Seafood

Liberty Kitchen & Oysterette (LKRO) prides itself in it’s Oyster Bar. The multiple use seating at and around the Oysterette is inviting and friendly. The huge oyster, fresh seafood and whole fish display showcases seasonality and the vastness of the seafood offerings at LKRO. A traditional Japanese Robata Grill and a vertical 'Trompo' Grill are part of the Oysterette’s flexibility in a small space making the 'mini-kitchen' capable of producing freshly shucked oysters, grilled oysters, sushi, seafood towers and fresh carved tacos.

Moving into the main kitchen, the menu is just as wide and deep with a variety of local and regional seafood dishes and local Texas Beef. Our desire, as always, is to have a little something delicious for everyone and a menu for every palate as well as daily and weekly special features inspired by the bounty of available produce, meats and seafood in the Gulf Coast and beyond.

    Amazing food! The service was flawless. We were just completely shocked when the bill arrived at the cost of things such as drinks. The others I was there with agreed that the cost was too high to return. We absolutely loved our experience, but it’s not wallet-friendly.

    Great food but their prices have gone crazy. It was always a little pricey compared to similar restaurants but I was a little shocked at how expensive everything on the menu had gotten. Understand that inflation is bad today but it seems like they have raised prices much higher than others.

    Miscommunication with our waiter led to not having the appetizer we ordered and entree' was just ok. The grits were not hot and the prosciutto was salty and over cooked on the prosciutto benedict. My prior visit was much better TBH.

    We sat outside. Complimentary valet is awesome, we tipped. Brunch was really good. The regular menu is also open, so feel free to ask for it. Drinks are weak as far as alcohol content, but tastes good. Our server was very patient, and all our orders came out hot and sizzling. We dined outdoors when the weather was very pleasant. But the sun eventually came out, and it got hot!! This is my 2nd Liberty Kitchen experience, and I look forward to coming back.

    I don’t know what happened to this place, but I have the desire to spit to get the flavor of burnt oil and the worst filet mignon out of my mouth (seriously, how do you screw up searing a piece of meat?). Service was good and the bar was excellent, but $200 for inedible main courses is a joke.

    Service was great, table was perfect, but the food wasn’t very good. It’s been a while since we ate there, but the quality was off this time. We shared deviled eggs, a roasted oyster dish and a halibut special. The halibut was the only item that we really liked. The others didn’t seem fresh. We’ll go back to give it another shot because it’s a pretty place in the neighborhood.
