We met family here and had another great meal. The stuffed mushrooms were very good. We have also had the "favorite dick" pizza a couple of times and it was great. We were there on a Sunday at 5 and it was not as bust as the Friday or Saturday nights.

This a one of a kind pizza joint in Iowa. The place is decorated with anything and everything you could imagine. There's a fire in the middle to keep the place warm. A black lab wonders around. Good selection of beer and wine. The pizzas are great and they are not your normal cheese, pepperoni, and sausage.

We were a little apprehensive at first as it looked like it would be filled with young partiers but that wasn't the case. Decor is very eclectic and everywhere there is something new to see. The live music was great. Service was a little slow but not enough to complain about. The servers were all very friendly.The food was fantastic!... More

We loved it. First the décor is all right out of the 60's with album covers lining the ceiling. Album cover menus, a flower child server. The main attraction was the crispy wood fired pizza. Best sausage ever on a pizza, fresh ingredients. Jalapeños appetizer was amazing with bacon and melted cheese. Beers on tap. Town is small Midwestern Iowa... More

Wrote a positive review when I went in July, but I sent a good friend in August. She paid by credit card and when asked, said she did not need a receipt. She left an $8.50 tip but when it came back on her credit card history, the tip had been changed from $8.50 to $85.00. She called and was... More

Its unique experience. They have funky decor. Pizzas are good. Appetizer - very average. but overall i liked the people. They messed our order up ( gaves us chicken inspite of ordering veg pizza). They were kind enough of recognize their error and made another fresh pizza ( very short wait) on the house!

Our last trip to Bombfire was mid-winter with seating by the door and too many diners to enjoy our experience. This visit was so much better - both for atmosphere and the quality of food. We came with a large group of 9, but that wasn't a problem. If you are looking for a little heat to start, order the... More

On an island in the Mississippi lies a spot unlike any other in the Midwest! Bombfire has the best wood fire thin crust pizza! We had the portabella with jalapeños and it was amazing! Memorabilia fill the place inside and out. Tom and his family are all onsite and make you fill right at home!
