Dedicated free parking, much easier than Nashville. Slighly smaller than Nasheville. Similar decor to Nasheville plates on the walls and ceiling and several big screen tvs. Service was quite good. Selection was good, but not great. I did find a bottle to try. Average to higher pricing. Place smelling like smoke, but I would go back.

Located in a strip mall. Similar to other locations that I’ve been to. Has a lot of local breweries, but nothing particularly rare was on tap when I was there. Definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area.

This is the 5th flying saucer I’ve visited and they’re all pretty much the same; Lots of plates Covering high ceilings, waitresses dressed like jailbait, tons of tapas with very few locals, bartenders with limited beer knowledge. Of course this one added a dodgier then usual location in a shopping center next to a head store and Some place called the red door which sells the world’s sexiest erotic lingerie or words to that effect. Surely we can do better for craft beer than the Flying Saucer.

Second Saucer I’ve been to? Stopped by with some pals in March and found it to be the lesser cousin of the Raleigh branch I know better. Same average food, same questionable sartorial policy for the female staff, and while there was a nice selection of brews it certainly wasn’t as wide-ranging as one finds elsewhere. Mind you, I had plenty of choices and enjoyed sampling a couple of local brews. But this branch isn’t any great shakes.

Visited this location during a recent visit to Charlotte. A bit out of a hike to get to from the Queen City, but near to the University and the Raceway. Flying Saucer atmosphere inside with a strip mall patio outside. Very busy even on a Wed night. Service was very attentive and the server was able to identify the newest tapped beers as well as relative rarities or new offerings. Selection was broad - with many styles represented and regional specialities. Food was typical pub fare - would make the trip for the food alone. Prices were typical for the area. All in all, I’d visit again if nearby, but would not take the trek from downtown again.

Visited: 9/24/10. My last stop in Charlotte on my way back home. Stopped here for dinner. This was the last "must see" on my list. This place was packed out around dinner time. I found one spot at the bar. Great service. Was acknowledged right away even though they were crazy busy. I started out with a SN Tumbler on tap. Their selection was pretty great. Many of their offerings were ones that you would see most anywhere around, they did carry some very special brews like: Avery Maharaja, DFH Bitch’s Brew and Saison Du Buff. The prices on those were high for sure, but it was cool that they had them. They had Founders Nemesis in bottle form as well as about 50 other bottled beers. I ordered a smoked salmon sandwich on rye. Very good, but the fries that came with it were pretty average. Finished off the night with a DFH Bitch’s Brew. Very good. The atmosphere was pretty cool in there. There was a sort of back room with some billiard tables and such. Cool place. This was second only to Mac’s - Steele Creek. I’d love to come back sometime.

Impressive tap selection. Liked that they offered a variety of North Carolina beers as well as an NC flight. Food was good but not great. Will be sure to make another visit the next time I am in Charlotte.

Great staff that take the time to learn your name. Awesome selection, they manage to be the first in town with seasonals and special releases. The food is always good. Prices are good for a bar, yeah I can find them for less but I won’t be getting the same atmosphere. Gets pretty crowded on weekends late night. Best time to come is a weekday afternoons and really enjoy the brews.

Visited here when I was working for Duck Rabbit four years ago. Pretty similar setup to the Raleigh location (and I imagine all locations, good amount of pretty good taps, probably at least 10 local/NC beers. I would never seek this place out but its better than your average bar in charlotte.

A great bar chain and the food was excellent. I had the German platter with two different sausages, slaw, and potatoe salad. probably the best I have had and I have been to Germany. Amazing beer selection, but maybe too many. I had so may types and samples I wasn’t able to keep track. The local Big Boss brands were great. My freinds had the philly cheesesteak and said it was good, not the best but above avergae for a bar. The bartender was very knowledable about beer but the waitresses were not.The prices seemed reasonable for most brews and on the cheaper side for a few of them.
