About The Liberty - Southend

The Liberty is Charlotte’s first Gastro pub. Our goal is to provide great food and drink at a reasonable cost. The first Gastropubs started in London as many top chefs turned away from the high costs of fine dining, wanting to do their food in a more casual setting.
We also share this vision. Our menu offers elevated comfort foods and pub fare using the best ingredients available. We serve 19 hand crafted beers on tap (plus PBR!), and another 60 by the bottle. Our wine list is carefully chosen to give you 30 affordable wines by the glass. Naturally, we also have a full selection of spirits as well.
We don't have a dress code, or for that matter, an ounce of pretension. We are casual enough for jeans and a tee shirt, but nice enough for a first date.
We are a neighborhood establishment, sitting at the gateway to South End and Dilworth, with a light rail stop in our parking lot.
We are unlike anything else in Charlotte.
Welcome to The Liberty.

The lamb burger was delicious. The beverages, food, and check were brought out to us quickly.

This past Saturday at 1:30 PM The Liberty was hopping. Had to wait for table to clear. Food was excellent: French Dip burger done perfectly, but 2 small hiccups, au jus tasted canned, side salad was very small (much smaller than the Blakeney location), my wife's fish sandwich was a hit. Best of all were the cocktails made with a local moonshine equivalent with ginger. Ginger was present in first drink, but not in the second one. Still tasted great.

We were greeted pleasantly by the host but felt extremely hurried thru our dinner by the server. One of our three meals arrived room temperature. We've been here before and had a better experience. Maybe tonight was just an off night. With so many other choices in the area I can't say we'll be back anytime soon.

Our waitress was absolutely great. Our only issue was that our main course came out before we were totally finished with our appetizer. This is a pet peeve of mine. I feel that many restaurants are having issues with spacing meals out correctly.

Besides that, our food was absolutely delicious. We both had salmon for the main course which was the best I've had in a long time (and I eat salmon a couple of times per week). Our appetizers were mussels and a salad with fried oysters. Both were excellent. And the dessert I had was flourless chocolate cake. It tasted extremely good but was slightly dry. We will definitely be back to The Liberty!

Service was slow and inconsistent. Tables that arrived after ours got their drinks first from the same server. Mine took over 25 mins to arrive and it was only an IPA from a tap. It was Queen's Feast Restaurant week so busy but still. The food was OK but not compelling possibly due to the 3 for $30 menu and higher volume. For example the salad dressing on my first course was very tasty but the rest the salad was off from the prosciuto to the veggies. Comments were similar from the couple with us. There were good tastes but for example the grits were watery. This theme continued through all the courses.

Huge problem checking in. The hostess told me we did not have a reservation. I showed her my Open Table confirmation and she told me that their system sometimes did not sync with Open Table and if I used the app I should always call to confirm!!! Then she said that we were “lucky” that she had a table and could seat us. This is a big problem for anyone that uses OT, plus her attitude put the blame on me rather than their system! After that, the food was good and our server was great.

The restaurant was relatively empty, yet we couldn’t get a reservation until 8:45. The first course was good, the chicken wings were excellent. The main courses left lots to be desired. Portions were small and very, very salty (all four people had different entrees and we all had the same complaints). Each person at our table had a different dessert, 2 of the four were still frozen (cheesecake), the flourless cake was so hard and dry it wasn’t eaten, and the pecan pie was very good- by far the best of the four.

Although it was restaurant week I felt the portion on the entree was weak. The Bacon wrapped scallops with creamy grits was served with only two scallops and the grits were dry and clumpy. The calamari fries were cold And the cheesecake was served still frozen. The idea behind restaurant week is for people to be turned on to a new place they may not go to and by word of mouth drum up business for the place. Also maybe can't afford some places. The liberty should be embarrassed to serve two scallops for an entree. They would get money back ten fold by not scimping on food because it may be a bit cheaper for the week. I will never return.

Have eaten at the Liberty many times. Food was good as usual, the shrimp and grits starter and main courses (chicken and dumplings, salmon) were all very good. The flourless chocolate cake and pecan pie were just ok. Service was excellent. On the negative side, the tables show wear and the window blinds have a substantial amount of dust on them. One of our water glasses was dirty. As this restaurant group opens more locations, it seems this particular location is not as clean or as well maintained.

The food was okay except they ran out of the main menu item I came for. And I think something is wrong with their ice machine because everything glass of water that came out, there was black stuff mixed with the ice. I don’t even want to think of what it could have been. But the food was pretty tasty.

This is one of our favorite restaurants but, the last two times the service was not great. First off, we made reservations and were sat in the bar area. Both times we had reservations and this happened. Why am I making a reservation so I can be sat in the noisy bar area? This time our server seemed overwhelmed and was not super attentive. Luckily the food was fantastic, as always and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. But improvement is needed in the above mentioned areas.

The hosts were rude and unaccommodating- four tables in the entire place had patrons (three tables all crammed together and one other in another area) but they would not allow us to move from our table in the middle of the walkway because they were "fully booked." By the time we left, there were only 4-5 more tables now with patrons, so still plenty of space for us to have been moved. We were so closely packed (two other couples and ourselves) that we all just kind of decided to have dinner together since there was no sense of having our own space. If the restaurant had been packed, I think most of this could have been understood, but they were far from full. One of the ladies to our left ordered the tomato soup with bacon and cheddar slider, and when she inquired as to when her slider would be coming out she was told, "Oh yeah, it doesn't come with that." No apology was offered or replacement attempted. The food we did get was yummy, but they didn't mention that the chocolate cake had walnuts in it, which seems like something people should know. Overall, the people hosting/serving were, at best, indifferent and difficult, but the food was good.

The absolute worst restaurant/dining experience I have ever encountered. 15 person table booked 3 days in advance. Table was not greeted by a server for 45 minutes. Told us they didn’t have clean glasses to give us drinks. The appetizers were brought out and we were then told they didn’t have any clean silverware. We spoke with the manager (Brad) 4 times and he just didn’t seem to care very much. He told us they were short staffed, although the restaurant was not even remotely packed. The food came out and all the burgers were undercooked. Our entire meal was comped, but this is the most poorly run restaurant at which I have ever dined. Would never return and will make sure to tell others to do the same. I would recommend McDonald’s over this place.

Looking for dinner options on NYE, I booked the only time available which was at 9:00pm. When we arrived, we stood at the lobby host desk for 5 minutes before anyone approached us. A lady finally came up and said they were closing at 9 and had no reservations even though I had the confirmation through Open Table. Felt a little embarrassed in front of my date and had to scramble to find last minute dinner options which led to us sitting at a bar at a nearby restaurant. I would make the suggestion that they communicate their adjusted hours for holidays so this doesn’t happen to others.

Three of us went for Thanksgiving. Variety of choices for Prix fix meal was great, but did not match those that were advertised exactly. First course: skimpy on the proteins named on the menu (one too tiny trout/crab cake; only two oysters in that one, and only two pickled shrimp) but flavor and texture was great. Second course: plentiful, delicious food. Third course: good variety of choices, but the bread pudding won the admiration of all at the table.

Will probably go again for regular menu.

We went for Thanksgiving & they had a special menu for that. There were several choices for each course and they were really good. I got the crispy oyster salad for the 1st course & it was very good. The problem was they only gave you 2 small oysters. Not enough to hardly taste. Other than that we loved the food. Desserts were very good.

I've eaten here on a few occasions and it never gets beyond middle of the road. This meal was for lunch and although the restaurant was not busy the service was extremely slow. The waitress seemed disinterested. We both ordered rather routine burgers with fries and although tasty, the blah atmosphere in the restaurant combined with an indifferent wait staff detracted from the experience.
