I’ve never been to downtown Bessemer. A friend & i were in the area because we needed an army/Navy store for our son’s ‘swat team’ Halloween costumes. She told me she was taking us to the Bright Star restaurant because i’d never been before. The town is very small, very old & quite empty.
The restaurant was very, very cool. I had fried snapper, fried okra, Greek Salad & with cornbread & a coke. Best Southern meal i ever ate. The history is amazing & the inside was like a time warp. I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to step back into the Art Deco style & see it for real.
The address is the first photo. 🙂
