Itís another Flying Saucer, what do you want? The waitresses know jack about beer and when itís crowded, you wait forever for beer. That being said, you might catch me here on a weeknight for trivia or something.
Unfortunately the smoking takes away from the total ambiance of the place. The Fort Worth location feels a bit more nostalgic as well. I understand the motivation to allow smoking however. Itís Addison and itís a crowd they want to cater to.
The service at the Addison location from the beer goddesses is superb. Bar service isnít bad either. In general though, I think the overall level of knowledge isnít near what The Moth or The Common Table are. Some of the seasoned beer goddesses though definitely know their stuff.
Selection is pretty wide, both in bottles and draft. It doesnít have the rarities of The Moth, but I also donít expect it to. The menu could be updated occasionally though to feature some new beers.
Food is actually pretty darn good. The pizza is worth having, as are several of the sandwiches. Definitely a step up from most pubs.
Overall, a worthy spot to visit if youíre in Addison. Itís probably the best beer bar within several miles.
Only been once but was the least enjoyable of the 4 FSís Iíve been to. Crazy busy & loud with the service problems that go with it. Selection didnít seem to be on par with the other FSís. But I still managed to get a couple of good choices.
My least favorite of all the area saucers, which is a damn shame since I live ridiculously close to it. It gets crazy loud and echoes inside. especially when busy. They tend to get the least interesting special one of kegs out of all 3 area saucers but overall the selection is decent. The service is hit or miss - really there are only a few waitresses and one, maybe 2 bartenders who consistently do a good job. Still better than many area bars, I just wish it was better.
Solid beer establishment that is on par with the other Flying Saucers. It has the typically massive beer selection, average but well priced food, and service is typically good most of the time. This location has a good patio out front when the weather is nice. Parking can get difficult during peak times, and they have been known to charge cover charges when bands are playing there. Definitely the best beer joint in the immediate area as the rest of the landscape is dominated by either chain restaurants that offer the generic distributorís offerings (blegh!) or fine dining places that are wine/cocktails only.
December 2010. Although like any Saucer, this place had a long list of beer offerings, this was the least impressive Iíd seen in terms of unusual offerings. There were about 7 choices from Texas, but Iíd hoped for more local/regional picks. The bartender was efficient if a bit stand-off-ish. Biggest turnoff here was the smoking, which never helps the flavor of your beer.
Excellent place with three different areas to sit. a semi-outdoor (in the summer) front area. A cool main seating area in the middle... and the Pub of Love, a smokeylounge area in the back with beat up old couches to slouch on. Pretty much the greatest selection of beers in the Metroplex. Food menu is VERY limited though and what you can get is average at best. Otherwise GREAT PLACE!
Nice bar located a block off of the Tollway. The selection and food is your basic Flying Saucer fare. If you like other Flying Saucers, you will like this one. The bar features a lot of local entertainment and can get pretty crowded. Nothing special, but a nice bar.
