    Nothing too fancy, just basic food. We would have liked to see more local beer on tap.

    What a great place, and a great atmosphere. Staff is so friendly, and the food is unreal. Make sure to ask about the specials since they change all the time, and have one of their draft beers.

    It doesn't matter how hot it is outside, there are always tables in the share on the patio. Plus, the view is something not to be missed. The name Flatwater on the Canal couldn't be more accurate.

    If you are hungry, order a plate of pulled pork nachos. They are to die for. If you ask for a side of BBQ sauce you get an even deeper experience! Delicious.
