“Thanksgiving Buffet - Awesome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

We ate here for brunch on Thanksgiving Day. It was one of the best Thanksgiving Day Buffets I have had. Lots of variety in the food and since it was a small restaurant, they kept replenishing the foods so they maintained their freshness. Enjoyed turkey and dressing, fruits, large cocktail shrimp, eggs, bacon, muffins, salad, a good mix of healthy and non-healthy foods. I chose not to have any desserts but they looked good as well. Only issue was cramped seating. I reserved on open table for 11:00 and when we arrived the hostess said our time was 11:30 and we would have to wait (which was wrong - I checked) but the manager in charge, said they would seat us right away which they did. Will go back.

“Enjoy the Cheese Selections”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

We were finally successful in getting a group reservation to Liberty Tavern (what a popular place!). The beer and wine offerings were plentiful and being visited by both the sommelier and beer manager was a plus - really added insight to our dining. I enjoyed the short ribs (cooked 48 hours) and root vegetables (never thought I'd say that). Others in our group worked through a large portion of the seasonal menu. All agreed that the cheese course we started with was the biggest hit. Everything was very good, though the dumplings that came with the trout and the duck fat onion rings fell a bit short of expectations.

“Great Sunday brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

We go routinely to the Liberty Tavern for their excellent Sunday brunch. Always lots of great choices that please the adults and children. Daytime lunches are fun but uneven. The burger and beer is a great deal. I tried the fish tacos and was very disappointed.

“Give me Liberty, or give me beer.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Great place for a group -- there were 9 of us the Saturday after Thanksgiving (we traditionally get together then and it's often hard to find a place that will let us make a reservation and that's big enough to give us a table where we can talk with each other). This place met all our requirements, along with wonderful wine and beer selections; and great food.

“A foodie delight in a tavern”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

Very bustling and noisy like most taverns, but the food is exceptional. While there is noway to discover this entree unless you know the staff, these guys have an Italian chef who really knows his home made pasta. so order pasta. Mussels are also a must. Everything on the menu is local and prepared by the chefs fresh. Wine list is passable. I have dined here at least 15-20 times so it was not a one shot deal.
