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

We came here for a weeknight dinner for a birthday. Service was polite, but a little bit slow. The bacon cheese dip appetizer was very good. Cocktails were average. 2 of us had steak, and the other two girls had salads. They were all good, just nothing outstanding. I'd come back, just wouldn't go out of the way to do... More

My husband and I were visiting Columbia and after walking all over downtown, we found Liberty Taproom for dinner. Good food and good beer selection. Server recommended a beer for my flight that ended up being my favorite of the four. Chips were crispy but not overdone. Chicken sandwich had good flavor. Serving portions were not overly big, just enough... More

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.

Romantic place to have a glass of wine and watch the sunset by the water. My husband really likes the shrimp and grits but my meals have only been average.

Liberty has so much potential, but unfortunately an apparent money-grab by management/ownership results in it coming up short. Great location / great looking place / great food (when it eventually arrives) / great beer (although getting it served in a timely manner can be a real challenge). To be clear, I'm not bashing our waitress. She was completely overworked and... More

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.
