The pizza at Coals is worth the pilgrimage. It is that good. Just look at the rating on TA. We went on a Sunday night and C was packed by 6:30. The restaurant only serves beer and wine. However, the IPA beer selections are impressive. Also, the atmosphere is very casual. Easy Peasy. Highly recommend.

Arrived late around 8:40-9:00 pm for dinner. 4 persons. Still very busy but we got a table. I hear the wait can be quite long.

Ordered the Pure bliss,a Rustic, and A Dean Martin pizza, plus 4 interesting beers. Also an arugula and Cesar salad.

The pizzas cost around 15-16$. The pizzas are actually grilled , and almost matzo or cracker thin, great for low carb folks, but not really what I consider a real pizza. If you want real chewy thin pizza , with hot toppings , then you must go somewhere else. These pizzas won’t satisfy you. This is not the place for you!!

The toppings are excellent , lots of topping applied too , they don’t skimp. such as the ricotta , pesto and tomato on the pure bliss pizza. ...the rustic has mozz , truffle oil and mushrooms. Also the toppings are not really hot ( just warm) at all, and must only be grilled , sort of? , and not be baked.

The cracker thin crust is grill/and charred intentionally. You must like your pizzas charred. Pizzas are so thin and only grilled, so they only take about 5 min to cook.
So service is pretty quick.

The salads are exceptional , really fresh and large and are about $10.
Order them !

A lot of folks come here for the beers apparently and they have some difficult to get stuff , like farm house , sour beers , etc. ( also Naragansett!?? A Worthless beer. ) they have 7-8 alternating beers on tap. And lots of other bottles and cans. Lots of single and double iPas. Some very limited release. People come for the beers ....apparently.

The food is very limited in variety , grilled matzo-like crust pizzas , salads with lots of greens, simply dressed , and they do also offer roasted Brussels sprouts and grilled wings. No pastas , No baked Italian dishes, no other grilled or sautéed meats. “Forget abouditt!! “

Open later on Friday and Saturday.
Very Tough to get a table though!!
Small place.

Also Hard to find parking.
Try the public lot near the Portchester Train station?

The restaurant I worked at held their yearly staff holiday party at Coals. We had the whole place to ourselves, that being said the service was great and they kept the delicious thin crust pizza constantly coming. Their ever changing beers on tap are always interesting and exciting. This along with a super knowledgeable staff to explain each brew in as much detail as you'd like. I would recommend Coals to anyone down with the pizza n beer meal brought to a new level.
