This a bar for beer lovers! They have a great selection and the wait staff seemed knowledgeable. Noisy, crowded, fun. Good bar food.

Conveniently located in the Vista area. Spacious and attractive interior. Pleasant outdoor seating with entertainment at night. Really good wait staff. Great beer selection. The Saucer part of the name comes from all the plates decorating the walls. Very interesting and unique.
