If you are driving past and are a hungry traveler, stop. This is not a place to go out of your way for. Breakfast selection is really limited...nothing more than pancakes, eggs, bacon,really. But it's quick, decent,and well priced. Locals love the place and it does a nice business.

Lunch is good here with the broasted chicken worth the trip.

BRIGHT"S is one of those non pretend places where you can go as you are for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Known county wide for their famous chicken, (which beats ANY CHAIN !) the menu is brief but always accompanied by several daily specials, which is what is to be expected from a family run restaurant. Always fresh homemade deserts... Waitress's are all locals and have been their a good while. Just a great home town place. ... Outsiders are welcome too....

We go here at least once a week. The food is good. And yes, the broasted chicken, macaroni salad, coleslaw,are some of the highlights. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all available. The soups are really good too. There are many nights when we are tired and don't want to go to a fancy place where we need to dress up,etc, This is the place to go. Just realize that this is a family-type restaurant, not a gourmet place. Traditional type meals are what you will find.

I can't imagine this dump having more than 2 stars! The atmosphere is just grumpy wait service in a filthy restaurant space. The food, even for being out of a can, is sub-par. During a recent visit to Lancaster County, we didn't have time to wait for a table next door, so we decided to give this place a try for breakfast-we should have known better after a previous lousy lunch experience. Limited breakfast menu, none of which is very tasty. If you're looking for a cereal option-not much there either. I think a bowl of Cheerios was all that they had to offer that day. Fruit cup was out of a can. Hash browns were disastrous-eggs disappointing. We now know to anticipate a wait for place next door-& will definitely just deal with the wait time.

We love the broasted chicken and the mac salad really rocks! even though the last order was not correct in the number of pieces of chicken we received, we called right away and the owner said he would make good on it on the next order we placed.
