If youíve seen one Flying Saucer youíve seen them all. Lots of wood and polished brass and plates as far as the eye can see. Apparently if you drink something like 200 different beers you get a plate with your name on it and the chance to write something pithy. Tons of taps lots of bottles. Nothing too out there although they had a number of local taps which is always appreciated. The food was solid although insanely overpriced. I got like 8 wings for $8 and weíre not talking Quaker steak here. As mentioned in the previous post the fact that the waitresses are all required to dress like 13 year old reform school students with barely there skirts is off putting. I think we can all enjoy craft beer without the environment of casual sexism.

April 2007, the night before the World Beer Festival -- one word review: awesome! Superb beer list wtih a huge number of quality brews available on tap. The menu is limited, but we ate was good. The service was attentive, if she didnít know much about beer. This is a MUST stop in Raleigh, just be prepared for a loud place.

This is not as big as their location in Nashville, but has easily has as many beers. Taps galore and I was here on $2.50 pint night. The waitresses did their uniforms justice. At about 10pm there were no seats to be had. My only problem with the Saucer, and this goes for every location Iíve visited, is that the beer is old more often than not. Iím always weary about ordering anything hoppy and I try to stick to the "new draft" list. Not bad if I can do that. The lox sandwich is way better than I wouldíve ever expected from this joint.

Bleh. Lots of saucers! All over the walls and ceiling. Food quality average and overpriced. Great beer selection, but I was a bit peeved when they took my beer order of a beer that was posted on a chalkboard, only to inform me later that they had been out since two days before. Service friendly but inept.

I have been to this place 3 times now, and it is great if youíre up for trying new beers on tap (or in bottle). The other night they had 81 draught selections. In addition, you can create your own flights. The food is typical pub fare. Staff are very helpful, but it is very busy in there, especially Thur through Sat night, so they do their best to move quickly.

On the way to Charleston, stayed over in Raleigh and had to stop here. Damn cool place with a ton of local beers. About 50 taps or so and plenty of sampler options. The bartenders and manager were awesome, had a great time and will definitely have to stop back through. Food is pretty damn good as well.

Iíve no idea how many dozens of times Iíve been here since moving to NC a decade ago, but itís a lot, Jack. And itís always been a reliable place to bend the elbow, even before the local beer scene heated up. Dark wood ambiance, long tables, not too obtrusive telly presence, and tons of breweriana. Food is perfunctory at best but the service has always been good. Usually a terrific selection of state, national, and international craft, with a smattering of rarities at any given time.

Just off the centre, unpromising from the outside and a bit of a barn inside but a superb range of beers - US and imported - and simple long bar makes this a great place to while away half a day. Nice staff too.

Got there fairly early on Friday before the WBF, and glad we did - It got crowded pretty quick. Nevertheless, we thought the service was pretty good - our waitress was attentive and kept our glasses full. Selection was good, was albe to find a nice mix of new stuff and old favorites. Overall, Iím guessing this is pretty typical of Flying Saucers - and thatís a good thing.

Been here a few times after WBF and for special events. Big selection, which is nice, but only a few that stand out for this beer knurd. Waitresses are required to wear sexy little mini skirts which is nice when you are drunk and seems more sexist when youíre sober. Very bustling and busy which is a little off-putting for me, but I understand. Lot of rabbits hopping around Raleigh making babies. Cheese fries are also delish when drunk.
