Our go to place when visiting the grandchildren. Seasonal items and happy hour selections are posted on a blackboard. These are always unique and yummy! All items have natural, fresh ingredients and are house made. Pizza is really good and there are gluten free options as well. We love the chopped and caesar salads (enough for everyone to share). Reasonably... More

The very friendly and helpful staff gave us tips, answered questions and let us sample beers at our first visit. We took a chance on a specialty pizza with pumpkin and kale (turned out to be just a little of each) and fontina. It was delicious. The crust is crisp but a little chewy and the toppings were not overwhelming.... More

I ordered an unfolded pesto chicken pizza. It was nice. That's the best I can say. The chicken was a little dry and at the end, I was left wanting. It's not cheap when you add a drink either. The super friendly service and quick serving increased the place in my estimations.

Oven fired pizzas come out fresh hot and fast. Staff is very friendly and attentive. House recipe pizzas are not run of the mill.

Good pizza at a reasonable price, wifey and I split a sausage pizza and shared a salad. A little noisy but that was due to how busy they are. Clearly a popular spot for locals in the area. We sat by the kitchen and the pizza makers were working feverishly to get those pies out to the customers. We will... More

I enjoyed my lunch here. Great pizza and friendly service, and I will botch the name, but I think it was Kirsten. I loved the crispy pepperoni with basil in it. I'll be back.

This was my first visit to a Pitfire Pizza. I had the Fired-Grilled Eggplant Pizza that was featured on their menu board. It was pretty good, though the olives made it saltier than I'd have liked. It was about 10" in size and was enough for me. I also had their Hibiscus Iced Tea, which was also pretty good. Yes,... More

These guys love to sell small overpriced pizza. Their minds will explode if you order a large pizza.
