Worst thing: new requirement for spending at least $25 on food ONLY in order to get parking pass. We have come for dinner or lunch before all Creighton basketball games for years. We have decided not to come anymore. There have been a number of changes recently. We did not find any improvements. Personnel are polite, that is it. Food was not what we would prefer. Liked the old menu. So long Liberty Tavern...

The new menu at Libertine Tavern is very good. They feature Omaha steaks (of course they should) and the Chef's Buttermilk Fried Chicken is delicious. We enjoyed the E-Creamery ice cream Trio for Dessert. Can tell they really embrace local products (Brickway beers and spirits featured too), which is very cool.

And VERY Affordable.

We went to Liberty Tavern for restaurant week. They offered $20 fuxed price menu for three courses. I had the pot roast with roasted veggies and mashed potatoes, my husband had the planked salmon. The food was delicious and I would recommend Liberty Tavern for dinner.

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.

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.
