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...More

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.

We love Liberty, and Liberty on the Lake. Good place for a drink, or a meal. Only drawback, it can be noisy and hard to carry on a quiet conversation.

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.
