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!".

Love the old architecture & layout with one of the coolest tin ceilings I've ever seen! Be sure to sit at one of the 2nd floor window seats for a fabulous view of old Frederick!

Very much appreciated the care given my food allergies. I loved that the Maryland crab zip came with slices of carrots and zucchini as dippers in addition to the bread. Much more diet friendly for those counting carbs! The Volcano pork shank was really amazing - presentation was great more importantly the flavors were spot on. Much more to explore on the menu so I will be back!

Delish food and great service as usual. Tonight (First Saturday) was way louder than usual and it was hard to hear conversation at our tabke, the only negative of the evening.

Firestone has the best French onion soup!! It's comparable to the soup I last had in Paris (which I didn't think could be beat). Service is outstanding. This was my second visit. All the meals I had were outstanding. will definitely return and recommend to others.

This is my/out favorite restaurant in Frederick, not only for ourselves, but a great place to meet friends from DC or Baltimore. Love sitting upstairs. Wonderful ambiance and terrific food. Right on the main drag for before or after shopping. Highly recommend.

Firestone's is one of our favorite places to dine. We discovered it a few years ago after attending a Frederick Keys baseball game. We love the old building and that the dining room overlooks the bar and lounge area on the first floor. Frequently, we get a window table and can people watch while having dinner.

As usual, our server this dinner was very attentive, but not pushy; she answered our questions about the menu and made several suggestions and recommendations. We both had appetizers, French Onion Soup and oysters on the half shell. My wife ordered the shrimp while I ordered the Wygua steak, which was cooked rare as I had requested.

We enjoyed the pace of our dinner, but we have begun ordering and receiving our appetizers before our entree; we do this regularly wherever we are dining. After a delicious dinner we did not have room for desert but that didn't prevent us from getting a piece of the Oreo cheesecake to take home.

All in all a very enjoyable dining experience and we would highly recommend Firestone's!

Everything was amazing, our server was knowledgeable and helped us pick out great drinks and knew what was gluten friendly for me. The duck breast was just delicious, the other people at our table had the scallops and gnocchi and both said it’s the best they’ve ever had.

O.M.G.! Why have I not been here before. Almost everything about our visit was top-notch. The drink menu was great; not too big or small. Apps were tasty; escargot and meat/cheese board. I seriously couldn't decide what to eat as the dinner menu was packed with so many good-looking dishes. I settled on the sweet potato gnocchi; I have NO words for this. So delicious. The dessert menu was good, but my chocolate dish was ok. My wife had the apple "cobbler" with maple brown sugar ice cream and it was fantastic. Restaurant is a little on the noisy side, but the meal silenced most of that! Will definitely be going back; new favorite in town!

This restaurant is wonderful. The service was amazing, we especially loved the gifts from the chef between courses. We enjoyed oysters on the half shell, delicious entrees and espresso martinis to finish our meal. The space is small but you don’t feel cramped. We had a corner of the restaurant on the top floor to ourselves so it felt very intimate even though the place was dull and bustling.

The steak and eggs here is kind of a joke. It is more Egg, and Potato’s with a few small pieces of steak. The quantity of steak that comes with this order says 4oz, but that is pushing it.

When my plate came out, the eggs and potato’s actually covered the steak, that’s how small the portion of meat was. Not worth the money by any means; especially when you can go to a bunch of other local places and have a higher quality cut of meat, more volume and the same cost.

Disappointing.

Four stars is really good from me - 5 stars only bestest meals I’ve ever had during my 46 winters on this planet. Firestone’s is a great place regardless. Diverse brunch menu with tasty twists on traditional American fare. Loved avocado toast and truffle fries for apps. Wife loved burger, son indulged on eggs benedict, and I really liked spicy tuna sandwich. Restaurant spacious, modern, and spotless. Service was outstanding. Will be back soon.
