In town for the Patrick Henry Half Marathon we wanted pizza and choose the Brick Oven Bistro off the reviews here. The service was very good, our waitress was very friendly and helpful, and she explained menu items and was quick to refill drinks or remove empty dishes. The food on the other hand was nothing special. We tried the spicy fries for a starter than had two pizzas; one with egg plant, ham, and mushrooms while the other had ham, peppers, and olives. The fries were ok though we thought they could have been a little crisper and the seasoning was nothing special. The first pizza had canned mushrooms and fried egg plant, this made the pizza greasy. We thought both pizzas had too much cheese. When they serve the pizza they place it on a pizza stand. We ordered the 14 inch size since the waitress said they were smaller and cut into 6 slices. Well the pizzas were huge and the slices were huge. We could have easily shared one pizza. The restaurant had ceiling fans going on high plus the A/C going which caused our hot from the oven pizzas to cool to room temp in about 4 minutes. This did not help with the taste. We walked away thinking that the meal was a waste of time and money and had wished we had tried someplace else. All in all Brick Oven Bistro is nothing special and I would recommend looking for any pizza place if staying in Ashland.
