Just like all the other Saucers. This one has the local beers and a lot of the macro, micro, and imports. However, they always seem to have a one-off New Belgium-this time the Le Fleur Misseur. I never see these at the Texas Saucers. Service at the bar was decent. Another good thing-no smoking inside now. This place used to almost uninhabitable for beer drinkers. Sweet.

I would have to agree with iLilKem/i below - the service was awful. It was like they were mad at us for coming in even though it was an hour and a half until closing. A server never came to us, the bartender had to as well. Maybe they were tired, but customer service is customer service. A large tap selection as well as bottles. It is all divided up by style on the menu which is nice. A lot of the best ones were in bottles which is more expensive. They had a lot of the local brewery Diamond Bear, New Belgium and other Colordao micros like Avery and Breckenridge. About three of the tap selections we asked about were out as well. Besides this, itís a cool environment inside and out (right on President Bill Clinton Ave - I think where the other cross street besides Markham is Lewinsky :) The chips con queso was good.

i would have liked this place if A) we could get someone to wait on us in less than 20 minutes and B) they had a decent tap list that actually showed what they had on tap. so many things were either out or not on draught yet. Had some Rogue, New Belgium (which is readily available just about anywhere here), Abita, and a few other belgians. Probably one of the better selections in Little Rock but Iíd rather hit up the brewpubs where I couldnít get that kind of beer everywhere else in the USA. didnít try the food.

Just like any other Flying Saucer. Great Beer selection, Hot waitresses in mini kilts. Service needed some attention but food was good. Trivia night was great. Over all, I would go back next time I am in LR.

Definately better than the Memphis Saucer. They have a big basement with cushy leather furniature and pool tables. Plus the selection is better. They have a couple of the Fullerís ales and Triple Karmeliet. Try the german potato salad. Delicious!

I was unimpressed with this location. It is extremely smoky and cramped, as compared to the Memphis location, very noisy and staff seems to have better things to do, like talk amongst themselves.

What a fun place! Cool ambiance, though more tvs than Iíd prefer. Our server wasnít too beer savvy, but when I asked questions she sought out the answers, so that was very awesome. She even printed out a little description of a beer that I was asking about. They did have Maredsous 8 when I was there, so that was a bonus. As well, they had Diamond Bear beers, brewed just down the street. Great chocolate dessert too.

The Flying Saucer in Little Rock certainly must be on any beer loverís "must stop" list when in this part of the country. Ambiance was good, with enough light to judge oneís beer by (as well as to gaze at the waitresses in their short-short Catholic school girl skirts). The service was top notch. Lance, the bartender who waited on me, was attentive and very knowledgeable about the house selections as well as beer styles as a whole. Upon discovering they were out of Maredsous 8 on tap (sad!), he immediately suggested and provided a sampler of Spaten Optimator. While a Doppelbock is certainly not a Belgian Strong Ale, it was a good pairing considering the sizeable selection available. Though many of the on-tap beers were mass-markets (I know, you need to sell what people drink!), there were a number of fine selections available, particularly those from American micro-breweries. The special the night I was there was a 23-ounce glass for the price of a pint. I had dinner there as well, and the food was excellent and reasonably priced. Overall, a great place to stop when in Little Rock (not the land of great beer, sadly), and I look forward to my next business trip (and hopefully a glass of the Maredsous).
