Description: We are not just ordinary pizza buffet, we are Fire & Stone. We are a proud family-owned & operated pizzeria with a genuine commitment to true family tradition. Majority of all items on the menu we serve are fresh made daily, as well as our pizza sauce, dough, dressings, dinner sauces and so on. Our Endless pizza bar includes two fresh, homemade soups, salad bar with 24 items and a complimentary ice cream sundae. Fire & Stone is working very hard on expanding it's horizons and offerings, but the real business is still PIZZA. Please enjoy one of America's staples at Fire & Stone Pizza. BET YOU CANNOT EAT JUST ONE SLICE.

Get there very close to 5 p.m. or wait for 30 minutes. Nothing fancy. Pizza buffet similar to Ci-Ci's except they have unique ingredient mixtures. Thin crust. Small salad bar, finish with a sundae. CASH ONLY so bring some... The price makes this place very popular with retirees/snow birds. Crowded seating inside - once you get a seat. It's o.k. quality if you're not a gourmand but the value can't be beat!

We ate at Fire & Stone twice during our vacation. The first time was evening, the second for lunch. It was much more crowded in the evening, but the pizza was exceptionally good both times. We arrived right at opening time for lunch and there were only a couple of pizzas on the buffet, so they asked for requests and made suggestions for gourmet pizza combinations. It was some of the best pizza we've had in a long time! The lentil soup was tasty, too! Finally, we enjoyed the ice cream for dessert. I'd tell you that we'd go back again, but you know we already did!

This review is of the Bradenton Beach location at the corner of Bridge Street and Gulf Drive. We had driven by this restaurant earlier in our stay and finally decided to stop with the intent of getting a pizza to go. Upon entering, we were greeted by a friendly woman (one of the owners) who told us to sit anywhere while we waited for our pizza to go. My wife and I decided to order drinks while waiting and admired the interior decor in the bar area. We ordered a great white pizza with bacon,mozzarella, garlic and other toppings and it was fabulous. The drinks were reasonable, and the service was attentive. We will be back.

My only negative is that that they haven't made themselves known. The local newspapers and their own website only advertise the Cortez location and it's hard to get information on this location ahead of your visit. They are cash only, so make sure you're prepared.

Look...find this place. Homemade soups, a great salad bar, pizza buffet and ice cream at the end. What more do you need. Yum, yum good! I will tell you this...that soup is worth the drive to get alone. Oh, this is a great find. Not sure how we missed this place. We live in Bradenton...moved here six months ago from Texas and trying out as many restaurants as possible to get to know the area and help others. This is by far a great value. Yes, it can been missed along the street on Cortez. But try to make it here and enjoy this great buffet. Staff is great! The chef/cooks...take real pride in the food they prepare from scratch. Give them the credit they deserve. Well done! So glad we found Fire and Stone and will take our visiting family, friends and new neighbors! Enjoy!

I ordered take out for friends. The crust was like eating raw dough. Will never eat their pizza again...The sauce was too sweet and the veggies we not fresh. Remember raw dough.
