A wonderful surprise ... Loved the food; from salads to sandwiches, to Pizza, to the surprising twist to the chicken wings (were great and have never eaten ones like these before)! For any food lover, a must try and the staff members will treat you like a royalty!

We had heard a lot about Coal Fire, and decided to give it a try armed with a discount coupon. We won't be return customers. We went there for dinner one evening, and found the service friendly and prompt. They have a good selection of bottled beers (no drafts other than the usual Bud and Miller). We decided to go...

My wife and I went there on date night. We were seated immediately and the waitress came over quickly. The pizza we ordered came out quickly and was delicious! The crust was perfect and the spicy pizza sauce awesome. I highly recommend this restaurant.

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.
