“A Bit Disappointing”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

The Liberty had been recommended to us for a Friday night Fish Fry. So we went, but had trouble finding it, then finding a place to park. As it turns out, the main parking lot is actually on the next street over; very inconvenient if you have not been there before. As for the food, average at best. Portions were about average, fish was a little greasy, my burger had a "freezer burn" taste. A very small place, so you have to get there early, maybe 8 tables at most. The real kicker, they do not take credit cards!!! We were lucky and had friends with us who spotted us a loan as we did not have enough cash.

“Great food”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Have never been disappointed. Very reasonable prices for well above average food.

Always clean and cozy - large, comfortable booths; tasteful, seasonal decorating; and ample lighting.

Wait staff very efficient and friendly - no wait to be acknowledged.

Bar is separate so not an issue for those not interested in the bar.

Penn Yan needs good restaurants; glad it's here!

“Don't Be Fooled By The Outside!”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

This Restaurant + Tavern is Excellent. NY Wines, NY Craft Beer, Excellent Food. The King Cut Prime Rib is plentiful and Tender and tasty. If you have a Real Prime Rib Urge Ask for the Liberty Cut? The Chicken French was Tender and full of flavor. Did I mention the Bang Bang Shrimp Appetizer. This Husband + Wife team have a Gold Mine of a property. There is a reason why The Liberty Restaurant and Tavern at 221 East Elm Street are #1 in Trip Advisors Rankings. They serve dinner 5:00 until 9:00.
They will take reservations. It's good idea to make one so they can have your table ready. id I mention how good the food is?
