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!

Exactly what we wanted

I ordered the Black Sheep Pizza (highly recommended!) and my husband ordered a pepperoni pizza. We weren't blown away by the quality of the pizza, but still great pizza nonetheless. The wine and beer selection was awesome, and we had great service.

I was in Washington DC for a trade show and found this restaurant near my hotel. I got the Salmon dinner which was amazing. Great place and great service.

Staying at the Residence Inn around the corner and needing dinner, I stopped in here. I wasn't up for pizza but saw the mussels on the menu. The waiter highly recommended them and he was right! Best mussels I have had in awhile. The waiter also carefully steered me away from the tiramisu and towards the coconut gelato, which was... More

Lunch on a hot summer afternoon. Very nice staff. Ate lamb pizza - sides of grilled carrots and shallots - huge and best veggie side I've had this summer. The appetizers are about 80% there. - very tasty lamb meat balls - the calamari is average. Needs less breading and dipping sauce that is more compatible. This one served with... More

While in Arlington to attend a High Honors burial of our 3 Star Uncle, we met his last wishes by throwing an Irish Wake for 100+ of men who served with him. To accomplish this, we decided to use this The Fire Works to handle the bash. We could not have been more satisfied with the event coordinator, Jason, and... More

Adjacent to the Residence Inn where we stayed. Were very satisfied with the food and the price. Service was great and the kids loved the pizza as well. Happy kids make for a happy vacation.

This is a popular spot for wood fired pizza and wide selection of artisan beer. The all meat specialty pizza with an extra spinach item was our selection. It was delicious. We also tried a couple of Hefeweizen beer selections and they were also varied and a good pairing for our pizza.

Went around 10:30pm on a Friday. Found a parking spot right across the street, so I knew that my night was going to be great! We sat outside and ordered the wings (perfect combination of sweet and spicy) and pepperoni pizza. Our waitress suggested the margarita, and that was great also. If you are looking for a spot to chill... More

This place doesn't disappoint. I've had their mussels, pizza, meatball sandwich, and everything I've ever ordered have been delicious. It is a fantastic place for anytime dining. They also have a large dining area outdoors so it's great for conversation without the need to shout over your neighboring tables.
