Fire pits are the ultimate gathering spots for a reason: They're warm, cozy and oh-so inviting. And we're loving the latest trend of fire tables that add extra surface area to your fire pit for setting drinks and food or propping up your feet. Additionally, some fire tables have lids to create a solid surface for extra serving or dining space.
How to Choose the Best Fire Table
Start by looking at your outdoor space to figure out which size and shape will work best. Fire tables come in any shape (round, square, rectangular) and size. While bigger fire pits will create more square footage of heat, keep in mind the all-important heat output.
When it comes to the heat source for your fire table, select from gas (either propane or natural) or wood-burning.
The fuel source for wood-burning fire tables is, you guessed it: wood. Hardwoods such as oak, ash, hickory and walnut burn hotter than softwoods. When you throw a few extra logs on the fire, your heat output naturally increases. For the cleanest burn (i.e. less smoky), opt for kiln-dried firewood.
Natural gas fire tables are hooked up to gas lines and fueled by your utility company. It's the most permanent fuel source and requires professional installation.
Propane fire tables are typically powered by a 20-pound propane tank, which is easy to light and extinguish with a simple turn of a knob. The propane tank is either hidden inside the fire pit or connects to a line separately. When you need to refill or replace your propane tank, head to your local hardware or grocery store — they'll have you covered. While propane tends to be much more expensive than natural gas, it burns more efficiently. Not to mention, propane fire pits are customarily simpler to install.
You don't sacrifice warmth with gas fire tables. Each is rated with a heat output that's measured in BTUs (British Thermal Units). The higher the BTU, the more heat your fire table will produce. Most gas fire tables range from 30,000 to 60,000 BTUs, though they can go up to 100,000 BTUs.
When it comes to wood-burning fire tables, the heat output does depend a bit more on the size of the fire pit, as well as the type of wood you use.
Most Versatile Fire Table
Because sometimes you need a piece that does it all. This multifunctional fire table serves as a fire pit, grill, ice bucket and solid tabletop. Made from durable iron, the table is ready to handle your everyday and party needs. Gather around the cozy fire, fill the bowl with charcoal for a quick hot dog dinner, add ice to keep drinks cold or simply use it as a dining table.
Best Fire Table for Small Spaces
This 28-inch square fire table is ideal for any petite outdoor spot. The durable steel design has the look of rattan and is covered with rust-proof paint to weather any conditions. Easily store and switch out the propane tank underneath to enjoy a warm fire that reaches up to 50,000 BTU. When not in use, simply place the lid over the fire pit area for a solid table surface.
Best Dining Fire Table
No centerpiece is needed when you have a gorgeous fire pit in the center of your dining table. The natural ash wood base of the Elementi Fire Dining Table is clad in a cast concrete top for a rustic-meets-industrial aesthetic that'll be a showstopper at your next dinner party.

Made of a glass fiber-reinforced concrete frame, this contemporary fire table is a true centerpiece to your backyard. With an easy push-button spark ignition and a tank that holds 20 pounds of fuel, you can have a roaring fire going in mere seconds. A weather-resistant gray sealant keeps the piece protected from changing seasons.
Best Teak Fire Table
Teak is a top material for outdoor use because its natural oils repel water, keeping your furniture from cracking or warping with weather changes. This chic fire table makes for the perfect gathering space with plenty of room to lay out a spread of appetizers and drinks while your group enjoys the fire. Choose from propane/natural gas or an ethanol fuel source.
Best Lightweight Fire Table
Durability doesn't have to equal uber-heavy. This lightweight table is crafted from powder-coated aluminum, giving it sturdiness without the weight. It clocks in at only 57 pounds — almost half the weight of any other table on this list. With 50,000 BTU and an adjustable flame, you can create the exact atmosphere you want, and a matching lid turns the fire pit into a solid tabletop for everyday use.
Best Glass Top Fire Table
For a sleek, modern look, the Endless Summer Glass Top Fire Pit combines a glass top with colored glass rocks. Ideal for small spaces, the table has a push-button ignition for a hassle-free start and keeps the propane tank hidden behind stylish steel panels.

Best Propane Fire Table
Fire pits that double as furniture instantly maximize the functionality of your outdoor space. This linear all-weather resin wicker table features a central fire pit on a bed of glass rocks surrounded by a black tempered glass tabletop.

Best Natural Gas Fire Table
If you already have the utility lines for natural gas, this is your fire table. Crafted from durable cast concrete, the heavyweight fire table will be the highlight of your seating area. In addition to being a little more affordable than propane, natural gas also gives you the benefit of not having to refill tanks. Love this design but don't have the utility lines? No worries. It's also available with a propane option.
Best Concrete Fire Table
Available in a natural concrete or charcoal finish, this minimalist fire table accommodates both propane and natural gas. Lava rock filler adds a chic contrast and texture, and the flame ignites with the push of a button.
