A modern, public house delivering an experience rooted in the heritage of our founding fathers. Liberty Tavern is a reborn American Gathering Place. Chef’s menu consists of classic dishes from our local farms featuring house-made signatures such as buttermilk fried chicken, local beer battered fish & chips, Omaha steaks, shareable dips and a crafted gastro burger menu. The Liberty Libations beverage section naturally pairs with Chef’s creations boasting a 70 bottle wine menu, 10 Beers on Draft and a one-of-kind “old is cool” cocktail list. The ambiance is relaxed with large booth seating, hard wood floors, candle lit tables all set to a vibrant, classic rock soundtrack. The service team harkens the old Tavern feel with warm, caring hospitality. A private dining room with seating up to 16 is ideal for company meetings to family affairs. The seasonal, outdoor patio with fireplace is an energetic setting for before and after concerts and events.

Each year we have come for brunch on significant holidays, Mother's Day, etc. Every year has been wonderful. This year the food selection was diminished and there were not as many offerings for children, which we have four. I did not feel like it was a very good value. The wait staff was excellent as well as the ambience. Thanks for soliciting my opinion

Our server was nice, foodtasted good, but the floors were filthy. It was BH Shareholders weekend, but it wasn't busy at all. No reason the floors should have been so dirty. The bathroom seemed like it hadn't been cleaned in a week. No trash on the floor there, but it smelled.

I hate to say this was a terrible experience.
I made a reservation through OpenTable for 8:45pm and when I arrived I was told the restaurant closes at 9:00pm.
There was no host, and I had to search for an employee who informed me of this.
The employee re-directed me to the lounge, saying they had the same menu.
After a long wait in the self-seating lounge I was told they had a limited menu "for the next few days".
After another long wait for her to return with "the limited menu", I decided to leave.
FYI...I was not a guest of the hotel (work nearby) and I don't enjoy writing bad reviews.

Went for the Easter Buffett. The beef and chicken were dry and tasteless. The salad bar consisted of iceberg lettuce and a few add ons plus a pasta salad that looked like it had been sitting a while. There was some indescribable selection in a chafing dish with no label that was also tasteless and weird. We had cold coffee. Breakfast selections did not include traditional items such as waffles or pancakes. For the price it was ridiculous. We would have done better at an eating trough like Golden Corral, which is a horrible place. Actually we came for the Buffett a couple of years ago and apparently forgot how bad it was. Won’t happen again.

This is our 3rd year of attending your Easter buffet. It was not as good as in past years. My family and I were disappointed. I have recommended to friends in the past but I will not be doing so anymore. Really disappointed in selections, taste, desserts, bloody mary bar, actually everything. Don't know what changed but food didn't have much flavor. One of main dishes, I still have no idea what it was. The vegetables looked good but when I was able to get mine it needed replaced and was replaced with green beans and tomatoes. Disappointed. I asked my son when we were leaving, what he thought about dinner, and he remarked, he didn't think it was very good......felt like a big waste of $100+!

We usually love coming to the Easter brunch. However, this time the food was good but the service was sub par. Our waitress was not very attentive and we had to wait for a long time between the times she came to check if we needed anything. Even when we were leaving to pay she took her time getting to us. Our last time we came the service was impeccable. I guess one out of two times is ok. But that’s 50%.

I was with a group attending a conference at the CHI Center and had made lunch reservations for 7. When we showed up, they acted annoyed and implied that we would need to get in line and wait with others waiting for a table. Another staff member stepped in and told us to wait and they would seat us. We did not receive our food until almost every other table was served and were late to return - took about 1 1/2 hours from time we sat down till we left. 4 of us ordered the fish and chips from a very limited menu (which we assumed was because of the event). The fish tasted like it had been cooked earlier and then re-fried. It was greasy and the breading was soggy. If the restaurant is going to be open and serve special events, it should staff properly and provide prompt service and quality food.

We had reservations over the lunch hour for a table of six. We waited 10 minutes to be seated, another 15 minutes for our waitress to come over and then waited over another hour for our food... Which never came!! Management wasn't even apologetic... Just had excuses of trying to deal with a lunch rush. Year after year we have struggled with slow service here but always managed to get our food in time to eat it before returning to our convention. We will never be going back!!

Although the meal booked thru Open Table was good, the previous 2 and the one following were poor.
We were staying at the hotel so we were a "captive" audience.
Our first meal and service were so poor, they were comped by the Manager.
The trick to obtaining a meal representative of the quality they can produce is to eat at off hours.

As for this meal, the steak was tender, flavorful and cooked almost perfectly. The salad was fresh and the dressing tasty. The french fries were fantastic, hot and crispy. Our waiter was attentive but never asked us how our food was.

When I looked online it looked like they had a pretty good menu. However, when we arrived, the choices were limited to their Events Menu & the breakfast buffet. We did breakfast buffet, which was just ok. Nothing great about it. Not much variety.

We have dined several times. We have the Passport card and love being able to go to restaurants that take this card. This visit we were told that they were out of the Passport paper work so they could not give us the Passport deal. They said they would take a % off. We accepted but will ask before we go again if we can use our Passport card.

Food is good and the restaurantbia cloae to a concert/event vwnue and conveniently connected to it through a covered skywalk. The noise is excessive and does bot allow you to have a peraonal conversation. If you go to the ta ern on a concert day, there is no way yo be a walk in until the concert os already started. Drinks are average and the wine list is limited.

The food is always very good. However, the service is very slow before & after the food. We frequently attend prior to Creighton games & the restaurant always seems to be understaffed. It takes awhile to put in the order, get the food & a long time to get the bill.

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.

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.
