This place is huge, and always seemed to be comfortably crowded, since it’s right on the main strip. Service was good no matter how crowded it got, although it never really got packed or anything. The beer list is easily the largest in town, and the bottle list was very large as well, highlights being a couple of Prairie things. Food was OK pub food, nothing special. Worth a stop.
I’ve been to other saucers and they all had high ceilings. lots of dark wood, wait staff dressed like teenage hookers, and tons of plates glued to the ceiling but this one seemed to have more character and presence for some reason. They have a big tap and bottle list, nothing to rare of course and I wish they did half pints, but it’s still a chance for beer education. For Little Rock, as for most of the southern towns these places inhabit, the Saucer is going to be amongst the top options in town for craft beer.
Visited a few times over the last weekend. Pretty cookie cutter bar ambiance. Attracts a pretty bro-heavy crowd, but people were friendly enough. It seems like management enforces a strict dress code with their female staff, as all of them seemed to be wearing bras that were uncomfortably small. Ladies, it’s not sexy, it just looks awkward. Big draft list, loads of it’s dead weight, but there were a few cool things to try like KBS and some decent locals. Prices are OK. Overall, not a game changer, but worth a look if you’re visiting town.

This place was alright, more of a detination for quantity then quality. I’ll be back here because the selection is much better then most of what else is around, but I wasn’t particularly impressed. Our service was mediocre, just like the rest of the place. Eh...
Had a quick additional note, an earlier review was quoting prices that were really high, I believe this review was rather confused, and was quoting 750 ml bottle prices as draft pint prices (A pretty big mistake if you ask me, to quote this previous reviewer). I didn’t love the place, but those comments made it seem like the place was trying to rip off all their patrons, and that’s just not right.
Great selection of beer for the area. Went in on the middle of the day on Saturday. Not very crowed, large bar and space in general. DId not try the food. Good service. I had a New Belgium Grand Cru, served in proper glassware (I think they might have a deal with NB, as they have most everything including La Folie). I also had a Goose Island Honkers. Not bad price wise.
Stopped here for dinner and a few beers midweek. Large space, like all other saucers, has a very chain feel. Tap list was large and pretty decent. You would have a hard time not being able to get some new ticks. Food menu was slightly smaller than I remember from other saucers but had enough of a menu that I think most would find something. Service was okay, albeit, slightly slow on the drinks but the kitchen was super fast. Overall an okay joint.
Cool atmosphere in an old building on President Clinton Avenue. Had a decent list of rotating taps (including some states that were new to me) and a solid bottle selection, including Pirate Bomb! Service was friendly but then later quite inexplicably slow/non-existent. Over all a must visit place in a cool neighbourhood in Little Rock.
Decent location. Fun environment. Good beers. I was a big fan of the fact that they had 7 New Belgium beers on tap - including Lips of Faith Dunkle! They also had bottles of La Folie available. The beer coasters above the bar were a cool touch. Exactly what I’ve come to expect from Flying Saucer.
