    Traffic and parking were intense. We were sitting at our table for literally 20 minutes and my friend had to go inside and request a server. The food was very good. The noise from the planes was very distracting. For the most part I love being in Liberty Station, but not this time. The food and service were not special enough that I would come back.

    Didn't need the reservation we made, due to a low volume of folks, but the patio filled up a little later in the day from what we saw. Good food, good service, nice atmosphere. Couldn't have asked for more. Great first impression. :)

    It was raining so we ate inside where one very loud woman sucked up all the quiet. Our server was friendly and efficient and the food was excellent from the Ahi Tuna Salad to the Grilled Chicken sandwich and seafood sliders. Great French fries!

    Our Sunday Brunch was a disappointment. They put us at a table next to a broken heater on a windy and cold morning (this past Sunday); coffee was barely warm. They brought the appetizer out with the meal instead of prior and we had to chase down the hostess just to get silverware. The pancakes were dry and eggs salty. The steak and eggs Benedict was frankly a bad combination of ingredients. When we politely explained our disappointment to the waitress, she appreciated our feedback and then never came back; a different water started serving us. Don't plan to go back to this Resturant.

    Food was bland and the skirt steak was not cooked well (also was disproportionately served) compared to the second skirt steak order we got. The cookie from the ice cream sandwich was hard. The only good items were the French fries and the truffle butter bread rolls.

    They recently changed their menu and removed our favorite item, the turkey wrap. I wish their menu was a bit more diverse and included more lunch type items.

    Food was okay. Service was pretty low value. They turned the heaters off on us without asking because I assumed they closed soon. My chicken was definitely overcooked. The lobster sliders were amazing though. Cute place good ambiance but the planes flying over are very loud.

    Delightful waiter, very attentive and professional. We sat at an outdoor table. Only one space heater. Could have used more due to low temperature. Cocktails were good, but the food just OK, nothing spectacular. We ordered the sausage & mushroom flat bread, the grilled turkey wrap (the wrap was dry and brittle), bacon & shrimp tacos, the cilantro lime shrimp lettuce wraps, fish and chips, and the Presley bowl. None of these stood out, except the seafood sliders, those were tasty, but they fell apart easily and were messy to eat.

    The outdoor seating has many different options for seating. Plenty of outdoor heaters. Great for dogs (we had 5 with us). Food was great! Bloody Mary was also very good and is served with a piece of bacon, an olive and a cube of cheese. Ricotta and orange pancakes were also good and served with bacon and eggs. Bacon is super good and the portions are large.

    Arrived about 30 minutes early for an 8:00 pm reservation and was seated quickly. Food was decent, nothing to rave about. Service was glacial and server treated us as an afterthought and seemed like he had clocked out for the day and was just going through the motions of providing service to our party. As stated in other reviews, plane noise is prevalent at all times which is not the restaurant’s fault just the way it is with Liberty Station. Note that they tack on a 4% surcharge so up to you if you want to tip on top of that or take it into consideration when leaving a tip.

    Nestled in the heart of LIBERTY STATUION, The Presley is a brunch paradise that effortlessly combines delectable cuisine, inviting outdoor seating, and a dog-friendly atmosphere. My wife and my recent weekend brunch experience at this hidden gem left me delighted, eager to let people know and to visit again!

    I enjoyed the outdoor environment and the fireplaces/heaters all around when I was meeting some mom friends for dinner. The waitress was helpful in giving good recommendations to someone who asked. I ordered the chicken pesto Flatbread which I enjoyed. 2 others had wine and 1 had ginger beer with their meals. 1 enjoyed her seared ahi salad, 1 didn't enjoy the seafood sliders, and the other got fish and chips. Friendly service and our waitress kindly split the bill when we asked

    Th horseradish crusted salmon was expertly prepared and absolutely delicious! We were a group of 6 and everyone enjoyed their meals. It was raining outside, so that severely limits the restaurant seating ability since mostly outdoors. Due to the rain they did "last call" at 7:15 pm, which was a little weird, but otherwise it was great.
