I have never seen so many beer taps in my life. I tried a few different beers and loved them all. There are beer menus on the tables which tell you the style of beer, the alcohol percentage and price which is very helpful when deciding. We also ordered food one night and the German style snacks were almost as... More

Incredible beer selection, great staff, and be sure to get the Bar Pretzel with dipping sauces. One of few places actually downtown that can hold a decent crowed all night.

We have a saucer near us in Dallas, and love it. We went here for a late dinner after the Astros game. Good food, great beer selection, decent service and a very fun vibe. Definitely would go back.

Bartenders are super friendly and the beer and food are great.... More

Came here with friends for a couple of evenings out. The food and drink is good. There was a great atmosphere and the staff knew all the beers. Would go back there next time

If you are looking for the usual American brewed beer this is not the place. Beer from around the world including some local micro brews. Great staff. Build your 200 beers and get awarded your plate. I've had a few meals and the pizza, hot wings, sandwiches are always great. There is parking a block away for $5.00 or take... More
