Description: Tuscarora Mill's owners and chef have created a winning pizza restaurant...
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!

Great for groups

Accommodated us and our late train. Great service! Have visited Fireworks for two years in a row w/ a group and have never been disappointed. Outdoor space is awesome and bar is cool too.

A great atmosphere and good menu - but service was only average with few smiles. I ordered a margherita pizza which was pretty good, but not great.

We visited Fireworks on a Saturday night around 8 pm. Despite the place being packed and being too it was a 25 to 35 min wait it only. Took about 15 minutes to get seated. They have a lot of Pizzas to choose from and if you don't like what you see you can have one made to order. They... More

My flight was late and I was starving by the time I got to the adjacent hotel. Fortunately, Fire Works was still seating. I found the food to be above average; It was not amazing but I certainly enjoyed it. The service was a bit slow and inattentive, perhaps because it was after the dinner rush had passed. Regardless, I... More

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

After a long day of walking in DC, this was some great pizza. The staff was also very friendly. Nice atmosphere in a really cool neighborhood. Definitely check this out!
