Honestly I had never been and I thought that the flying saucer would be UFO themed or something after hearing the name! So was pleasantly surprised to walk in and see the old pub style decorum. I really liked the layout and thought it was pretty cool that they had darts and wall of taps was nice to see too.

Grabbed a booth and looked at the beer menu, three pages of beer, bottles and draught. The selection was outrageous in the best way possible. I ended up with a live oak hefeweizen to start(it had been something I've wanted to try for a long time so it was neat to see it on tap) and followed that with a 90 minute, needless to say I was happy.

Service was good, wish our waitress was a little more knowledgeable but hey I'm just getting picky. Got my beers quickly and she only came by when a glass was empty of my plate was clean. Had a very good burger so the food gets high marks too.

Im definitely going back!

I used to work in Columbia, SC and our group often went to the Flying Saucer for diner on Wednesday, which is beer night. I now travel to Austin for business and thought I would try the Flying Saucer. Great beer selection and good service. Not quite the fun college crowd that frequents the Flying Saucer in Columbia, SC, but still fun. Highly recommend visiting for a beer.
