Large place, patio up front. darts area and a long bar with tons of restaurant tables. Lots and lots of beers on offer, flights of six available. Barman Chris took great care of me. Solid place.

My first Flying Saucer experience was fun. Loud, raucous, packed with 20-somethings. College/frat party vibe but in a good healthy happy way. Decent draught selection can keep you yapping all night. Fun sci-fi murals. They had X-rated trivia for shits and giggles. Servers wear schoolgirl outfits, which is a very cute look. Whatever it is it wasn’t boring.

Lots of beers here. They were out of a couple of my selections, though, which drives me nuts. Service was ok. Very big, bright. Open late, a nice touch. Worth a stop, because there aren’t too many better places in Columbia.

This is probably the nicest Flying Saucer I’ve visited. It’s very spacious and clean while still maintaining the trademark appearance of the chain. The selection is wide and has anything for most beer drinkers. I was disappointed to not see more regional beer available, but that seems to be across the board in SC. I enjoyed some Bear Republic brews. Also, the waitstaff is particularly attractive at this location which utilized the assigned uniforms quite efficiently. If I stop in Columbia again for a beer, it will most likely be here.

Visited here in July ’07. Best selection of beers I have seen a bar in the South. Reminds me a lot of the Ginger Man in Austin. Hundreds on tap and in the bottle - basically anything you can get in the newly "high gravity allowed" state of South Carolina. Young, energetic staff - somewhat beer knowledgeable. Food was decent - only had the nachos. Prices are a tad steep - but they do allow you to have "flights" of 5 - 5 oz beers of your choice from their draught list for $8. Even have a few picked out for you - I had the "Carolinas" flight. Loud atmosphere, everyone seemed to be having a good time. Recommended.

Typical Saucer Emporium with college crowd. Pretty good selection, but nothing new or outstanding and a very disappointing regional representation. Food is slightly below average. Servers are attractive but not knowledgeable of either the food or beer menu, and not real interested in working either. Still probably the best selection in the area.

Doesn’t look like much from the outside but once inside it is very much a Flying Saucer. Lots of good beers on tap. I really wasn’t on a unicorn hunt so I don’t know about those but it took less than three seconds to find a beer that I wanted to try. Some parking onsite but it fills up quickly. Other than that there is paid parking close by.

Slowly making my way to all the Saucers (except they keep opening more so I may never get to them all). Typical Saucer vibe - my bartenders and the manager were passionate and fairly knowledgable.
