Their Margarita and Rustic Red pizzas are our favorite! We've been going there for years. It isn't very close to home, but is worth the drive.

We've been going to Coal Fire at least monthly for the past few years. We love the pizza -- thin crust with a well-seasoned sauce (we like the classic) and just the right amount of topping and cheese. Service is great and the happy hour specials are an excellent deal -- 1/2 price 12" pizzas plus discounts on wine and... More

Stopped in for a quick Sunday lunch with my husband. We ordered and appetizer, pizza and pasta dish. Everything was very good and bought out in a timely fashion and not all at once which I hate. We also took advantage of the "Sunday Funday" drink specials. We stayed and watched the Ravens game until half time. Nice crowd, friendly... More

This place is so good they catered my son's wedding! But walking back 1 block from Main Street after too much shopping is this oasis of fun and food. Order a pizza or two (or more), find a table or spot on the lawn, smell it baking in the outdoor brick oven, enjoy kicking back and enjoying the perfect thin-crust... More

This is my favorite pizza in the states. Tastes like what you get in Italy. Prices are good and there is other stuff too. The grilled ceasar salad is AWESOME. Beware, the spicy pizza sauce is pretty spicy.

One of our favorite places to eat pizza. We like the classic sauce with italian sausage. Kids can watch pizza being made at a glass observation area too.

I visit this restaurant several times a year, especially through the summer in order to sit on the outside terrace. Over the years, the coal-fired pizza has been consistently excellent. It is thin enough to be a lighter eat, yet I can flavor the dough. The ingredients (meats, veggies, etc.) are always fresh and flavorful. The terrace overlooks an open... More
