I've been going to Liberty since it opened in the early 90's. Really decent food from steaks or just pizza. Has a long linear bar in middle plus dining room in front and "beer garden" in back. Usually DJ and dancing on weekends. Great selection of draft beers, go on Thursdays for $3 pints including many that would cost double... More

I like The Liberty Tap Room. The beer and service are always good and the food in average or better. I really enjoyed the Shrimp and Grits and Wheat beer that was on tap. It's pretty expensive for the kind of food, though. That's the price of eating downtown, I suppose. There are better and worse places for the money,... More

We stopped at a local Irish pub just a few steps away from here and we're terribly disappointed, so we walked over to Liberty Tap Room and they were so great! Had plenty of options on the menu, and loved everything we ordered! They were terribly busy but the staff was super patient and welcoming despite all or many questions.

We started with deviled eggs, and had to ask for silverware and napkins. My husband and I both ordered the 12oz ribeye which is served with a baked potato and green beans. He ordered his steak med rare and a baked potato with sour cream and butter. My steak was to be medium well with a loaded baked potato. When... More

We had dinner at Liberty Tap Room and enjoyed a wonderful steak, a few great beers (porter for me) and watched a football game on one of the many flat screens. It was a relaxing evening. We came back the next night for chocolate martinis. They are so good.

The hosts are always super friendly and the wait staff is awesome. Not a long wait for food and it's worth every penny. I always get the Southern Burger. Pimento cheese and stuff on it... Amazing. Highly recommend this place.

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.
