My husband and I have been coming here for 8 years now. The food and overall quality has gone downhill. We were there for our Anniversary (as we mentioned on the open table reservation), and there was no mention of it.

If I were 20 something and looking for a cheap happy hour I'd go there again. Not for a special occasion.

Our waitress was great! Coffee was good, didn’t run low, etc.
However the brunch buffet was seriously lacking. The majority of the food was cold the entire time we were there—mind you brunch started at 10am and we were there at 10:30, French toast was hard as were the meats on the cutting board station and the eggs were halfway to hard as well. The quiche looked great, until I bit into it and realized it was really under cooked, so that was disappointing (and then gross since I had to spit it out). The fruit and yogurt parfaits were at least good!
I know $22.95 for brunch buffet is more affordable than some of the other brunches in the area but I don’t think that should mean the food quality is lesser. I brought my father in law along to brunch since he’s visiting and I felt like I had to apologize after brunch because it just didn’t live up to quality brunch standards compared to the other places we’ve eaten when he’s come to visit.

My wife and I dined here for a brunch date recently. We took one look at the buffet and our minds were made up. The selection was unbelievable, especially for the price. I went back for more pizza and fried chicken, and the biscuits and gravy alone were worth the trip. And this may seem like a small thing, but the coffee was truly delicious. Go for the iced chocolate brownie for dessert. Or skip dessert and hit the main buffet again.

The service was exception, no one hovering over us but glasses stayed full.

I recommend a reservation for brunch.

Liberty tavern is a great spot for the high end casual meal. I’d recommend the penne or the Classico Pizza.

We have been several times for Sunday brunch and highly recommend. We decided to try dinner on a weekend and it was...blah. Service was merely ok - we had to keep finding someone to ask for additional drinks and our order came out wrong. It was loud. The food was so-so. I will continue to recommend for brunch but we won't be back for dinner anytime soon.

My wife and I loved entire experience for dinner. The food was outstanding and the wine was exquisite. It was low lit and comfy which made for a good atmosphere for the evening away!

I was told by others that this is a great place to eat and might be the best brunch spot in Arlington. But I honestly wasn't pleased with my experience. While there was a wide variety of food items, every single thing was cold. Literally everything. I'm not sure if there were burners underneath, but if there were they weren't working.

The waiter also did not introduce himself, barely spoke, and when he did, he was so quiet I could barely hear him. I had never been there before for brunch and didn't really know the set-up so it would have been nice for him to introduce himself to our table, explain the brunch set-up and then ask who wanted what. He just was not attentive at all and just not very personable. They did accommodate me adding 3 more people last minute which was nice. I've been there only once before for dinner and it was fantastic. But for brunch, overall dull experience and I wouldn't recommend.
