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.

We ate lunch on a Friday, and found seats easily in the bar area. It's definitely not cookie-cutter, but has classic charm. The food was good, but our favorite was the atmosphere. We tried returning at 1 on a Sunday, and the wait was over an hour and they only served brunch. Needless to say, we will be returning, but... More

I've always had tasty steaks, burgers and fixings here, service has been pleasant and there's a good selection of beer. We've gone with the family or from work and always enjoyed our visit.

Husband, in-laws, and I ate here on a Saturday night. We had reservations and it was crazy busy, but we had no wait. Atmosphere was nice, staff very nice. It was VERY HOT in there, though. They had the windows open and no a/c on which made it very uncomfortable. It was at least 85 degrees outside. Our server was... More

Liberty Tap is located in the wildly popular Vista area in Columbia. It is surrounded by several other restaurants and bars. The entire area is a wonderful place to spend an evening. The food and service at Liberty Tap were excellent! I highly recommend it.

There are not many brunch restos in town, and since few of them take reservations, we thought we'd try it. Big mistake! Reservations for 11:30 Sunday, and the place was already packed. We were seated immediately and ordered. Food arrived at 12:25. I ordered eggs Florentine; one poached egg was hard-cooked (yes, awful!), and the other egg, while cooked correctly,... More

In our experience, bars and tap rooms tend to have pretty mediocre food, but Liberty Tap Room was a very pleasant surprise. We had a group of six, with no reservations, but we were able to be seated pretty quickly. The menu was quite broad and everyone found something attractive pretty quickly. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly. Our party,... More

Wow the cowboy burger bucked me I couldn't finish it. The teriyaki green beans were good. The Collards had to much vinegar. The Crab dip was good. Over all we enjoy our anniversary dinner here.

I generally try to avoid chain restaurants and the Liberty, unfortunately, reminded me of one. They try to gear a menu to apply to all patrons rather than stay with specialties. Of our meals, although the waiter was asked how they cook their steaks and the temperature ordered accordingly, it still came out well over-cooked. When asked for dinner rolls,... More
