In the past I dined here regularly but hadn't been in since the old chef left. I was afraid it would not be up to par and I was correct. The crab dip was served with a baguette that was barely warm. The overall presentation...More

Firestone’s is one of my favorite downtown stops! Sunday night was the exception, the crap dip was excellent but the two salads missed the mark big time! Someone needs to read the book, “how to make a Caesar salad”.......it was tasteless! When you grill cauliflower...More

We lucked out and got seated on the 2nd floor at the window overlooking Market Street. Great view over one of my favorite towns in the Mid-Atlantic region. Our server was a great guy and knew how to joke around, which is always a plus....More

We were visiting from out of town and made our reservations weeks in advance. We chose Firestone's based on many reviews, pictures of the restaurant, and a glance at the menu. We were seated within minutes. Our drinks, appetizers, and amuse bouche were all served...More

The menu and the wine list are exceptional and the food that followed cannot be faulted. The service was good and the wait staff exceptionally attentive and helpful. This was overall a most enjoyable experience and we would definitely return when back in the USA...More

This is a very good place to eat brunch on the weekend, lunch or dinner during the week. full bar with usual specials. Ask to eat upstairs for the best view.

Yes. That said be prepared to walk up the stairs, especially on the weekends. The first floor is a lot of the bar area. It can get a little loud after 8pm. But upstairs is quite and nice.

Firestone's Culinary Tavern, opened in 1999, is located in downtown Frederick's picturesque Historic District. It is housed in a 1921 building that was initially the home of Shipley's Department Store. The restaurant combines outstanding cuisine with the casual atmosphere of a neighborhood tavern. The Washington Post says, "the atmosphere is prime...the food is, too!".
