Feeling tired after a long days work, all we wanted was a burger, and a beer. two burgers, with a few minor extras (one Fried egg, cheddar instead of American) two 16oz domestic beers at a bill for $79.00 Never again

Went here on a Sunday night for dinner with friends. The first thing you notice when you walk in is that your shoes stick to the floor. It's like they have glue on them, kind of gross. It is a bar environment with loud music, TV's and a sporty motif with local high school sport logos. There are large garage... More

Do not order the French onion soup. Serveed in a soup bowl, microwaved. Not good. House salad was very good. Bacon cheeseburger was also very good onion rings were cold. Average for bar food.

I came in the evening to join my husband at the bar for a beer. The bartender would not wait on me, would not make eye contact. She just continued walking around the bar. She did eventually wait on the guys who walked in after me but still wouldn't help me at all. won't go back and we used to... More

Don't waste your time/money here. There are plenty of other establishments to go to in Brighton. Came up to Michigan to visit some friends and we went to The Pound to have some dinner and drinks. To start things off, the service was horrible. Our food took over an hour to arrive at our table, drinks sat empty and when... More

For the young, or young at heart, The Pound serves up decent food, cold drinks and loud music. The upstairs is great in the summer and not quite as loud -- you may be able to catch a ballgame on the tube. Lots of young people having a great time.

Came here for a lite dinner and food was ok nothing to write home about, bar food typical. Beer on the patio that was on tap was a bit warm not cold which was disappointing. Gets crowded even mid week. Server was nice but felt a bit rushed.

We were visiting Brighton with a large group of friends. We happened to go to Pound on a Saturday night with another couple and sit on the upstairs patio. The scene was great and food was delicious. I wasn't so fond of our server. She was young and not the most observant. Plus she would cut you off before you... More

The Pound advertises that their specialty is burgers. We found the restaurant too loud and chaotic and more of a bar than a restaurant. Bright has many local restaurants that feature great burgers and The Pound did not measure up to their claims.

Food isn't great, go somewhere else to eat then go to the pound for the bar scene. In the summer they open the glass wall, it also has a roof top bar.
