Description: Tuscarora Mill's owners and chef have created a winning pizza restaurant by opening Fire Works in Leesburg in 2006. Next comes our "city-fied" addition of the ultimate pizzeria and bar. How do we do it? Great pizzas from the five-ton wood fired oven , a superb selection of draft and bottled beers, perfectly picked wine list and cool cocktails are a very good start. Add a comfy urban setting that puts you at ease while it wakes up your senses and we are pretty well along the way. Finish with a commitment to deliver superb food and sincere caring service and you've got the The Fire Works!

Went here for dinner with my wife. Got seated quickly and we had a great table. The waiter was very friendly and the food was quick and good. Plus its walking distance to a great movie theater.

We dine at Fireworks at least one evening when visiting Arlington, VA. The restaurant is adjacent to a Residence Inn so it draws many travelers as well as locals. On this night I had the meatball sub and chips. The sandwich looks large and is smothered in cheese and sauce. The problem is the meatballs. I took two bites into... More

Jon H, General Manager at The Fire Works, responded to this review

Joe, I apologize for your meatball sub being disappointing. Please bring any issue to the attention of the server or manager and we will make it right. We could have quickly made you another sub with double meatballs or taken it off your check. Please let us know in the future if something is not great and we will fix... More

Combo pizza place, brew pub, and bar, with nice outdoor and indoor spaces to relax and enjoy the atmosphere. It can get noisy indoors, and it does crowd up, but it is worth it. In addition to pizza, they have a wide range of items on their menu to appeal to what I have observed to be a wide range... More

My wife and I had a late lunch outside. It was a week day. Pleasant atmosphere, prompt service, good food. The prices were reasonable. My wife went back the next day while I worked and indicated a similar experience.

Saw an add and the pizza looked phenomenal, unfortunately a fire in the days prior left us unable to try it. The menu had been adjusted to make calzones out of their popular pizzas and we were very pleased. The garlic knots, calamari, and smokey blue calzone were awesome! Great selection of beers on tap and in bottles as well.... More
