Description: Liberty means many things to many different people. It is a celebration of the great American farmer and the rich bounty he puts on our tables. It is a celebration of America's melting pot of rich ethnic cooking styles. It is a celebration of the resurgence of the hancrafted-brewing style of the pre-prohibition small American brewery. It is a celebration of life, family and the pursuit of happiness. So bring us your hungry, your thirsty and fun-loving, we'll send you home refreshed and fulfilled.

Food was delicious - my daughter had meatloaf and mashed potatoes that she enjoyed very much; I had a cheeseburger and fries that was cooked to order; servings were generous; service was very good; great selection of beers on tap and bottled

I went here with friends while I was visiting. We have been to a few brunch places but this was one of the less fancy yet equally amazing ones we visited. I loved the Lincoln hash, and I can say it truly did cure my hangover. They also serve very yummy mini blueberry muffins as you wait and their shrimp... More

My son and I attended freshman orientation at University of South Carolina in late June, early July. We watched one of the World Cup soccer matches while seated in the bar area. It was a very convivial atmosphere and would be appropriate for a date night, hanging out with friends or a family dinner. We both had salads which were... More

Because this restaurant is so close to my usual hotel in Columbia, I eat here almost every trip. I love the Shea Crab Soup, but it can be a little inconsistent. I also really enjoy the Asian Tuna Sandwich.

Stopped here while doing the college tour with my daughter and we loved it. Have eaten here many times over the 4 years she was in college. Her fav was the Shrimp & Grits - spicy and yummy, with a side of the apple walnut slaw, which is sweet. I would suggest either the Liberty chicken or the Bourbon chicken... More

We really enjoyed the last time we ate here in 2013. So our expectations were higher. It seemed like a different restaurant now. The menu appears to have changed and was very blah. Had to ask for a beer list... This is a tap room so I'd expect that at the table. And the service was just service... I can... More

In town for three days and stopped here for our first night's dinner. I wasn't very hungry since we had a late lunch, so I decided to go with the Blue Cheese Wedge and a bowl of She-Crab soup. Was highly satisfied. The wedge salad was one of the best I've had. The soup....amazing! I was glad we chose this... More

Not one to stop at chains and we went here on the recommendation of a coworker (and Gamecock dad) who I respect for his "fooding". OK so I made up a word. Will keep it simple... Super friendly and attentive staff. Great selection on tap that included local/regional, national and international. Being from Delaware was impressed to see they picked... More

This is part of a chain, but is conveniently located on Gervais street. We were quickly greeted and shown our table. However it was about ten minutes before our server showed up. We were tempted to leave. They have a nice selection of beers and the appetizers are good. We had the calamari which was crispy without being over fried.... More
