The Liberty Bar in San Antonio is serious about food. Serving a menu that is unlike typical bar fare in an elegant, yet casual dining space, the Liberty Bar offers freshly baked bread, desserts, sourdough pizza, pasta made by hand and daily specials that place an emphasis on local produce and meats.



Try the daily quiche or the prime rib steak at the Liberty Bar for a familiar American dish that is hard to beat when paired with one of the many artisanal beers on tap. Enjoy grilled mahi mahi with kale chips or come in for happy hour and indulge in an order of Gulf Coast crab cakes with your drink.

We had a reservation for 3 for 9 am breakfast on Saturday Jul 13. As we were waiting at the front door for Liberty Bar to open, a woman on the other side of the door appeared and unlocked the door. She didn’t seem to acknowledge our presence and did not greet us or hold the door open for us. It was a little confusing, but we opened the door and let ourselves in. When we entered she again made no attempt to greet us, and just proceeded to seat us. Only once we were seated did she ask for our reservation information. I’m not really sure what the problem was, but if that is her normal attitude, I wouldn’t have her greeting your customers.

Our server, however, was very friendly and professional.

I'm really disappointed I didn't order the Kale Chips. They looked so good. We did order the Minguichi (Queso) and it was delicious. I highly recommend it. We also had the Garlic Pork Sausage Links with Mashed Potatoes and it was very good as well. There seemed to be quite a few regulars, which is always a good thing. The bartenders were friendly and the rest of the staff seemed very nice. I love how you can see into the kitchen. Those guys can pump out some food. I definitely recommend this restaurant for a date night or a business meeting.

IHOP makes better eggs and bacon!!!! Now I know why it was so easy to get a reservation for brunch. The worst brunch experience we’ve had living in SA over ten years. Eggs were not cooked as requested and over cooked with brown crispy edges and grease marks, bacon was way over cooked with no flavor, French toast was burnt on end, $2 avocado had brown spots and food was not hot. Server had zero personality or care. Bacon was delivered on its own plate with remaining food coming out over a five minute period at different times. Window ledges dirty and hair in menu. Just awful!

Great service. Happy hour prices were very reasonable for apps and drinks. Bartender could work a bit on his old fashion (made twice one # 1 had a heavy pour of Rye # 2 had a heavy pour of bitters)

Really like this place a LOT

Ambiance and food were incredible. For anyone celebrating a birthday, do not bring your own cake to the restaurant because there is a hefty charge ($25)! Apart from that, everything was lovely.

When we arrived, which was later than I'd typically eat, but we were coming after a show, the only seating was upstairs in a small room by the bar. I'd booked based on the descriptions' promise of high ceilings and lovely vibe, but frankly we could have walked into any of the nearby bars and received the same (and probably would have gotten a drink sooner than 22 mins. after seating). Food and drinks were good.

Lemme just say that Brunch here is awesome.

But my dinner experience was very so so. Service was sluggish and the food was bland. Took way too long to bring a simple juice for my kiddo. It actually arrived after diner did. That was even asking another server to bring. Not impressed with the dinner ambiance here. Spoke to other friends who have eaten here so much the same thought.

The restaurant is beautiful but the service was so disappointing. Our server was painfully unfriendly and not personable at all. We felt like he just wanted us to eat and get out of there. He didn't even greet us, just asked for our drink order, then he brought us a coffee without a spoon and brought one over when I asked him for one. My husband ordered a coffee after that and he brought his without a spoon as well. Just no attention to detail and not service oriented at all. The food was good but nothing to make me want to come back given the experience we had. Also, there are no changing tables in the bathroom, which is just ridiculous. The only pleasant person we came across was the gentleman who seemed to be the manager that morning greeting at the top of the stairs and expediting. Liberty Bar could be such a wonderful experience with the beautiful building and good menu but service is what is comes down to and they're clearly struggling.

I’m ready for Liberty Bar to change it up. Shake it up with some ambiance. I feel like it’s halfway effort.
Food was ok. Pizza was good. The famous goat cheese app was too much food. Bread should be toasted more, thinner slices too. Maybe a sprinkle of salt.
Sandwich I ordered was all bread. Thin that stuff up - I ordered a sandwich not a breadwich. Same bread from app is used on apps.
All in all I want to like the place, been going there for years, even with change of location, I just feel it needs to be jazzed up.
Service was great!

Th house-made fettuccine with spicy shrimp was excellent, as was the chicken Hoja Santa and mixed green salad. The key-lime chess pie was luscious and the house-made mango ice cream was, too. Service was friendly and attentive. Overall, a great meal at a very reasonable price in a charming former convent.

Very good experience. Our waiter was very attentive and offered the specials of the day. The food was delicious and came out very quickly (breakfast items). On the negative side, the Mimosa was very small compared to the price and other establishments. Food could have been a little warmer. But all together the experience was very positive and we will definitely go again.

It's been a while since our group was at Liberty Bar, but they have made more cosmetic changes that are lovely. We were seated by a front window and it was for one of our birthdays. We all got the quiche with salad and it was wonderful. We brought a cake and served it ourselves(I brought plates etc.). I'm sure they would have done all of this but didn't want to burden the staff. It was particularly noisy either, even though it was full. Just a nice experience and love the history of the building. Thank you, once again, for making a special occasion special. We stayed longer than most to visit, and we asked for coffee, etc. Everyone was so helpful and nice. Thanks to the waitstaff--so lovely.
