Stopped in and had the German Plate and tried some of their specialty beers and it was great inspite of getting their grumpiest waitress. The place was hopping with trivia games and mostly friendly people. Overall a great place with a great selection of beer.

Really fun place to try special craft beer -- they have something for everyone! The wait staff is friendly and very knowledgeable about the huge beer list. Also great that you can taste before you commit to a pint. We shared some appetizers -- especially love the pretzels.

So much on tap it's amazing. Food is mediocre, service isn't great but the prices are decent. Good burgers, fries, etc... Great atmosphere for groups and friends. Not romantic

We were in Columbia for a concert and needed a quick place to eat before the show. We were heading somewhere else but as we walked by, the atmosphere of this place just pulled us in! There is an outside patio with lots of seating but since it was so hot, we decided to eat inside. It was about 6:30pm... More

My wife and I stopped by the Flying Saucer after a day at USC. We were mainly just having a wind down evening and just had beers. And I must say, we hit this one Big Time. We both love Draft Beers and they had so many to choose from. We didn't eat this time, but we did review the... More

This place is amazing - rustic both in and outside. Several varieties of beer and excellent bratwursts/sauerkraut. Waitresses are pleasant and courteous.

Good selection of beer and average tasting bar food. Good place to go and try out some local or global beer brews especially if you like dive bars

This place has an overwhelming selection of beers. They offer flights, which is very helpful. It's huge, noisy, and kind of rowdy sometimes, but great for people watching. They had trivia on one of the nights we went. I've never eaten there, though.
