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!".

The Foie Gras was phenomenal. I would definitely order it again. We had a lovely table by the front window upstairs. We had the Bone In Pork Chop and the Scallops. Service was outstanding and we enjoyed a visit from Chef Danny. Thank you Firestone for making my Husbands Fathers Day Dinner one to remember.

Excellent food and service, as always. Noise level a bit high, but given the design of the restaurant, it is to be expected. We will continue to dine at this great restaurant.

We have been here many times and always have had an excellent time. This last visit was no exception. Our server Alice was very professional and accommodating. Our orders were delivered to the table altogether and were correct. I had the bone in pork chop which was cooked perfectly along with the fava beans, scalloped potatoes, rhurbarb and charred broccoli rabe all in a savory prosciutto broth. The only
fault I had with my dish was that it was a bit on the salty side, this I attribute to the prosciutto broth. The Firestone is one of our favorite dining spots in Frederick.

It is definitely a place to try in Frederick! The food is good but the service that day seemed rushed. Overall a good place to eat. I will probably go again in a year or so. It is also close to everything down town. The environment is good and if you get to sit by the window upstairs te a treat. The interior has a nice design and has a pretty good bar. Food is a little pricey but it is good. I recommend getting the MD crab dip as en appetizer.

Great atmosphere, efficient service, got our order just right, perfect table with reservation. Seafood pasta is to die for- they also change their specials daily and print fresh menus so you don’t have to ask. In addition, prices on alcohol are very reasonable- while serving good quality drinks. I feel like sometimes restaurants overprice spirits and it’ not the case here. Will be back.

Overall our experience was disappointing. We had reservations and still had to wait 30 min to be seated. The noise was excessively loud with patrons yelling. We sat upstairs and still had trouble hearing each other. The food was good but the excessive noise level and long wait ruined the evening. If I am going to spend $100 for two people to eat, I want to at least be able to hear my guest.

My daughter recommended Firestone for brunch after her graduation from Hood. It was a great location & had a nice atmosphere. I had a hard time choosing since several options looked good. We had crab dip & some drinks to start. Several of us picked breakfast items & the rest sandwiches. I had the cucumber salad as my side & it was amazing. Reminded me of my grandmothers recipe but better! Thanks for helping us to have a great celebration!

I took my 90 year old Mom to Firestone’s for Mother’s Day. She loved it, ate her entire dinner, (which she never does in her continuing care facility) and even polished off most of her dessert! My appetizer (dinner for me), was equally delicious and we both enjoyed the service and the experience.

Overall a great place with good food and fine atmosphere especially if you sit upstairs. While my server did a pretty good job it did appear staff was running hard just to keep up. This makes things seem less than relaxing. 5 of 8 entrees were seafood.

Every part of the experience was great except for the very first impression, the hostess. I made a reservation for a window view, received confirmation and was told there isn't one available when we arrived. I stated that made the reservation for the window seat. We we're seated at a regular table. The worst was, there was a six seat table that my party of 3 could have sat at....at the window!!
Our server was playful, attentive and smiling. Food was better than I expected. I will be going back (I'm determined to get a window seat)!

Last minute decision to go to Firestone’s for my birthday-excellent, well paced service, seated us upstairs overlooking Market St., food was exceptional and they even let me choose any dessert on the house since it was a birthday celebration. Prices were higher than we had first expected but the quality of the meal and the excellent service made it very much worth while! Will definitely be back!

Haven’t been here in years since we moved away, but came back to enjoy dinner and then a show at Weinberg. Everything was wonderful! The ambiance, service, food...all were excellent! (My monk fish was one of the best meals I’ve had in years!) The only warning I would give to others is that it can get quite noisy. We didn’t mind it at all, but if you were looking for a quiet, romantic dinner, this may not be the place for you.

Usually we are not disappointed, but found the food lacking or not enjoyable. I was very disappointed in almost all of the menu items from appetizers to entrees. The seafood soup was almost inedible, the crab dip had no flavor and way too much mayonnaise, my seafood fettuccine was just okay (the seafood was not fresh) and my husband's dish (hanger steak) was nothing special. The only light at the end of the tunnel was the bread pudding dessert we ordered.
