By far the best quality this place has is the selection of the beers. It's very good if you can have over 100 beers to choose from, so you can always pick something new each time you visit.
The atmosphere here generally are good, and it can be somewhat lively when the college crowd descend on the restaurant. However, if you come here often enough, you can guess when will be the "slow" night if you wanted some quiet and few beers.
The drawback, for me, is the menu. While I can't say I have tried every item on the menu, I can certainly say that there seems to be some inconsistency in the quality of the food. For example, the wings aren't very good at all, and it's overpriced. Some of the hot sandwiches aren't so bad, and some of the appetizers are good too.
I am a strong believer that every pub should strive to have absolutely amazing food to go along with some of the best beers they have to offer. Flying Saucer doesn't quite do this, but why am I not surprised? I usually only come here for the beer.
