The atmosphere is typical of a local "hole-in-the wall" bar with mismatched seating crammed in to accommodate as many patrons as possible. My burger (served with potato chips) was edible, but wasn't even close to being "the best in Brighton" and several restaurants come to...More

Small, quaint pub with average bar food. Burger was very good but everything else was below average.

One of our favorite restaurants in Brighton. While ambience is that of a fairly crowded pub (it is popular), the food is first rate. I like the Champ's special sandwiches, & the various hamburgers that may be on the menu - Buffalo, Bison, Ostrich.

The one waitress they had working on a busy Sunday afternoon was fantastic! She worked the entire bar! Food came out quickly and the beer selection was great! Tons of craft beer
