This bar has an amazing selection for what is on tap. Their menus are categorized by type of beer and, like all Flying Saucers, you get to create an account and build up a list of the different beers you have had. Good for trying out different ones, especially if you donít want to have to pick up full cases at the specialty stores. I started at the top of the list with a Paulaner Oktoberfest and then the next dobblebock.
The food here is decent but isnít exciting. However, letís be realistic, most of us donít hit this place up for the food. Their beer selection is second to none with constant new additions and local brews and their wait staff is knowledgeable and stunning.
I thought this place was great. The selection is amazing, and if you go on the right night, very reasonable. I loved the ambiance. If people are complaining about it being too loud itís because they are too old. A very young and hip crowd, the waitstaff is gorgeous and I always got great service. The food was great as well. I spent four days straight there while on a business trip. I couldnít recommend it more.
Waitress was VERY attentive and served our beer and food promptly, as well as checked back often. She was generally interested in our thoughts on several types of beer, but couldíve been a little more knowledgeable/ Atmosphere was a typical "pub", but nice. Food was fresh and beyond typical bar food. The best part is that the entire bar is non-smoking, except for the patio outside. Itís nice for non-smokers to be able to enjoy a few complex beers without having to deal with the stench of smoke. Will definitely go back again and again.
Someone once referred to this place as the "Hooters of Beer Bars" and I think it lives up to the name based on the eye candy that prances around (my boyfriend much appreciates). However, this should not be a knock on the Saucer, as they do offer great ambiance, a wide selection of beer, and a friendly staff. I was not at all impressed with the food. Iíd prefer a menu like what can be found at a place like the Yardhouse, but it is what it is. Overall a very good experience and the selection can rarely be matched. Probably could use some more frequent cleaning of their beer lines though as Iíve had some beers that had a little extra funk in them before.
A nice place. A little on the loud side, but not too bad. The food tastes pretty good, but the menu is pretty tiny. The service is average but most of the servers are pretty easy on the eyes. they have something like 400 beers, so the selection is pretty decent. Being SA, I couldnít believe that 75% werenít Shiner ;) Iím trying to get in alot of different samples and going to these kinds of places while traveling on business helps. It is what you would expect, a regional chain with pub grub.
The waitresses all wanted me, and I was happy to oblige. The Flying Saucer always has a great selection, and this place is no exception. Very accessible, and plan on staying awhile. Nice tap and bottle selection; the 1/2 Price bookstore next door can be a dangerous place after a pint or 5...
