Great Flights of Beer, Lotsa Taps!

There are too many beers to mention. Cant decide on one (or two)? The menu includes flights by type selected by the bartender and you can pick your own flight. Service is great and the food is good, but "punish". Sandwiches, great pretzels (be prepared for SPICY mustard!) salads and unique... read more

Our 3rd time coming here on our visit to Raleigh. Has not disappointed us yet! Over 100 beers to choose from & great food and service. Outdoor area and nice couch area to relax and eat/drink. Music is very loud and my not be a good place for younger kids but would be okay for older kids. Most likely gets... More

Nice bar to stop at. Not too fancy and not a hole in the wall. Very friendly people and the foods not to die for but good bar food.

Obviously they have a great beer selection and always have something new to try. The atmosphere is fun and they have a nice outdoor seating area. The service is great and the food is a step above your typical pub grub.

This place has a huge selection of beers but if you're more of a liquor guy like me, you'll be on your own. Our server wasn't really knowledgable about the beers on tap and made a couple of poor suggestions. They do allow you to sample so you might want to do that if you're not a craft beer enthusiast....

I've been visiting this Saucer for years and was moved to review it when they redid their food menu. The salads and sandwiches have improved. You still can't beat a good basket of cheese fries with the best beer in town. But this place also offers a nice patio with excellent service and some fine food. I recommend the cheese... More

A huge selection of beers on tap, in the bottle, and maybe even in a cask. If you like good beer and tasty food. Head over and enjoy a cold beer and friendly staff.

Ok. I admit it. My family calls me a beer snob and they're right. What can I say, I like beer with flavor and if you can't find something you like here you're not looking. I'm not sure of the exact number but they have more on tap than most bars I have been to carry beers. Combine them with... More

If you want to drink it, they likely have it on tap or in bottles.....WOW!! The pub food is great and the saucer girls provide all the scenery you need. Pubs come and go, but the Saucer is the place for good times and great beer. Nice outdoor patio too!

Where's Guy Fieri? Because this dive is one heck of a place. Flying Saucer has over 200 beers available with an extension and VERY informative drink menu, you have something for everyone's taste. The beers aren't the only things this place has going for it, though. The menu is equally as ambitious, with items ranging from Korean meatballs and a... More
