Great place-love how its right on the shore of a very scenic lake. easy to get to and some great beers. very big place-can sit alot of people. have daily specials and seem to rotate through their taps pretty quickly. If the beer is in TX, it will be at this bar. I definatley enjoyed this place.

Gotta love a place directly on the lake, so this one gets immediate points for location. Selection is on par with the Ft Worth location and generally better than the Addison one. I had a great time last year at their Summer Beer Fest and got to try lots of beers. The service hasnít wowed me during any of my visits. Food is lacking.

Great location right on the lake and next to Bass Pro Shops. When the weather is nice, have a pint on the outside covered patio overlooking Lake Ray Hubbard. The selection is about like the other Flying Saucers, but the limited beers seem to stay on tap a little bit longer at this location. Decent food, but nothing to write home about. If you like other Flying Saucer locations, you will like this one.

Got there at 6:30 and the patio was already packed but itís definitely nice view out there. Decent selection of brews and the service was good. The food was about average.

Not bad, not bad at all. Stopped by on Christmas night. A nice little stop with a fair amount of folks included. The bartender seemed to know his stuff, even though I educated him on a bit of info. This place seemed like a mix between the Flying Saucer and Joeís Crab Shack. Odd, yet comfortable. Do as you will.

Bad news: Not the most competent or motivated of the Flying Saucer employees. First food experience says it isnít very exciting.
Good news: It is far enough away that the rare taps donít get hit as hard. St Arnolds Divine Reserve #9 was on tap without fanfare as was Avery Dugana and many others that would certainly be gone in Addison.
Outdoor patio view of the lake is quite spectacular and worth the trip itself.

I actually like the location here a bit better than the Addison one. It feels newer, and also has a great patio. No smoking is a huge plus.
Service is really attentive, but sometimes the knowledge here is lacking. Iíve been served the wrong beer on more than one occasion, but itís also been corrected when I asked.
I havenít eaten here, but I assume itís quite good just like the other Saucer locations.
Value for draft beers is pretty good, but bottles tend to be a bit overpriced.
I like this location and recommend it for a combination of great beer drinking with a nice patio atmosphere!

I am normally a big fan of Flying Saucer, but the service at this location keeps holding me back. They have the typical endless selection of draft beers, but their waitstaff is typically terribly unaware of the current menu. Add that to unattentive service, and I typically avoid this place. After going for 3 straight days shortly after it opened and getting terrible service (waiting 30+ minutes for refills, etc.) on each day, I only go back once a quarter or so, and the service level has not changed. I would avoid this place unless you feel like constantly flagging down waitresses for another $5 beer.
Re-Rate: 12/20/2010: Service has improved a good bit in the last 6 months or so, as apparently someone got the memo. Best beer patio in Big D!

Visited a couple of months after they opened this location. I am used to Flying Saucer Houston. I assumed this would be at least as great. Umm, not even close. What a joke. Located in Suburbia, the staff and servers have no clue about what they serve or what strong ranked brews they can offer, or what they taste like. The selection was a joke compared to Houston. What we did get wasnít even fresh. And how do you screw up a Turkey Reuben sandwich??? The same thing I get at the Houston Saucer all the time. I barely ate half due to gristle. The servers we had were dumb and vacuous with no knowledge of good beer, and slow to boot. I held my head in shame because I had brought a guest there after talking up the great service and selection of the Saucer. Not this one. A joke. An embarrassment actually. I will not visit again. Come to Houston to learn how to train your servers and what customer service means.
