Paper menu, no chalkboard. Good selection and organized properly. Go to drink on the lake.

Awesome beer selection! Food is okay, the bratzel is my favorite. Too bad they did away with the free popcorn, it was great for munching on.

Flying Saucer is about as great as a chain experience can be, imho. This one doesn't disappoint. It's not as funky in terms of decor as say the Nashville location but I sort of dig the more modern, darker bar vibe.

The selection is absolutely solid. Service is hard to rate but was above average and speedy enough considering the crowd level.

Food is more or less typical bar food. Still I put Flying Saucer up there for a solid place to stop if you're visiting somewhere new and looking for a good beer (as I was).

Visited May 2015:

Stopped by this place twice while in that part of Dallas. Overall, I got to say that this place was pretty average all the way around, except for the beer selection. They has a number of beer that were local and from the state. That was really the only area of note. The service was very underwhelming. The second night that I went, it must have taken 20 minutes to get a beer...and the place was no where near packed. The first night, I sat at the bar...again, not that packed and I had trouble getting the guys attention to get another beer. Don't get me wrong, I am all about being not being bothered by the staff, but that was over the top. Food - average for what it was. The beers that were served had no head on them. I did note that they did have a cask, yet nothing on tap while I was there and some other special offerings. Something to think about though...sometimes more is not better...it is just more. Probably would not return.
