“Comfortable Comfort Food”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

This place is always packed with good reason. The food is consistent and the prices are fair. I love the salad bar with dinner. I am a regular and love the service.

“Great little diner!”
Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

I usually go for lunch during the week and I love their smoked salmon platter. This time I went on the weekend and tried the potato pancakes and they are amazing! Never been for dinner but love the lunches and a great breakfast also! Very reasonable price to!

“The quintessential family restaurant”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We've eaten at Char Broil for years, but just never thought about reviewing it. It is just a very good, wholesome restaurant with great service and very good food. Nothing "foodie" about the place, but if you want a great breakfast or delicious lunch and are in the Brighton area, this is a good place to go.

P.S. I love the number of old Jewish guys who seem to be regulars (as in - the same ones seem to be there when I go!).

“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Having never been here before I understand when other reviewers state that everyone seems to know each other - kinda like Cheers, without the beer. We checked this place out because of a Living Social deal. The menu is extensive and well-priced. You can have breakfast all day.

I have to call out the vanilla milkshake - it was excellent. Not sure what the secret ingredient was, I am thinking marshmallow, but this was one of the best ones I have every had and under $3. The meatloaf with bacon was very good and piping hot, the onion rings were also good. The broiled trout was tasty and they have an old-school salad bar. We will definitely stop again when in the mood for diner food.
