Service was prompt even though the restaurant was packed. Watress was friendly and gave good recommendations. Everyone at the table (4) loved what they ordered. My husband said the pork chop was the most tender he had ever had. The Asian Shrimp pasta dish was superb. We ordered the Charcutarie board and tomato bisque soup both good, but the board was too small for the meets and cheeses, especially to cut them in order to share as appetizer for the table. Everything else was good. Prices were reasonable.

We went for our ten year anniversary and Denita set a table outdoors with flowers and a table cloth and was genuinely warm and excited for us. The chef Kimbler came out to greet us with a special dessert. They both went above and beyond to spice up our special evening we were impressed and couldn't have been any happier!

The night before Mother’s Day, my siblings, my dad, and I were in a panic. Where were we gonna do mothers’ day brunch?! Thankfully they accommodated our entire group of 9 PEOPLE. Food was delicious and everyone enjoyed brunch!

Best beef roast I had in Omaha! Great fruit salad, and attentive hosts.

First time eating this highly rated restaurant’s brunch. Very good overall. Server was friendly and attentive as well as the other staff. It had a good vibe, the upstairs was classy and stylish while the downstairs was more subdued bar style and had its own charm. My date and I really enjoyed the food and ambience. Not sure why they couldn’t find our OpenTable reservation but glad the cold day helped to ensure we were still sat without other issue. Though there was a problem with another party that came later but I think it worked out organically in the end. All in all we will try again as it’s a staple of Arlington. I also like it because it used to be a Masonic lodge which I also asked the host about and he oblivious to but whatever.

We’ve always enjoyed Liberty Tavern for their special buffets however this time we were disappointed. The turkey was salty, the potatoes were way to garlicky,and no real solid vegetables, like green beans. The salads were good and the deserts yummy.

The place really needs help. They do not offer very many items. My seafood stew I have had before was tasteless and the "seasonal vegetables" were potatoes,peas & carrots. To me they looked frozen. The ribeye was tough but flavorful.
I wish they would revamp this restaurant

Very very busy due to big event at the arena just across the street, this large hotel restaurant was clearly overwhelmed. Items were forgotten twice despite reminders. The food came out like it had been shoveled onto the plates. The waiter, though pleasant, was not up to the task. The food was disappointing . The manager did come to our table and paid for our drinks in recompense for an overall unpleasant experience.

Food was fine, most of the people we encountered were very friendly; hostess, busboys, and other servers. Our server was the problem. She was not very friendly, seemed bothered to be there, and we witnessed her rudeness to other patrons and her fellow staff members. It took us over 30 minutes to get our drinks. The food almost came out faster. Everything took really long. In all fairness it was an event night at CenturyLink and many of the horse show attendees and riders came back to the hotel for drinks and food-but being so close would make me think that this isn't unusual and they would be prepared for a big jump in volume. No manager in sight. We weren't in a hurry and would have been more understanding if our server was simply nice.

Booked here because it was very close to an event at Century Link. I was concerned that the meal would be very expensive, but it was reasonably priced and quite good. Recommend reservations if there is an event nearby.

Great food, exceptionally slow, slow service. Took 15 mins to get a water, and I had to ask 4 times for it, and once it was gone, they didn't refill it automatically. It wasn't busy either, so not sure what the issue was on their end.

Concentrate on having exceptional service and you have a top notch place to eat.

It took us an hour to get our food; when the restaurant wasn't busy. They couldn't make a simple Sangria. Our waitress couldn't answer any questions about the food, but said she'd get back to us and left. She never got back to us on the questions. Couldn't give us a drink menu. Overall wasn't a good experience.

Brunch 1 1/2 hrs before a Creighton basketball game. Our waitress was sweet, but totally overwhelmed. Seated 20 min. No menus, no waters. Told her we'd go to the buffet. Were handed the check before we got our waters, coffee or self served the buffet.

Food was good, but they need more staff, especially when they know they're going to be busy (before scheduled events).

The vegetables were not cooked enough. The Brussels sprouts were hard and didn't have much flavor. The same for the acorn squash. Many of the salad side dishes were of the pasta type. I would like to have seen more vegetable options. The meats were very good. The desserts were very good.

Holiday dining: variety was good. Quality of meats/fish was inconsistent. Some very good, others not so much. Vegetable recipes looked appetizing and delicious but brussel sprouts were undercooked and squash was stringy. More variety of vegetable dishes would have been nice also. Mashed potatoes and dressing were very good. Dessert table was well supplied. Quality, variety, and quantity of desserts was very good.

My spouse and I had reservations for the Thanksgiving buffet. It really lived up to the billing! The turkey was moist and well cooked. Our favorite was the dressing and the Turkey gravy. Great flavors. The service was very good and our waitress was both attentive and polite. Finally the variety of the dessert table was really tasty especially the apple pie. We will be back next year and recommend this venue to our friends?

This was our first visit to the Hilton's Liberty Tavern. The wait staff was very hospitable and had a warm friendly attitude. Having been our first time to this Sunday Brunch, she explained everything and the food was well prepared with a great presentation. We would definitely recommend to any travelers or as in our case any local residents looking for a downtown Sunday brunch. We made reservations through Open Table but probably did not need them.
