Superior restaurant. This is an old style eatery. They specialize in Greek seasonings on their food. I had the Greek snapper with a Greek salad and both were fantastic. If you like the cookie cutter restaurants, this is not your place. But

My husband and I decided to try out Bright Star in search of a great dining experience, and due to the positive reviews on this site. Our experience was just okay. The food was decent but not spectacular, and the presentation was bland. (A baked potato with sour cream in a plastic cup is not my idea of a fine dining side dish). Worst of all, we spent $100 on this mediocre meal for two. Bright Star has a lot of nerve charging so much for fare that is far from special or gourmet.

Pros: Nice Atmosphere

Cons: Overpriced bland food

I know their is history behind this place but I really do not understand what is so great about it. I have been here many times, mainly when visiting my grandmother but no time ever stands out as exceptional. The food is good but nothing to rave about.

This restaurant is the oldest in the state of Alabama. It has recently been remodeled, and it is much nicer inside, and now they have a huge waiting area. There is a very nice mural on the wall depicting the history of Bessemer. For
