The downtown Memphis location is a younger college crowd while this suburbs location caters more to married couples and law kids (a calmer crowd/atmosphere). Outdoor seating is nice, but finding a parking spot my take an extra minute. Things are pretty standard across all the FS locations in Texas, Tennessee and the Carolinas, but this one only opened in the past year, so it is still working out all the kinks. If you are staying with family/friends out in the suburbs, then it is worth checking out, but if you are downtown or midtown, just check out the one off Beale Street. Proven formula for a successful restaurant, you always know you ahve a guaranteed product at any given Saucer.

I love the Flying Saucer and I have been to several of them around the country. This is by far the smallest Flying Saucer I have visited. The atmosphere is nice and there is a corner that has some very comfortable couches you can hang out on while having a beer, very nice. The selection of beer is good but when compared to other Saucers it too is somewhat small. I really wish this Saucer could have as good a selection of beer as the Saucer in Nashville, TN (just 3 hours down the road). The food was quite good. I had the goat cheese pizza and it was yummy. Also, they had a sale going on for Yazoo's Dos Perros for $2.50. I took advantage of that but the only down side was that they kept serving it with a lime wedge on the glass, even when asked not to. YUCK!!! Come on Saucer, you guys are supposed to be good when it comes to beer! Also, they had Memphis' local beer "Naked Lion Copper Flask" in bottles. All in all, this is the place to go for good beer while in the Cordova/Germantown area and I do recommend it!

On a quick weekend getaway to Memphis the original plan was to go to the downtown Saucer. But after spending the late afternoon/early evening on Beale Street we decided to head for the suburbs and Cordova location. The place is on a modern suburban shopping street. Big indoor open room and outdoor seating with typically good Saucer atmosphere and cute waitresses. From everything I can tell Memphis is not what you would consider a great beer city, but Saucer manages to singlehandedly raise things a notch with a decent selection of regional distribution beers (Yazoo, Ghost River, Southern Magnolia) and national favorites. Crowd was just what you would expect at a Saucer, lively but not obnoxious, friendly but not in your face. Overall an enjoyable evening. Still have to mention my long term complaint with all five Saucers I've been to - dump the seasonal beer menu. Stop wasting the waitress and my time going through a menu that's effective for three months despite the fact that your inventory changes daily....

I recently went to the FS in downtown Memphis. This one out in Cordova is much more convenient – you don’t have to deal with any of the downtown parking or traffic. The atmosphere is very similar to the one off of Beale St., however it’s a much more subdued and laidback crowd. Very relaxed place.

The quality of the place is solid. Lots of good beers on tap, probably about 80 or so, but not quite as many as the downtown location. Great bottle selection to back it up. The service at the bar was excellent. They were very quick to help and offer suggestions. The menu even included food and beer pairing inserts, which seem to be updated fairly regularly. I appreciated that extra bit of attention – shows that they really took stock in their product. The selection was good – a lot of old standards on the menu.

The only thing that was really lacking was the food. They had a very small menu, typical bar food, and sparse at that. At least the beers were good, and the prices were very reasonable.

My first trip to the Saucer here. This is a really good beer bar. Most of what is here can be found in any liquor store from here to Nashville but it is nice to see it in a beer bar. However, everything was way overpriced. $11.00 for a pint of Ruination?? I mean, come on, I can go across the street and get 2 bombers for that. I got a pint of Shiner Bock (yuck!) and a pint of DFH 90 and it set me back $10.00. The Shiner Bock was the special of the day at $2.75. I might go again but more than likely, I will pick up the brew at the store and go home to drink it. Just not worth the money. Service was exceptional though. Very attentive waitresses and they seemed to be very knowledgable as well.
