everything was perfect! My wine glass was never empty, and food was delicious. I had the chicken piccata, would definitely order it again. From beginning to end, our experience... More
