Amazing beer selection and to die for pretzels

perfect hang out spot for a cold craft beer and some munchies. The soft pretzels are amazing. Don't completely understand why they make the waitresses wear sleazy outfits, but everything else there is pretty cool. Great patio outside.

Over 200 beers on tap, there's always something new to try. Not to mention a great downtown location and a ymy food menu!

Big place in the heart of downtown with a huge tap (80+) and bottle (200+) beer list. Long bar with wood tables and benches both inside and out. Walls and ceiling covered with a plethora of decorative saucers. Surprisingly good food. Prices for food and beer were very reasonable. Place seems popular with the college crowd, but even as an...

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 dishes are all on the menu. The service is... 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.
