Coal Fire has a casual atmosphere on the restaurant side. We are always seated quickly. Food is dependable. Salads are usually good. Service is friendly. It has a nice neighborhood feel to it.

We have been to Coal Fire before & love the pizza. The signature sauce is awesome, the pizza is always cooked to perfection & the service remains among the best. I ordered the wings which I had had in the past. Still the same great taste, just a little greasy this time, but not a deal breaker. The only thing... More

This thin crust pizza is baked in a 900 degree coal fire oven. They offer three different sauces: classic, signature, and spicy. In my opinion, the classic sauce is the best. The signature is somewhat sweet and the spicy is merely the signature made spicy--but you can still taste the sweet, which isn't my thing. I wish they would spice... More

I've read and heard great things about Coal Fire and decided to try on a recent Friday evening. Service was good, but please, this is so-so (and overpriced) pizza at best. The crust was not as crisp as it should have been so I sent it back to go into the oven for a few more minutes. The signature sauce,... More

Best Margherita pizza I have ever had! My friends liked the "ring of fire" pizza. We've been here several times with friends and family, and they've tried other items on the menu, but I keep getting the same pizza, Margherita, because I really like the thin crust and fresh basil leaves.

Relatively new to our area, Coal Fire was a pleasant surprise. We usually go there with another couple and sit in the lounge area where we can watch sports and take advantage of a generous happy hour. The ingredients on the pizzas always seem fresh and they have three "spice levels" from classic to spicy...they're all good. Ashley, our mixologist/waitress... More

Coal Fire is one of my favorite restaurants and I love it! They have great pizza and fries! The pepperoni pizza is always great!

I work in the area and heard a lot about Coal Fire. Stopped in and the host was friendly and had a big smile. I decided to order my food to go. I ordered a sausage and pepperoni with classic sauce. The pizza was delicious, thin crispy crust, spicy Italian sausage and pepperoni. Will definitely return.
