Good sandwich.

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... read 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

I am from NYC so I am very picky about pizza. This place uses a stone oven but typically burns the crust, overcharges and does not use very much cheese on their marghertita pizza. The pizza lacks the simple flavors of the Brooklyn pizza I adore. I want o to taste the crust , the sauce, basil and the cheese.... More

This looks like a nice pizzeria on the web but the photos are deceiving. We were very disappointed in the pizza. Not only did the crust have no taste / texture, we ordered a cheese pizza but it came out missing the cheese (see pic). My son was so disappointed. One good thing is we had a great server (Bridgette).

The happy hour is only for the bar area so although you ordered from the table, you will have a regular price. They even have the bar door close to enter in the salon. The pizza was ok the price regular....

Very nice brick oven pizzas. We also love the onion rings and wings. They could have a better beer selection, but otherwise this is a great place to drop by for either lunch or dinner. It does fill up quickly on weekends, like all places in Columbia.

I really enjoyed the pizza, my husband had a sandwich which was absolutely delicious. The menu pretty good, I wish they had appetizers and desserts, the wings were suggested as an appetizer, but I just don't like them, and I enjoy having appetizers and dessert in restaurants. The pizza was really good, a smidge salty, but that's a personal preference.... More
