    First time there with my family. Very nice restaurant. Staff were friendly. Menu wasn’t large but had enough verities for the 4 of us. My husband had the brunch sandwich but the bread were a bit too well done. We will be going back.

    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 5 days agoThank 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! We're launching an update menu with better recipes, so we hope you'll consider dining with us again in the future to try out what we've improved on!

    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 5 days agoThank 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 5 days agoThank 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.

    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?

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.

    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 on June 22, 2022Thank 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!
