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?!)

The View Makes It

This is a great little pub right on the water. You sort of have to know it's there though, so make your plans. It's part of the restaurant row next to Bass Pro on Lake Ray Hubbard. Decor looks like an old industrial site, but inside it is so clean that it gleams. We walked right through the bar... read more

Had dinner with a business associate here and we had a good time. It seems like they have hundreds of beers from around the world to choose from. Service is excellent and the food was surprisingly good. For a Monday night it was packed but this is a happening place. Try some of the more exotic beers for a treat... More

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.

I'm here at least twice a month and every time I'm here I never am disappointed by the selection of brews they have lots of local brews and even some international brews that have really expanded my pallet.

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
