Lots of beers and little skirts.

As a feminist one may not wish to dine at the Flying Saucer. Of course, it's no Hooters, but the exclusively female waitstaff in exceptionally little attire is a bit offensive. Nonetheless, if you want the best selection of beer in town it's here. The food isn't bad, either, and they will... read more

The beer selection is expansive at Flying Saucer. While some may consider this daunting, the excellent and amazingly knowledgable staff (s/o to Katie) will help you pick out something your always happy with. The food isn't outstanding by any means, but it's pretty good for an establishment primarily focused on the drink. Go to choices are always the Rocket Tots... More

This is a large restaurant where we stopped twice. The beer selection is incredible. It has internet and is right on the corner of the entrance to the main Blues Street. We just had some poppers there with our two beers the first time while we searched for places to go in Memphis- and there wasn't a second of "move... More

I was very impresssd with the beer selection. Service was good and the food was very good bar food. My wife is from Germany and had the German Plate. She liked the 2 different Brats, Bavarian potato salad and the sour kraut was not bad either!

They have a lot of beer on tap with plenty of area stuff to choose from. The food is good and they have a few unique items like the bratwurst sandwich that are really good. But its all about the beer, and the staff is pretty good too.

We always ask where the good brew pubs are and we were immediately directed to this place. It was all the better because it was a Monday and there were great specials going on. There had to be close to 100 beers on tap and the bar tenders were very knowledgeable about the different styles of beer. I asked about... More

The first thing that stood out was the service. Though busy, they don't rush you and are happy to offer samples. As IPA drinkers we found a couple local offerings. The pizza was fantastic. Thin crust and cooked to our liking. They offer some pretty odd things as toppings, so enjoy.

Let's be honest, I was here for the beer. Didn't eat a single thing. Totally worth it, food never crossed my mind!

Situated just a short walk from busy Beale Street, the Flying Sucaer has a real buzz about it...so much atmopshere..and over 100 beers to choose from. An absolute must to visit.

They have 200+ beer flavors with 75 or so on tap! We happened to visit at meal time and ate lunch there. It was good. My reuben was very good, although my husband and I could have easily shared a sandwich. There was variety on the menu but their specialty is the flavors of beer, of course.
