    Really enjoyed this restaurant - I took my sister for her birthday. Our server Caleigh was awesome! we did order the chicken hash for brunch and the chicken was super dry / crusty so we sent it back. Caleigh made everything right! The Eggs Benedict were terrific and so was the key lime pie! definitely go!

    Bacon and peanut butter was amazing. I understand all the raves about it now. Unlikely combination that works. The service was friendly, prompt and correct. The Bloody Mary was outstanding. Delicious. One minor comment on those. Premium cocktail but the olives are just standard green olives. Should be stuffed with blue cheese or jalapeño. Otherwise perfect. Fish tacos and eggs Benedict were also amazing as were the deserts. We’ll definitely return.

    We came here on a Friday night, it was lively and busy, but we were seated right away for our reservation. The staff was outstanding- our server, the hostess, and especially the owners, who clearly are passionate about their business, checking on customers and very friendly and accommodating. Everything was absolutely delicious. We started with the tuna boats which were outstanding… I came here one other time and enjoyed them so much I ordered them again. I had the barbecue steak tips and my husband had the salmon and they both were cooked to perfection and extremely flavorful. My favorite though, was the signature salad, which they split for us without us even asking and it was a very generous portion. The baby gem lettuce, sweet onion vinaigrette and especially the addition of the bacon lardons were so yummy. The drinks were very good, quite strong and tasty. The other time I came here we got the Buffalo fried oysters and clam casino and both were delicious. Will definitely be back!

    Liberty & MainResponded on September 27, 2022Thank you so much for your kind words! We're so glad everything from the staff to the food was so enjoyable for you and your husband. Please visit us again soon!

    This was a bizarre meal. Everything *looked* good, but half of the dishes were lacking. I think a different chef would have made an entirely different experience, but the flavors were flat and under-seasoned. Tuna Boats were pretty good. More watery filling than I would expect with a bit more grease on the boat, but more flavor that some other parts of our meal. Pistachio crusted cod. Fish was cooked well and seasoned better than the rest of the dish. The potatoes were lifeless as were the veggies. No seasoning and really there wasn’t enough flavor above or below them to carry them. Needed salt or something. Salt and pepper were on the table, so that’s all we had. Curry Roasted Cauliflower Tacos. C at best. Flavor was just not there. Curry? Where? The apparently home made chips looked the part and had zero seasoning. No salt on chips? Odd. We kept trying them to see what we were missing. Flavor. We had a cheese burger that was well cooked (not cooked well, med rare) and the fries, bun, toppings and all came together. Fries had flavor (and salt)! “I’m not hungry” - Kids Mac and cheese - the kids menu is GREAT! Whoever did this, had kids and gets them. Ours loved it. Nailed this. Service was friendly, timely, and professional. Just wish the mains had not just looked the part.

    First time diners. Appetizers were good (burrata and mussels). Scallop entree was ok. Steak frites were very overcooked (ordered medium rare and definitely medium and beyond - inconsistent cook on each slice). Chimichurri was thick and paste like - not as chimichurri should be. Fries were lukewarm. Server was good though. Probably won't return.

    The food portions were fairly small. Everything, including bread and butter have an “up charge”. I had a Caesar salad and added steak tips. 3 steak tips were added for an extra $12. $27 for a salad with steak tips that were not high quality is too much. Won’t return

    It was fantastic. I called ahead and spoke to the bartender, Amy, I asked if she could make my husband’s favorite drink and bring 4 to the table when we arrive for a toast. It was like clock work and the drinks were great. She also took our food order. Everything was great. Amy was the icing on the cake.

    Tried dining here for the first time. Disappointed in the overall experience. My son was served a Rum & Coke instead of the Coke that he had ordered. He noted that it “tasted funny”. Food was mediocre at best. Both of us didn’t finish our meals since they were over cooked. Probably not coming back.

    The excellent service we received from our server, Christine, was the high point of our lunch at Liberty & Main. For the price most of the food was disappointing. The mussels were excellent. However the fish tacos were bland and the fish had a heavy coating on them. The burger was dry and the serving of fries on the side was very small. The cheesecake is highly recommended; some of the best we've had. Overall this place did not live up to expectations based on price and upscale atmosphere.

    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.
