I'm not a person that enjoys craft beers so having such a a great selection of German/English/ Belgian beers on tap makes me very happy. The Saucer is an enjoyable place when it isn't so crowded. The food is pretty damn good and I have eaten there plenty of times. Food prices are not my favorite but oh well.

What I don't like about the place is the damn crowd that can pack the place on the weekends.

Not so much a major craft brew place. More of a sports bar and place to go to be seen/hook up. A trendy place - not for craft enthusiasts. The pub food is pretty decent and reasonably priced. They have some happy hour specials from time to time, usually on beer that isn't that good. Go for lunch and avoid the douche factor that exists on a busy night. Right next door to the movie theater so it is nice to grab some grub and a couple of cold ones before you go check out a flick.

Great bar with a great drinking atmosphere. Most impressively is the waitress knowledge of beer. I have been twice in the last week and Lauren has listen to my likes and provided me some great beer I would have not known about. Not to Kenton the girls are a plus!!! Definitely like the place and will continue to visit throughout the years!

I would go weekly and enjoyed myself every time. The selection is better than none. The food is great. The staff is friendly and always have great advise. A few waitresses that knew my preferences and always had a taster waiting for me. And more often than not it was a great choice. Parking can be bad, but if is not impossible to deal with. Of all the Saucers I have been to this is my favorite.
