All the beers

The appetizer was not the greatest, but the beer list made up for it. Tried all sorts of Texas beers since it was 2-3 dollar drafts. Tons of fun and worth a post dinner stop for drinks.

Chain restaurant with gastro pub spin. Pleasant but nothing original. Nothing wrong with it-jut a little bland

Love the coconut cream and apple pie. But if you are not into either, there are at least 6 other selections.

HUGE beer selection (drink enough variety and your name can be on the wall), decent pizza, other good appetizers available. On the rail line in downtown Houston. Upstairs area available for a group. A bit noisy, but you have to expect somewhat. Outdoor seating is also available if you really want it. Bartenders were knowledgeable about suggesting a good beer... More

The Flying Saucer is one of the very few places in downtown Houston that has a lively crowd after work daily. A great happy hour location for a group, even better now that they've added some sound insulation on the ceiling, as it was otherwise very loud for conversing. Literally hundreds of beers, both draft and bottle, pretty good pub... More

Don't expect to find a Budweiser or Miller lite but what you will get is some great beer served by a very knowledgeable staff

Whenever I am Houston for a couple of days I make sure to at least have lunch here. With the selection of beers and the tasty food you can't go wrong. The wait staff is not too shabby as well. If you like any form of beer, you will find something you like here.

So... This has to be one of my favorite pubs in Houston. Nothing like their special German plates. I ordered the German plate and oh disappointment! The German style red potato salad is no longer available! :( I was craving it so much! The waitress let us know it's not available anymore, so right now, the menu is misleading! A... More
