    When you expect to enjoy a nice well prepared whole lobster and what you get is something drown in whisky that taste like a dram of Johnny Walker you just visited Liberty Kitchen. Not impressed at all

    Lively weekend brunch! Love the red velvet waffles and pancakes as well as the Frosted Flake French toast. Plus deviled eggs with bacon jam 😍

    Liberty Kitchen in the Heights is one of THE best restaurants in Houston. Great atmosphere, food, staff & service! Do not miss the "Poke"! The gumbo is pretty awesome too!

    Service was bad. Brought Brussel sprouts with bacon after we ordered them with no meat.flavorless mixed protein poke bowl. Cocktail was good. Preclosing they put up chairs and told us to leave.

    I had the smoked salmon eggs Benedict and it was fantastic. A friend got the red velvet chicken and waffles and I almost wish I'd had that instead. It was delicious and amazing.

    Their Mac & Cheese is to die for. Literally the best Mac and cheese I've ever had in my entire life. Oh and their pork belly BLT is the bees knees. Their Chicken + Red Velvet waffles was unimpressive!

    Try the Campechana. Top it with fried oysters for an extra $2 and dig into the sweet and tangy appetizer -- which has chunks of tomato, avocado, cucumber, and green olive peaking throughout! Read more

    The menu of $6 appetizers and 3- to 6-oz pours (starting from $3) changes seasonally, but you can expect combos like sambal-butter-smothered grilled oysters paired with fruity peppercorn-spiced sake! Read more

    The CFC devolved eggs are a must! Bacon, crispy chicken...so good! The Gulf-Hill country Mac n cheese left me disappointed. It lacked flavor. The Liberty drink is great with a sprite mixer.

    "Hawaiian MacCock" - Looks messy. It is messy. Perhaps one of the messiest burgers around, so be ready. No pineapple in this one but it was good with the egg and grilled spam nonetheless.
