Pretty cool place...wish we had one where I live. Lots of good beer with good flights for people not knowing what they want or wanting to try different beers other than the flights normal places do. I got one from Germany with all beers I have never heard of.

Large place, lots of buzz and people. Huge selection of good local and international brews. Ok service but not the place I want to hang out every day.

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.

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.

Big selection. Atmosphere is a little bare, but has a good feel.

Pretty huge draught selection. The waitresses outfits pander to boner-ism to an almost annoying degree. They have some pretty cool events and the foods not half bad either.

If you donít like having attractive young waitresses serving you all kinds of interesting brews -- donít visit the Flying Saucer.
The FS is hands-down the best selection of beers in Raleigh metro area. $3 draughts on Monday is a great deal -- also, ask your server about the UFO club.
The wait staff is comprised of attractive college-age young ladies -- at least one of them is knowledgeable about beers.
The food is better than expected -- try the brat-pretzel or the goat cheese pizza.

A ridiculous amount of beers on tap. I have been going to this location since 2004, and they keep changing up the lines and offering new and exciting beers. Their keep the glass night is fun and sometimes are very unique. Canít beat their 3 dollar pint night on monday and sunday is NC beers are 3 as well as brunch for beer knurds is free! Well worth the drive if you are even remotely close by.

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.
