    My mac and cheese was nothing special and not very cheesy. Pricing was moderate. I was a little disappointed actually, but might try it again for a lunch menu before writing it off altogether. Our server was very nice and very helpful.

    This place has a great atmosphere. We had macaroni and cheese with grill chicken and the pan seared Togarashi tuna. Both dishes were mediocre at best. Tuna was flavorless and I didn’t understand the pineapple fried rice and bok choy combination. They did not compliment one another, it was as if the bok choy was just thrown on the plate. Nothing special about the macaroni and cheese and grilled chicken. It was like eating a TV dinner. The pain killer drink was great. The Old Fashion was something to be desired. Too much ice, too much simple syrup, too much water, not enough bourbon. An Old Fashion is all about the bourbon. Sweet potatoes fries are the best I’ve ever had crispy and cooked to perfection with a dash of sea salt.

    My husband and I went to this place for our 5 year anniversary. It looked super cute, i loved the decorations/theme they chose for this place. I dressed up for my special occasion, but it turns out you can really wear anything here. and there were tons of kids. I felt super out of place trying to have a intimate anniversary here. Overall, service was amazing for it being so busy, CLEAN BATHROOMS!! & the food was mind blowing. Best scallops ive ever had. The team is super friendly. I just wouldnt come here expecting an intimate setting. It was very loud.

    The lunchtime waitress (who we've had before on a previous visit) is outstanding. She was so helpful with anticipating our needs and answering any questions we had. We all liked our meals: cheeseburger, black and blue burger, chicken sandwich, and some salad. The noise level is a bit high for our tastes. The lunchtime menu is rather limited, but that seems to be the case everywhere for lunch now. We'll be back in any event.

    Too noisy unable to carry a conversation at the table Charges for a pour of whisky plus an ice fee is outrageous and not listed as an extra charge on the menu Charging for bread is an added cost for the consumer that makes dining out at your establishment less desirable given all the hidden costs The prickly liquor was very tasty in the featured cocktail Need to think of ways to make the experience more customer friendly Thanks

    Visiting from out of town and not familiar with the area but this reataurant was recomended for a casual business diner meet up. We sat outside on a warm day and a few doors down a terrible sounding gym instructor led an outdoor aerobics class and blasted music. It was awful for 30 minutes. Drinks were super strong and my jalapeño infused drink killed all taste buds. Food was good but overpriced. Waiter forgot to bring water at the start of the meal, forgot to offer sugar and bring a spoon with after diner coffee, and forgot to bring back my dinner left-overs. This was a Tuesday but for some reason super busy. Must be one of few options in the area?? Lots of room for improvement.

    Atmosphere and service were top notch, the food did not deliver though. Very underwhelming appetizer and food that came out subpar. The zucchini blossoms were dry and the sauce with it was very tart. The fish tacos were soggy and stuck to the plate, overpowering cilantro flavor. The steak tips weren’t bad, the mashed were very tasty. Service and cocktails were great though, really made it enjoyable even though the food was average at best and sold at premium prices.

    Five ladies had dinner to celebrate a friend getting married. None of us had been to the restaurant before. Our server was lovely. The whole shopping center lost power before we ordered dinner, so the chef and manager sent out Caesar salad for everyone. It was delish. We ordered warm rolls (yum!), fries to share (so good!) and several different entrées. Everything was delicious. The staff was so pleasant and friendly. We even got to talk with the chef while the power was out and he was fantastic. We’ll definitely visit again!

    Had Brunch on a Saturday with a date. She’s English and hadn’t had a great English breakfast in ages. Knowing they had an Irish breakfast on the menu (same thing, no?)…we naturally picked this spot. The weather was great and we saw most of the tables outside were taken. They have a lovely patio section. But they also have these great big windows that open so even inside the atmosphere was perfect. We started with a peach flavored Liberty at Legacy and a perfectly spicy Bloody Mary. And then ordered a bacon and peanut butter. Great item! The flavors work spectacularly together. The bacon itself is very thick and more of the meat than fat (my heart and cholesterol were grateful). And of course we had the Irish breakfast. Sausages and black and white pudding and bacon and beans and so much more. It was brilliant (her words). Our server Cait was also an added bonus to the experience. She was attentive and affable. We felt at home. I really do enjoy this restaurant and as a foodie…I admire the diversity and quality of the menu. No matter what I’m craving, they have it. Will certainly be back again and again.

    I was very impressed with the cocktails. My husband and I are very picky about our drinks. We each tried a couple of different drinks and loved them. Try the lobster tail escargot. I had the blackened salmon for an entree. It was a bit lackluster on it's own. Meaning the salmon required the perfect bite to have any flavor (spinach, sauce, and salmon).

    Liberty & MainResponded on June 30, 2022Thank you for your review! We're glad to hear you enjoyed the cocktails, and apologize that the salmon was not as tasty as it is intended to be!

    The cocktails and food are good- fairly simple options but well done. It was quite loud inside so if you’re looking for a more intimate/quiet setting best to ask to sit in the outdoor section. Servers were very busy but attentive and kind. Overall a good place for weeknight dinner or lunch!

    I order the freedom burger. When you are charging $17+ for a burger, I'd expect it to be great. This burger was clearly not a fresh combo of beef. It was a precut probably pre ordered nothing more than a bubba burger. Plus my chees was just laying on top. Not melted nothing. I asked to have the cheese melted (a crazy thing to have to ask for), they clearly just microwaved it and it only 1/2 melted prob in fear of over cookig it. I would expect a hand made burger from this place not a pre ordered mass produced burger product. I was very disappointed.

    Everything was great except that I had a 1:00 reservation but a backup in the kitchen meant we weren’t seated until 2:00. They had apparently accepted a walk-in group of 23 who didn’t have reservations and clearly they weren’t staffed appropriately for that. In the hour we waited, I watched group after group come and go because the wait was so long. There were plenty of empty tables inside especially. So, that was unfortunate. A free basket of bread (which they charge for) wouldn’t have gone amiss. But the food was delicious, the server very good and the atmosphere nice as well. So will chalk it up to a bad day.

    Liberty & MainResponded on June 30, 2022Thank you for your review. We were exceptionally busy the day you visited and as a result, understaffed. Rather than have our guests sit at empty tables and wait for the servers to catch up, we instructed our hosts to put the dining room on a wait. Being a small, family-owned restaurant, we're unable to give away food for free. We hope you'll consider dining with us again so we can make your next visit better than your first!

    Had a Father’s Day brunch here with 3 generations including 2 toddlers. Service was a little slow out of the gate, but improved and they were quite accommodating with the 2 little ones. Food was OK, not particularly memorable but tasted pretty good, cooked properly and good portion sizes. Weather was too chilly to dine outside, which would have been nice.

    Liberty & MainResponded on June 30, 2022Thank you for your review! We had a lot of walk-ins for Father's Day, so we were busy than anticipated. We hope you'll consider returning to take advantage of our outdoor dining on a nicer day.
