This place is famous for its over 200 beers to choose from... and thats just on tap...I think they have over 300. Its informal and always buzzing with a crowd. I believe there may be other locations as well, but this place is a SA must if you like beer and company. I had corporate housing across the street and... More

On Friday the 13th, we went looking for some good food and drink. We found this spot when we left my Brother-in-law's house. We were so excited to eat drink and be merry. The Falcons were smoking the Seahawks and the vibe was awesome. I had the Turkey Burger with a side salad and my favorite beer (Kristallweissbier). Needless to... More

An excellent beer selection is what drew me here. In that regard they did not disappoint. I only had soft pretzels to soak up the suds but they were standard good quality pub food.

This place is great: fantastic bear selection, good specials throughout the week, superb wait staff, and did I mention a great beer selection? Many 16 oz drafts at $5/ea. Nice atmosphere with a large indoor space and some outside seating. Great music mix. Sports on a few tv's--very inclusive vibe. Dart boards. Chess boards on some tables. I would come... More

The Flying Saucer is definitely the place to go in San Antonio if you want access to a wide variety of beer, and decent food. When you walk in, you see the reason they call it the Flying Saucer, because they let people buy their own plate to mount on the ceiling, which creates a unique decor. The food overall... More

I went to this restaurant because I had seen that they had a dog-friendly patio and my husband and I wanted to bring our puppy (he’s three years-old but still a puppy to us) to dinner. The patio setting was perfect for a casual dinner outside with our pup. We got some beers and sandwiches and were able to hang... More

The service was extremely bad and we found hair in our food. Not in one but two plates. It was cold inside and no fans or cooling devices outside.

This place has lost it's luster due to a decline in server attentiveness. Thier best servers have moved on to bigger, better things.

Stopped here and was floored by the HUGE selection of beer!! They have tons of choices from all around. Food is not bad either- had a pretzel and it was fantastic!! Atmosphere is European influence. Service was good, staff were friendly and courteous. Overall was a great place to stop for cold beer and good food!! Would go back!

We dropped in today (our third visit) for lunch and sat outside on the patio. Dogs are allowed on the patio, so FYI. There are tables with and without umbrellas, but we had no problem getting a table with. The beer options are extensive and the food menu provides lots of options. The service was good and when on that... More
