We love getting together with friends out on the patio. We enjoy the live music out in the fresh air and having good food and drinks with prompt, courteous service.

Arrived at 6 PM for dinner (had a 6 PM reservation), but we not served our dinner until 6:50, prettt long time considering we didn’t order appetizers.

When we arrived before we could get a word in the host said theres a 20 min wait. I explained that we had booked a reservation through opentable. He said that the liberty hound wasnt using open table anymore. We agreed to wait but after a little bit decided to ask the bartender if we could eat at the bar. She said absolutely. She was very friendly and prompt. She waited on us. The blackened grouper sandwich was served warm and wasnt blackened at all. It was still tasty but would have been better hot. My wife's beef on weck was huge, she enjoyed it. We had a couple specialty cocktails as well. Both were good. Open table did give me extra points for this visit bc the reservation wasnt acknowledged.

The food and service at the Liberty Hound were good, but PARKING is the issue when dining at this restaurant which is INSIDE the Naval& Military Museum at Buffalo Canalside . We were lucky to get one of the very few nearby street paring spots up the block from the restaurant, It would have been a very LONG walk to the restaurant if we had not. The Lobster Roll that I had for lunch was very good!

I was very disappointed in the menu. It was not what I saw on line. The drinks were not good at all. Four people at my table didn't even finish them. Where we were sitting was very crowded. It was hard to get out of the chairs when we needed to. Overall I would not recommend this restaurant and I will not be going back.

The restaurant was short-staffed for the crowd. It was almost fifteen minutes before our server came to our table to greet us.
My date ordered a beer, and after three beers being "out of stock", he finally settled for one available. After 25 minutes and not receiving the beer, I asked the waiter about the status of his drink. The waiter replied that the reason he didn't bring it out is because they were "out" of that one as well, but he forgot to tell us.
Shrimp cocktail took twenty minutes to come to the table.
Food was good, but not outstanding. The grilled chicken on my salad was cold, likely having been prepared earlier and refrigerated.
Limited menu.
We were attending a sporting event that started at 7:30PM. I made 5:15PM reservations - assuming we'd have more than enough time to walk the Navy yard before the event. However, we didn't get out of the restaurant until nearly 7PM. All we ordered was shrimp cocktail, a sandwich, and a salad. No heavy preparation.
We wanted to check it out, but now that we have, we likely won't return given the first experience.

Had a 6:00 reservation. Didn’t get seated until 6:40! The food was tasty but overpriced for what it was. The sandwiches were probably the best deal since it included one side. Although they were nothing special. But the eggplant dish was a rip off. Tasted great but came with only bread. Pasta is cheap so including a side of pasta would have been a cheap side. Our server was not attentive. Had to repeatedly ask for water and tea refills. Never did refill our iced tea even though we asked him twice. On the plus side, it is walking distance to Key Bank Center. Parking was hard to find.

Delicious food. Unique location. They were pretty busy as it was a night where there was a concert at the arena. Would like to go back and see if the service is better on a slower night.

I would recommend that a reservation be made since inside seating is limited.
I had a reservation but was not seated until 15 min. After arrival....could not go to the bar because it was full and was not offered any other alternative (cold and rainy outside) for having a place to stand and have a drink. I am glad we were not in a hurry....

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!

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.

Several good options on the menu, sometimes other specials offered. Great craft draft beer selection! My favorite is the Buffalo Chicken Wedge salad. Quick service, kitchen turnaround is fast, great before a hockey game. Only open game nights in the winter.

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

The baked cod was great! The Reuben special fell flat and really didn’t have much flavor.
