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.

They’re dinner menu looks more like a lunch menu now. We ended up leaving after the waiter told us they changed the menu. It’s 90% burgers.

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.

I was pleasantly surprised at how good the food was and how much food we got for the Thanksgiving meal. It was the equivalent of Charlotte's restaurant week. I was stuffed when I left and glad I spend my Thanksgiving day there.

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.

Was surprised that the restaurant menu was entirely different from the online menu. Our visit last year while on business was delightful, and we were anticipating another delicious dinner. While the food we ordered was good, the offerings had changed from entrees to pub food...appetizers and mostly burgers and sandwiches. Only 4 entrees are offered and they appear on the menu more as a second thought (identified as larger plates) rather than featured entrees. Overall the meat (steak frites consisting of hanger steak and fries/we substituted salad) was tasty and well cooked. However the salad was overdressed with lemon vinaigrette and thus soggy. The craft beer selection was quite interesting. Service staff were personable and efficient. Overall a good meal after we adjusted our minds that their previous menu and especially the amazing pork chop we'd enjoyed in the past were non-existent now. Please Liberty Management...update your online menu!!

Aervice was not good. Why bother asking how you'd like your meal cooked only to send everything out welldone. It wasn't worth sending it back. As a burger place, you should definitely be able to cook the burger to the guests request.

We were happy to be able to accommodate our party of 8, and we all loved the made from scratch taste and feel of the food. The Mac and cheese was made with real cheese, for example. With 5 kids in our party, the casual atmosphere was just right for our meal before a concert.

We took a friend who was visiting from CA, and we all had different burgers. The burgers were hot, fresh and cooked to order, but the fries were served lukewarm. The server cheerfully brought out fresh fries, but I don't think anything less than very fresh should be brought to the table. We also tried the new pretzel appetizer which was good, but not exceptional in any way. Great beer selection.

Food was tasted fine - but 3 of 7 orders came out wrong. Waitress never stopped by after taking our orders so drinks were empty and went unfilled until she brought the final check. Incorrect orders were never fixed because waitress never reappeared. Will not return.

My family and I had reservations for 5:45. We arrived 15 minutes early and were seated immediately. The decor of the restaurant was very well done and had a cool beer theme in the section we were in. The food was very good and the plate presentation was nice. The only issue we experienced was that the restaurant was understaffed (Labor Day) and that fact was reflected by the demeanor of our waitress. She was very curt and was not able to be as attentive as she could have been as she had too many tables due to the understaffing situation. When we commented how busy she was, she was very quick to vent her frustration. All in all it was a good dining experience and would try it again the next time we travel to Charlotte.

We really enjoyed our lunch here. Great personable server took care of us. Started with a delicious cocktail. Our food was very tasty although very different. Loved my Pub Burgwr as it dripped it's yummy juices. My side was a very nicely seasoned ( parsley and cheese) fries. My wife opted for the salmon with faro. She loved it. Parking can be a challenge but certainly worth the trip.

We had a great lunch at The Liberty on my husbands birthday. Our adult children enjoyed the interesting menu and drinks. Our waiter was super polite and not overly attentive but always there when we needed him. We had fun with some beer flights and the found the southern comfort food to be delicious. You should go there!

Just OK, no reason to go back, no reason not to go. Online menu has things that they no longer serve, (Pecan Pie), How hard is it to keep the web site accurate? Our server said she worked there for years, and they never had pecan pie during her time. They have Poutine!! Unfortunately they offer a dish you usually only see in Canada, and change the recipe so that it becomes French fry casserole, my opinion would be to call it something else, I would not order poutine unless I wanted poutine. So I would not call the issues I had earth shattering, just things that make me wonder "what were they thinking". Hamburgers where good, beer was good. Parking might be tough, we had no issue parking, but people were looking for spots when we left.

Pros- on time with reservation, great service, good drink menu, tasty cocktails & deserts.
Cons- small portions for price, apps & entrées were only average.

We went for restaurant week to try it out and left disappointed. The appetizers were lacking in flavor and found bones in the chicken tacos. My husband's meal was only about 3 oz of hanger steak atop a mountain of fries. My inital pick for an entrée consisted of only 4 shrimp which were luke warm at best. The second entrée they brought me (trout) however was flavorful and steaming hot. Deserts and drinks were both delicious! Overall, we probably wouldn't go back.

Service was good, but the food was disappointing. We had been there about 6 months ago and the food was excellent. Thus time the food was average. Salmon was undercooked when it was emphasized that it needed to be cooked through. The pork chop was tender in spots, but difficult to cut and tough in others. Salads were great and the shrimp dish was good. The caramel boudin was soupy and took a long time for dessert to be served.
