This restaurant has something for everyone in the family. My favorite meal is their Fish and Chips. I've gotten this here twice. Each time it has been perfect. The fries are crunchy but not mushy. The fish is moist on inside and crunchy on outside....More

Great Beer selection. Costly beer but good quality and you can sample. Fast and friendly service at the bar. Lively and busy atmosphere. Hawaiian Pizza was bland this time and slightly undercooked. Even the jalapeños were mild. I would not try the pizza again.More

The food was average and the beer was overpriced. We had the seared ahi tuna and a steak salad. Both were good but not anything special. A pint of beer was $ 10 and I found this excessive. The server was very nice, the service...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.
