We came here for a late lunch and were not disappointed. The beer selection is amazing, but the service -- meaning the time it took to get our food and drink -- was too lengthy. The food was okay, just okay -- I wouldn't go back for the food. I've since passed the Flying Saucer several times without going back, so that tells me it was okay, not great.

Lots and lots and lots of beers on tap. Every Wednesday, they have glass night where you buy the 'beer of the night' and get the glass for cheap (like $1 or $2). Their food is always fresh and great. Pretzels are especially good.

This place is in the Power and Light district but it's not accessible from the pavillion where the hordes of bars (and crazies) are located. The food is excellent and the beer even better. Try a beer flight, you can even make your own. It's a great way to try some beers on draught that aren't readily available anywhere else. The best news? None of those crappy domestics you find in other bars! My husband and I visited while on a trip and are very sad not to have this place closer to home. We will definitely come back!

Really great beer here, tons of beer on tap and you can even put together five different kinds to try a bit of each! Every time I come home for a visit I love to come to Flying Saucer for a few drinks and good food. They have really big soft pretzels that are amazing and go perfect with a cold beer. The waitstaff are always very friendly and the bartenders always remember who I am and are really fast and efficient. Great place, definitely worth going to!

Neat bar, great atmosphere, pretty good food, horrendous policy of six drink max. If your going to feature so many why restrict your patrons to so few? Other than that a must stop for beer enthusiasts.
