Second time I have been to one of these places (other time in Memphis). This was the first time I have eaten a meal here though. Great beer selection - probably 20-30 on tap, with lots more in bottle. All different styles and from all different places around thw world. The food menu is OK I guess, mostly bar kind of foods. Defintiely worth going here if you are looking for a variety of beers.

This place was alright, more of a detination for quantity then quality. Iíll be back here because the selection is much better then most of what else is around, but I wasnít particularly impressed. Our service was mediocre, just like the rest of the place. Eh...

Had a quick additional note, an earlier review was quoting prices that were really high, I believe this review was rather confused, and was quoting 750 ml bottle prices as draft pint prices (A pretty big mistake if you as me, to quote this previous reviewer). I didnít love the place, but those comments made it seem like the place was trying to rip off all their patrons, and thatís just not right.

Nice place right in the heart of the river market district. Huge tap and bottle selection, you can get Diamond Bear on tap here as well. Easily the best place for a beer in the state. Simple pub food available.

Beer list is extensive on tap and in the cooler. Ambiance: in an old block of the city with lots of cool stuff sitting around the bar, plates for "accomplished drinker recognition" all over, and the funniest T-shirts on the staff and available for purchase. Unfortunately the staff is not knowledgable about the beer. The food is good bar quality, though not great restaurant quality.

Selection is pretty good although many of the beers are way over priced. I live in Portland, OR, so I understand that the availability of great beer relative to that of Little Rock is much better, however the price on many pints were substantially higher than what I would expect to pay for a 22 oz or sixer in Rouge beers for $19 a pint...various belgiums for $16 a pint...even Boulevard out of Kansas City were going for $16 a pint. That said, my bigger issue with this place is the lack of beer knowledge for a place that seems to want to be beer experts. As an example two of us at our table were served German Hefe-Weizen with lemons and one of us was served an American style Hefe without a lemon. When asked for a lemon for his Widmere Hefe he was told by the waitress that the reason they served them this way was because of the difference in styles. I didnít bother to explain to her that they have it backwards...nothing that a quick google search wouldnít clear up for them. Also they listed Shipyard Brewery as being from Portland Oregon on their menu when in fact it is in Portland Maine...pretty big mistake if you ask me. Still yet, Iím sure itís the best thing going in Little Rock where beer is concerned.

Waitresses are ignorant of what kinds of beer theyíre serving. Food is standard bar fare (a bit overpriced). Beer selection is good; once in a while will see a really good beer that is rare for the region. Upstairs is incredibly noisy, downstairs is better but can get smoky. Cover charge on some weekends is stupid. Pint Night is a great value.

The ambiance is not bad, with decors of plates and little trinkets on the walls and ceiling. The service was so-so...I was put off by the scantily clad waitresses. Kinda made the place feel like a sleazy bar. Selection of beers were also not that great, the smoked salmon was a little off and not fresh. Pretty disappointing.

Ah, the Saucer. If youíve been to one, youíve been to most. Once you run the gauntlet through the front smoking area youíre home free. Tap list was average at best and some of the local Diamond Bear offerings were out(?). Better than expected service for a Monday night. You know what youíre getting in to before you arrive. Nice people at this one though.

Atmosphere at the Saucer is like any other in the Flying Saucer franchise - saucers on the walls, beer bottles lining the walls, etc. Nothing special here. Crowd is very young late at night, so try to enjoy your beers during the day or at supper. Several hundred beers to choose from but the draughts are sometimes "off" in taste. Iíve had this numerous times and complained, but they swear the tap lines are cleaned weekly. The bottled beers taste fine, so itís not the glassware. Arkansas beers have a strong presence on tap which is good for the local spirit, but unfortunately some of the Diamand Bear beers are marginal and they do not carry a single beer from Boscoís (whose brewpub is one block away). Staff is significantly undertrained when it comes to beer knowledge. Itís either funny or condescending when they try to describe a beer to you. They also serve you another "similar" beer if your requested beer is kicked. I ordered a Whitebread and they brought me John Courage. Hmm. Food is standard pub fare, though the cheese dip is a guaranteed source for digestive problems later (Iíve confirmed this with several locals who go there and figured this out independently of me). One of the best places in Little Rock for beer but donít have high expectations.

Iíve visited a few times since I arrived in Little Rock. Pretty cool vibe, except it can get crowded a little later on a Friday night. This can lead to a lack of service. Otherwise the waitress are all scantily clad, attractive, and also helpful. Selection is good for Arkansas (better than my home state though...), a good wide variety as well. Food was good, I had the buffalo chicken wrap last time and enjoyed it. Pretty good prices for just about everything. Nice place overall I will visit again.
