Food and service were great. We had the fried green tomatoes and firecracker shrimp for appetizers and they were both amazing. Also had the bbq shrimp and pasta bolognese as our entrees and both were excellent.

The best part of Liberty Station is the Carolina bbq sauce. We tried the pulled pork and the brisket. Both were good but not very hot since they cook/smoke the meats earlier in the day. If we visit again i would ask them to heat the meats. Sweet potato fried were yummy and nice and hot.

It was good. The walleye was fresh and delicious. The salmon my husband has was just ok. The orange bbq sauce was described as a glaze and in fact it was just a small stipe of sauce on top.

Cod was not good, maybe undercooked. The quesideas would be better with a good salsa or sauce. The tomato soup approached a tomato paste consistency. We had been there 2 nights before and all was excellent.

Although the location was inviting and the restaurant staff very friendly, my wife’s plate was lacking in flavor. She ordered the fried chicken which came with mashed potatoes and coleslaw. Nothing on her plate had any flavor. Sadly the mash potatoes were not only flavorless, they were extremely dry. My dish and our daughters dish were acceptable. Maybe she just ordered the wrong dish.

Went on Saturday night at 5:45 pm with a reservation. We were immediately seated. Our server was busy but came back when she could. She did disappear for what seemed a long time at one point but in general service was good. I got the smaller size of brisket with salad and sweet potato fries. It was all very good, and I took 1/2 the meat home even with the smaller serving. My friend had a pulled pork sandwich. The bun was way too big but she liked her food too. All in all it was a good experience and I would come back.

It's great having a barbecue spot in the North Scottsdale neighborhood. The food is very good and the service and ambiance are top notch. My husband loved the green chili brisket stew. Definitely making this one of our go-to spots. Very comfortable place with lots of great seating options. The outdoor tables looked like a wonderful option.
