“Great wood fired pizza!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

Have eaten at WS several times and have never left disappointed! Pizza is excellent for those who like a thin crisp crust and savory toppings. No grease here, if you like that go somewhere else. The building has great charm and the outdoor seating is nice when the weather is right! Micro brew lovers should sample the beer as well. Go early though to beat the crowd because it fills up fast!

“SO GOOD!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

Went with some friends for lunch and everything was wonderful. Staff was just attentive enough without being there all the time. Food was hot and fabulous, and I love the fact that if you order coffee they make it in a French Press so it is perfectly fresh every time. Our table ordered the fried green tomatoes stack and crab dip for appetizer. The crab dip is hot and oh so good...no good does not even describe how phenomenal it was. And coming from someone who doesn't like tomatoes...that appetizer was very good too. Pizza is usually big enough to split but good thin crust cooked in stone oven. Brownie sundae for dessert that was split between a table of 4 people. Hot, gooey and good! Highly recommend

“Pizza is excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2014

Had their Barbeque chicken pizza. Excellent. Crust was crispy, but not hard. Toppings were first rate. Try one of their craft beers too. I had an Oatmeal Stout that was as good as I've ever tasted. The service was attentive.

“Excellent Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

Waterstone Fire Roasted Pizza was the best spot we ate at while in Lynchburg, which is why we're giving it a full five starts. The service was friendly and the food was good. I would not spend my money again on the appetizers: they are overpriced and not very good (although you get a large quantity, so if that's what the priority is...).

My husband recommends the pizza: a great crust and nice sauce to cheese ratio. I found the cobb salad to be delightful. If you go there, ask for Josh. He is efficient and friendly.

“Average pizza and Italian food; good beer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

Full disclosure - I lived in Italy for 4 years and have a wood fired pizza oven in my backyard. I felt the pizza here was not terribly authentic as a wood fired pizza; mine was a white pizza and seemed a bit too wet and soft. It wasn't bad, just not my type since I prefer the authentic pizza napolitana. I had started out with the bruschetta (which the bartender corrected my pronunciation to brushetta for; a demonstration of ignorance I always find a bit grating, but is encouraged by that awful American brand of Freschetta pizza that mangles Italian linguistic rules in their usage). It wasn't bad, but seemed odd as well - a stack of toasted pieces of bread and a pile of topping to assemble yourself rather than an actual plate of bruschetta; not what I expected. Seemed like there was way more topping than necessary.

The draught beers, on the other hand, were quite good. They pour five from the craft brewery upstairs as well as a guest beer. All were good, but I preferred the pilsner and the honey wheat. Helpful hint: you can buy a 22 oz. mug to use for $10 that they will fill for the same price as a pint, giving you an extra 6 ounces; the cost of a pint being $4.50 gives you a simple break even to see if it's worth it. I'm a sucker for souvenir beer mugs so I got one even though I didn't expect to have enough to really make it pay off, but it will if I have another business trip here.

I would come back for at least the beers and explore other items on the menu. What I got wasn't really up to my standards, but they're probably a bit higher than most for this cuisine.
