The saucer is a tradition in Ft. Worth. I've been to several and this one has its pluses & minuses, although more of the former than the latter. Great selection, as defined by the confines of the Texas legally-mandated distributor monopoly system. Probably 60 on tap & another 80 bottled, they do a good job of keeping up with the selections available here. A great spot to try Rahr beers, a local Ft. Worth micro with consitently well-executed choices. Food is definitely above average, I recommend the chicken caesar wrap and the kick-ass chicken sandwich. Prices are reasonable, with the exception being the fire sale, which is a bargain at $2.50. One beer per day on fire sale but all Texas pints on fire sale on Sundays & most all drafts (read "no Belgians" here) on fire sale each Monday. Great big overstuffed chairs, not too smoky and reasonably attentive service. I recommend hitting it during the afternoons or early evenings when its less crowded & a bit quieter & more relaxed. A mixed crowd of tourists, beer nerds, and classical concert goers (courtesy of the hall across the street) but they seem to work & play well with others. The outdoor seating is nice, weather permitting, with the upper balcony providing great views of the city. I recommend this place for those with kids (again, afternoons/early evenings) as a good place to relax & enjoy a few pints.

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!
