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 chose this restaurant on the recommendation of the desk clerk at our hotel. At first sight, we thought it would be a seedy bar but were pleasantly surprised. I'm not usually a big eater but the filet mignon sounded good, so I ordered it. The waiter helped me choose a local beer. My husband had a burger. I finished... More

Had lunch today at Liberty Tap Room in Columbia, SC. It was very good. Had a wonderful cheeseburger with homemade french fries. Also enjoyed the iced tea. Would definitely go back.

I have been here a few times with my grown son. He really likes the food and atmosphere. Parking can be iffy as there is not much nearby. You may have to park and walk a few minutes. On our last visit, there was a new waiter in training. You could tell how important customer service is to the establishment... More

Excellent food in more or less a sports bar. We had lunch on a Friday and it was not busy. Calamari app was not rubber and was excellent. Liberty Club had real chicken. Asian tuna sandwich was great. Sweet potato fries are crisp and a must try. Mediterranean steak salad was excellent. Obviously the beer list is huge, diverse and... More

The food and service is not as good as it used to be. The last 2 times we went for brunch-food was mediocre, service poor. We decided to give it another try this evening-small portions, though taste was good. We got to watch 5-7 servers sitting at a booth, talking and texting, and though service was not poor, it was...

Liberty Taproom is a great place to go in the Vista. The service is great and the food is out of this world. The atmosphere is also really nice and can range from quiet in the dining area to fun in the bar.

I have gone here frequently over the years, the food is always good, whether appetizers, or main meal. The bar is beautiful and large. The main dining room has never been to my taste, seems blah compared to the rest of the building. This is a favorite happy hour spot, but my main complaint is the appetizer menu. Everything on...

Me and my colleagues usually go to Liberty tap room and grill. The drinks are cheaper before 7. Service is good, food is alright and one of the most busy places to have a drink in Columbia. If you haven't been there, i would recommend to try it out

We walked here from our hotel, The Columbia Marriott, which was right around the corner and a nice walk with many things to see. Our group of 10 parents were seated immediately at the bar the first night. We loved our food of many varieties so much that we came back several times with kids during our 5 night stay.... More

Went here with a group of friends. Great beer selection. Food is good. It is a little loud but it is a pub. We had a nice time and the service by Casey was solid.
