    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.

    Was loud in there, was maybe due to it being father’s day tho. I was not a fan of food, it lacked seasoning. My sangria was too tart, no one in my group liked their drinks.

    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.

    We went to celebrate Father’s Day on Saturday, Wasn’t impressed with the food, my steak frites wore not so good, every hard and the food came out cold. I mentioned it to the server and all he did is take the plate back and disposed of the food, didn’t offer me other options. Also the place is very small and crowded. Pretty much I didn’t have dinner that night only a sangria. My husband ordered a liberty main burger it was ok

    Ordered Mac and cheese with chicken for $34. Got a pile of pasta thrown into a bowl with minimal cheese sauce and a chicken breast cut into 2 large pieces. Might have been ok at a cheap diner but not at a place with these prices and pretensions.

    Liberty and Main did NOT deliver consistently high-quality menu items. They are "stuck in the middle" of operating as a high margin franchisee of a restaurant group and an independent restaurant seeking to deliver high quality, creative bistro cuisine. As an example, the delay in expediting orders resulted in hot menu items being delivered that were slightly warm or cool. When we provided candid feedback to the host who asked about the meal, her response was that "we can't satisfy everyone". Is this the standard that Liberty and Main is aspiring to achieve?

    From beginning to end, we had a fantastic experience at Liberty and Main. We actually accidentally met the owner, had a great conversation with him and then loved it even more. Food was incredible. Service was lovely. Our server answered our questions and really knew the menu. Atmosphere was great. We never felt rushed even though it was busy. It was a family-owned diamond in the rough amongst an area filled with chains. We will definitely be back!

    I was very excited to come back to Liberty & Main because the fish entree I had previously was outstanding. However, last night’s cod over a curry sauce was disappointing. The cod was seared, but it had a burnt taste to it which really jarred with the accompanying curry sauce. I didn’t like the dish/recipe at all. I would take it off the menu.

    Liberty & MainResponded 4 days ago

    Thank you for your review! We're so sorry to hear you did not enjoy the cod dish. We are actually changing the recipe and will be launching a new, updated menu very soon! We hope you'll consider coming back to check it out!

    We got the bucket of persecco which was cute with little bottles of juice. The food is overall not good. $17 for 2 eggs, toast and bacon. It was fair. The quiche was cold as were the home fries. Overall poor quality food. Only positive was the company and sitting outside was nice. We all decided we’d not return. Too bad Aquitaine left this spot. I had to apologize to the others for suggesting this place.

    The ambiance - fantastic. Service - fantastic as well!!! The way the staff helped each other to be sure our table was taken care off - we can appreciate that very much. Food was great! Enjoyed our evening and the owner (we think it was!) on our way out took the opportunity to say thanks for coming - thought that was a nice touch! We will be back soon. By the way - the bar area would be perfect to catch a game and food / drinks too!

    I really don’t understand the positive reviews for this place. The food was just not good - the fig and goat cheese salad sounded a lot better than it was. The figs were chopped up which was completely unexpected and ruined the salad - bacon and peanut butter. Had to try it. Sorry we did - chicken pot pie. This was really a glorified hot pocket with a lot less flavor. - roasted statler chicken. Everything was smothered in an overly sweet onion gravy. The entire dish was brown. The chicken itself was over cooked and dry Did not finish anything. Will not be back.
