The only thing holding this place back is the lack of selection available in the state of Arkansas. Stone, Dogfish, Oskars, Brooklyn... none of these biggies are interested in coming here. The saucer has extremely knowlegable wait staff who also happen to be very attractive. They have a wall full of taps, and three cooler doors filled with good beer. They have specials that make it a value every night, especially Mondays. Lots of fun specials throughout the week, like Wednesdays you get to keep the glass etc. Great beer place.
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.
Like the other Flying Saucers Iíve been to, albeit not as large as some. Wooden tables. Iíve had good luck with service personally. Food is OK. Almost certainly the best selection in Arkansas.

Just like all the other Saucers. This one has the local beers and a lot of the macro, micro, and imports. However, they always seem to have a one-off New Belgium-this time the Le Fleur Misseur. I never see these at the Texas Saucers. Service at the bar was decent. Another good thing-no smoking inside now. This place used to almost uninhabitable for beer drinkers. Sweet.
I would have to agree with iLilKem/i below - the service was awful. It was like they were mad at us for coming in even though it was an hour and a half until closing. A server never came to us, the bartender had to as well. Maybe they were tired, but customer service is customer service. A large tap selection as well as bottles. It is all divided up by style on the menu which is nice. A lot of the best ones were in bottles which is more expensive. They had a lot of the local brewery Diamond Bear, New Belgium and other Colordao micros like Avery and Breckenridge. About three of the tap selections we asked about were out as well. Besides this, itís a cool environment inside and out (right on President Bill Clinton Ave - I think where the other cross street besides Markham is Lewinsky :) The chips con queso was good.
i would have liked this place if A) we could get someone to wait on us in less than 20 minutes and B) they had a decent tap list that actually showed what they had on tap. so many things were either out or not on draught yet. Had some Rogue, New Belgium (which is readily available just about anywhere here), Abita, and a few other belgians. Probably one of the better selections in Little Rock but Iíd rather hit up the brewpubs where I couldnít get that kind of beer everywhere else in the USA. didnít try the food.
Just like any other Flying Saucer. Great Beer selection, Hot waitresses in mini kilts. Service needed some attention but food was good. Trivia night was great. Over all, I would go back next time I am in LR.
Definately better than the Memphis Saucer. They have a big basement with cushy leather furniature and pool tables. Plus the selection is better. They have a couple of the Fullerís ales and Triple Karmeliet. Try the german potato salad. Delicious!
What a fun place! Cool ambiance, though more tvs than Iíd prefer. Our server wasnít too beer savvy, but when I asked questions she sought out the answers, so that was very awesome. She even printed out a little description of a beer that I was asking about. They did have Maredsous 8 when I was there, so that was a bonus. As well, they had Diamond Bear beers, brewed just down the street. Great chocolate dessert too.
