Coal Fire's pizza is similar to a Bertucci's pizza with regard to taste and the way it is cooked. We had the Margharita and the thin crust was cooked just as we like it. The 12" size was just the right size for my wife and myself. It's nice to have another pizza choice in the area. The service was... More

Went for afternoon pizza and drinks. We sat on the bar so that we could watch the games. We got the field greens salad which was fantastic. We had a 16 inch pizza with traditional sauce and pepperoni. The crust was light and crispy just as you would expect. Our server was super friendly and right on top of things... More

Great food! Amazing service! What more can you really ask for or want when dining out! The pizza is flavorful and the meatballs are to die for! The grilled Caesar salad is second to none!

Pizza always great. Informal setting but good food and good service. Never had a bad meal. Service varies but is never bad. Can be loud but ok.

I always enjoy having dinner in the bar area at Coal Fire. My favorite is the grilled caesar salad which we both had topped with chicken. We also shared a bottle of wine taking advantage of their Tuesday half price wine special. Ashley is an awesome bartender who is extremely attentive, knowledgeable, engaging and professional!

We arrived at opening time, they were still setting up everything and seemed surprised by our arrival. The server sat us and brought out or drinks. It took us a few minutes to look over the menu, pretty... More

Coal Fire was not our destination but glad we ended up there! Due to a large line we ended up trying Coal Fire and are glad we did. The pizza was delicious, we had their "signature" pizza which was absolutely amazing. We sat in the bar (while small) was comfortable and the bar manager, Ashley was extremely nice and customer...
