The staff needs a serious attitude adjustment. They treat you like they're doing YOU a favor. It's very strange, and it's consistent every single time. I go back because the pizza is really good but I don't go back often because who needs that aggravation.

It’s been a long, long time since we’ve written a one-star review. On a late Monday afternoon we took-out two pizzas selected from their standard menu. The menu is heavily inclined to pizza, so we tried their vegetarian “Poison Ivy” and their award-winning meatball pizza....More

Great service. Fast prep. Great atmosphere for family. Not too noisy. Walking distance from Essex pedestrian walking area. Definitely recommend as a pit stop to try one of their award winning pizzas.

I'm a huge pizza lover, had to check this place out, and it wasn't a disappointment. I ordered the "Ender"; can't wait to try more. Great service, beer & drink selection, and atmosphere also.

We stopped midday for a slice. Outside seating was available, though it is limited. Pizza was good, and the decor is definitely 80s funky!

The atmosphere was warm and relaxed at 4 PM and the service was warm and timely. I was the most surprised at how delicious the salad was, as well as the pizza. I would definitely return to try more of the menu.

Flying Saucer Pizza Company landed in downtown Salem on the historic date of August 3, 2012 - directly next to its sister restaurant Gulu-Gulu Cafe. The mission: to abduct traditional pizza and give it a healthy gourmet spin. Our eclectic pizza menu showcases a variety of fresh and local ingredients. With our designer pizzas inspired by available seasonal ingredients, our menu evolves and changes throughout the year. In addition to our great selection of New York style pizza, we serves great salads, beers, wines, and dessert! Charlie the Space Pug, the Flying Saucer's fearless leader, offers peace (and warm bellies) to all who enter - omnivores, vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-intolerant earthlings alike.
