36 beers on tap-always rotating. Verity is nice but when you find a beer you like, IT"S GONE!!! Oh well...better to have tasted and enjoyed than to never have tasted at all! My biggest gripe--it's obvious profit is king. Workers are GREAT but bottle prices go up with the wind. Food is improving. Wings are the best!

Mixed feelings about Liberty. I had visited before and totally enjoyed my dinner. Not so much the second time around and it seemed a bit chaotic .. not a lot of ambience. Had music the night we were there but was very disjointed.

Stopped here for lunch and a beverage with a girlfriend from work. It was a rainy Thursday but the atmosphere and the bartender helped to make our noontime visit great! Good lunch specials and great drinks. When I asked for cucumber vodka the bartender muddled cucumbers and made me a fantastic drink now called "The Linda Special". Seems like a... More

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

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.
