This was my first stop after arriving in San Antonio. Met friends and family there. Had the sampler. It was really a fun place. Ate chips and salsa on the patio and tried the different beers. They have so many to choose from. Very hip place. If you like microbrews you will love it. If you like Miller Lite then... More

If you are one that enjoys tasting different types of beers from all over the world this is your place. They also have decent pub fare, really can't go wrong.

Went in to greet some friends and we were ignored by waitresses. She didnt ask if we wanted anything. We waited and waited for the waitress, had to get her attention to stop and take our order. Isn't it her job to attend us and not us going after her??? We ordered food and some beer. The food was horrible... More

We stopped at this Saucer for lunch during a road trip. We had our dog with us and were happy to see the "dog friendly patio" sign as we approached. Service was good and the food was as expected. Enjoyed Flying the San Antonio Saucer.

Best variety of draught beer in town, great food for a bar. Understandably it gets incredibly busy...!

You know what to expect when you walk into a Flying Saucer: over 100 draft beers, fair prices and good food. At this Saucer, smoking is allowed in the outside seating area, so we decided to eat inside, a bit noisier, but smoke-free. The manager was very friendly (we had mentioned during a visit at the Columbia,SC Saucer we were... More

The beer selection is just simply wonderful. I have only visted once, but definitely plan to return. The services is not bad either, but it does get very busy.

Having just seen Ironman 3 at the movies, I was ready for a beer. Love all the draft beer choices and a paper to provide details on any I was curious about. Added on a serving of nachos with chicken. Their nacho presentation is a bit different, but who cared while we drank and ate to our delight! TV's around... More

Visiting HERE, was on "my" to-do list.... Imagine a Green Turtle on steriods/mixed with a REWARDS program....and you kinda have an idea of this place. Many of the beers offered...are brewed IN texas...which is kinda cool. they have a W I D E array of flavors, hops, etc...so if YOU simply want a Miller or Coors...this may not be the... More

Texas has to be one of the worst states in the Union for beer. They still have some crazy regulations that restrict breweries from selling their beer on premises. OK, full disclosure, I live in Bend, Oregon, the epicenter of incredible brewpubs, but that doesn't change the fact that Texas is the Siberia of beervana. That is, unless you can... More
