I love the Flying Saucer. Itís a cozy, welcoming place. The waitresses are beautiful and genuinely friendly. A nearly perfect beer bar.

This is probably one of my favorite drink halls. Great selection and good staff. The food was typical bar food, but very well done. Their beer selection was fantastic, especially considering I had not expected to find such an establishment in Columbia.

Came here on St. Pattys day. It was pretty low key. Food selection was good and they did have some unique choices. The draught list had many quality selections. They have a nice outdoor patio. Last time I came they had Mephistopheles stout on draft; which blew my mind, mainly because it was in South Carolina. Definitely the best place in town for good food and beer

I like going here. Yea, the service isnít always that great and the waitstaff are there just for looks, but I only really go for the beer. They have 82 beers or so on tap, but there could be more craft beers and rarities. There should be more local beers though. The food is just bar food. Some of the stuff is decent, like the quesadilla, chips and queso, and a couple sandwiches. Some of these reviewers act like this place is supposed to have good food or something. Anyhow, I go to get my name on the wall and to drink some beer that I normally wouldnít get to taste.

Nice place and a lot of beers on selection. But the staff is a little rude. Worth going though.

This bar is usually very crowded with huge beer selection. The issue is that more than half of the beers are a waste of tap space because they can either be found in your local grocery store or poor quality. Iíd rather see more US craft beers from quality breweries than a bunch of imported lagers/pilsners equivalent to Bud Light. Food is average.

The service was pretty good, could have been slightly better, but nothing to complain about. The selection was huge for Columbia, SC. Lots of great choices, all within their legal limit. Beers were served for the price on the menu in 23 ounce glasses for some reason. You would think that would be a plus, but only being able to drink two beers before you have to call it a night and head out was a little dissapointing. Much better IMO are the standard 16 ounce pints you find elsewhere.

Off the bat, the selection is probably the best you will find in Columbia. However, there is some give and take; to take the selection, you have to give up some ambiance and service (on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights - yes prime beer drinking times and expected to be busy, but they are typically even slower than you would expect). I havenít had the food there. The prices seem to slide to the high-side, which is expected given the focal point being an immense beer selection and the fact you canít really get the same selection anywhere else in town (on a sheer numbers level; you can find some places with good quality craft beer). Trivia is really fun and usually the time when I have the most fun at the Saucer. Other enjoyable times are before the late evening and late night busy periods, times where you can sit back, sample through a variety of beers, and have attentative service since it isnít busy.

Pros: Great selection, attractive & skimpily attired waitstaff, convenient downtown location. Cons: chain restaurant ambiance, average bar food.
