I took fellow trip advisor advice and decided we would try this restaurant. My husband was skeptic when we first arrived since it was a bar in front and the restaurant in the back.

The friendliest staff anywhere. They couldn't do enough to make our visit great. Good salads and everyone said their dressings tasted homemade. Scallops were delicious.

I didn't really care for the area it was in, but it was within walking distance of where we stayed. The food was excellent, and the locals were VERY friendly. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let that scare you off. You'll be glad you tried this little gem.

Excellent food and service, best liver and onions I have had in years. The wife had salmon with walnut maple glaze baked on a cedar plank. We shared a fresh made bread pudding that was suburb. Definitely recommend you eat there

Based on all the recommendations here, we had dinner at The Liberty Restaurant last week while on a long weekend at the Finger Lakes. We were not disappointed. My husband had the scallop special and the scallops were tender, fresh and delicious. I just had to try the Chicken French after reading reviews about the dish and it was fabulous.... More

At first, this place seems like a neighborhood watering hole, which it did have that comfortable environment to it but, the food was very good and the wait staff friendly and gave great service.
