The Saucer in Raleigh is located smack dab between the two enterntainment districts in downtown. A short walk from either one and the area around it is growing.

Long bar area with many tables, couch seating up front, and picnic tables outside across from the bar. Don't forget to check out the back room, around the corner of the far end of the bar. If the place appears packed, there's usually room back there.

Service can vary wildly. Most of the table staff are not beer educated (though there are some notable exceptions). Most of the bar staff are well versed in what they sell, though there are notable exceptions there too (as I experienced on my most recent visit).

They are doing a much better job in the last few years of stocking local beers. They weren't doing a bad job before, but seem to be very interested now in promoting the local beer scene. If you want to try a variety of NC beers, then this is a good spot to hit.

Prices are ok, with some higher or lower depending on the beverage. Works out to about average.

Food is ... well, this is the Saucer. Eat before you get here.

Just about my favorite place in Raleigh. Occasionally the service can be slow (still very friendly but it gets very busy or the waitresses can sometimes be... herbally infused...). I stop by just about every time I go to Raleigh. The food menu has just recently been changed, I wish they would have expanded it more and left the original menu for the Hungry Farmer. Sit outside on the patio and enjoy a cigar. The most dog-friendly place I've seen in Raleigh so far.

80 beers on tap is quite a thing to behold. I was enthused to see the nightly specials were local beers, and our bartender was prompt and attentive. Shared a light platter of meats/cheeses so I don't have much input on the food, although it looked tasty on the menu. I showed up on a weekday, and could imagine it getting quite packed on the weekends. There was also a nice patio for folks to sit or stand. Found the place by chance after pulling off the interstate, would bring a friend back, seems like a successful venture!
