Just okay

My husband and I became fans of coal fire pizza during a trip to Florida, so we were excited that Coal Fire Pizza was close to our residence. We had no wait time for a table.

I've been here about four times over the past year and the pizza has always been great, with multiple sauces to choose from that are always delicious. The wings are normally really good but they were a little dry and plain this last visit. The salads are good and the one with bacon and shrimp we had last time was... More

The food is always good here and there is a great selection of beer. Try the grilled Caesar salad because it is delicious!

I'd been hoping to try the pizza at this place but, today I only wanted a sub to go. Coalby's are what they call a sub and I wanted a steak and cheese. I asked if I could get the "Cheddar Cheese Steak" $8.95 wo/ mushrooms and peppers. Guess I should have just gotten the "Ribeye" $11.95. I would have... More

We had dinner at Coal Fire on 5/3 in the evening. We should have left when I saw how dirty the floor was in the entrance, it appeared as if no one had cleaned it in days. Our meal was not bad, the pizza crust was wonderful and service was pretty good. I couldn't get over how dirty everything was,... More

Stopped in for a sandwich and wings. Ordered the prime rib coalby which was very good. Moist and tender, I would suggest this if your not wanting pizza. The wings were sort of a let down as they did not live up to my expectation of what I had had at other Coal Pizza places. They seemed to lack any... More

This is a local place for me so I visit on a regular basis. Kelly was our server tonight. She was very pleasanr, took our drink orders and quickly had them at the table. Food orders and table service equally as quick and good.. I like a thin crust pizza and the ones here are great.

Great pizza but always very busy. The restaurant loses a lot of seating in the winter when the outside patio closes. It could use a bigger space. Service is varied. We have had both awesome service and we poor service. Overall through I would definitely give it a try.

The pizza here is so good. It's one of my favorite pizzas. I love Pub Dog too. The ambiance is fine—it's a casual pizza parlor—but the service can be a gamble. I've had good service and I've had lousy service. Many servers here seem to be high schoolers. Please hire people who are not so uncomfortable around little kids! Good... More
