Not too much to say about this place, other than it is pretty much like all the other Flying Saucer locations I have been to. That is not a bad thing, since they have 80+ beers on tap plus a ton in bottles. Food is decent, but this place is all about the beer. This is located within five minutes of Black Star and Draught House, and only a little further from North by Northwest.

I had a very good experience here. I have several of their flights of beer, which offered an excellent selection.

This is the 2nd Flying Saucer Iíve visited, and not surprisingly, it is pretty similar to the other one. They had a decent selection of local/area type of beers, much better then the Little Rock one in that regard, but that is more due to the lack of beer in Arkansas then any issue with this restaurant. It seemed like they had a decent set-up, it was fairly crowded but manageable. The staff seemed to be beer clue-less, but I went in expecting that.

I canít believe Iíve been to 5 FSís! Ugh. That said, this one is pretty good. The location is far enough from downtown to attract a mostly yuppy crowd. The outdoor seating here is tits, perfect to enjoy a lazy weekday evening in "the triangle". I always give them a "10/15" on selection because I have to remember to think of 3 beers I want for them to have 1 in stock. Service OK.

This place is a garbage hole. OK, I didnít mean that. But it is definitely not a great place to get a beer if that is your primary intention. Itís beauty lies in its centrality and solid beer selection, so itís a great place to meet friends if you know what you are looking for. My problem with this place is the knowledge of the staff. I figure, if you work in a beer bar you should know something about beer. You donít need to be a cicerone, but you should know the difference between and ale and a lager, or perhaps something about the role of hops in beer. Iím certain that the bartenders must know a little more, but in the handful of times Iíve been in here Iíve walked out knowing less about beer after speaking with the waitresses.

I like this place, the bartender on duty was a really nice guy, he gave me a few samples without me even asking and we talked beer in between serving and offering suggestions to other customers .. typical saucer food, good of course .. the beer tasted great and i had a nice few hours.. up to the standard of the saucer!

Great selection and friendly staff. Single beers or flights can be ordered. Excellent place to visit with friends and look at some beautiful UT chicks.

The Saucerís a very fun place to drink. Theyíve got pretty much everything available in town and almost always get the new beers right when they show up. Casks show up occasionally, which is nice, and every now and then theyíll Randall a beer. If youíre there, ask for Sam, one of the managers - heís a stand-up guy and knows his beer. Itís hard to choose between this and the Draughthouse for a favorite Austin beer joint.

Great selection, but it can get quite busy at different times depending on the day. Thats not really a complaint though. Food is great, and the place is clean. Couches are a plus, even though there might be a few too many. The patio is the place for me, plenty of room (unless its friday happy hour). The UFO club is fun to help keep track of what I have tried, and help me keep on top of what is new. Check it out.
