This time is was a quieter weekend, and we had reservation. We got the table just fine. The temperature in... More

Lunch, dinner or happy hour, Liberty Tap Room in the Vista is a good go-to spot. The food is good and the beer selection is great. Parking can be a challenge so take advantage of the valet parking.

The first time I was on my way to eat and drink here I was soo excited. Afterwards, I was more like "eh". Liberty is an okay place but the food isn't all that great and there are plenty of other places nearby within walking distance that have better drinks. Prices are kind of high but that's expected since the... More

The food was good and not to expensive but nothing out of the ordinary. I enjoyed lunch at the bar and was pleased with the selection of beers. The seated dining at night was very noisy as was the Saturday bar scene.(infact my party all agreed to leave before ordering drinks.) Maybe we were to "old" for the weekends. The... More

She was able to recommend to... More

We dined here twice while visiting Coluumbia this week. Mainly because of the great location on Gervais. Our first we had 5 for dinner, food was OK, service was terrible! He would bring us something and just disappear, he must have been in the bar area because when he did come back he was not carrying food or drinks. The... More

We actually had lunch here twice during our stay in town. The group of 5 each had something different and all of us had compliments. We weren't used to the free refills and we were only about 3/4s the way thru our sodas, a new full glass was brought to the table. Definitely would be back.

I've been there many times for lunch and never been disappointed. Great burgers and salads, always good service at the bar or booth.

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.
