Found this restaurant downtown after the dinner rush hour. We were seated immediately in the half-filled venue. Although diners were few, service was surprisingly slow, exceeded only by the tardy arrival of our meals. Quality of the food was average, at best. Our waiter did...More

My son and I were here June 8. Usually I'm a fan of their steaks. We ordered medium well but the steaks were way overcooked. I should have returned them or requested a discount. We also ordered the fried shrimp appetizer. Literally less than 8...More

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.
