Food is good. Service is not good. Second time we've been here in two months and both times the waiters have not paid any attention. We've been here a number of times and the service is getting worse. Probably won't come again. PS We're did not come at a busy time. 5pm.

I've been in Columbia for years and never been to this place before.

I came in over the 4th and had my first Moscow Mule (well...technically mine was made with tequila). Very, very good. And, priced right at $7.50 a drink (vs $6 for a good craft beer). The pretzel we bought to munch on was good too. If you're looking to try a new drink, I highly recommend.

Liberty has a few locations, but the downtown one is my favorite. I visit this restaurant a few times a year and the service gets better all the time. Whether you want a quick bite or a sit down this is an amazing place to go. And they have a wide alcoholic drinks choice as well as non-alcoholic. And the... More

I was in Columbia alone - meeting up with colleagues tomorrow - and it was a perfect place to sit an have a good burger and a couple good beers. The bartender, Jonathan, was a solid guy. They actually cooked the burger medium-rare, as requested (unlike most restaurants)

Best thing was the pretzel appetizer. The shrimp and grits was supposed to have Tasso ham. Which I'm used to in shrimp and grits. Except the ham must have been so small I couldn't even find it at all.

Liberty is a good place to go for a drink & with good food. It's a place to go with a friend for a beer and there are many other places to choose from within walking distance.

Our beer was warm and the food was cold. Would not recommend. The service was very slow. Maybe go on a night when they are busy.

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.
