“Nice restaurant, good food, but bad service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

My husband and I were there (for the first time) on Saturday, October 19, 2013 between 3:30 - 4:00pm. We went to the Station Lounge section and sat. We were there at least 10 minutes before being acknowledged by anyone. We ordered our beverages and food which came out in a very reasonable amount of time. We noticed another couple who came in and sat near us. They too were not acknowledged and moved to the bar before anyone took their order. Four wait staff either getting off work or arriving to work sat at the bar and had lunch/dinner. Maybe the service was bad/slow because of a shift change. The food was very good and it's a really cool restaurant. I would recommend it to friends for the food and atmosphere, but would certainly warn them of the service.

“Always wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

Living near Bedford, we go to Olde Liberty Station regularly. My absolute favorite meal there is the Salt and Pepper Catfish. It cannot be beat. I've ordered it elsewhere and never had any that compares. There is just the right amount of coating and pepper, the fish has always been prepared properly. It's simply marvelous. Recently I had the Ciabatta Turkey Sandwich. The smoked turkey was PILED on the sandwich which included bacon and a cream cheese/cranberry spread that added terrific flavor. My husband had the Rueben sandwich. The corned beef was very tender. Sometimes Ruebens can be greasy from the butter and grilling, this was not. We've never had a bad meal here.

“Consistently delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Olde Liberty Station is a must for locals and visitors. I ate at this restaurant countless times when I lived within driving distance for a few years. The appetizers, main courses, and desserts are consistently delicious. The value and the atmosphere are great as well. Whenever I visit the Roanoke/Bedford/Lynchburg area, I stop and grab a meal at Olde Liberty Station.

“Terrific Labor Day Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We had a fun family lunch. Many choices ont he menu at reasonable prices. Our group especially liked the Fried Green Tomato BLT and the Salmon Cakes. Topped off the meal with Key Lime Cheese Cake (cheese cake is a house speciality) and Chocolate Pecan Pie. Fun restored train station atmosphere. We'll be back.
