I had the Shepards Pie here and it was not what was described on the menu. Good service...but the food and the wine I had was just not good.

This is a beer lover's dream...endless menu of beers on tap from around the US and the world. Doing the 5 oz taster menu allows you to try a lot of different beers at one go. Nice bar atmosphere which can be a bit noisy, but worth it for sampling the variety of beers. The appetizers we had were ample... More

A great beers selection! And the food also was very tasty! We enjoyed the dinner with friends and the music there!

Amazing selection of beers, virtually no wine selections. Menu is limited, and anything they serve is typical of a suds house. Very loud venue, so much so that normal conversation at you table is difficult.

Didn't realize there had been a soccer game earlier so the place was packed but didn't take long to get a table. Staff were friendly and service was pleasantly quick for how many customers were there. Definitely worth checking out, just for the atmosphere if not for the rotating gamut of beers. A new light rail system right outside was... More

If you find yourself parched and in need of some quality beverage, this place is my first choice. With so many choices of beer there is at least one for everyone's taste. The french dip was one of the best I've had.

Been to several other Flying Saucers and they never disappoint. If you're looking for an outstanding beer selection and decent pub food, this is the place. Watched the US's first World Cup game here in June and it was fantastic!

Came here on a Friday night, and though it was crowded we were able to get a table right away. There is lots of seating, including some tables outside. The food was great- from pizza to hummus to pretzels with cheese. Good beer selection, and the Saucerita was great!

A very unique bar; no night downtown would be complete without going in for an 8% IPA and some wings! Plenty of bar staff who are friendly and quick to serve. Great for a game of darts with friends or a casual night out in a relaxed atmosphere.

I've visited several times for happy hour, etc, but on this visit it was for dinner and drinks with my family. Seating is first come first serve which is okay, but makes it difficult if you actually plan to eat there. Our waitress was not very friendly or helpful, and was quite rude initially as we were told it wasn't... More
