The service was extremely bad and we found hair in our food. Not in one but two plates. It was cold inside and no fans or cooling devices outside.

This place has lost it's luster due to a decline in server attentiveness. Thier best servers have moved on to bigger, better things.

Stopped here and was floored by the HUGE selection of beer!! They have tons of choices from all around. Food is not bad either- had a pretzel and it was fantastic!! Atmosphere is European influence. Service was good, staff were friendly and courteous. Overall was a great place to stop for cold beer and good food!! Would go back!

We dropped in today (our third visit) for lunch and sat outside on the patio. Dogs are allowed on the patio, so FYI. There are tables with and without umbrellas, but we had no problem getting a table with. The beer options are extensive and the food menu provides lots of options. The service was good and when on that... More

I decided to visit FS after years of not going. It's still the same. Pretty cool spot with a great beer selection and good specials. The service was friendly too. Have never had a bad time here. The hot dogs are great!

Had beers & finger foods after a burial service there with family. Staff was UBER attentive- took great care of the us. Prices were in line, selections of brews was good. Good was good, including having some vegan fare. Will visit it again when I'm in S.A. again.

Great selection of beers. Food is typical pub grub but it is good and service was prompt and friendly. Not a good place for a quiet dinner or date but overall a good place to meet with friends.

We went to the Flying Saucer on Trivia night. It was my first time at a restaurant that had a trivia game night. It was a lot of fun! The restaurant was full but service was still very attentive. Good selection of beer, good food, good service, and fun. I was very happy they had Samuel Smith beer. One of... More

This place was okay!!! The beer selection lacked the local craft beer. They did have some but the majority was out. Bad problem to have I suppose. Poor selection of ciders as well. I did however have a hummingbird and that was quite tasty. I was only able to have one because it was quite sugary. Had the prime rib... More

I used to like this place, but the service and food quality was not even mediocre during my last two visits. The beer choices is all there is here. There's much better food and tastier cold beer options close by!
