Come here regularly for $3 pints on Monday nights. Service is usually fast, and crowd isn't too heavy.

This is a super place to come for a couple of brews. Lots of choices, good tables and energy. My goodness the food is so unbelievably bad and largely overpriced. Tater tots came with about 10-12 little pieces that were so insanely priced you would...More

Great choice in beers and the bar staff know their stuff. Really busy on a Monday night - popular. We didn’t eat but food seemed basic hearty pub food. Would return

Went to the Flying Saucer for dinner while staying at Four Seasons. Great local bar and restaurant. Had the French Dip sandwich. It was great! As was the service and atmosphere. Very reasonably priced

I go to this place all the time. One of the best beer selections ever. Friendly and well-trained staff every time. Great location right in the middle of downtown. Perfect for lunch or a beer before a sporting event or any other event downtown.

Was looking for a place for lunch, saw some good reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. Unfortunately I couldn’t go for beers, which they have a great selection, but the Turkey Meltdown was great! Very good service as well.

The Flying Saucer is known for its nice beer selection, but it also has nice fare for lunch. The choices includes pizza, sandwiches, salads, and more. The location at the corner of Capitol and Main is nice for people watching too, but it can get...More
