Setting was drab. Some kind of smell was present. Limited menu. STeak tips were good.
Place needs to be brightened up with new furniture and painted in light colors and less tacky decorations.

Was a bit disappointed after wanting to try Liberty Publick House for so long. We only saw our waitress twice (once when she took our order and once when she brought our food). Our drinks didn’t come out until our food did and she never asked how everything was going. The food came cold which is interesting because my burger was burnt. It has a really cool eclectic vibe and the background music was great, just wish the service and food could catch up with the feel of the placer.

French onion soup was watery and Mac and cheese had an aftertaste like the metal skillet it was baked in. The fish dinner and the bread were delicious.

Very good beer selection. Food was good, but fried items were overdone, perhaps old oil. Steak tips were excellent. Live music is a nice feature but too loud. I'd return for another visit.

Our party of 6 loved how this restaurant is decorated, and it had a lively and fun atmosphere . Our waitress was very friendly and took good care of us. The food was slow in coming to the table, and our waitress and the manager apologized for that. We were enjoying ourselves and in no rush, so it wasn't an issue. We will go back and would recommend this to friends.

3rd time visiting restaurant. Slightly disappointed this time. Waitress was not attentive, waited a long time to place order. When dinner arrived we we missing one order. They ran out of coleslaw and didn’t offer anything to replace it. The fish and chips order was mostly chips, the fish was about the size of a chicken tender. The sandwiches were good.

First time here. Friday night at 6:30. Not busy, looks like it would be a good bar. I had Checked the menu out online, but when I arrived I found there were many items missing. Should update the online info. My son and I ordered the Mac and cheese bites as an appetizer ($8). There were quite a lot of them, they had a corn dog type batter with a small amount of filling.
We ordered burgers which were VERY good. The only issue was the $14 price tag.
They offer a $5 burger for lunch, so I would definitely go back for lunch!

Service was excellent-no wait (full disclosure initially was pretty quiet). Our waitress was very plesant and attentive. All around, foods and drinks were very good with a good selection of beers. The food selection was also good burgers, salads, soups, and full dinners. They offered grass fed beef for their burgers which for me is a plus.
The restaurant itself self was nicely decorated with a cozy sitting area around a wood burning stove. I do suspect as the restaurant is an open concept with fairly high ceilings, it would get pretty noisy when busy. Plenty of TV's to watch your favorite sports which you could view just about anywhere you sat
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised and felt it was better than your average pub.
Would definitely go back and would recommend to others

I've been here for burgers (and great local beers) before and that's all very good (reflected in stars above), but this review is specific to the Summer Cod. Loved it! Was it super fancy pants with all sorts of weird spices in the potatoes? No. It was classically done and elegantly served. Super fresh fish wrapped in just enough summer squash/zucchini to give it a bit more texture and served with a lovely white wine sauce that allowed the fish to shine. The asparagus was perfectly done and the whipped potatoes were truly melt in your mouth good - both perfect accompaniments to the cod. Will be back for this dish for sure. Sad it took me all summer before I tried it!

Ok, we have given this new restaurant several chances expecting that they would work out the startup issues, but after multiple visits, tonight was probably our last. Drink order was wrong...someone please teach the bartender how to make a dirty martini. It took an hour to have our first course salads arrive. Two of us received our burnt entrees about 15 minutes later and our third guest had to wait an additional fifteen minutes. The waitress apologized multiple times and comped us two beverages and one entree. The concept is good. The decor is good. Until this evening, the food has been good. The staff is killing the restaurant and whoever ran the kitchen tonight should be replaced. Very sad about this but I wonder if the owner is paying attention.

It's an attractive place. The a/c doesn't work great though so it was rather warm and it was somewhat loud. The chicken wings were good, the steak and cheese spring rolls were of the frozen variety and not great. The lobster mac and cheese had plenty of lobster but the mac was pretty flavorless. We'll give it another try, though. They had a very big beer menu so maybe it would be a good fit for people that like local craft beers. Also, it's a good music venue.

I always love coming here. The restaurant is locally owned, so the detail and care really shows. The food is amazing and the portions are large. The beer menu is stacked. We had a guest with special dietary needs and the kitchen was extremely accommodating. Try the meatballs!

I wish the food and service matched the beauty of this new restaurant. The restaurant itself along with the 9/11 Memorial out front - our expectations were high. And it's Mother's Day!

Too many people serving - one for drinks, another for bread, another took the order, another bringing out the food....it all lead to confusion on all on who was doing what. We were a table of 6 and 3 people weren't happy with this food. Not terrible - just not up to expectations.

This spot is new and local for us so we gave it a try. Hopefully with some tweaks - it can live up to the beauty of the interior and exterior.

We went on a Saturday night and made a reservation at 7pm for dinner. We both ordered salads, a Caesar and the Wedge Salad. We both got the grilled salmon on top which was delicious! We’re trying to eat a bit healthier. It was wonderful to have so many salad options with either grilled fish or meat (steak/chicken) on top.

The fresh baked bread was yummy...it was crusty on the outside, soft and gooey on the inside, and freshly baked with whipped butter on the side. The service and waitress were amazing and she was a sweetheart.

The drink menu had a large selection, however, it just didn’t have my personal favorite, which is Prosecco. I ordered a Strawberry Margarita, but they didn’t have the strawberry mix. The waitress asked me if crushed strawberries would be okay and I said fine. The only thing I didn’t like was the drink. However, the owner brought us our meals and then offered us a complimentary bottle of flat Water to taste in a beautiful blue bottle. It was very nice of him and the flat water was cold and crisp tasting.

I would definitely dine there again...the burgers 🍔 passing by our table on the trays looked amazing! Next time! Nice place for a casual meal, biz meal or a date! 💕
