Rating it based on the other beer bars in the area, it’s head-and-shoulders the best around. You just won’t find the selection of craft beer anywhere else around Little Rock with over 70 taps and hundreds of bottles that rotate pretty regularly. Most of the staff is beer knowledgable and the food is good. 6 plates on the wall for me and counting.
While smaller than the facilities in Austin and San Antonio, you knew you were in a Flying Saucer. They had a nice selection of local beers which is what I was there for. All in all a very enjoyable experience.
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.
First time at this "saucer". Good location, quick service, pretty friendly. The selection was better than other locations I’ve been to, and as for availability, they seemed to have almost everything in stock for once. I had a great time, and I’ll be back!
I think I am guilty of comparing to some of my favorite brew places in bigger beer markets, but the selection is never quite as good as I would expect. They routinely are missing good brew available locally, but have good selection overall. I just sometimes can’t find something enticing on their largely unaltered menu.
Second time I have been to one of these places (other time in Memphis). This was the first time I have eaten a meal here though. Great beer selection - probably 20-30 on tap, with lots more in bottle. All different styles and from all different places around thw world. The food menu is OK I guess, mostly bar kind of foods. Defintiely worth going here if you are looking for a variety of beers.

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.
