We were a large group of friends and family. The waiter took his time writing everything down. Took about 45 min for food to arrive, they forgot soup and salads. Ribs were ice cold. Steak was burnt. Forgot all sides. Two kids meals entirely forgotten....More

We recently stopped into the Tap Room for a quick dinner. The food was, as normal, good but I think they are trying too hard to be haute couture. Our server was great, if only the food was that good.

Good beer selection- not very crowded later in the evening. Prices were decent also. Nothing overwhelming, just a local joint.

Sorry, but I have no idea. I doubt it, but this question should be addressed to Liberty Tap Room for accuracy. Feel sure they honor all major credit cards but a discount card like AARP or AAA I would think not.

The restaurant is somewhat divided so they could surely accommodate your group and give you a nice area to gather in. As others have said just make sure you call ahead...

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.
