“Fun Dining on the Waterfront!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

There is a reason that we keep coming back to Flatbread. It is just a fun place to go. It has a funky granola ambiance that is very endearing to us. The food is good. The servers are generally enthusiastic, and the atmosphere is lively. It's fun to be seated near the wood-fired pizza oven and to watch the pizza makers working. It's usually a busy, hopping place, so plan on a wait if you go at a popular time.

“Organic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

I think if they wanted you to describe their restaurant in one word, it would be organic! We decsribe it as, "Where everything is organic except for the chairs!" Get ready to sit and listen as the server describes your choices while using organic every other word. It is actually a little endearing. Our waitress, Christine, was delightful. The view, brew and dessert were great. The salad and pizza were just okay. The berry-vinagerette was more of a very-garlic-erette and the pizza was burnt and just not very flavorful. The chemical-free pepperoni and sausage was a bit bland compared to "midwest" pepperoni and sausage. However, the Apple Crisp dessert with vanilla and cinnamon ice cream was superb! We would go again but order something different, and ask for Christine evrytime!

“Earth Muffin Pizza Lovin'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Like it fresh?, Like it local and organically grown? With all the beers on tap and the freshest wood fired pizza around you can't go wrong. We had the house salad and the house special and were not disappointed. It is a bit noisy in there though so hard to visit with our family but great for a night out with friends and after a few beers your own loud voice will just be part of the din.

“Good Pizza, Good Beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

I enjoyed the food and atmosphere at the Flatbread Company. I thought the pizza was quite tasty, along with the beer. I would definitely return for more! This place is right along the pier and you can look out onto the water if you sit near one of the window seats.

“extraordinary pizza, flatbread style”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

This is a fun location, with great outdoor seating on the pier, excellent service, and terrific pizzas with unusual toppings. The salads and beers are also good. We went for lunch and wish we'd had another night in town to return for dinner.
