“The Crust is Perfect”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

The server was fine but not enthusiastic and I was a little worried. However everything ended up just fine. She did miss that we wanted jalapeños added to the entire pizza but she brought us some when we mentioned the oversight. They weren’t as good as they’d have been fire roasted on the pizza but what else can you do after the fact? We were sitting by the large, rough hewn stone pizza oven and were able to watch the entire process from stretching the dough into round shapes to baking it in the wood fired oven. The old fashioned wood paddles used to move the pizza in and out (and to different positions) in the oven were charming tools. I could imagine them being used 100s of years ago. We ordered a pizza that was half and half and we were charged exactly what half of each type pizza would have cost - $9.50 for one half and $9.25 for the other. We found the crust to be fabulous and I think I’d have been happy with the crust coated with only a little olive oil and garlic. One thing is certain, you don’t need to have much in the way of toppings with crust this good. The pizza is a tad on the pricey side but you can’t complain about the quality of the ingredients used.

“Great Unique Pizzas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Cooked in an actual wood fire oven these pizzas turn out great. They also have a local and varied beer selection. The place is slightly noisy since it is also a candle-pin bowling alley, but don't let this detour you.

“handmade pizza + beer + candlepin bowling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Flatbread makes it really easy to spend a few afternoon or late night hours with great pizza, good beer and something surprisingly challenging in candlepin bowling. Good for all sorts...family, friends, or couples.

“Great company event”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Brought the team here for a late afternoon team event. Pizza was great, bowling a blast. Service was prompt, courteous and friendly. What a neat place. Does not look like much from the outside.

Lots of great pizza, very funky.

“Great Pizza-Fun Place!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Great place to take kids and salads and pizza great! Menu variety is excellent however a bit noisy.
Waitstaff a little overwhelmed with busy venue but food got out quickly. Nice variety of beer and beverages. A bit pricy but quality and quantity enough to have a take home bag (box).
Had kids with us and they enjoyed watching pizza made in wood fire oven! This replaces a previous review that contained an error!
