Acclaimed Executive Chef Anthony Apolinar heads the kitchen. Chef has created a menu that includes creative “shareable” appetizers, pasta and salads. Entrees feature fresh seafood, steaks and chops. Liberty Station smokes many of their high quality meats on a custom made smoker, prominently displayed on the west side patio of the restaurant.

They have things down since the remodel from Market Street Kitchen. Only downside was air conditioning g issues on a very hot Sunday.

The happy hour menu is spectacular. We went on Taco Tuesday, and the shrimp, fish and pork tacos were some of the best we'd ever had. Service was superb.

Overall the meals were good. Prime Rib excellent, rainbow trout excellent, salad excellent. Brisket was fatty and smoke flavor was "ok." Would not recommend the brisket. Wait staff was excellent. Beer on draft was a little pricey at 6.00 for 16 oz pour (especially in the summer).
Will come back, and try something different.

First time visit and I was impressed with the menu. Tried the Green Chile Stew and it was excellent. Next trip will try the barbecue and see how it measures up to my Texas roots.

You don't get a lot for the money and quality is hit and miss. The firecraker shrimp is the best I've had as well as the fish tacos (but you don't get much for the price). The prime rib sandwich no flavor and just didn't work. The au jus tasted like grease and the cole slaw had no flavor. Tasted like salt-free mayonaise and cabbage. My date had the smoked brisket and barbeque pork, and those were excellent! Their St. Louis ribs are tough. They also have a good hamburger.

Very friendly and waiters waitresses and bartenders. The happy hour food is excellent and can be used as a meal. They have a lot of summer specials with a new one every day that I highly recommend. I really like the brisket quesadilla. Tenders make a fine drink.

Sunday Brunch was excellent. All six of us loved our meal and we all ordered something different. The food was fresh and cooked to perfection. We'd all definitely return - for brunch, lunch or dinner. It was an amazing surprise that kids eat free on Sunday! Liked the fact that they have something special offered each day.

Liberty Station is consistently the best brisket we have had. All the sides are a great compliment and very delicious....especially the baked beans - AZ style and cornbread. So happy to have a neighborhood favorite in walking distance to home. Great Job with National BBQ Day!

This has become a favorite go to shop during our four months in Scottsdale . The staff is always exceptionally, cheerful and accommodating. While the smoked meats are the feature and are terrific I was pleasantly surprised to find the trout was outstanding and the fish and chips above average. I haven't found anything on the menu that was not well prepared.

Great restaurant. Great food. Good service. You can talk to the pitmaster and had to try the BBQ platter with 3 different kinds of meat. Was incredible. But $42 for platter seems a bit high for a pound (ish) of meat

Great food & drinks. Service was superb. My only regret about Liberty Station is that the bathrooms are unisex. I know the millennials like that, but I like bathrooms dedicated to either men or women. This will keep me from dining at LS as often as I otherwise would. Hey LS, please change your bathrooms.

I have never had better service in my life! These servers were so on point, it was unbelievable! The blue chz dressing is delish as is the bbq sauce...all the bbq meats were...ok. I did love that the pork shoulder wasnt stewy, but it was a tad dry. The chicken strips tasted like fish, the noodles were not good, the salad was gross (other than the dressing), the location is fun and beautiful...but we paid nearly 100 dollars for a below ok meal. But like I said, the servers were wonderful...all of them. Maybe it was just an off day.

I wanted to like Liberty Station so much because it's close to our house but the food is just average and the champagne vinaigrette was awful. If I cannot get a good salad then I'd rather be eating the delicious Asian salad at the All American Modern Sports Grill across the street.

Went here Saturday night with a group of friends and sat on the patio which has nice ambiance considering it is street side. The men were dismayed since there no TV to watch March Madness on outside but there were heaters to keep the women happy. Everyone seemed to enjoy what they ordered except that a couple of people wanted the prime rib dip which they said were out of but the special that night was prime rib. Hum, strange. My husband and I ordered the BBQ combo platter and the ribs and pork shoulder were perfectly cooked but the brisket was dry and tough; it certainly needed to be cooked longer. The BBQ sauce is more of tangy sauce so I wasn't fan since I like a sweeter sauce but that's just me. My husband didn't mind it at all. The sides of sweet potato fries and coleslaw were very good but I care for the corn bread; it had funky aftertaste besides that it was cold and dried out. Even the soft butter didn't help it. Service was good no complaints there especially since they were busy.

I ordered the beef brisket and was horrified at what came on the plate. Large thick and irregular shapes of tough meat lacking any flavor and an absence of a smoke ring. Very disappointing. It was like eating shoe leather. I have eaten at the location off of Carefree Highway many times and loved it. I’ll not go to the Market St location again.
