This was our 3rd time to Libby's and the food is always great. We were a bit late for our reservation, but they got us in right away which we appreciated. The noice was higher and hard to have a deep conversation and for some reason this time our service was very slow and every time we asked for a drink or refills it took a long time probably since it was so busy so hopefully next time the service and noice will be a bit better but overall it's a great restaurant and very relaxing.

Libby’s is OK. The food was a lot better than last time we went. My daughter had the steak frittes. Steak was done perfectly. The bartenders are AWEFUL!! Please please make sure you bartenders know how to make a proper cocktail. This is a high end area of LWR.. they are not professional sounding or looking and just really brings the place down.

I ordered the ribs and they were a little on the dry side. The coleslaw, which is always so good, was very dry. We both agreed that they must have left off whatever dressing it usually has on it. My fries arrived luke-warm, but I ate them. My husband had the scallops and he said they were good, but he had the same comment about the coleslaw. Usually everything is good but sometimes you just go somewhere and get an off-night. We understand that, but we like Libby's so we'll be back. We eat there once a week. They do have plenty of good things on the menu.

Thanks so much for the feedback Gemgarden. Sounds like we missed the cole slaw dressing which really elevates the slaw. I have addressed the BBQ sauce issue with both of my chefs so we should be great on that in the future. Thanks for the feedback, please ask for me next week to make sure you guys are having a great time. Matt Passardi General Manager

I made a reservation for one. I made the reservation because I wanted to sit at a table and not the bar. When I arrived the hostess asked me if it was okay if I sat at the bar. I told her no and that is why I made a reservation. She didn’t seem to like the answer but ultimately gave me a table. It was 5 pm and there were a lot of open tables. I was there a whole 30 minutes. It really detracted from my enjoying my dinner and I almost left without eating there but it was Friday and I didn’t have a reservation anywhere else so I had to stay.

I had one of their summer specials, Macadamia Nut Encrusted Chicken Breast and it was delicious. We also had the steak tip egg rolls which only I liked. My wife had the Santa Fe salad with blackened chicken and said it was eh. Our son had the Dr. Pepper bbq ribs and said they were just okay (he compares all ribs to mine and mine always win). Service was friendly and attentive. We ate outside as it was way to noisy inside for us and the music they played was awful - some dance club crap and was too loud outside. Overall it was just okay.

We come here about once a week, usually order the same thing. This time I tried the Macadamia Chicken and it was excellent! Would have been 5 star had the other dish not been a complete lackluster experience. We always get the ribs, this time they were about half the size. When we inquired the waiter stated the chef had gotten in the usual delivery of ribs but refused it because they weren’t up to the standards, so they got these ribs instead. While I completely appreciate not taking something up to standard these ribs were horrible. Dried out, small, barely any meat. Would’ve been better to have been told about the situation when ordering so that we could’ve had the opportunity to choose something else, or to have been told they had no ribs at all. Super disappointing! Otherwise service was excellent as usual. The front hostesses were quick and responsive.

Seated quickly. The waiter at first was very consistent with us trying to take our order within the first 5 mins of us being there which was a little annoying as we were trying to have a conversation and told him multiple times to give us more time. Once our orders were in we barely saw him again. Not even a refill. He passed by multiple times w his back to us. The food wasn’t bad. But the catch of the day was wayyyy over priced. It doesn’t have a price on the menu but it was $35 and was no where worth that. There were also flies constantly around our table while we were trying to eat and even landed on my wife’s food. Definitely not going again. Bad experience.

I come here often and my last experience was by far the worst I’ve had to date. I wanted to surprise my fiancé’s parents who were in town visiting and we had multiple issues. Both of our steaks were cooked well done when we asked for medium rare. We asked for Mac and cheese sides with no jalapeños and jalapeños were added. The worst part of it all was that since we had to send the food back we couldn’t enjoy dinner as a family and it really ruined the experience.

Our waiter seemed inexperienced. I asked for medium rare filet and it was overcooked, medium at best. We had a kids meat sauce spaghetti, regular kids spaghetti with marinara is $7, they charged an additional $9 for the “meat” and when we got the bill we found out they used the vegan meatless meat which is not what we would have ever intentionally ordered. Very poor decision on the restaurant side to do that!!
