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.

“Service slow but food good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

This is part of a chain, but is conveniently located on Gervais street. We were quickly greeted and shown our table. However it was about ten minutes before our server showed up. We were tempted to leave. They have a nice selection of beers and the appetizers are good. We had the calamari which was crispy without being over fried. My wife had the strawberry, spinach and shrimp salad. She reports it was delicious. I had the classic grilled burger. The bun was a little dry, but the burger had good flavor. Aside from the slow service, it was a nice place to eat.

“Great Atmosphere and Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We stopped in on Memorial Day they were very busy and short staffed from Holiday call offs.
It did not matter our server handle his tables and was very accessible. We really enjoyed our food and the beer selection was great. We were visiting family at Ft Jackson so I don't know when we will get back but Liberty Tap Room will be our first choice.

“little on the pepper side”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We were visiting from out of town and happened upon this place. Two out of the three of us ordered pasta dishes and both had so much pepper in it that we couldn't enjoy our meals and did not take the leftovers home. The beer selection is impressive and the place was hopping. I would try it again but would order differently.
