Pretty nice atmosphere. Not too smoky, and it was all rather laid back. They had an outdoor section, which looked nice, but it was a bit warm that day. Taps seemed to be a bit too cold. Service was decent, although it took a longer period of time for me to be served than I've experienced in larger and busier bars. Selection was decent, but I'm mostly butt-hurt over the fact that there were no beers from Real Ale or Live Oak, yet I know for a fact that the Addison location has, at least, Live Oak offerings.
Overall, this wasn't a bad Flying Saucer, and I would surely go again. My only huge gripe is the layout of the bathroom. The sink is located about half a foot form an open urinal with no divider. To take my wet hands from the sink to the soap dispenser, I had to get my hands even closer to the guy who was pissing right next to me. I had to handle the situation very carefully as to not splash his crotch with sink water. I don't like being that close to another dude's piece.

First time in Ft. Worth, so I made it into the top rated beer bar in Ft. Worth.
Atmosphere - It's a pretty large place with a good amount of booths, adequate seating at the bar, and some additional tables both in the back and in a side room. It's a clean, comfortable place to eat and drink.
Quality - They serve both quality beer and quality food.
Service - Both nights I stopped in I sat in different places. The bartender was conversational and helpful about the menu. The waitress was also the same way, so I didn't prefer either location as it was a positive experience in both.
Selection - They have a good 25-30 or so drafts nicely sectioned into beer style, and they have a pretty good bottle selection as well. It'd be pretty hard for you not to find something you'd like, plus they had just finished a barleywine tap takeover, so they had a great selection of that style when I was here.
Food - I ate the 2nd night I was here, and I greatly enjoyed the food. They offered up a very good variety of mostly standard bar food, and numerous dishes had a fairly unique twist on it. I would definitely eat here again.
Value - Good value.
Overall this was a great experience. I had good beers, good food, and was impressed with the service. Recommended!

Great service and good food. I liked the fact that they had a build your own flight sampler, that's always good in my books. Unfortunately, they did not have very many local beers on tap and for the sampler, the beers had to be on draft. The beer menu seemed kind of cheap and didn't really provide a good definition of the beers, so you really need your beers when you go in here. They were out of some of the beers that I ordered, so I had to choose others. It was a good place to visit, but not a place that I would go to all the time.
