The pizza was good here. Nice thin crust. Many different types of sauces to choose from. We had a large party here so we all got different things. The pizza definitely needs to be offered some more cheese. It is tasty but portions for toppings are scarce. Especially cheese. Wings were good they said. I didn't try those. We had... More

Can believe It took so long to finally stop by this place. Great tasting pizza and by far the best I have had in a long time. It has to be the way they cook the pizza but with out a doubt you will not be disappointed stopping in here.

The pizza here is really great, the service is friendly and even though it doesn't have just a huge selection of beers, the assortment is good and I can always find something tasty to go with the beer. I've eaten here many times and I'm never disappointed. Wish they delivered! But they do have take-out

We love the thin sliced pizza and this is the best we've ever had. The service is always excellent. Go for the spicy sauce. The plain sauce is very bland and has no taste. Probably good for children though.

Went here for lunch with my daughter one day. We both ordered the beef brisket sandwich which was listed on their menu as a favorite. The sandwich was very bland - it supposable had horseradish sauce but, we could not taste it all. In fact, my daughter put ketchup to make it less bland. The meat was tender but, it... More

We lived in Crofton 8 years and this has to be our go to family dining spot. Great, consistent food and service at a very, very economic price point. A family of four with lots of food and drink can eat for about $35. We live a half hour away now and still find ourselves making the trip for the... More

The pizza at Coal Fire is one of favorites in the area. It does not rank up with a 2 Amys in D.C. or other authentic Neapolitan pizzas, but it falls just a level below. The rest of the food is mediocre to good. But, aren't we going there for the pizza? Another plus is the nice and courteous service,... More
