When requesting outdoor seating we were originally seated at a very uncomfortable high top while carrying bags. We asked to be relocated but you may need to specify on your reservation to have the couch seating.

Hi Sandi, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience. We are only allotted a certain amount of seating options through Opentable. The couches are limited and for larger parties. We try to honor all requests, but can not guarantee them as is stated in our policies. We are all working our best through this trying time and do hope that your seating did not take away from your dining itself. Thank you again,

While I’ve been in town my buddy has not been since the beginning of the pandemic.
Going to Liberty was an excellent idea to gently welcome him back to real life
The setting is great. Nicely done. It was chilly And it was suggested that the heat be turned on w/o us asking.
Food? Really good wings. Sauce is served in the side. Get the sweet chili.
My salmon was cooked perfectly. My buddy had fish & chips. I loved his chips.
Overall fantastic experience. Oh. Try the on tap rose. A tad sweet but went nicely with food.

The liberty provides a serviceable dining experience. I wouldn’t recommend it for an intimate dinner date but rather a place to grab a quick bite or few drinks. I had the New York strip and my partner had a chicken sandwich neither were exceptional but not bad either. We started with friend Mac and cheese balls which neither of us enjoyed. Also our table was very small. Too small



On the brighter side the staff is friendly and attentive also the drinks were tasty

The food was really good, but I had to keep going to find the server. When you're doing bottomless brunch you shouldn't have to seek out your server to get your mimosa, as you're on a timer. Instead of leaving a carafe where the 2 of us could serve ourselves we had to keep looking for the server for drinks. Also, on a table for 2 they added in gratuity which is not listed anywhere and is not a common practice. That's not cool.

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience. We are sorry we did not live up to your expectations. Did you make any staff or manager aware of your lack of service? We would have immediately remedied any and all issues. Sadly, it actually is stated on the brunch menu that any table that participates in bottomless will be charged auto gratuity. Im sorry if that was missed. Again we do apologize and appreciate the feedback.

We went for GoGoGadget & JackBarrow burlesque. It was amazing! Worth the trip just for their happy vibes and gorgeous energy. Food was sub par. Drinks and service were awesome! Delicious and worth every penny. Our server Alex and .... I think his name was Russ- mgr. downstairs( Sorry! If I was wrong. I did say that the drinks were good, lol. ) were so hospitable. Will be back again and again.

I went for a fantastic Freaky Follies show and a great dinner on Friday night and The Liberty delivered on both counts (after a late start to the show). I made the mistake of arriving too early since they opened the Burlesque room in the basement for seating at 7p but the show started closer to 9p.

This afforded me the chance to be pampered by the bar, restaurant, & wait staff which included a sumptuous platter of Fish 'n' Chips and the Liberty's own fine brew to drink. If not for the laughing hyena that settled in at the next table it would have been a perfect pre-show dinner (maybe a sound-proof plexi-glass separation).

The show itself went way beyond expectations thanks to the double-emcee'd "Freaky Follies." Jack Barrow & his partner Go-Go danced and sang (yes, Go-Go has a warm baritone voice) and entertained while engaging the audience with the 'Rules of Burlesque viewing'. Consent was a key to keep any "strip-show-audience" bad behaviors from occurring, and their funny speech work as none of the dancers were inappropriately touched.

The show itself (once it started) was 3-acts of highly entertaining Burlesque, audience-participation gaming, and even an interview with guest star Rosie Cheeks. I'm a fan of both Burlesque and RC so the mid-show chat with her was an added treat.

The music the dancers chose was right on target from a George Michael ballad to good old "Rock and Roll." The costumes were more elaborate from a de-frocked priest to Fosse's CABARET w/ Miss Sally Bowles 'himself' (Liza would've loved it).

Although the floor show takes place on actual floor, don't underestimate the willingness of the "masked" dancers to get interactive with the audience. A show not to be missed if you are happy the Burlesque circuit is coming back like me. And if Rosie Cheeks is on the bill, then it's a MUST-SEE. Her musical choice from group Devil Doll so perfectly set up the evening.

Thanks Liberty staff for making me welcome. And thank you FREAKY FOLLIES!!

It was absolutely amazing. Personally, I'm not too fond of mac and cheese, but their mac and cheese bites are divine. I had the sliders, and they were a good portion. The skillet chocolate chip cookie is a must

Arrived early for our Mother’s Day brunch. Most tables are small high tops with stools. Very uncomfortable and cramped, especially for 6 people. They would not move us to a proper table even though my 87-year-old mother was with us. Best they would do was give her a bar stool with a back. Food was expensive and mediocre. I did have a reservation but no where on the site did it indicate the type of tables they would provide.

It was mother's day so reservations were full, but I requested a table, not a tabletop because I had young children. I was told they were all booked although at the time of my seating there were half a dozen open and by the time we left one table never got occupied.

So it turns out they could have set us or even often to move us if a party did not show. Kids were a little uncomfortable but we made due.

I guess don't bring your kids

We had the option of sitting outside or inside. and while it was beautiful out, it was far too noisy(mostly the other guests), the seating looked great though. the food was pretty regular, decently sized portions but nothing worth noting. the drinks were nice and since we were there for bottomless drinks, the waiter did not hesitate when it came to ordering more pitchers for the table. even when we had two that were not completely finished, if we asked he delivered.

Hi There, I am sorry to hear of your experience. Anyone seated outside is asked for a credit card to hold, same idea as bartenders when they ask for cards to start a tab, so you were not the only ones. I do wish you brought these concerns to management during your visit to have remedied said issues. Thank you again for the time.
