I love Flatwater for several reasons: - Great location over the water. - Great drinks that are reasonably priced. - Tasty food. - Beautiful people. - Handsome dogs. Actually, if I were to rearrange the above order, I'd probably put the handsome dogs as number 1. Last time I was there I saw the greatest bulldog ever. he was hilarious.

Staff is wonderful, wonderful!! Suggest sitting outside if possible. Salmon sandwich AMAZING and very big! Expect to leave full. My sister and her daughter actually split the pulled pork nachos because they were so huge. My daughter's order was incorrect and they were very quick about correcting it and took it off the bill even though were stated it was... More

My husband and I were staying at a motel with our dog while our floors were being refinished. I suggested that we find a place to bring Beau instead of leaving him alone or having fast food again. We went to Broad Ripple and decided to try Flatwater. The patio was large and covered, and they had a great big... More

Great music at the Flatwater and the crowd is fun to watch. Get there early and try the walleye. Good walleye is hard to find and Flatwater gets it right. Good beer selection, fun drinks, and lots of great local bands make this a fun place to hang out in the Ripple.

We frequent this restaurant a lot because of the ambiance and the bands. SunKing beer, outdoor deck, right on the canal, good seafood, all adds up to a great summer night out. In the heart of Broad Ripple which is such a fun destination. Whenever I visit, I feel like I'm on vacation in Florida! Did I mention the seafood?... More

I admit I've never made it onto the patio deck, but it looks fun. I've had a few meals inside and they've been good except for one time, my first time here. I'm glad I gave Flatwater another chance as I've never been disappointed since. The meals and beers have been fine. My last waitress was around when needed and... More

My husband and I have been coming here since it changed over from being Bazbeaux's Pizza. (Side note, Bazbeaux's move across the street and ROCKS!) The portions are very generous and everything is so delicious! You will be amazed that this little place has such amazing food. The service is surprising awesome. I say surprising because when you first enter... More
