This is the typical Flying Saucer. There is an area out front with couches and tables. A long bar with the typical penny lined Saucer tap wall. Lots of plates line the walls as well. In the back, stairs work its way to a second floor, but it was not open when I visited. There is even a special section for the UFO Club members. Really smoky with lots of TV's and crowds. All fine and dandy, but pretty much resembles the other Saucer bars around the country.

Food is typical for the chain. I think it is the exact same menu as the Houston location. The service was hit and miss. The servers and bartenders did not really know the selection all that well (beyond the special for the day). Other than that, nothing bad.

On to the beer. Highlights for me on tap was Life and Limb, Lips Of Faith Fall Wild Ale (though the bartenders did not know what this was), and Diamond Bear Pale Ale. Plenty of taps that is typical for all the locations, though I think this one might not be as extensive as the Houston location. Plenty of bottles, on par with the chain as well.

Overall, this is just typical for the chain. Nothing special, but worth a visit if in Little Rock.

This is my home-town bar, easily the best in Little Rock, and I'm grateful to have it.

There are some really good waitresses, and obviously some girls are better than others, but some just don't give a shit and clearly don't want to be there. Typical, I suppose.

Atmosphere is pleasant, relaxed, classic pub style with lots of dark stain wood trim. There's a large upstrairs as well as an extensive 'basement.'

Food is actually pretty good. I've had everything on the menu. Mostly sandwiches, decent salads, solid appetizers, etc.

They're good about rotating seasonals, and the draft line is extensive. The bottles are always ridiculously over-priced... I'd much rather just buy the same bottle at 50% less and drink at home.

Firkins, aged beers, and other rare beer events. Trivia nights. Brewery nights where you get the free glass with the select beer. Commemorative plates hang on the ceiling/walls to mark beer counts, starting at 200. (plus they throw you a party worth several hundred in free beer).

Visited on a business trip. Sat at the bar. Did not order food.

Vibe – Great atmosphere. Lots of beer drinkers. Open, well lit, a bit noisy. I don’t necessarily appreciate the drink 200 beers and get recognition, but it’s a business model that seems to work for some. 4.25

Quality – All beer looks to be kept cold. Correct and clean glasses. 4.25

Service – Relatively poor for such a wide and varied selection of beer. All but one of the bartenders seemed to display an unfortunate lack of knowledge regarding the beers they had on tap. Every beer I asked about seemed to stump them. Generally attentive not especially friendly. 3.25

Selection – Great selection. Probably the best tap selection in Little Rock. Most of the beers could still be considered run of the mill and easy to obtain but they had a few of tap that were rarer. Certainly a number that I had never had. 4.25

Price – Thought the prices were good. $$
