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....

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.

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.

We live in Tupelo MS and this is by far the best bar within a 100mile drive. After going to the FS downtown Memphis a few times, we got fed up with the bums, traffic and complete fools on Beale so we decided to try this one. I am so glad we did, I don't feel like I should worry about my car being stolen while I'm having a beer, and the crowd there is a lot more laid back too. The beer selection is slightly smaller then the one downtown but it's still pretty impressive. The outside area is nicely heated during wintertime and inside it's a smoke free area, which is not mandatory in Memphis from what I hear. Service has always been great, the place is clean, the music isn't overbearing and did I mention yet the beer selection is great?
