“Pub anyone?? Yeah!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Looking for a good watering hole, want great beer selection and service with ladies in short skirts... This is your spot.

The food is selections is typical of bar good but there are some highlights the brats pretzel and spicy Mojo wings w/ blue cheese dressing is "da bomb".

Beer selection is great, try something new, they will let sample a taste before you are all in. Definitely go on Monday night "$3 pints" on about everything.

Of course there is specials during week and more. Just check it out, and try something off the beaten path

“Great beer selection,great servers,and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

Very large beer selection, probably the largest selection that I've seen and the servers know a lot about the beer choices, so you can ask them for recommendations. The German food is great including the German potato salad, which is my favorite side. There are always beer specials and there is something for everyone!

“EXCELLENT beer selection and good bar food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

This place is a staple of ours. They have an awesome beer selection, probably the most complete I have seen in the state outside of Asheville. The food is also pretty good. Don't expect some amazing restaurant or anything, it's a PUB! But as far as pub food goes, I think they do a pretty darn good job. Not the biggest selection, but everything is pretty solid. EXCELLENT sandwiches. I can't wait for my milk stout tonight! Hmmmm......

“A long bar with a pub feel...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Kinda hidden off Rt 29 across from UNC Charlotte. Skads of beers to choose from. Go for the draft pints. The servers know their beers, so ask them for a description and get some samples if you are unsure of what kind of beer you want. Food is good for pub fare. This Saucer has a feel that makes it a unique experience.

From delicious dark stouts, refreshing fruit brew, and crisp caramel ales, this fun, unique pub is a little gem in down town!
