    It was very busy when we got there, so we ended up having to part around the back of the hotel quite a ways away. Parking lot clearly isn’t big enough for the establishment. Our waiter got us our drinks and then our order. After our order arrived, he did not stop back at our table until we had finished, and even then we had to wave him down, which is unfortunate because my tomato soup was basically just a bowl of marinara sauce and I would have loved to swap it for something else. The waiter did take the soup and drinks off our tab, but even after that was all taken off, it was expensive. My fiancé got a burger and fries, I got a large house salad, which was also disappointing, as it was $14 for lettuce, shredded cheese out of the package, cucumbers, and a couple halved cherry tomatoes. Overall, not a good experience and definitely won’t be going back.

    Food and service is awesome. Lots of variety on the menu...finding a few things that look/sound good shouldn't be a problem. Only downside is that it gets very noisy when it's busy so it can be a challenge to have conversation.

    Note: sitting on the porch does not include any happy hour specials! Be sure NOT to choose the porch for reservations if you'd like to take advantage of these specials.

    Too loud! Very difficult to carry on any type of conversation. Fireplace wasn’t on. Drinks served in tiny cups. Food was pretty good. Mediocre experience.

    Liberty Station - MadisonResponded on November 9, 2022Thank you for taking the time to write a review! I apologize we fell short of your expectations, however visiting us on a "concert day" at the Alliant is very different that our typical atmosphere. Try us again on a normal day and I'm sure you will love the ambiance we designed.

    The restaurant and service were both wonderful. The food was good, but not great. I had the brisket grilled cheese with tomato soup side, and ordered a side of fries. The brisket grilled cheese felt pre-made and warmed up. It looked mass-produced. The tomato soup tasted like a thick and chunky marinara, and felt like perhaps something g to serve with mozzarella sticks. The fries were cooked well, but had an interesting seasoning that made them taste sweet and sugary to me.

    We’ve dined here multiple times & very much enjoy the food & the service. We had a reservation & had to wait a few minutes for our table- it was very busy after a badger game. Then waited another 10 minutes after being seated for our server to get our drink order. Another party came & sat down at the table we were at (high top fireplace table) without a reservation, thinking it was an extension of the bar. They then grabbed a bus boy & asked for some drinks. Our waitress had to take on these 3 patrons even though they skipped ahead of all the people on the list waiting for a table. This didn’t help the speed of service. Food was very good as usual but the disorganized situation at the front door- & people being allowed to just sit wherever made the atmosphere not very enjoyable. We’ll give it a try again, but not on a Badger Saturday.

    The food here is always amazing. I love their fish and chips, and the shimp po-boy. Others in my group are huge fans of their smoked brisket and chicken and they offer it in many forms. I do wish the fries/frites were crispier. But the servers are efficient, friendly, and very helpful with any questions you have about their menu items. We sat at the high-top fireplace and loved it; perfect on a cool, crisp fall day. A favorite go-to place for me and my group of friends!

    Emily was our waitress and recommended Nachos for us three to start. It was delicious especially when you reached the pork on the bottom. Two of us order the prime rib sandwich and it was absolutely amazing!! My brother the had pork stew even though a shareable. He enjoyed all of it!!

    Food was good . Definitely understaffed. We were very happy in beginning. After not getting food for a hour and a half. Asked and it was obvious our server forgot to put order in. They made it right and comped our meal. He was trying to serve and bartend. Very good just overwhelmed Would go back and give them another chance. The drinks were good.

    We were seated and had to wait at least 5 minutes before the waitress came. She took out drink order and it was 15 minutes before she brought our drinks and took our order. It was then an hour plus before we got our food. We were there a total of 2 hours and 15 minutes just because of the slow service.

    We were seated right next to the kitchen whilst the room was empty except one table of guests by the windows. Waitress was friendly but never refilled our beverages and seem a little flustered at a few basic questions. Our chicken wing share appetizer looked delicious but wings were a bit dry. My regular fries were limp and over seasoned and my friends sweet potato fries were soggy. I tried the corn muffin and it was dry. Our sandwiches were okay but not impressive in any way. We ordered the S’mores tart. The crust was soggy, the chocolate seemed a bit too bitter but the meringue was good. So all in all there is no desire to return to this establishment.

    We’ve always liked Liberty Station but it’s often too noisy for us on Saturday nights. This time we went on Sunday evening and it was much quieter and more relaxed. And our meals came faster.
