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!".

Firestone’s is a lovely restaurant with exceptional ambiance. The food selection is excellent and everything is well-prepared. Make sure that you reserve a table by the window because it is nice to people-watch.

Great except I was not aware that this place became a “hang out bar” for 20somethings. Surprised me a bit. Losing a little class in my opinion.

Overall a great experience. With 6 of us they honored my request to be seated upstairs next to the window. Service was impeccable, water glasses were filled regularly and dishes were removed promptly. Food was outstanding (we did have a burger overcooked however they re-made it perfectly).
We will return.

Baked oysters and deviled eggs for apps; Crabcake, Seared Scallops, and Short Ribs for entrees; bread pudding dessert - all superb. Top notch service from Chris Kiefert. A perfect evening with out-of-town guests.

Firestone's gave us a wonderful holiday dinner! Chloe accommodated our seating requests and the whole staff made the meal special! Some of us had entrees; others sandwiches but all ages - 25 to 90 - enjoyed the meal.

This place is fantastic!! We just moved to Frederick and have taken family to Firestone’s twice. Everyone loved the food, the wait staff is attentive, helpful an willing to share their favorites and the atmosphere is warm, friendly and comfortable. The seasonal drink specials were a hit and the prices moderate. We will be back as happily recommend Firestone’s to everyone!

Service was a 10! We started with drinks (a mock tail and a hot and dirty martini) the mocktail was delicious the hot and dirty had sirachi in it which didn’t mix well. Then we got crab dip which was fantastic. For our entrees we got the pork shank and New York strip. The pork shank was one of the best entrees I’ve ever had at a restaurant, the New York strip I was not a fan of it didn’t have any flavor. Then we had homemade ice cream for dessert that was incredible. The chef also brought out a tomato soup and palate cleanser that was a cucumber lime mint (my guess) that was out of this world. My husband asked if we could get another after our entree and they brought an entire bowl out! Overall we will 100% be back it was such a nice date night. The ambiance is beautiful and fun!

It was super loud because the dining area is above the bar and is not buffered at all. I had a hard time communicating with my date, and it was not what I was expecting. Loved the food, but noise really took away from the whole experience. Would consider going back when the bar was s little less crowded, but not sure how I could determine this in advance. I Thought that others planning a dinner should know considering the price point of the menu. Thank you

We were seated later than our reservation time. majority of entres were good. desserts were bad. appetizers average for instance calamari was fried but not crispy and siracha fries were somewhat soggy. Ambiance was festive and energetic.

The food and the service were amazing! We made a reservation and the table was ready for us when we arrived. The only issue was the noise level was incredibly loud. We went on a Friday night and my husband and I could barely hear each other - and we were sitting upstairs. I completely recommend this place - but I recommend going at a time that it isn't packed.

We both had the chef’s sampler and a featured wine, which together was one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. I believe it was 7 courses and each came at the perfect time. I left full (but not in pain), satisfied, and I cant wait to come back!

Appetizers were good - but the crab cake was horrible. Such a strange combination to put with a crabcake. Avocado puree and turnips? Uh, just no - don't do it.

Great place for friends to gather. There were six of us, and everyone enjoyed their food. Some had duck, others had steaks, one had a salad, and one had, I think, a sandwich. Service was excellent.

I wouldn't pick this place for a romantic evening, but we loved energy & feel for the place. Great server and the food was so good. We had the mussels starter, scallops & seafood pasta for entrees.
