Food was good, service speedy. Portion size was huge. The New York strip was enough for 2-3 people! With salad and a side there was lots of take home. The fish and chips were really tasty. My favorite was the bonfire shrimp appetizer !! Out of this world sauce.

The Liberty Tap Room has a good and varied menu. They also have a very long bar inside and, if I recall correctly, another one in an area that was outside but is now covered over in a more casual setting than inside. I have been there for various special events such as a Congressman's victory party which was held... More

We ate here while visiting friends in Columbia. The atmosphere in the historic building was nice. The service was slow and our waitress was not very attentive. We all tried different dishes and agreed the food was below average. With so many choices in the Vista, I suspect we could have done much better somewhere else.

Stopped in for drinks after an event at the Convention Center. Staff was very helpful and prompt. They even offer valet parking for the horrific parking in The Vista.

Live in the Vista, stop in here frequently with my wife. We usually sit at the bar 90% time. Great service and people at the Taproom. Beers are a little warmer than I like at times, and they certainly waste a lot with foaming at the tap. Food is above average, good average pricing, quick, and plentiful portions. Our favorites...

I had high hopes for this place seeing as they were ranked so highly for place to eat in Columbia. When we got our plates the fries they gave was a pitiful amount. We ended having to ask for more and they were cold. My burger was ok but it was not seasoned at all. Our food took a while... More

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.
