I seem to always hit up the local Saucer, where ever that might be. It is not my favorite franchise, or beer spot by any means. It is just usually solid. This location might be one of the lesser ones out there.

A small, awkward, and crowded bar. Along with a large dinning/sitting area. The typical penny lined tap wall and metal bar. The service seems clueless, which would be one thing. Though they also don't seem to care. At least when people are trying to get beers at the bar. Maybe I can't blame them when most everyone sitting at the bar is texting on their phones? Anyway, it takes forever to get noticed here.

I felt the beer selection was very substandard for the franchise. Certainly some good beer on the wall, but overall it just left me flat. There are probably 10 beers I have never had on the wall at downtown Houston. Here, they had 4 new beers total. Scrimshaw, Rodeo Clown, Karbachtoberfest, and some Euro lager. While the first three are great, just something I would expect them to have all the time (granted Karbach is relatively new here). The selection seemed more geared toward Euro beers, which is a mixed bag. I was really put off when they did not have anything from Live Oak, and no 512 Pecan Porter. No excuse to not have those.

Food is the same generic stuff at every other location. Basically the exact same menu.

Maybe as bad as the Little Rock location. Which is not good. I was not impressed here.

Not so much a major craft brew place. More of a sports bar and place to go to be seen/hook up. A trendy place - not for craft enthusiasts. The pub food is pretty decent and reasonably priced. They have some happy hour specials from time to time, usually on beer that isn't that good. Go for lunch and avoid the douche factor that exists on a busy night. Right next door to the movie theater so it is nice to grab some grub and a couple of cold ones before you go check out a flick.

Great bar with a great drinking atmosphere. Most impressively is the waitress knowledge of beer. I have been twice in the last week and Lauren has listen to my likes and provided me some great beer I would have not known about. Not to Kenton the girls are a plus!!! Definitely like the place and will continue to visit throughout the years!
