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.

Good Food

Went with coworkers so we sampled multiple things. There was nothing I didn't like. The pork rinds were sinfully good especially for a person who's diet doesn't normally consist of pork. Also not a fan of blue cheese but their blue cheese chips were great as long as I avoided the chunks. Use the... read more

My husband and I have been here multiple times and enjoyed it. One year we went for Valentine's Day and had a romantic dinner. The food is always well prepared and the waiters and waitresses are always friendly. We haven't been here in a while and I think that we should go back soon!

Went to eat with my son. Found the food good and the service fair. Nothing exceptional. One very distribing problem are the NASTY napkins. Why do restaurant put up with this. They pay good money to the linen service for an inferior product. Very disgusting to wipe your mouth and smell the grease. I told the manager as he came... More

The room is a tap room restaurant on one side and a huge bar on the other. The noise level is acceptable for its type of eatery. The service was outstanding and the food was fresh and plentiful, attractive to the eye and tasty to the palate. A comfortable and easy going place with above average food is a good... More

We went before a Lady Gamecocks game. We were seated right away with a party of 9. Food was fast and good. Got the tenderloin medallions. It came out as big as a roast and was delicious. Sweet tea was perfect. Salads wre great. Good spot to hit for food and fun.

Typical looking bar restaurant...not your typical bar food! Without a doubt a bowl of the best she crab soup I've eaten. Salads are also outstanding, and fish and chips rival any I've ever had. Excellent wine and beer selection. Highly recommend.

A friend and I have eaten here several for their fantastic burgers. (Don't ask me to pick a favorite! I love them all!) We usually sit in the bar and the service is good.

Travelling through Columbia SC and out for dinner. Visited Liberty Tap Room and were not disappointed. Happy Hour drink specials were excellent. Recommendations and attention from our server were good. My wife had a nacho appetizer and wedge salad and enjoyed both. I had a very excellent and large portion of meat loaf. Would recommend this restaurant to all.

If you know what good food tastes like then most likely you won't like anything that's served at Liberty. The menu looks ok but the food lacks taste and texture.

Service was slow and a bit aloof at 3:30 on a rainy Friday afternoon. The bar/restaurant was maybe 40% (or less) occupied and the wait staff was far more interested in their own private conversations than in taking our orders. We had to ask a manager (and interrupt HIS endless private conversation with the bartender) to send a server to... More
