We are not just a restaurant, but an institution in Arlington. The first floor of our restored historic property houses an inviting bar and lounge that remains vibrant all hours of the day. Our upstairs dining room offers professional service, a warm ambiance, and a menu featuring rustic, modern American cuisine. We are devoted to in-house production: we bake all of our own bread and pastas, sausages, and desserts. Our beverage program features creative specialty cocktails, a diverse wine list, and a great selection of premium draft and bottled beer. We are known for our unlimited small plates brunch on the weekend and late night dancing Friday through Sunday. Liberty To-Go offers a separate carry-out entrance on Irving Street where wood-fired pizzas, house-made pastas, fresh salads and other specialties are offered for enjoyment at home.

    This place has really declined since it opened in 2007. Smells like old beer. Tables are sticky. Food is fair at best. No longer a good dining establishment. Too bad.

    Lovely experience - we had an excellent server and everything the 3 of us had, from drinks, to starters, to entrees was delicious. Thank you!

    Three of us had a variety of menu options. Everything was absolutely delicious! It was our first time there, since our office has recently relocated to Clarendon. We plan to revisit and recommend Liberty Tavern often. Great wide variety of menu selections. Staff was friendly and attentive.

    Went for Mother’s Day brunch. The food wasn’t bad but didn’t wow me or my guests. I would skip the bottomless cocktails and skip the rum punch.

    Liberty Tavern has always held a special place in my heart but this visit was so disappointing. I understand that due to Mother’s Day and graduation celebrations, there was an influx of patrons. The French toast was cold, the bacon was old and chewy, the Monte Cristo was the most disappointing. It was essentially two slices of French toast with a single thin slice of turkey. No dijon. A small dollop of strawberry jam. The mango-mimosas were not good at all. One was left because it was so bad. Overall a disappointing event.
