We opted for the breakfast buffet before the Creighton game on Sunday, food was under cooked and muffins seemed stall. The staff is always friendly and we enjoy the Liberty Tavern before Creighton Basket ball for a quick burger. I would not recommend the brunch

You need to check the Creighton basketball calendar. With an 11am tip off, 9a to 1030 is going to be swamped. I think our waitress had too many tables without any side help for busing or beverages . The man doing omelets couldn't also fill the buffet... that for about 45 minutes had no eggs or breakfast potatoes. The quality of food isn't the issue, just lack of food or any juices.

I like your location, reservation online system, and food. But honestly, before Creighton events you need more staffing even for supper before evening games. The breakfast buffet the 13th was under staffed or mismanaged.

On New Year’s Eve, a terrific $25 for course tasting menu was offered. It was absolutely terrific. I opted to pay a little bit extra for the sword fish dish and it was the most unique sword fish dish I had ever had. I loved it! The service was excellent and I feel like I got a great value for my money.

The staff were very courteous, friendly. We ordered and the time to receive our food was decent. I had requested the steak fries with no seasoning (plain) and Ranch dressing on my salad. When my steak came out, which was a perfect medium which is what I like. I ordered medium well but I have noticed there doesn't seem to any restaurants that will cook a steak through. Anyways.... the fries had plenty of seasoning on them. We mentioned the request and the person said they will bring plain ones out right away. When we requested the check so we could make the basketball game in time I noticed they never brought out the fries. She said she would get an order and I could take them out but we were going to a basketball game. I paid the bill and went to the game. I then realized I never received my salad either. Great steak but I left there hungry.

All the meat was very dry and overcooked, including a burger and pot roast. Food seemed like it had sat under a warmer or was just warmed up for us, not fresh. Fries were good, though, and spinach dip.

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.

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!

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
