I was just there for pint night. $2.75 pints aren't bad. Regular prices are ok, but the happy hours are pretty good.

Atmosphere is typical English style pub, only with Hooters-lite waitstaff. I'm more interested in their brew knowledge than their outfits and they do alright in that aspect. They know their brews and they have decent recommendations. Additional, my server was attentive but not overly solicitous, big plus!

Quality and selection was typical for a Flying Saucer. Good for each.

I'll go back. But I'll try to hit the happy hour.

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.
