Visited the afternoon of January 21. This is the sixth Flying Saucer I've been to and they're consistently great. This one has the added attraction of a fantastic lake view from an outdoor deck. Typical Saucer selection of probably 50 taps, including many local and Texas selections. Service was very friendly, attentive, and well informed. I still don't get why Flying Saucer insists on sticking with the "quarterly" beer menu. As with every Saucer I've been to I spent several minutes questioning the waitress to determine what was actually available since the menu was so horribly out of date. The food was a notch below what I've had at other Saucers, although I can't say if that's consistently true. I'm looking forward to spending some evenings on the lake when the weather gets warmer.

The Flying Saucer on the Lake has a huge selection of beers, both on tap and in bottles. The waitstaff is friendly, accommodating and knowledgable about the beers that they serve. It's seat-yourself anywhere you like... there's bar seating, long tables for big groups (or just meeting new friends) and smaller tables for couples and families.

On the rare occasion that the weather is nice (or if you're just nuts and enjoy the heat), head out to the patio seating for a nice view of the lake.

Go on Wednesday nights for Brewery Night. Buy the beer, keep the glass it's served in!

Great place. Atmosphere is one of the best in the area if you are out by rockwall/garland. Big patio overlooking the lake to sip on some quality brews. Great beer selection with about 50-75+ rotating taps and even more bottles. All in all they have to have at least 200+ beers avaialable. Ask the bartender whats new on tap because it isn't always on the menu or the chalkboard. Food is good but lacking in variety. Service can be slow when it is slammed but usually it is reasonable. Very Knowledgable bartenders and waitresses. Overall this is a great place and my favorite Flying Saucer in DFW, definately stop by if you are out that direction.
