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.

We took our 13 year old grandson because he wanted a delicious and fancy meal. The atmosphere was comfortable. The staff were quick and attentive. The bread and butter set the tone of a memorable meal. And the Happy Birthday dessert was so perfect. I had fried green tomatoes.
The best I have ever had at a restaurant.

We started with a grilled calamari salad, calamari was tough and rubbery. The salad itself and dressing was quite good. Ordered the tuna listed as seared rare. Tuna came out sliced, first few pieces were done medium rare, the end pieces were completely well done. My request to substitute a side were no issue. My husband's scallops in ramen broth were very good. Overall I was disappointed since the food has been so much better on previous visits

Met friends and ate outside. Nice day but busy street with the occasional yahoo revving engines as the drove past. Fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese was outstanding. Excellent briny oysters. Best oyster po’boy I’ve eaten. Husband and friend each had the BLTA (a for avocado) and loved them. Other friend though his Cubano was great. We shared a deconstructed peach and cherry cobbler and agreed we prefer the classic version better. Definitely a great place. Good beer options. Great service and adhering to Covid rules of engagement including masks. Sitting on the street does pose small risk with some yahoo’s NOT wearing masks as they walked pretty close by.
