After 17 years in business, StoneFire Pizza Co. in New Berlin is shuttered permanently according to a post on the StoneFire Pizza Co website. A reason for the closing is not provided.


It is with great sadness and regret that after 17 years of serving the New Berlin/Milwaukee community we are closing our doors permanently.

We understand there are many parties and reservations still pending with deposits. Please contact and we will arrange to return any processed and collected deposits for future events.

We would like to thank you all for your continued support. You have made this a staple landmark for almost two decades. We wish you all a wonderful, safe and enjoyable future with tons of fun and great adventures.

StoneFire Pizza opened in 2006 and became a staple spot for family outings and birthday parties. It housed four rock walls, more than 150 games, "BalloCity" structure, Ninja Warrior Course, bumper cars, mini bowling, ropes course, hydraulic "Froghopper" ride, Skeeball, an inflatable jump yard and more.

It also had an extensive pizza menu, large salad bar and a full bar. 

Developer Carl Tomich bought the business in 2011 and sold it a decade later to former StoneFire Pizza Co. manager, Ted Cutting.

Guess it's back to Chuck E. Cheese we go.
