The giant pretzel is ridiculously good, the beer is ridiculously good and even beers that sell out in hours at Saucer seem to stick around quite awhile. Sometimes that's enough but I absolutely hate walking into this place. It's dark as hell and the staff is slow and don't seem to care much about, well, anything really. Going up to the bar to order has been the best method for me to get decent service. I've been there mostly late evening 11PM+ and there's always a ton of well dressed twenty somethings trying to out hipster each other in dresses that look like they were made from their grandmothers curtains or the tightest vintage Fred Perry shirt they could skinny into. Even the name just screams pretentiousness. Really? Mongoose vs. Cobra? I'm sure they have fantastic owners and I'm sure this atmosphere appeals to many. To be fair every bar along main street downtown has the same atmosphere and clientele. I'm just a sloppy, cynical, metal shirt wearing dude who loves beer and prefers a dive I suppose.
