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, I was able 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.

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.
