I think it was awesome. I had so much fun with friends.The food was good.I cant wait to tell my girl scout leader. I think they would love it. But the prices were very high. And it is a great place to have fun. And could cheer anyone up.

Pros: GREAT PIZZA

Cons: None

.

Stone Fire Pizza Co is an interesting new place. Fundamentally an all-you-can-eat pizza buffet, games, a climbing wall, bumper cars, and a nerf-ball shooting area are all available as well. Most of the games are pay-to-play, but an area for toddlers and young children offers a face-painting area, water play, toy trains, building blocks, and some slides and tubes as well.

The pizza at Stone Fire started out tasting like cardboard, but has generally improved over time. There are still lots of better pizza places, but at least now you can usually tell what the pizza is supposed to be. The buffet contains a lot more than just pizza, however, including a very thorough (and fresh!) salad bar, very good soups, some pastas, and a stir-fry bar that actually started out rather spicy (yum!) but has become more bland over time. One of the few places that you can bring both adults and kids to and have everyone find something edible.

Stone Fire seems committed to trying to be a lot of things to a lot of people, and for a local startup, it's pretty amazing. They offer free wifi, hoping to attract the business crowd for lunch and meetings, and when their wifi was awful, they replaced it with something better, which still didn't work perfectly, but it seems to be improving with time. They replaced their traditional soft-serve machine with Edy's ice cream dispensers, which was (sadly) a major step backwards, since the Edy's machines were forever doing odd things, like not working, or shooting ice cream out at mach speed. This hasn't deterred them, and over a period of months where it wasn't working, they persevered and it has been working perfectly for recent visits.

They have a definite desire to please, something that is missing at too many establishments these days.

Sadly, I have to criticize them a little bit on the maintenance front. What makes a place like Stone Fire special to kids are the extras and the unusual things. Stone Fire did something really unusual - their tube climbing area has a tube which actually extends outside into a windowed ball, which was really unique and unusual. Unfortunately, they closed it off when the plastic window got cracked, and never bothered to fix it. Similarly, in their Ballocity play area, they've got a great variety of air-powered ball shooters, but a lot of them are out of order at any given time.

Update, 04/2009

They've removed the iconic outdoor tube. The face painting area has two crayons. Most of the railroad cars are missing. The tables on either side of me (I'm at SF right now) have been unoccupied, with dirty dishes piled high, for 45 minutes. The paper towels in the toddler area are out. They're confiscating the business lunch cards they used to hand out. The Edy's machine has been replaced with a regular ice cream machine, and it's been turned around so that a staffer must dispense ice cream, except there are no staffers to be found. They also stuck the Slushy machines back there. The ice cream toppings are mostly gone, the cookies are entirely gone, and they've replaced it with a bunch of jello. The asian and pasta portions of the buffet look overcooked and like they've been sitting there a while. The kids section has been expanded a bit. There are fewer pizzas out and they appear to have less willingness to ditch pizza that's been sitting out too long. The salad bar has been reduced to just the basics as well. Their chicken tortilla soup and some other good things are just gone. The "Stonefire Chili" they replaced it with, not so good. They do have a few pizzas we'd never seen before, one that was pretty good (Spicy Italian). Someone just bussed the tables, it's been over an hour.

Overall, very disappointing change of direction for what was once an upscale pizza buffet.

You pay to eat, reasonable and delicious salad bar/pizza bar in three different themed rooms. Afterward you play games. This can get pricey, but the value you get compared to Chuck E. Cheese makes this worthwhile.
