Good Beer, good meals, outside seating- dog friendly

Good Beer, good meals, outside seating- dog friendly! What more can be said. Just off of I-10, a great place to stop and Half Price Books is just next door.

Over 100 beer choices with many locally brewed favorites. This is one popular place, with great outdoor sitting. The German food is excellent. Great place to unwind, or just visit with friends. Additional parking is right past the restaurant in the movie theater lot.

I have been here three times, in groups and alone. The servers (female) are friendly though not necessarily fast. The written menu of beers has about 30 and the servers are knowledgeable about these. The food is pub-style; I had no full meals. While there have been good crowds it has never felt crowded and there is outdoor seating. There... More

Stopping by for lunch with a friend, I ordered their shepherd's pie. It tasted good but proved entirely too greasy. I was a bit afraid I'd have to run home afterward, so I ate it slowly, but I had no problems. The service was average but the decor was really interesting. I stopped by a few weeks before, though, for... More

What a great pub! My buddy works close by and took us here & we weren't disappointed. Amazing beer selection (200+) and seriously great bar food. Try the cheese fries. A fabulous time was had by one and all here!

Amazing beer selection. You come for the huge draught beer selection but the food is great as well. German food or burgers but the salads are solid as well. Did I mention over 100 different beers!

We just had drinks here and the place was very cool. Serious beer establishment with a great energy. Casual and comfortable with an efficient wait staff.

If you're a connoisseur of fine food, this place probably won't titillate your taste buds, but if you have a penchant for porters, this place will definitely float your boat. If you're local, join the UFO club and get a plate on the wall, it will force you outside your comfort zone and you'll try all types of outrageous beers.... More

My husband is just starting to learn about craft beers and we were told about this place from a server at another restaurant- so naturally we had to check it out. Way cool! I'm not a beer drinker, the server was super helpful bringing me drinks to test out, hummingbird h2o... DELISH!! Food is bar food, but very tasty! Our... More

The food here is amazing, and the number of different beers that they have on tap is mind blowing. They have everything from ciders to dark stout beer, local, domestic, and foreign beers. The flying Saucer also has a beeknurd club with a UFo membership. The membership is $18, but you get a beerknurd T-shirt and several other benefits:After 50... More
