This is a placed we stopped at briefly during a visit to Nashville. The vibe is fantastic. I remember a nice beer selection and solid food. I would like to revisit.

Great place to visit for beer people. Very wide selection of beers on tap, seriously they have a lot. Something here for everyone. Right in downtown/the gulch Nashville. I visit every time I am in town. PLENTY space, with couches, tables, bar, standing room....

Visited mid day on December 28th. This is the 13th Flying Saucer I've been to and I certainly like the downtown/historical building locations (Fort Worth, St Louis, etc) better than the strip mall locations (Charlotte, Cordova, etc). This one is in a historic train station which gives it some extra points although the parking situation was a bit confusing, especially with construction going on in the area. This location has a nice front area with couches great for relaxing adjacent to the dark pub main room with the bar and large tapwall. The taplist was more than adequate although less local than most locations, perhaps because the local beer scene seems a bit under development compared to many places. Food seemed to be the same menu as most Saucers.

My second Flying Saucer visit... Austin was my first (what was their first location)?

Nice digs in a converted train station or something, but hard to park if you're from out of town, or even hoofing it I guess. I found enough time for a quick one with 30 minutes on a meter across the way.

Great selection, and a very good bartender. The crowd was slim as it was prior to work letting out. I felt welcome and it was nice, but I didn't feel like it had a particularly "Nashville" vibe - in fact, I kind of felt like the whole Flying Saucer was also just a tourist like me ~ it didn't quite gel. Why? I don't know, and maybe I'm half off the rails on this one, but that's how I saw it. Still, I'll probably head back the next time I'm in town (in like a week or two).

Great place in a historic building. Rathskeller style beer hall with high ceiling decorated with plates and plaques of people who've drank 200 beers there. Beautiful Dark wood decor, with a bunch of taps 50+ as I recall, several bottles too. Service was good, we were in on a Sunday and it wasn't very busy. Friends had food, and it looked great. Cool menu of beer-drinking food. Plenty of local beers, which is awesome. I see there are several locations throughout the heartland. I would stop at any of these that I happen to be near in my travels. I would say this is a must-stop in Nashville.

Pretty standard for a Flying Saucer but it has a funkier vibe than some (thinking about Dallas for instance).

Solid selection as should be expected. Food is typical for flying saucer. Staff is friendly. It is in a great location to grab a drink before doing something else downtown in walking distance (Johnny Cash Museum, Ryman etc.). Also compared to the beer offerings at most of the honky tonk type bars around it, it's damn tough to beat.

It's all about selection, selection, and selection. You can't find this many taps anywhere else in Nashville. The bartenders are awesome and the vibe is laid back. It can get busy some nights, and food menu is average, but nobody's coming here for the grub. It's all about the beer at the Flying Saucer, and they are killing it.

A very popular place to drink great beer in Nashville. Has kind of a club/lounge/house (home, not the music) feel. Service can be a touch lacking when it gets crowded, but still a fun place to go with a group, especially after visiting the neighboring Frist museum. Pretty extensive beer list with good weekly specials. If you like craft and are in Nashville, this is a good place to start. Worth seeking out if you've got a weekend.

Parking sucks.

Outstanding place to grab a beer in Nashville. I Like all of the flying saucers I have been to. Great beer selection. Always a fun crown and our server was very knowledgeable.

What can I say? Probably the best place in all of Nashville to get your drink on and it's located next door to the Frist so you can get your art on and let some of the booze wear off. I'm a UFO member working on my green plate so I've hit this place enough to know it's pedigree. Thing is that they have a decent food selection too, although the Pork Belly sandwich is gone and you should be sad for that, even if you're never had it. Large tap wall, drink specials every day of the week (the "fire sale"). Just join the UFO club and make what you drink count towards something.

I will straight up start with I like this place has a neat vibe to it it's in part of an old railroad station. Lots of taps good local representation my only beef was I felt like stouts were under represented maybe time of year? I think I've become jaded though because Tennessee distro is kinda average I felt they didn't have anything stand out on tap, but it's still a very solid tap list. Food is fairly average their renowned pretzel is good but not astonishing. A fairly knowledgable bartenders which is very nice I asked for a fruity IPA the last time I was in and she laid it on me.

I love the Saucer, it has a huge selection of beer on tap and in bottle. Menu is sorted by Style and it is massive. I would suggest sitting where you can see the huge chalkboard, as it has new arrivals and exits not on the menu. It is very close to Vandy, so you get a lot of young college kids which can be annoying. The food is average, nothing really to rave about. If you are in Nashville, you should go here.
