    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!

    Waitress was good and friendly, noise level even in dining room made it difficult to have conversations. Food was nicely presented, portions were not large, men in our party thought they would have liked a little larger portion.

    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.

    The restaurant came highly recommended so we were excited to try it for my husbands birthday. We moved our reservation up due to inclement weather and when we were sat, there was only one other table in the dining room. The food got to the table within ten minutes and we were done eating in thirty. The food was just OK. I was a little disappointed at how quick things went especially since we were trying to enjoy a birthday and have a relaxing evening. I don’t know if this is because we were the only ones there or not? This might be a positive for families but not for a date night.

    We have eaten at Liberty Station several times and ordered carry out meals as well. Tonight’s meal was a bit disappointing — the spareribs were dry and chewy rather than moist and tender. We’ll be back but hope for improved BBQ in the future.

    We loved Liberty Station! We had 4 UW students to take to dinner and found Liberty Station on Open Table. The guys loved it! It was great to get away from campus (just a quick drive), the food was excellent, serivce, staff all great! Also a great choice of beer and drinks! The guys will go back with their friends and we will definitely be going back next time we visit Madison!

    Giving this place a 4/5 rating. Food, cleanliness of the restaurant, and staff was very good. Only negative thing to say was we definitely felt a little rushed at the restaurant. Would come again on my next visit to Madison.

    I had the ribs, corn bread and cheese curds. The ribs were excellent very smoky nice glaze, the cheese curds for some of the best I’ve had and the honey butter was really good on the cornbread. I would like to try other options. Also conveniently my hotel and a Starbucks in the parking lot couldn’t of made for a better late evening and early morning!

    Great service by an extraordinary server. Food was good, price was high. I suppose nice cutlery, plates, and a cloth napkin are worth it for some. It was for us.

    Had a great dinner at LS. The roll up doors were open, the weather was great and so was the experience. Had the brisket quesadilla and tots. Both are delicious and the serving was generous. Hubby had the brisket grilled cheese and tomato soup. Suffice it to say he was part of the clean plate club. As very clean and service was great!
