    Wow! We had never been at Liberty BBQ for their brunch and it is fabulous. What a great way to sample everything on their menu! Small plates, as many as you want, from the entire menu It was worth every penny. It is my understanding they may go back to having this as a buffet, but for now, it is small plates. The outside seating is an added bonus, as the inside can get a bit noisy.

    We certainly enjoyed our dinner at Liberty Barbecue, but were very disappointed that they had run out of Baby Back Ribs and they didn't tell us this until we tried to order some.

    Food was good, but the smoked meats we wanted for the Grand Slam weren’t available. And we ordered the Grand Slam in anticipation of taking advantage of the 10% on a Sunday. But since it was Father’s Day, we were advised that the manager said that the discount didn’t apply. It would’ve been nice to be told that since it shows the discount on the menu instead of waiting after we got the check to be advised that the discount didn’t apply. Also, it took a long time to close out because there seemed like there was a long time until we saw our waiter to ask for the check. In that time, we looked at the menu for possibly wanting dessert, found what we wanted, waited some time, and then decided to not get dessert because of the wait. Unfortunate, because I really liked this place last time I was here but it was the first time my family came. Not the best way to celebrate my birthday.

    We’ve been here many times over the years, but this time was very different. We will not be back. Food was cold and unappetizing. My husband described the fried chicken as being hours old and “the worst I’ve ever had”. Kids were disappointed to learn at the end of our meal that the ice cream that was included with their meal was unavailable. Service was slow with a lot of mistakes. We were charged for a side that was part of a kids meal and for cornbread muffins that were part of the brunch. Waitress would not remove them because we “ordered them before we ordered the unlimited brunch”. We needed to speak to the manager to resolve it. At $27 a plate for the brunch, we were so disappointed. Save your money and go elsewhere. You’ll be glad you did.

    Three of us came for all you can eat Sunday brunch. We waited a long time for our food to come out. The brisket was dry and our servers kept giving us the wrong orders. Overall, brunch was not worth the money.

    Took much too long to get our food. We ordered the all-you-eat small plates brunch, but it took 30-40 minutes for them to bring out most of the items, so we did not get value for the price we paid. The food was okay (although the piece of fried chicken I got did not have much meat on it), but it was not good enough to make up for the frustration from the wait and poor service. Also, the men's room only had one working toilet and was filthy.

    Nice outdoor seating but it could use a permanent or better anchored awning, was too windy for awning attached to building. Food was very good but service was uneven. Would much prefer regular plates to the wooden slabs, or even metal trays with wax paper. They need to bring out fresh sauces for every customer.

    Maybe we went on an off day for brunch, but our service was very sub par. Our waitress seemed very distracted. The food deliverers were good, however. We had to ask for EVERYTHING we needed to try to enjoy our meal - had to inquire numerous times to get our first beverage; had to ask for silverware; had to ask for plates; had to ask twice for sauce; had to ask for our missing food that she apparently never put in to order because she was distracted; had to ask twice for our bill. When our waitress would forget to bring our requested items, the food deliverers would do so in her place thank goodness.

    we always bring our friends here for weekend brunch. it's a good value and good enough bbq the last few times, they have been overwhelmed and the service was slow. okay. this weekend it wasn't busy at all and the service was very slow. We had to literally flag down other staff to find our server multiple times + the food was sub par. the servings are appropriately sized, but the pork was dry and for the second time ribs were not well prepared and the dessert pudding was actually a runny liquid. we will try it again - every food business is struggling now and has ups and downs, but if it remains consistently disappointing, we will start looking for a new place to treat our friends.

    Great outdoor patio with good service. Beer selection was good. But both my wife and I thought the food was mediocre. Brisket was great, pulled pork was good, pig belly was not to our taste at all. We had 4 different sides and we were 50/50 on those. We may try it again, but we’ll probably get sandwiches and stick with staples next time.

    Happy Hour here is so much fun! We treated a friend to a birthday happy hour and our excellent server was able to help me sneak buying her first drink. <3 He managed a large group with so many items and was smiling and helpful. The happy hour food is NIIIICE! Great way to have a bite with friends.

    My husband and I eat out frequently - with no kids at home, and dual incomes, we have that luxury. Once a week (sometimes more) we'll try places we have not been before to see if we want to add them to our regular rotation. Sadly Liberty Barbecue did not make the cut. The service was friendly enough, the server came quickly and took our drink orders. My husband ordered the sazerac, and I ordered a bourbon-and-fig thing. Neither drink was super sweet, which is a huge plus in my book, but when a two-ounce drink is served in a 12-ounce glass.... Well, it left us feeling a little ripped off. We order cocktails regularly when we go out, including in New York City. This is the first time I felt like I didn't get what I paid for. When the drinks arrived, our server took our appetizer and meal orders. The appetizer (hush puppies) came out quickly and were too hot to eat. They were supposed to be "jalapeno and cheddar" but neither flavor presented itself. The dressing that accompanied them was what might have been a homemade ranch. It was fine, but not a great match for the hush puppies. After we finished our app, the meals took another twenty minutes to come out (probably not the server's fault), and included the wrong side (definitely the server's responsibility). The food itself was just... meh. I got the fried chicken sandwich and it was straight-up bland. My husband got the two-meat platter and said the pulled pork was cooked to death, and the sausage included an herb he simply did not care for. I do not eat pork, but it smelled to me like juniper which, if you're using it, must be used SPARINGLY. My assumption is that LB doesn't make their own sausage, so I have to wonder if anyone in the kitchen has actually tasted it. The place is quite open and feels rustic. We ate indoors because it was a cool evening, and the outdoor space is on the edge of a parking lot. Indoors was loud, for sure. But we are in our 50s, so take that for what it is.

    We shared the following this visit: 1/2 pound lean brisket, small potato salad, small cole slaw, small navy beans, and the corn muffins. This was more than enough for two people! As it was on a Friday night, things were hopping and by the time we left it was pretty loud. Food is really good, and potions are quite generous. Parking lot can be a bit of a hassle, but worth it!
