“Atmospherics OK , Service and Attitude less than acceptable.”
Reviewed 25 February 2013 via mobile

Who's who in this place? Bartender was rude so we decided to sit at a table. Waited for menus and a server but none arrived. Food when ordered was mediocre and undercooked. Sent back soup which was cold and tasteless. Server was completely disinterested. Paid bill and wound up at MacDonald's in Hyde Park, at least we know what to expect.
Never, Never Again !!!!!

“A perfect lunch”
Reviewed 25 February 2013 via mobile

Went as a party of 6 for Sunday lunch, and ate in the restaurant. Kids built their own burgers, ladies had the salmon and the gents the grilled chicken on brown rice and salad. Service was just right, food was delicious and the Americana theme set the atmosphere.
This is a must visit restaurant, I thought as good as if not better than terrapin or Gigi, one of which doesn't open their restaurant in Sunday. Give it a try, we will definitely be back.

“Nice Place”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

Stopped in for a nightcap and late night snack. There was band downstairs that sounded good but we never ventured there. Good company, drink and food in the first floor bar. Nice that they have a late night menu. The Buffalo shrimp is outstanding bedtime snack!
One of the owners appears to be very hands on and available. He stopped into the bar with frequency and we all knew who he was. This is the kind of place that you should want to go to and support. My interaction with the staff was outstanding but with a present owner, I am sure that any concern would be promptly addressed.

“Great food, eat in thenTavern”
Reviewed 24 January 2013

We discovered Liberty in the summer of 2012 and have been there 4 times now. We recently tried them out for brunch. These people know how to put a menu together, pair food with wine and craft beers, how to season, cook and prepare fresh, clean gastro pub fair. Eat in the tavern, it's done up really nicely, it will make you feel Ike you stepped back 100 years in time. The service is good and knowledgable and it doesn't have the normal stuck up Rhinebeck atmosphere that you can get in some restaurants in that often, pretentious little town. It's right next to Upstate Films too which is a plus. The only downside are the prices, which are normal for Rhinebeck, which are a bit pricey, but it is a great place with great food. We will be back.

“OK experience”
Reviewed 16 January 2013

In town for a memorial service- while the food supplied for the memorial service was plentiful, the wings were great, plenty of fruits and veggies- the hamburgers were VERY undercooked . The stairs going downstairs are in desperate need of repair ( proceed with caution) love the old atmosphere vibe
