This was our first time at a Coal Fire. A coworker of mine had recommended I go here and I never have until now. I am glad we remembered it was there at Waugh Chapel. PRO: We really LOVED our meal. We got the calamari appetizer that was mixed with jalapenos and sweet peppers. The mix of flavors was such... More

The pizza here is quite good with choices of different flavor sauces. Other fooed choices are available but we always stick with the pizza.

I had to get a separate pizza, because I don't like the sweet tomato sauce that is favored by my relatives. I did like the Margarita pizza I ordered. I did have enough left for lunch the next day. I tend to like pizza with multiple toppings that cost too much there.

Absolutely love the pizza here. We always get a large spicy margarita pizza and a field greens salad when dining in or out. Service has always been great and fast. They are on the higher side of pricing but, well worth it. Also, a military friendly establishment.

The food was good but the server was adequate. Employees need to be engaging and informational. We experienced a waitress that was not happy that we wanted to know more about the concept since we had never been before. The hostess was not readily available and we had to wait to be seated and then we were seated at a... More

To say that the pizza at Coalfire is good is am understatement. It is probably the best pizza I have ever tasted. The crust is thin and crispy. The signature sauce is a tiny bit sweet, a tiny bit spicy. Don't order too many toppings. I love everything pizza, but if you do that here, you won't like the results.... More

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
