There was careful attention paid to masks, cleanliness, separation of tables. Food was great and our waiter was very good.

Brunch at Firestone's was amazing! They have the best cinnamon rolls I have ever had and their hashbrowns are seriously mouth-watering. The service was fast and the portions were perfect. This is my new favorite brunch spot!

Meal included a thin slice of Veal. It was over cooked and approached shoe leather. Everything else was excellent

a beautiful venue with some history attached. The food (lunch) was wonderful (hot pastrami and clam chowder - the best ever). Plenty of space of spread out.

We went for brunch for my daughter’s birthday. The cinnamon buns were out of this world! Coffee is always good at firestones!
The bloody Mary’s were ok. Not great. The Eggs Benedict delicious, but the breakfast sandwiches were underwhelming. Her boyfriend got a lunch sandwich - the Rachel- and says it was great! My older daughter got the grapefruit-infused cocktail and it was perfect.

Atmosphere and service excellent as always!!

This was my first visit to Firestone’s. The quality of the cooking in this restaurant-bar will surprise you— it’s really delicious and very attractively presented. The service was friendly and professional. The bar, as well as the interior of the place, are comfortably inviting. I will absolutely go back to Firestone’s. I hope normal times return soon so that the place will be packed upstairs, downstairs, and in the bar.

We arrived and were seated. Took quite a bit before we were first approached by a server. Which was the theme for the evening. Food was good, but seemed a bit overpriced. We sat upstairs which had a nice feel/view, but we were essentially in a pub with some fancy tables upstairs. Several other “pub-goers” would be heard shouting, but only twice? All in all not a bad place, but expected more.

The only reason for the 4/5 stars on ambiance is because of distancing measures I’m sure. We were kind of in a corner without windows, view over the bar, etc. Food, service, and everything else was top notch.

We ate outside which was really nice. The service was a bit slow but we weren’t in a hurry so we didn’t really mind. Food was very good, very tasty. Great people watching too!!! Hope they can keep doing the outside seating into the fall!!

My wife and I enjoyed lunch here. We made reservations and were seated promptly on our arrival. They had an excellent selection of high end Bourbon and other Spirits. Our server was pleasant and saw to our every need. Food was prepared quickly and was very good. We highly recommend this establishment.

Our first but definitely not last experience at Firestone. Wonderful brunch and Olivia was a GREAT server - allowed us to "visit" while also checking that we had everything we needed. She suggested to my gluten free friend that she get the pastrami "sandwich" without the bread and she was so pleased with it. Hope to return soon.

It was really good! Mushroom ravioli was excellent. Service was great, above and beyond, except I would ask our waiter to get all the coins out of his pocket. I could hear him jangling from a mile away! There’s a coin shortage, you know. Lmao. Had a great time, will be back! :)

We were just passing through Frederick on the way back to Baltimore and picked this spot looking online. We were so happy we did! Lots of creative items for a lovely late lunch! Rockfish Ceviche was a great starter as were our Flyjack beers! Would definitely make the trip back to try dinner.

Girls day of brunch first then off to a winery! Everyone enjoyed their food. We were a little concerned about the waiter wearing a face shield instead of a mask because he was next to the table right over us and our food and drinks!

There is no better time spent except through good food and good friends on this Labor-day weekend." Firestone’s has never let me down and this was no exception. The Wagyu Sirloin was cooked perfectly served with a potato Pave and Black Truffle Reduction. The service was great even with the restrictions.
