Bright Star, The


For almost a century, since 1907, the Bright Star in Bessemer has been a crowning jewel in Alabama's hospitality industry. As Alabama's oldest restaurant, it has been setting the standard with its quality service and excellent cuisine. Fresh seafood transported from the Gulf Coast daily, the finest steaks available, and fresh home-styled vegetables and produce are customary on the luncheon and a la carte menus. Broiled snapper and beef tenderloin-Greek style are specialties of the house. Combination seafood gumbo, lobster and crabmeat au-gratin and broiled seafood platter are popular dishes.
