Stopped in on my way to the Untapped festival. Pretty typical decor for a flying saucer with a nice outdoor area that was unfortunately not used due to the rain. Server was helpful and knowledgeable on what was available. A strong selection, but not the best among Flying Saucerís. Prices were good, a was the traditional Flying Saucer fare. A nice stop in downtown Ft. Worth.

Visiting from Chicago I was pleasantly surprised with the beer selection. 80 Tappers and anywhere from 150-300 different bottle selections. Food is good and the service is good. Nice patio when the weather is nice. Look forward to the next visit.

A great place for Texas beer. Visted on a Thursday night. Band was playing outside and had a large crowd. Found a seat at the bar and tried a number of local brews. Food was good. Service was excellent. I believe a must stop.

This is an amazing place. On a business trip to Ft Worth I visited for lunch. They open at 11 AM. There is a large outside treed area that was pleasant even on a hot day. Homer was my bartender and he was helpful in selecting beers from Texas for me to try. The fish tacos were excellent. This is the place to visit in Ft Worth. We visted again with my brother prior to a MNF when the Redskins beat the Cowboys.. We were impressed with the $3 beers on tap. This is a wonderful place to taste new beers.

Inviting interior has plenty of seating, and patio has lots of tables for when the weather is pleasant. Selection is extensive, emphasizing local brews. Service is quick and efficient. They have live music sometimes, but it is not too loud. Food is mostly typical bar farebut well-done and with some good vegetarian selections. Definitely a must if you live in - or are visiting - the DFW area.

I have visited Dallas for work about 20 times over the past 15 years, and for some reason I have always had the urge to visit Fort Worth. This week, I had multiple hours to kill before a flight, so decided to swing over to the Flying Saucer. Located right in the heart of downtown Fort Worth, the first thing I noticed was the huge outdoor patio and stage on the side of the bar. I am sure this is a great spot on a warm day. The interior is typical Flying Saucer with a big bar, tables around the outside, and plates all around the wall. Like most Flying Saucerís, the draft list was solid. The interior of this location seemed a lot more comfortable and pub like versus others I have visited. Nice spot.
82 = ★★★Ĺ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Enjoyed the new location in downtown FW. Lots of seating and a giant outdoor area with a big screen. Good mixture of popular brews and locals. Stays pretty busy on the weekends and sometimes you just have to sit down at a dirty table until the waitress can clean it up. If you donít have a seat then someone else will.

NOW IN A NEW LOCATION! The address on this is incorrect, they have moved exactly one block north to the old 8.0 location. We couldnít find it - as they are knocking down their current building to put a "shopping mall" facility on the block they used to be on.
Stop #3 after WOB Arlington, and Gman FW. At both WOB And Gman, we decided we would never, ever go there if they were in our neighborhood.
The Flying Saucer, particularly in its new location was quite different though. At their former spot on 4th Street it was always cramped - making it hard to find seating. The new location is quite spacious, with lots of seating choices both indoors and out. With the doors open to the outdoors, the fresh air that came indoors made it even more pleasant.
And despite their busy atmosphere, the bartenders were pleased to interact with us and give their opinions of beers we hadnít tasted before.
I am pleased to see that the new location has improved an already great place!

I think I like this Flying Saucer because itís in a re-purposed building and it doesnít FEEL like a franchise Flying Saucer. They have live music (huge plus) and I like all the different rooms you can choose from to chill out and plant some roots. The service is typical, and the selection would be better if they werenít always out of 1/2 the menu. I think of three beers I want before ordering.
