Visited 5/31/06. Wife and I had dinner here. Great beer selection, though weird way they break down the beers, they use the Standard Reference Method (Pale, amber, dark) to classify beers and have a unique pricing chart on the menu. Using symbols to represent prices, prices from 3.00 to 26.00, Good mix of local, national, international beers here. Canít imagine not finding something you like here. Kind of kitchie, lots of stuff on walls, hanging from ceiling, dark and smokey inside, they do have a patio area to sit outside. Big bar area 25 - 30 chairs and tables too. It is loud when full. Itís a sit yourself policy for finding tables. Waitress was good and prompt. Knew one of the beers was out as soon as I asked for it. Food was Ok, very limited menu. Apps and a couple sandwiches mainly. We had some buffalo chicken and a couple of the pizza slices. The pizza slices are about 1/4 of a decent size pizza and were Ok. I had the Edenton big boss ipa, Cotton wood endo ipa and the Duck-Rabbit milk stout. If you want the biggest beer selection in Raleigh this is it. Some street parking is available and ther are a couple pay lots right next door. Near the Clarion hotel in the downtown area. Worth a visit if in Raleigh. 06/03/08 Just to add on some comments now that Iíve gone here several times. Line cleaning seems to be an issue, Iíve had several beers that taste like someone just plugged in a new keg. This Saucer has a very small kitchen and it shows, food is fairly lame.brought down foods score and overall score to reflect my opinion. I keep trying, but I just donít like this place,

Big, big selection. Lots of local beers and stuff from all over the States. A flight of five beers will run you between $8 and $10. Also, the flights are predetermined, but the bartender had no problem subbing one out for me. The service was really good considering how busy they were. It looks like they have an efficient system going on behind the bar. Not only a must hit for visitors, but one that I would hit again and again if I was a local.

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.

This is a great Saucer location - the service was some of the best Iíve received at any of their locations, lots of local Raleigh brews as well as stuff from all over.

Sat at a picnic table outside, with a shitty view. The crowd was college kids and some older apparent beer geeks. Great draft and bottle beer selection. The food was mediocre, and the service was rather slow. Very crowded. Worth a trip to see their bee menu.

This place is all about the beer, and thatís the way it should be. It gets REALLY loud in there, and can be hard to find a seat some times. But the beer selection is rather amazing for a bar, and the staff are great. Definitely should ask about being a member of the UFO club - you get to keep track of all the beers youíve had at this place, and if you try 200 different ones, you get your name on a plate that goes on the wall and $100 towards an unveiling party. Food is OK, and there isnít much of a selection of it. Not a place I would go for a dinner, but great for a happy hour.

Great place, great beer, great food, and, at the risk of sounding horribly sexist, lovely waitresses in short plaid skirts. Service only suffered a bit during the most busy times, and the waitstaff we spoke to knew the beer menu pretty well. I want to dig it up and put it in my backyard.

Though I was rather drunk when I arrived, several things stood out. Good beer list, good food and HOT waitresses. Was able to get Duck-Rabbit Paulís Day Off, and a tasty sandwich served by a gorgeous brunette in knee high socks and a short plaid miniskirt. Yes it was rather busy between WBF sessions but we got taken care of rather nicely. Iíll definitely go back next time Iím in town!

I love going down to visit friends in Raleigh if for no other reason than getting to visit the Saucer. A great selection of beer and a pretty knowledgable staff. Food wise all I had was the pretzel, but it was pretty damn good. We sat outside, but it is smoky as hell inside. Oh, and the uniforms for staff are a plus.

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.
