I talked a business colleague into going to the Liberty Taproom after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. I expected good, but it was even better. We sat on the patio which was very pleasant. Our waitress was very good. Attentive but not overbearing. She helped us navigate the daunting beer list and the flight choices all turned out to be very... More

An employee of Reebok recommended this restaurant to us. We were looking for a pub style place with sports on TV....B-Ball playoff time!!! This was the perfect place! It met all of our needs - I don't eat meat and there were several options for me on the menu...unusual! I had the small plate shrimp spring rolls that was just... More

I had the blackberry libertini and it was fantastic. Expensive, but fantastic. So many beer options, and if you can't choose from the tap, there are so many bottled options. The wings were very good (mild, house) and the French fries were very good. He had the Famous Amos burger and it was ok, but then he is not really... More

Went for lunch to check it out, will have to go back and try some beers. Good was good, menu diverse and not all just typical bar food. Well done!

We stopped here for lunch on a Monday afternoon and will definitely be back! They had a great beer selection, a number of microbrews on tap and a ridiculous bottle selection, the bartender was friendly and prompt, and our food was surprisingly delicious. The menu was very interesting, a good twist on standard bar foods and I had a hard... More

Descent food with a crazy craft beer selection. Really like the outdoor patio in summer. Will be back to try more food.

Probably would have given a 3 1/2 but did not feel a 4 was warranted. Really limited menu was a bit disappointed with the selection. Good drink and beer selections and our waitress was very pleasant. I had a personal pizza which was decent and my wife enjoyed her burger. Again, ok, but will be in no hurry to return.... More

Verona coffee infused burger. When was the last time you saw that on the menu at a sports bar? That alone intrigued me enough to come back for dinner after my first business lunch. My expectations were met. The Monday night wings deal is perfect for the big eater in your group. And we're not talking hot, mild and BBQ... More

The best part about this place is the lunch. I've never had a better lunch for the price and its never crowded. The beer selection is out of this world and it includes an extensive bottle room where you can mix a six or take one to your table. Dinner and weekends are a bit different as the place gets... More
