If you are looking for a place to hang out with co-workers or friends, this is the place for you! Went this past Friday for a going-away work get-together and we all had a blast. The service was awesome and because of the beer selection, there was something for everyone. We tried the pretzels and they were fluffy and flavorful.... More

If you want beer, look no further than the Flying Saucer. Great selection of beers on tap or in bottles. It has two levels with pool tables and darts. Food available, but I didn't eat. Tons of saucers (Plates) on the walls.

We were staying at the new Marriott hotel down the street and they recommended this place to watch a football game and enjoy some food and drink. They have a huge variety of beers and we tried several. We also had their amazingly delicious big toasted pretzels with several varieties of dips to go with them. The staff was friendly... More

The restaurant had really nice and interesting decor. We visited after seeing the menu in our hotel, Club Quarters, which was nearby. We sat ourselves at a comfortable booth upstairs and away from the chaos of downstairs. It was still very loud, though. It was kind of slow, so we had decent service, but the waitress had no personality. It... More

A veritable oasis in the otherwise dead zone of downtown Houston. Amazing beer selection, decent food, lively atmosphere, friendly and attentive staff were all a surprise when I stumbled upon this place. Additional bar supplies would be a good addition (I asked for a Manhattan - no vermouth). Limited wine selection was good though. Given the dearth of places downtown,... More

We were there on a Wednesday afternoon, the place was packed, so the service was poor. They have a great variety of Draft Beers, and the ambiance is business like with some tourist. Maybe will try it again.

Great food, Awesome beer selection and usually very friendly staff. My wife and I stop in here when ever we are in the area. Widest selection of beer i've found and haven't hand any bad food yet. My wife love the turkey sandwich with jalepeno pesto, I love the Ruben and the french dip.

Good Food, Cool Place ... Chilly Beer! Nice place for after work drinks and good food. Kind of loud and bustling but it adds to the place.
