We had dinner and beer here on a Friday night visit to Memphis. Both were good. My husband had a pretzel topped with cheese & sausage that he raved about. I had a roast beef sandwich that was quite tasty. The most amazing thing about this place was the number of beer choices - Well over 100!

You can't beat the beer selection here- styles and options abound. The food has always been ok but I've not eve been overly impressed. Service is better during non-peak times. It can get rather loud at night, when it converts to more of a bar scene vs restaurant. Convenient to several hotels in downtown.

My wife and I were travelling through on a week long drive down to the south and back to Ontario and on trips like this we search out interesting pubs and craft breweries to have dinner in. Great place to get a good bite to eat and some craft beer. We enjoyed our visit and it was just another great... More

On average there's a good mix of locals and tourists. One of the best times to go is after a Memphis Grizzlies game.Especially if the Grizzlies won! The decor is average and atmosphere is often loud. They have darts and a pool table which makes it more enjoyable on a slow evening. Their mixed drinks are okay. If you're looking... More

Weren't staying long so we just wanted to sit have a beer and people watch. This bar is next street over its like an Irish pub. Every... More

"Draught Emporium" says it all. Lots of beers on tap. Great, eclectic collection. Fresh, and served correctly. Even more in bottles. Food is OK, at best. Nothing out of the ordinary. Some of the sandwiches were made with supermarket deli meat. Pepperoni pizza treated like it came from 'Za Hut. German plate was uninspired. Great atmosphere. So-so server. Great beer.... More

We came to Flying Saucer on two of our three nights in Memphis. There are two rooms with the bar stretching the entire length of the building so we never had any issue getting a seat at the bar. The draft selection is excellent, as is the food. Tuesday night is trivia night and they held two competitions back to... More

Great beer choices and very friendly staff. Asked if they could change any TV to a specific football game and bar staff had no problem doing this. We were here early, but it got crowded later on. Enjoyed trying different beers from across the country.

My wife and I visited Memphis Saucer during our cross-US road trip in October 2016. We are Saucer fans, and always go there when we travel. Great beers here, and we enjoyed the vivant around the bar with staff and other customers - great people all. If our review has informed you, please reward us with your "Helpful" vote. Thank...
