Seafood
Liberty Kitchen & Oysterette (LKRO) prides itself in it’s Oyster Bar. The multiple use seating at and around the Oysterette is inviting and friendly. The huge oyster, fresh seafood and whole fish display showcases seasonality and the vastness of the seafood offerings at LKRO. A traditional Japanese Robata Grill and a vertical 'Trompo' Grill are part of the Oysterette’s flexibility in a small space making the 'mini-kitchen' capable of producing freshly shucked oysters, grilled oysters, sushi, seafood towers and fresh carved tacos.

Moving into the main kitchen, the menu is just as wide and deep with a variety of local and regional seafood dishes and local Texas Beef. Our desire, as always, is to have a little something delicious for everyone and a menu for every palate as well as daily and weekly special features inspired by the bounty of available produce, meats and seafood in the Gulf Coast and beyond.

    The food was good, but certainly not exceptional. The deviled eggs required LOTS of hot sauce to make them palatable. The breakfast potatoes were not very crisp, and the fried eggs did not have much flavor. The special - a red fish that had not been scaled - was otherwise well prepared, but I made the mistake of not asking the price before ordering it, assuming it would be in line with the remainder of the menu. It was $20 more than the next most expensive item on the menu. Due to an allergy, we could not order the usual deviled eggs with fried oysters (at $13), so they substituted a little crab meat and charged $24.

    The restaurant and staff were great and it was a busy night - valentines. All of the seafood, salad, vegetable and dessert dishes were great - oysters, lobster roll, wedge salad, sautéed spinach, and bread pudding - I would highly recommend all of these. Candidly, the prime rib was ok. Lacked much flavor and was a thin cut. If you focus on seafood, it’s awesome.

    We enjoyed Liberty Kitchens food and ambiance, the waiter was really busy so I think the experience was more rushed and he could have done a better job tour guiding us to the specials and a specific steak we ordered.

    Service was disappointing, a waiter that wasn’t ours took initiative to make sure we were taken care of. The ribeye was a low quality cut that lacked the marbling and tenderness expected with the price point.

    First time going. Parking lot was tiny which forced us to valet park. I don’t mind doing that but valet said it had gotten so busy by the time we had left that he had to turn people away so I guess when we go back to go early so parking lot doesn’t fill up. Had reservations and was sat immediately. Drinks and food were delicious. Place was fairly empty at 6:15 but by 6:30 people were pouring in. We were off to the theater so we moved through dinner quicker than usual but still had a great time. Great place for a date or dinner with friends!

    My wife loved the lobster bisque, we had been searching for one since Pappas seafood house stopped serving it. She was quite happy. As for myself I had the rib-eye it was good. Oyster selection phenomenal. Our server was also very very helpful.

    It was my son’s 14th birthday. I took him and about 7 of his friends for lunch. Food was amazing, the boys ate everything and the service was impeccable. Chef even sent out a large yummy portion of bread pudding with sparklers for dessert. We will definitely be coming back.

    2nd time visiting Liberty. A great place for cocktails and appetizers. I have yet to try the entrees but I’m sure they’re just as good as everything else. I’ve only ever sat at the bar and the bartender is super nice, knowledgeable, and charismatic (I forgot his name). I will most definitely be back.

    The food and the service (Ryan) was excellent. We ordered the deviled eggs, they are a must. Topped with bacon jam and fried oysters. I had the chicken fried ribeye and eggs - the meat was as tender as I have had. Best brunch we have had in awhile.

    Our dinner last night was one of the best meals my wife and I have ever had. We eat at many fine restaurants but this meal was outstanding. Appetizers, main course, preparation, and even the dessert were all excellent. Jamey is the best server. Great guidance on selection of food and attention to timing of delivery. We could not ask for more. It was expensive but we ordered 2 appetizers and 2 specials for dinner plus one dessert. It was worth it especially since we have plenty of leftovers for dinner tonight. We can’t wait to come back to see you what the chef will do next time. Thanks again..

The hostess were so kind, when we got there I asked if there was possibly a booth available, she said no and proceeded to seat us @ a table, 10 - 15 mins went by and she came over to tell us a booth had just opened and was so kind to move us - 2 thumbs up!
