It's loud! It's open seating so you have to fight for a seat when it's crowded. Service seems rushed but they do get food and beer out fast once you order. The beer selection is excellent with a great selection of craft, local and international beers. Forgive me but why do people bring their babies here?!! Did I mention it's loud?!

Downtown in the dead downtown that is Houston. Didnít expect much, but the Texas list was good and they had Lone Pint Yellow Rose, which was one I was looking for. This was the best craft beer place I found downtown.

Large and loud, with a broad but standard selection. A few noteworthy things on tap and nice food. Cool place.

Flying Saucer location in downtown Houston. Nice long bar with plenty of seating. Hipster vibe. I sat at the bar and had a couple of beers and an app. Service was prompt and friendly. Nice selection; well organized and laid out by style. Lots of local and regional beers on the list. Food was good. Worth visiting if you are staying in downtown Houston.

Finally got to check this place out. Cool atmosphere, open, large building, interesting decor. Menu is well managed, with an up to date tap list. Extensive taps and bottle list. Had some interesting bottles, nothing super rare but still impressive for Houston. Food was good, especially the queso fondue. Prices were decent, nothing too overpriced. Will be back.

Picture a TGI Fridays with 80 taps. Disappointingly few Texas or regional beers. Bartenders seem pretty unaware of what they have, from the specific beers to flavor profiles. The food is bar food. The volume is unnecessarily loud. Disappointing.

Big style pour house. Lots and lots of tap selection. $3 local texas pints.pushy service. Expensive flights. Some beers on should have been pulled so too many taps not tuning over.

Visited on Tuesday 21/05/13 around 9pm. Downtown location and packed to the rafters we managed to grab 2 seats together at the bar. Tap list was fine but no match when compared to the Hay Merchant, allied to the fact Iíd visited the HM first which meant there were only a dozen or so new ticks for me having taken care of a lot of the TX stuff already there. I enquired about tasting flights but as per the Ginger Man they seemed to be predetermined choices. The 86 taps does however include quite a bit of filler. There was a pub quiz going on over one side of the venue. Ok place, doesnít come close to the Hay Merchant but much better than the Ginger Man for me.

Quite a large place, unfortunately that comes with the large noise too. Nice selection of beers, and service knows their stuff. Manager come to discuss my quest and helped me out with a bottle of beer from Virginia next day. Thanks.

After not actually making it in here for months and months of Houston trips, I was finally at a downtown area hotel and was able to get here twice last week. Really enjoyed the beers they had for (512) day, and thought they had some other interesting stuff come in as well. Compared to other Saucers I have visited, I would say the list is comparable or maybe a little better. Atmosphere is the same pretty much. A nice stop (and basically the only stop) in the nearby/downtown area.
