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.

It was pretty busy when we stopped in so the service may not have been their best but it was not bad considering. The burgers were good and competitively priced. We'll certainly give it another try when it isn't quite so busy.

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

This is a long standing establishment. We enjoy the hamburgers and fries. Good beer selection also. Like to do a carryout as well.

We enjoy our visit each time we go to Champ's. Their burgers are great. Tight squeeze for seating but fun place to go.

We tried this place 3 different times hoping it was just a "bad night". Not the case. If you're not a "regular" be prepared to be ignored. Overall it's the staff that makes this place unpleasant. The food is decent at best. Typical bar food. Waited and waited for drinks. Received appetizers without silverware. Had to go behind the bar... More

We've been going to this place for years. Just a little place in downtown Brighton, but the food is always good. If your in the mood for a good burger, then this is the place to go to.

This is Brighton's "Cheers", without a doubt! Dave and his team make you feel like family. I love going there to catch up with friends!

Champs is a "go to" that we simply dont "go to" often enough. Why? No explanation. Maybe it's the small time bar atmosphere....NO. We know that before we arrive. Yep, it's the lack of close parking. The food is ALWAYS better than advertised. You will not be dissapointed.

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.

Thank George D
