Just arrived in town nearby with a recommendation for a late meal. I had the shepherd's pie and an IPA. The pie came in skillet, was a good portion and had the right mix of ingredients. Really hit the spot. You can join a club and be awarded a saucer on the wall when you've reached 200 beers. There were... More

First visit to Houston and difficult to see me rushing back apart from the Flying Saucer. More beer than you can shake a stick at and the staff and customers all very friendly. What's more they even have darts!

If you're on the trail of draft beer in Texas, this is a good place to start...featuring lots of micro-brews from around the country and the world, good sampling of Texas micro-brews, along with the usual 'big brand' selection. Not sure what you want or want to try something that sounds like '?', just ask your waitress/Beer Godess. The Saucer... More

If you are a craft beer aficionado, don't miss this place. About 50 beers on tap and many more in bottles. The food is pretty good too. We had the brats and several beers. Was able to get a bottle of 2 yr out of production Bishops Barrel 4 and was in heaven. Definitely will visit again when we are... More

The flying saucer has an unassuning vibe that is perfect for dinner and drinks with friends. With multiple beers on tap and a decent selection of food, there is something for everyone. They are prepared to make alterations to the food/drink as per your request.

Well firstly it has nothing to do with space ships or aliens... just saucers/plates.... This place is right in Sugarland and was very busy! so they also have 212 kinds of beeer on site, looked like about 60 draft taps on the wall! ...and if you can drink all 212 you get your own

Our first trip to Houston - only there for a day - and out of all the restaurants we chose this one for dinner. Not a single regret. A fun atmosphere, great staff and the food (we had pizza) was amazing. Not to mention the beer selection which was huge! :)
