Lively place, fun crowd, friendly staff. Lots of local beers, all were pretty average. Food was OK, nothing special. Come here for the atmosphere and local ticks.

Looks a lot like the other locations with the plates on the wall and the waitresses dressed like slutty teenagers. Decent beer list. Voluminous but nothing too rare and not much local stuff. Being that itís a block from Beale itís really loud on a Thursday night. Better when itís quiet.

December 2010. Perhaps one of the nicer-looking Saucerís Iíve been too -- just a block off of Beale. Excellent selection -- including the Lazy Magnolia Sweet Potato stout Iíd been seeking. The waitress was hot, showed me all her tattoos, and knew her beer. Food was OK. Bit smoky. Good stop.

Great open air atmosphere with couches and picnic style tables in addition to a bar. The selection is great, especially the 75 taps. I did not order food, but it looked pricey. Very helpful waitstaff.

Visited in summer 2008 - just off Beale in Memphis. Great selection of taps, fun atmosphere in one of the best party areas in the country.

My wife and I visited here on a Friday night. Conveniently located just a block north of Beale Street, and it was 2 blocks from our hotel. The inside is a lot like the other Flying Saucers Iíve been to, so no surprises there- big main room with the saucer plates all over the walls and ceiling. The only problem with the atmosphere was that the place smelled like a deep fryer, and that stuck in our clothes. At least it was smoke free. The waitress was nice but not necessarily the most knowledgeable. The tap list was solid and we took advantage of some southern labels not available in the Midwest, like Yazoo and Lazy Magnolia. There were no crazy standouts, though. Just a lot of solid stuff. The food was not bad but nothing special; average pub fare. Good specials throughout the week for some nice discount taps. Overall, probably the best beer place to visit in Memphis.

Easy to find location at corner of Peabody and Second. Remodeled older building with patio with tables and stools in the front and main bar inside. Freindly service with good knowledge and very easy on your eyes. Do have over 130 taps and good selection of bottles. I found 5 new beers. Did not have food, but 70 % of space is for food so I assume it is good. Front patio is good place to have a beer, smoke a cigar and watch the street action. Nice location.

My visit was early in the afternoon during a weekday. The place was pretty quiet but by the time I left at 4:00 PM I could tell this place gets loud and hectic as the traffic on Beale Street picks up. With the open windows you have a great view of everything that goes on.

Monday nights are $2.75 pints on most drafts if you happen to be there on the right day. I wasnít but even at $4.50 the local beers were reasonably priced. Nothing on the menu was outrageously expensive. The selection covered a nice range of styles though I didnít see any particularly big beers. Either distribution of some familiar brands has not made it this far south or they have some caps on those styles. Nonetheless youíll be able to find something you like.

The main reason to come here is for the local offerings. In one visit you can tick off Mississippi (Lazy Magnolia) and Tennessee (Yazoo and Ghost River) as well as a couple of other states if you so please. Service is fast, the wait staff is friendly, and with plenty of seating options you should have no problem finding a place unless it is at capacity.

Nice place, similar to the Nashville outpost only smaller. Food options are limited but well thought out and of good quality. Usinger brats are excellent and cheese and beer pairngs are very nice. Selection is wide but does have a lot of less than stellar options. Service was attentive and generally knowledgeable and opinionated about the beer. Good fresh draught options and lots of bottles. Nice place with live music and a lively crowd.

Very typical Saucer. Good beer selection. Lots on draft. Lots of bottles. Nice staff and good atmosphere. Cute little girls in sexy little outfits. Their pepperoni pizza slice is huge, not overly greasy, and spicy! My bartender (whitney?) was really nice and let me sample a bunch of things. She also was semi-knowledgable about the beers. I really liked the chess and dominoes they had decorating above the bar. Nice touch. Good luck finding any street parking though...
