A word from The Liberty
The Liberty is Charlotte’s first Gastro pub. Our goal is to provide great food and drink at a reasonable cost. The first Gastropubs started in London as many top chefs turned away from the high costs of fine dining, wanting to do their food in a more casual setting.
We also share this vision. Our menu offers elevated comfort foods and pub fare using the best ingredients available. We serve 19 hand crafted beers on tap (plus PBR!), and another 60 by the bottle. Our wine list is carefully chosen to give you 30 affordable wines by the glass. Naturally, we also have a full selection of spirits as well.
We don't have a dress code, or for that matter, an ounce of pretension. We are casual enough for jeans and a tee shirt, but nice enough for a first date.
We are a neighborhood establishment, sitting at the gateway to South End and Dilworth, with a light rail stop in our parking lot.
We are unlike anything else in Charlotte.
Welcome to The Liberty.

Diner Reviews
  • "The food was excellent, however, our server would often seem to be missing. We ran a different server down to assist us with a slight order hiccup. We had to wait to get drinks refilled and then finally seemed like it took longer than should to get our check. Thankfully we weren't late to our next engagement. If it wasn't for the good food, I probably wouldn't go back."

  • "This may be the worst server ever. We came for Father's Day brunch. It took the server 10 minutes to come to our table, another 10 to bring drinks, another 25 minutes to take our order, and another 30 minutes to receive our order. The guy seemed annoyed when ever we asked for anything, but he kept saying thank you. My father in law had asked him what cheeses were in the Mac and cheese. The server didn't know. After walking by the table three times he finally said as he was passing by "Parm and cheddar." That's it. The food was great, but we will never return."

  • "We must have caught them on an OFF NIGHT. Our server was pathetic - we needed to ask and re-ask and (most of the time) stop another server to get even minimal service. Two of us ordered beers that were served WARM - yucky warm - and when we alerted one server to the concern we were told, "Oh, yeah, we are having some problems with our draft beers". And, still attempting to sell them - duh??? When our food (FINALLY!) came the fries/chips were COLD - like oil residue was beginning to harden on them. To top it all we had mentioned on the reservation that we needed to keep an eye on the time and allowed +2 hours for dinner (for FOUR!) our server COULD NOT BE FOUND to give us the check and we LATE! Too bad for Liberty - it should do better."

  • "Didn't like the calamari appetizer. Burger was overdone, even at "medium" it was too crisp with very little pink. $14 burger is too expensive! Very salty tasting. Service was very slow to engage us initially but was fine thereafter. "

  • "Amazing food, amazingly affordable. Highly reccomended lunch spot as well."

  • "This place has taken "burgers and beer" to a new level. Our table tried three different burgerd, all of which were imaginative and very tasty. Their jalapeno bacon is amazing! They actively maintain their beer list to include distinctive selections. We were surprised to find a recent release from Boulevard in our native Kansas City. They also have a large unpublished kid's menu--just ask your server. Overall,an excellent choice for a family meal."

  • "WE had a group of 8 for dinner. We went on a friend's recommendation and we were happy with the choice. Seated promptly at out reservation time. Service was excellent. Food was great. This was a first time for all eight of us and I think all will be back. "

  • "While the price might be a little high for the beers, the food was amazing, the atmosphere is great, and the selection of beers was top notch. Loved this place. Will definitely be coming back. Also, that was definitely one of the two best burgers I've ever had. "

  • "I've been to The Liberty before and it's been fabulous, but our waitress was not very good. She messed up half of the orders, did not really listen, and was not very attentive. Fortunately the manager agreed to comp our appetizer, but it was not an enjoyable dinner."

  • "We went to the Liberty for the first time. It was very good experience. The burgers were great. We sat in the bar area and it was a nice bar scene. The service was good too. They had a nice beer and drink list. Unfortunately, they had run out of sliders. They could also use a few more tvs in the bar area. It would be worth going back there again. It's a nice place to hang out with friends. "

  • "We've been here twice and have enjoyed our meals both times! The last time we had a meal of appetizers and salad. Wonderful!"

  • "The service was attentive and prompt. We ordered the poutine as an appetizer and it was an excellent, hearty choice. The gravy was clearly of high quality and was dripping with umami. Seriously, if it wouldn't have been rude, I'd have used a straw. The included beef short rib meat reminded me of grandma's pot roast. My wife had the Prime Ground Pub Burger, while I had the "Steak and Sauce." My small sample of her burger was very good, with the cheddar being the star of the show. My meat was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. Delicious and tender. The only mild negative was my server didn't seem to get beer. Asking for a non-IPA somehow meant "light" flavor. (I'm not a huge fan of overly hopped up brew, but love strong flavors.)"

  • "A group of 8 with a confirmed reservations for the wonderful Easter menu. The food was outstanding and the "team service" was good. However, our lead waitress REALLY didn't want to be there. We needed to ask for tableware, tea refills and when we asked her to open the wine we had brought, we were hotly reminded of the corkage fee. The waitress opened a pinot and a cabernet for us and then charged us for 3 corkage fees. The 20% service fee was charged for our party of 8 and was most certainly not earned. We will return for the great food and fun atmosphere, but will be wary of the service."

  • "We've been to The Liberty on several occasions with the most recent being for Easter brunch. The menu never disappoints with unique options and high quality ingredients. This place is fantastic for foodies. The salted caramel budino is the perfect dessert for any meal, and the burgers are the best in Charlotte. The drink selection at The Liberty is also fantastic, with a solid beer and wine selection and crafted liquor drinks. "

  • "The choices were varied. The chicken and waffles dish was excellent. Good blend of flavors and my husband enjoyed the pea soup and the salmon entree the caramel boudin is always a special dessert. "

  • "This restaurant was rated a top 25 in Charlotte, the food was ordinary and the design of the restaurant was weird, the parking was a nightmare"

  • "My family loves The Liberty. There is a wide range of beer and food ranges from burger and salads to really nices entrees. I personally have gotten burges from here and they are awesome! They are HUGE and taste so good. Their seasoned truffle parmesan fries are the best."

  • "The atmosphere is rustic with lots of back lighting. Had a GREAT meal. One in group had a hamburger, fish and chips, chicken sandwich and bangers and mash. We don't drink beer so cannot comment on that but the drink menu is extensive, lots of craft beers. As for the food, Hamburger was at least 1/2 pound, cooked as you request and it came out perfect. The chicken sandwich was normal. Fish and chips were excellent, chips were Parmesan garlic coated and tasted great. I had the bangers and mash and they were also Excellent. Sausage had a good flavor and the potatoes were perfect mash. The gravy had pan fried onions and it too was super. It was very cold and could not get comfortable."

  • "There was four of us for dinner and everything we got was delicious: Mussels, house chips, salmon, chicken, bangers and pork chop. All delicious. We grabbed a drink in the bar before our reservation. Good beer list & pretty decent wine list, as well. The bartender's attitude was less than great, but everything was very enjoyable."

  • "My husband and I went here for dinner over the weekend and were so impressed, we went over to the bar area after our meal to watch some basketball over another beer and dessert. The menu was fun with plenty of unique and delicious looking options, and indeed the food was as well-prepared and high quality as we had hoped. Definitely would recommend this to friends, both for the food as well as the beer menu, which was WONDERFUL! Our server and the bar staff were also all fantastic. We'll be returning for sure!"

  • "We were celebrating an upcoming wedding with several out of town guests, and The Liberty handled our part of 12 very well. The menu was a hit with everyone, including the young kids in the party. The food was very fresh and tasty."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We have eaten at The Liberty several times and we have always enjoyed our meals. Their menu has enough variety to accommodate a group - or, at least it does for us. Some of their appetizers are suitable for entrées if someone does have a smaller volume preference. Tried the fish and chips on this visit and was very pleased - tasty, well presented, appropriate amount, etc. Not the cheapest place you will ever eat but their prices are tolerable. Try The Liberty if you need a better-than-average "American" restaurant. It is in a busy location, though; parking can be a challenge. That means, allow a few extra minutes (coming and going) - you may need them."

  • "We had a large group dining on Sunday morning that included a child. We were a little late making our reservation but the staff was super accommodating and had no problem holding the table for us. Most of the table ordered burgers for lunch and they were amazing! And the fries were addicting. We had started the meal with fried pickles, the blue cheese chips and biscuits (there were 11 of us). All were fantastic and I would order them all again in a heart beat. The staff was great with keeping our glasses full and the food came out in a reasonable manner - even the 2 year old didn't get restless. Thank you for a wonderful lunch - we'll be back!"

  • "I love The Liberty! I heard about it through friends and checked it out on Yelp. I've only been there once, but it was amazing! We started with the Poutine Grown Up Cheese Fries! Phenomenal! Short ribs are one of my favorite things on planet Earth and to put that one crispy fries is a work of genius! After that, I had the Southern Crunch Burger. Delicious as well! The pimentos cheese and the jalapeño bacon add a nice amount of spice to the burger. And the chips! Wow! The chips stayed crunchy and didn't get soggy. It was arguably the best burger I've ever had! Seriously! I washed it down with a great beer from Birdsong! The Honey Pie IPA. I can't wait to go back to The Liberty!"
