Was a little shocked when I first walked in because it was extremely busy. This was understandable though because it was trivia night and the NBA Eastern Conference Finals were on. No worries, I finally found a spot at the bar and was promptly asked if I needed some help. The bartenders are extremely friendly and were generously giving me tasters of different beers once they realized how into beer I was. Huge selection of taps and bottles, with some pretty quality stuff. My favorite thing about this place is the numerous flight options you can choose from, plus you can build your own. Awesome. The only knock I had was it was very loud, but I kind of enjoyed it that night. A great place to catch a game with friends, but get there early because you seat yourself and space is limited on a busy night. Great food and great prices. This was my favorite spot in Houston because of the great service and fun atmosphere. If I was going out with my wife I would probably hit the Hay Merchant, but if you want to try a bunch of different beers and have a lively night, this is the place to go. Great people and a lot of fun.

The Flying Saucer is a great place to go and have a beer. Pick a beer, any beer. They probably have it. A massive beer menu coupled with a great location and you get a fun place to hang out. They have a large amount of indoor seating, but donít let that fool you, this place fills up. Their food is nothing to write home about, average bar fare, nothing more, nothing less. If I just want to hang out and enjoy a beer Iíve probably missed elsewhere, I come to the Flying Saucer.

A large place with lots of seating that manages to always seem busy. Staff is helpful and usually good. Selection is great and it rotates quickly. Samplers are available. Food is so so but I do enjoy the chili cheese fries! Price are solid if not great.

Great for downtown. Downtown Houston sucks, and this is a diamond in the rough. I had a better experience with the service when I sat at the bar instead of with the usual bimbo table service. Seemed like the place was hopping on a Tuesday night, some suits in the crowd. Value was good for Houston downtown.

Sometimes the service is lacking because there busy but otherwise one of the biggest beers selections in Houston and if you go on the right night great prices as well.

Very large beer emporium with many different taps and bottled selections. Sometimes a tiny bit pricey, otherwise really great place with attractive waitresses. They have a cover charge and is often crowded.

In Houston you donít have too many options and if you put the blinders on and just think about the beer, its a decent place. Itís pretty cheesy overall by Colorado, California and Oregon standards. The people are nice and fairly well informed. Beer is served nicely.

Typical saucer-non smoking a plus. Great selection of up and coming Texas breweries, including 512, Jester King, Ranger Creek. Loads of other taps as already mentioned. Horrible parking-bring money. Lets the BA guys have their tastings there-good PR. Bartenders are knowledgeable and attentive when sitting at the bar-samples are available. Good beer bar.

Flying saucer does a lot of things right and a lot of things that make me wouder why? You donít need to dress the girls like that, it makes it feel like amateur hour in there. If I wanted hooters Iíd just go to hooters. The beer selection is second to none in Houston so I go when in town, but I never feel good about it. Food is mediocre. Atmosphere is about the same.
