a good beer bar, but really a nasty restaurant. the employees are amazing, itís just a corporate franchise deal. taps are not the most well maintained either. if i wasnít so against drinking and driving i would go more on the special nights and whatnot, but to get the most out of the spot you really need a ride home. for the record, the food is prepared well, they are just shitty typical dishes.

This is your typical Flying Saucer. Great bottle list, and a few dozen beers on tap. A good mix of local and national beers. Some hard to get. Service was good, food was good. This is an Oasis in a beer wasteland dominated by Boulevard.

Apparently if you choose your own sample flight instead of going with one of their default flights they charge you $25. Thatís insane. I could have gotten full pours of everything I sampled for around $30. When I saw the bill that kind of killed it for me; I donít think Iíd ever go back to one of these.
Apart from that the food was decent and the service was fairly good even though the place was crowded as heck.

Visited during a recent trip to Kansas City. This bar is located in what seems to be a fun district of downtown KC, the Power & Light District, and is a short stroll away from a horde of other restaurants and bars. It is also right next door to a parking garage that, at least the Friday evening I was there, offered all-night parking for $2, which is always a plus for a downtown spot!
The tap list is extensive, the bottle list not so much - approximately as many bottles on hand as taps. Bar staff seem to know their beer, which is unfortunately not a given at many craft bars. Thereís a bit of a kitschy vibe, with much of the place wallpapered with "saucers" that people apparently earn by ticking 200 different beers on site, and three times in the couple hours I was there, new "saucers" were unveiled with much ado - overhead speaker announcing, bells ringing at the bar, and so forth. The place was fairly crowded, but thatís to be expected for a downtown spot on a weekend evening. The food menu is standard pub fare, burgers and appetizers.
The tap list included some harder to find beer, and it looks like they try to have something unique on hand at all times, in addition to an apparent focus on Missouri and Kansas beer.
Would return if ever back in town.

Visited here a while back. Typical Flying Saucer. They did selected flights that were pretty good. Nothing too rare but definitely worth a visit if you are in town. Food was good too.

What seems to be a somewhat newer Flying Saucer. I pretty typical set up with large seating area and bar. Selection was good but the menu was quite outdated and even the new arrivals on the board was outdated. Beyond that service was fine. Food was standard pub fare and prices were in line with what was expected. Worth it for the selection.

Friendly waitresses and large beer selection. Decent menu that is not overpriced. Trivia night on Tuesdays is something you donít want to miss!

Standard saucer with nice mix of local stuff and imports , I wish they would list what they have by brewer not just style . Food is decent bar food.

Stopped in here on a Sunday afternoon. Service was a little slow, but the bartender knew her stuff. Did not eat so no judgement there.
There is really nothing that sticks out as bad about this place, however it is a bit "corporate-ish" for my taste. I prefer my bar personality to ooze and refine itself with age, not to be packaged and handed to me.
That said, the selection was good and featured many local offerings. The menu was laid out differently as it did not have separate listings for bottle vs. draft.
