Otherwise known as Saucer on the Lake or Flying Saucer Draft Emporium. Huge selection of beer on large patio by the lake. Typical pub fare (why don't you have pub as a cuisine?!)

Good brews

I like the selection of brews. My friends and I like to sit outside next to the lake. Service is always good and food arrives hot.

We went here for a big party. We were given a private room and a waitress who seemed to be dedicated to us. We had quite a variety of the food and everyone seemed pleased. The beer drinkers loved the craft beers.

Full disclosure: we spend an inordinate amount of time here. It's comfortable and relaxing, there's a great view of the lake, and there's really good beer. And good food. And friendly waitstaff. Want to get fresh air? Go hang on the patio. Want to completely veg out? Go hide in a sofa is the back room. Want to be social?... More

They have an extensive drink list from worldly beers to wine and everything in between. It was great to sit outside on the patio and catch up with friends.

Lots of beers on tap. Some wines and cocktails. The food is nothing to write home about. My salad was plain and was oddly gritty. Grilled chicken was overcooked and dry. Different servers kept coming over to our table to take orders. We repeated our orders several times. Some of our drinks never showed up. We had to ask for... More

Foods are acceptable, Beer choices, by far a HUGE selection. Servers can be hit or miss for being attentive, depending on if their regular crowd or boyfriend is there. There is a six drink MAXIMUM, even if your drinking the weakest beer they offer. So a 3% beer or a 8.5% doesnt matter. Go for the beer selection not for... More

The food is great, the service is average. Especially like the sandwiches and salad. Try the jalapeno vinaigrette dressing, it is excellent.
