Great looking draft house - dark woods on the inside and a huge patio overlooking the lake on the outside. Service was only decent (although it was very busy). Best beer selection I have ever seen - hundreds of beers available, and thanks to beer flights you can try many! Solid bar food and vegetarian options noted. Beers were rather expensive, but there are many specials available.
Really do enjoy going here. Even on pint night and trivia night, it doesn’t seem to overcrowded. What really draws me in here is obviously the beer selection. They have the largest, and usually best beers on draft (and in bottles) in town. However, bottle prices are pricey as well as some drafts. This is to be expected, but still, I’ve seen better prices elsewhere. Other than that, this is my go-to location for my beer fix. The patio and large bar are a plus.
Cool place on the lake. Everyone seems friendly. Always have decent beer specials.

I am normally a big fan of Flying Saucer, but the service at this location keeps holding me back. They have the typical endless selection of draft beers, but their waitstaff is typically terribly unaware of the current menu. Add that to unattentive service, and I typically avoid this place. After going for 3 straight days shortly after it opened and getting terrible service (waiting 30+ minutes for refills, etc.) on each day, I only go back once a quarter or so, and the service level has not changed. I would avoid this place unless you feel like constantly flagging down waitresses for another $5 beer.
Re-Rate: 12/20/2010: Service has improved a good bit in the last 6 months or so, as apparently someone got the memo. Best beer patio in Big D!
My wife and I usually go on a weekend night to enjoy the lake and a beer. For the most part the service is pretty good, beer selection is very good, and the ambiance is pretty good as well. Nice spot during the spring when it’s not too hot out yet. It’s pretty cool to be there when people are having their plate parties too.
Great place-love how its right on the shore of a very scenic lake. easy to get to and some great beers. very big place-can sit alot of people. have daily specials and seem to rotate through their taps pretty quickly. If the beer is in TX, it will be at this bar. I definatley enjoyed this place.
Not bad, not bad at all. Stopped by on Christmas night. A nice little stop with a fair amount of folks included. The bartender seemed to know his stuff, even though I educated him on a bit of info. This place seemed like a mix between the Flying Saucer and Joe’s Crab Shack. Odd, yet comfortable. Do as you will.
Bad news: Not the most competent or motivated of the Flying Saucer employees. First food experience says it isn’t very exciting.
Good news: It is far enough away that the rare taps don’t get hit as hard. St Arnolds Divine Reserve #9 was on tap without fanfare as was Avery Dugana and many others that would certainly be gone in Addison.
Outdoor patio view of the lake is quite spectacular and worth the trip itself.
Great location right on the lake and next to Bass Pro Shops. When the weather is nice, have a pint on the outside covered patio overlooking Lake Ray Hubbard. The selection is about like the other Flying Saucers, but the limited beers seem to stay on tap a little bit longer at this location. Decent food, but nothing to write home about. If you like other Flying Saucer locations, you will like this one.
