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.

It was all good. Nothing bad to say about it. We especially appreciated to be seated in the smaller room where it is indeed less noisy. We stayed a long time and were never rushed to leave. A very nice experience for our Easter family brunch. Thank you.

The food and drinks were amazing. Great seafood options with wonderful flavor and sauces. Our waiter was not very responsive and kept getting the orders wrong. He gave us the wrong drinks and we had to flag him down several times to order things.

The service was soooo slooowww. I don’t understand why they have the waitress servicing two parts of the restaurant. The cake and Parker rolls stated butter and bacon jam for $5. 3 rolls come out with butter and salt. I asked where’s the bacon jam and I think she was the manager said we don’t serve it with it anymore. My reply was why do you have it on the menu? So she brought out about 1/2 tablespoon. Really? Our bill was over $300 so not like we weren’t eating and drinking The food was good but with terrible service I will spend my money elsewhere. Too bad as the decor is cute

The decor is super cute. Awesome menu with lots of options. Great drink menu. Service was ok. Noise level was very loud due to a large party next to us. They were so loud we had to yell at each other. I honestly think management should spoken to them but they were probably allowing them to have a good time, so I get that but it kinda ruined our meal. Our food came out slow and several items were not brought out and we had to request them a few times. It was Sunday brunch so we expected hiccups. Overall we enjoyed our meal and will definitely be giving Liberty another try soon.

Had not been in over a year or two, the food was outstanding! Delicious oysters and redfish was perfectly cooked. The bread service and chocolate cake did not disappoint. Will add back to the rotation!

Victor was great, drinks and food were wonderful as always. Acoustics need help though. Consider insulation under the chairs or insulated panels in the deepest portion of the recessed ceiling tiles.

Food was different and amazing. They need to improve in their oyster shucking, they didn’t loosen them from the base.

Very expensive compared to similar restaurants. Also slow service even though they were not that busy. Seems like the overall level of the restaurant has gone down compared to dining here before Covid.

Excellent fish (redfish) and fresh veggies. Dessert was okay but certainly a matter of taste. Many options on the food menu, very extensive list of cocktails and wine.
Dietary restrictions were very well respected.
Excellent spacing during the pandemic.
Service was just average, our waitress gave good recommendations but our questions seem to annoy her.
Expensive offerings but worth the quality (and servings were large).

Just a great spot for some good oysters, wish they still have the braised short rib and maybe a happy hour. All said, this place has weathered the “pandemic” and is a good choice!

The inside of the restaurant is SUPER original and cute. You can tell they put a lot of time into every part of the restaurant including the bathrooms. The menu had more then enough options and everything everyone ordered exceeded expectations. Place was very clean and service was great. They are still taking precautions due to covid as well.

Always been a fan of this restaurant. Went there with my parents. Our server was attentive and polite and our food was delicious. Scallops were in my opinion the best part of the meal. Their deviled eggs with fried oysters and bacon jam are a staple if you haven't tried them yet you are missing out!

Eggs were all over cooked but management took off one meal and gave us a free desert. Meals took forever to deliver to our table.

Cool spot with a lot of great changes on the menu - oysters served with dry ice (cool effect), steak on a Himalayan salt slab, and other fun things! Plenty of seafood dishes, which are a fave of mine. Service at the bar is great and wine prices are pretty reasonable.

The Chef’s creations were made to perfection. The Lobster Bisque was exceptional. Our waiter was attentive, yet not intrusive. The ambiance was a Texas Gulf vibe with excellent spacing so the noise was very comfortable. A great experience.
