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.

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.

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.

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.

I visited late on a Friday night and didnít find it particularly busy. If youíve ever been to a Flying Saucer, you know the drill. Big, functional space filled with bros and commemorative plates. The tap list was pretty boring and didnít feature much stuff from Tennessee. I eventually settled on a local IPA that wasnít bad. The service was fine. Overall, I had an unexceptional experience at an entirely mediocre bar.

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.

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 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.

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.

I was impressed with the beer selection at this saucer, because it appeared to be much, much better than the saucer in my hometown of STL, and immediately pounced on an Anchor Christmas Ale. When the server brought a golden beer, I approached the bartender and told her that I had ordered an Anchor, she immediately said that the Anchor keg had blown, and to talk to the server. The server immediately apologized that she thought I had said Abita Chistmas.The three other guys with me looked at her in disbelief. It seemed painfully obvious that the server and bartender had agreed to substitute the Abita for the Anchor without telling me. I had heard rumors that Flying Saucers did this as a common practice, but I had been skeptical. I hope that mine was an isolated incident, and I dislike basing a review on one interaction, but if I ever go to another saucer, I will watch the bartender very closely when they draw the beer, and would suggest you do the same....caveat emptor.
