I visited the Tap Room on my latest business trip to Columbia. It's located right downtown close multiple other bars and restaurants. The restaurant is quite large. One side is made up of dinning tables, another is made of of booths including a long bar and then another with a bar and a view. I sat on the bar/booth side.... More

A must have - the Asian entree salad! The ahi tuna was prepared perfectly and the asian sesame dressing had just the right amount of sweetness along with the wasabi peas. Loved the She Crab soup! Shrimp and grits not my favorite!

The view is of Lake Murray is lovely. A causal meal seated at the bar, food was good, bartender/server attentive. There was seating up stairs, and the level we were at accommodated groups. When our family and friends come to visit we would differently bring them here.

The food was very good. The martini was overpriced and my bad for not asking the price since it was not listed up at the bar. This is the restaurant that is very loud and busy so don't come if you want intimate or quiet conversation. There were several of us, and you had to keep talking loud to be... More

Liberty Tap Room has earned its well deserved place as a Columbia favorite. Located in the heart of the Vista entertainment district, it has an excellent menu and a fantastic selection of beers.

Young people serving young food to young people in young portions. I could have been grandfather to half the people in the place, but came away wanting to return. The "bang bang" shrimp knockoff is excellent, my ribs were very tasty, and my wife's steak was perfectly cooked. We could only eat half what was put in front of us,... More

Tried the she crab soup and the grilled shrimp salad on a bed of spinach both were great. There are a lot of heavy foods on menu but they have liter items too. Great beer selection and some good bourbon too. It's busy but open seating in bar area.

The place was very busy. They had a tough time accommodating our party though we had reserved via e-mail. The service and the food made up for the initial inconvenience. Very good burgers with very good fries among the offering. Plenty of people watching to be done when it gets crowded and it gets crowded.

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.
