The service and food were both outstanding. The cornbread appetizer, rainbow trout, and hamburgers were all delicious. You also need to try the Kentucky Heat drink... it is my new favorite! We highly recommend this restaurant.

Fun brunch spot and great value for your money. Only wish the mimosa refills and food were brought faster. They give you a 90 min limit, but service is pretty slow so you are at the mercy of the staff/kitchen.

Oysters Rockeller is just so so- came out cold. And the mussels is fine- nothing exceptional. But the artichokes were tasty and steak was great.
Our server was friendly, attentive!

Great food as usual. Definitely go for the small plates unlimited, worth the price paid. Only draw back was service was slow. Averaged 20 minutes from sitting down before any type of service happened.

I had great time at Liberty Tavern to celebrate a birthday during brunch. The only downside was the service. Brunch was busy, but our party felt forgotten. I will recommend it again because this could be a one time thing.

Easter brunch while visiting my son who lives in the neighborhood. Nice outdoor seating, friendly server and tasty food at reasonable price. Enjoyed the Garden Bloody Mary. Would definitely come back next time I visit.

The unlimited small plate option is not worth the money. The food options were limited and were served lukewarm at best. We were seated and after about 15 minutes we had to ask twice for a server. The process about ordering small plates was not explained and at no time were the other options for food presented to us. We were not impressed and will definitely not be back.

Overcooked steak & mushrooms, and flavorless porkchop parm. Worst restaurant we've been to in a very long time. Jennae was a good server, but the food...very bad.

Honestly this was my first experience at The Liberty Tavern and to say I was disappointed is an understatement. We all did the small plates for brunch and the food was just not good. Not only that but our server seemed to be irritated when receiving multiple orders at once the entire time we were there. About the only that was worth it, was their penny drinks. Won’t be returning anytime soon.

As always food was delicious, the server was attentive and our table for two outside was close to the street but far away from other customers. I’ll definitely be back. The smoked salmon breakfast pizza with creme fraiche, capers and arugula is already calling my name!

There was a party of two. My companion sent her steak back because it was not done properly. I thought when I took the first slice of my steak that it would be OK having ordered rare and it was pink but when I got to the towards the center of the steak it was dry and nowhere near rare it was a disaster and I would never order steak there again. For $36 I expect a better value and better quality and the steak to be done as requested, not dried out and difficult to even finish I had to leave part of it
