Only my second Flying Saucer visit, but I thought this was a pretty cool one. Really neat building in sort of a large dining hall/lounge...I believe this is a former train station? A little bit of a walk from the central downtown area, kind of tucked behind the Union Station hotel (neat looking place). Plates (saucers, more aptly, I suppose) all over the walls and ceiling.

Draft list is large and impressive. A lot of it seems to be rather static, but definitely a good selection of rotating/special/seasonal offerings, too. Definitely a focus on regional and local breweries there. Prices are decent enough, pretty much average for a good beer bar. They do flights as well, which I always appreciate.

Our first server seemed a bit worn out and disinterested, but she left/went on a break and the woman that relieved her was great, so no real complaints there.

Maybe a little bit on the loud and dark side if youíre just looking for a place to relax and have a beer, but it wasnít anything too crazy. And there was a hockey game that had just got out as we were arriving, a conference at the convention center, and it was Vanderbiltís homecoming weekend, so Iím sure that contributed to it as well.

First FS visit, after talking about it for years--canít wait to hit more. Long bar with a nice amount of tables, and they even have couches where you can relax (with a beer). Big tap list with a nice mix of locals and nationals. Very knowledgeable and friendly servers. Food was well above average. Perhaps a bit pricey and parking is a pain, but otherwise a pretty amazing joint. I will return (to here or others)

Limited parking right in front. The ambiance is big hall with plates all over the walls. Service was good. Pricing was reasonable for the pints pretty high for a sampler flight. Didnít have the food. Selection was good, but nothing really special. Online menu was a fair amount different than what was available.

Visited June 2014. This was my first ever visit to a FS and I was ready to relax after having a horrible visit to 12South. Chainy place, well-lit, lots of wood. Nice enough. Our server was nice and knowledgable enough. Good selection of taps as an out of towner. TONS of stuff I havenít had and a lot of locals. Tasty chain food. Average prices for food and beers. We had a good experience here for sure. I was happy and would definitely go back, especially over 12South.

Gorgeous building (ex-train station) , have to pay to park (I think we paid $7-$10). The beer list, while large, has no quality filter. Youíll see a wide, mainly regional, mix of "thatís good stuff"(Chimay) to "what were they thinking" beers.

This is a huge place in a very characterful building. Parking is a bitch, and they stiff you big time - $7 for the first 20 minutes?? Not the barís fault, of course, they donít operate the lot. And you can get your parking ticket stamped for a small discount. Inside, the service is excellent, at least two staff knew their beers thoroughly. A distributor was trying to sell them new products, so I was able to eavesdrop a bit. The selection is good, and included a number of the local breweries that I will not have a chance to visit on this trip. Food was average pub grub. Worth a stop.

This place is huge, and has a very large selection that, although isnít world class, is a great representation of the distribution quality in Nashville. The ambiance is almost always great, even when packed for a special event. The food is a bit better than average pub fare. Prices are always fair, and even if the special for the day is from an older keg, $2 pints are a great deal.

Stopped in on a Wednesday night. It was packed but it turns out it was trivia night which takes over the entire bar/restaurant. We were able to find the last table for four in the back. Beer selection was nice with a fair amount of local stuff. Nothing outstanding but solid offerings. Prices were about what I was expecting around $5/pint. They also offer a tasting flight of any five beers you want. Food selection was not outstanding. Rather limited with only around 15 different choices. Had a club sandwich which was nice and the hot german potato salad which was outstanding. The trivia night was kinda fun but made it hard to hear across the table.

This location is very nice, in a nice location. Parking is pretty much paid only though which is a pain. Service was good and selection is decent considering the local disti laws. Food was pub food and prices were a bit high but fine. Sad that this is the best rated in the state.
