Seafood
Seafood focused staple of Canalside now open year round! We serve the very best seafood, sandwiches, appetizers and entrees (and have something for the kids as well). The full service bar offers up fine cocktails, spirits, wine and an fantastic assortment of both draft beer and cans. Walking distance to the arena and all that the downtown waterfront has to offer, with free parking for patrons. A fixture of Buffalo's beautiful waterfront, we look forward to welcoming you to Liberty Hound; we ARE Summer in Buffalo!

Such a great lunch, as usual. Ahi Tuna Nachos are so good, even when the tuna was gone, I took the wonton chips home! Lobster grilled cheese sandwich is amazing! My mom's Liberty burger medium rare was PERFECTLY done. This is not common! Love this place!

A little noisy, but hey - it is a bar. Great Fisherman's Stew, good beer selection and great views of the Naval Exhibit - even though still a little wintry in Buffalo.

I come in for the Ahi Tuna Nachos, I love them so much I make them at home now! Yours need more tuna, it's more chips but everything else is perfect! Your salads are delicious, lots of drink options and really friendly staff!

The waiter was rude. Brought the entrees out before we had even come close to finishing our apps let alone our soups. Timing was absolutely terrible. I commented on that my dinner would be cold and he just laughed.

If there is ever a time you need to clear your sinuses, I recommend getting the tuna nachos. However, there is a larger problem at hand. The host and waiter do not seem to appreciate dad jokes as much as they should, and that's problematic. After my date had dropped an absolute nuke of a dad joke, it received little to no appreciation, and I'm talking "the mother load of all bombs" type of dad joke. It just saddened my heart to have witnessed that. I left that nice establishment thinking one question and one question only, what has happened to humanity?

We went to the Liberty Hound right before a concert and we couldn’t have been more pleased with the experience. We added 1 to our reservation last minute and they accommodated without any fuss.

The drinks were wonderful; appetizers were delicious (get the tuna nachos), and the dinner portions were very generous. Prices were reasonable. Service was great!

Will be returning!

The chicken wings were the worst I've had in 30 years. I specifically asked for "extra crispy", and they arrived undercooked to a rubberlike consistency. I will not order them again, nor will i recommend them.

Gray food and huge portions at really reasonable prices. Nice craft beer menu. In the summer, this would be a great place to hang out as a stop to a waterfront walk! It is also super close to KeyBank for a meal before an event.

Went there before the Sabres game as it's our yearly tradition. Great food. I had the clam chowder and buffalo chicken wedge salad...delicious! My wife had chicken and brie sandwich with fries and said the same. Good mixed drinks and decent draft selection. 5th visit and will definitely be back again

If I could give more than 5 stars I would. My family and I were coming in from out of town for a concert across the street through a bad snow storm. We were 2 hours late for our reservation and they still sat us, got us fed and out the door before the show started. Every other restaurant in the area was booked do to the show. They went above and beyond. They were friendly, fast and the food was unbelievably delicious. I will stop here anytime I'm in town and a HUGE thank you to the staff from myself and my family.

Really good meal in the middle of January.
This is a great spot for the summertime being right on the marina and part of the navel park. But even in the dead of winter, cool spot and always a good meal. Little tight, as the indoor space really isn’t all that big, but comfortable and not too loud considering that. Great service and was able to eat in just under an hour without being rushed. Confirmed that this is a solid restaurant, not just for its location and outdoor seating, but overall a great buffalo staple
