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.

Fun Atmosphere

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.

Went on a Friday at 5:30 and were told there is no happy hour on Friday, That put me off in the beginning. Our group asked for a table outside - no problem. But the waitress must have been having a bad day. From the very beginning she acted like serving us was a big imposition. The orders were mixed... More

The pizzas were pretty good, not served piping hot, but good flavor. Very good draught beer and a solid selection of bottles. Apps were not as good, lamb meatballs needed something, more spice or possibly salt. Salad with pistachios and fruit and maple dressing was a miss. Decent value for the price but would try somewhere else next time

A colleague and I planned on light snacks and ended up sharing a full meal with lamb meatballs, calamari, and pizza. The food was tasty and certainly plentiful.

We came in for a special beer event and it was packed with other beer lovers like us. The happy hour munchies are fantastic and their empanadas are tasty. I got the grilled cheese for my dinner and it paired perfectly with the beer. I highly recommend going for happy hour!

The Fire Works American Pizzeria & Bar is an excellent fashionable eatery with great food, a fantastic outside eating area with a large fire pit, and a top notch bar.

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.
