Description: 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.

My mom and I had lunch there today and I couldn't wait to write this review. We hadn't been to Liberty for lunch/dinner in a couple of years (had once for a great happy hour) and we were so surprised by how wonderfully good the food, service and atmosphere was! One of the main reasons we enjoyed it so much was our server, Josh. He was attentive, funny, offered terrific suggestions (which we took him up on and loved) and made our dining experience fun. We ordered flash-fried zucchini for an appetizer, a club sandwich with fantastic seasonal veggies on the side, and a buffalo chicken sandwich with fries. All were excellent. Again, Josh sealed the deal and we look forward to returning again!

Liberty has a good beer list, casual ambiance and great burgers. Staff was OK on a Monday night. Good for dinner downtown in Columbia.

We have been to Liberty Tap Room several times and have never been disappointed. There are MANY restaurant choices in Columbia, but somehow when we can't decide where to go, we always end up at Liberty. The craft beer selection is excellent and they make a greart dirty martini.

The food choices never fail to satisfy. I don't just mean their steaks and specialy entrees either. You might not think of Liberty as the place to go for burgers or pizza, but you will be surprised at just delicious they make them! The service has never been less than very good and we have never left unhappy about the value of our dining experience.

My husband got a drink that was wrong, his steak was overcooked so had to send it back. They also forgot to bring his salad. Jennifer took great care of us though and the manager did come out to be sure the second steak was correct. The calamari appetizers was a bit overcooked as well but we were starving so it didn't matter too much. It was really loud. A bridal party sitting a few feet from us was having a ball.

My fiancée and I went to liberty tap room to celebrate our relocation to South Carolina. Our server Shee (shay? I can't remember how to spell it correctly sorry!) was phenomenal. He recommended a perfect champagne to toast for dinner and even brought out dessert on him. The food and the atmosphere were perfect. We were not rushed nor scooted out the door when it came close to closing time. At one point my fiancée was out of cigarettes and asked Shey where there was a cigarette machine and he directed us across the street. But not even five minutes late came back asked him what he smoked and ran across the street to get him a pack.

Wow. This guy was amazing. This is the kind of experience that should be shared and looked to for the perfect server. Thanks!!
