If you want large portions of delicious hot food, Americau Grille is the place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The service is excellent as you would expect from a "Coney Island" style restaurant like this. Many choices and alternates are accepted easily so you can customize your meals. Recommend highly for all of your culinary desires!

We found the waitress to be very friendly, and speedy. Food was very good overall. Huge portions with a reasonable cost for what you ordered. Open on Sunday,,,which... More

I eat here once in awhile for breakfast and the food is good, however, they don't know how to cook over medium eggs. My eggs were undercooked with clear egg whites. That is my only compliant about this place. They are good at keeping the coffee cup full and food comes fast. Maybe that is why my eggs are never... More

I visit Brighton about once a month and during the week I have lunch at Americus at least once or maybe twice. Great salads and sandwiches, plus plenty more. We often see police dining there, which is always a good sign.

We go here often, staff is great. We have just been there for breakfast so I can only comment there. Good standard fare but they do have great spinach feta crepes.

We were looking for a mom and pop place in Brighton to enjoy a breakfast meal at, but we did not get this at the Americus Grille. The service was slow, our waitress did not smile or greet us. The restaurant was empty. Our meal was cold, and it took forever to receive a second cup of coffee and our... More

Our meals here have been filling, home cooked type meals. We have enjoyed our meals here, not fine dining, but good filling food.

Great breakfast with 3 eggs, ham, sausage, bacon, hash browns, toast and four pancakes for under eight dollars. Hard to find good food for such a reasonable price and had it on the table after ordering in about three minutes right at lunch time.
