Wow - the tempura soft shell crabs were lick your plate good!
If you love oysters, an great beer list, extensive spirits list and and amazing chef....do not go to Firestones. See yall at brunch Sunday
Hostess and waitress both very grumpy. There were only two tables. They need a lesson in customer service. I usually LOVE Firestones. Food is great. The table next to us felt the same way
Food was amazing. Very accommodating for food allergies. Gluten in my case. Have no complaints at all. Service was also great.
Excellent as always!
After 2 years and a vaccination, my friend and I thought that Firestones was better than ever! Excellent, flavorful food, great service, and reasonable prices. My only concern was that the masking policy seemed ambiguous, but we were spaced far enough from other tables for our comfort level.
Great setting for a nice lunch. Food and service were both excellent!
I've been dining at Firestone's for many years. I consider it the best restaurant in Frederick--at least it's my favorite, hands down. This evening, you could feel the pent up energy from the reopening throughout the two-story restaurant. The menu is eclectic; dishes are influenced from around the world. However, the cooking style is consistently US South/Southeast, which means buttery/creamy/salty. (Wear comfortable clothing.) Tonight, our party of three shared the rockfish ceviche appetizer, which was good. For entrees, we had the Arctic char, Mahi Mahi, and soft shell crab. All were very good if on the heavy side. The house-made bread (and chive butter) was excellent--challah-like. Lively atmosphere and our server, Kristopher--he's served us many times in the past--is one of the best servers anywhere. I highly recommend Firestone's Culinary Tavern. It's worth the drive (for us > 40 miles).
Excellent lunch! The Rockfish Ceviche is always fantastic!
We dine here a lot and leave happy every time.
Great food and service and really lively, loud atmosphere
Very good restaurant in downtown Frederick. Would have rated excellent, but the noise level made this more of a bar experience and not a fine dining experience. Food was excellent, appetizers of rockfish seviche and Fois Gras excellent. Steak entre was cooked to perfection and the Tempura battered soft shell crab over risotto was great. Good pours on drinks and service was excellent. Hard to talk over the noise.
Great food! Staff was fantastic!
Love having a seat by the window looking out over Market Street, enjoying the fabulous food and great wine at Firestone's.
We had an incredible dinner! It was actually one of the best meals I have ever had in Frederick! I highly recommend Firestone’s as it is my favorite restaurant in the area!
Our service was outstanding! The cocktails were delicious! The food exceptional and the chef samples and sorbet were extra touches that helped make our meal unforgettable. Definitely returning! Highly recommend!
The BLTA was delicious. The chicken sandwich serving was substantial and tasty. Our server was attentive but not intrusive. We will be back.
Fantastic food and the best place to have our first restaurant meal in 15 months.
We had a lovely experience for our anniversary at Firestones. We requested a seat by the window which we got, and the food was amazing 😊
Loved my dish, had the scallops. Portion size was perfect!
The beer list is extensive.
The oysters, cheese board and crab dip were tasty.
The Wagyu sirloin was perfectly seasoned and prepared.
The homemade cantaloupe sorbet and coffee ice cream were divine. The custom “downtown Frederick” mug was the perfect compliment to my after dinner coffee.
Wait service was excellent. Food service was a tad slow.
Brunch - really enjoyed it. My first time
Always a great meal!!
We had a birthday lunch for my husband we both had egg dishes and the eggs were cooked to perfection. I had the chicken and eggs and really could recommend it. The chicken is fired over biscuits and then topped by 2 sunnyside-up eggs. The bloody Mary's were good.
we enjoyed our meal and great seat at Firestones, the food was very good, not exceptional. It was at the right quality for the price. The environment was VERY loud, it was tolerable as it was just two of us, but if we were out with friends it would have been difficult to talk.
Everything was great! They seem understaffed as we had to wait a while before our waitress came over, but once she did, she was great!
Food is amazing there!
Everything’s was fantastic. We requested to eat outside, which was great, although the noise from the traffic cruising up the street could get loud at times.
Good attentive but not intrusive service. Good food and Cocktails. Would come again.
We had a great evening. We sat at the window table on the street and we could see all the life bustling outside while enjoying our conversation. Ian was our server and we really enjoyed his presence as well as our dinner.
For quite some time, I walked past Firestone's, assuming it was a pub. Didn't even check the menu. A friend from VA was coming to town. As I sometimes do, I asked my guest to pick the spot for dinner. Firestone's was the pick. WOW! From the moment we arrived, the joy and excellence of this place was almost relentless. We sat at a table upstairs overlooking the street. First? This place is a feast for the eyes. It's fun to look around.
So that's cool right? Of course. Then we met Claire (sp?) she filled our water glasses. Later she would talk to my friend about the menu. Super fun, knowledgeable. Consider my friend and I to be members of Claire's fan club!
Then the menu. I adore folks that include venison in their menu. All kinds of other things sounded great. And they had something else that I enjoy. Wine made with Tempranillo grapes. Cocktails that sounded tasty as well.
Then we met Chris. This dude has his game DOWN! Delightfully intuitive, yet completely unfussy service. Funny as hell to boot. He fielded questions, told jokes, and really seemed like he was enjoying what he was doing. Having a great meal served by someone who is happy and funny is a great treat.
We started out with a charcuterie board and cocktails. Yum! We could have stopped there, that board could be considered a meal in and of itself. We lingered on this, trying all kinds of combinations of what was on the board. All smiles!
Then dinner... oh my good god damn! Venison on my side of the table. My friend had the tips. We kept smiling at each other and making sounds of pleasure. Chris would pop by and make sure everything was up to par. It was! Chris was part of our meal. He was knowledge and entertainment. The food was awesome. Chris was a delightful compliment to very good food.
Then dessert. OMG! Three hours later, we left. Well fed, smiles on our faces! Thanks for a delightful experience. Y'all got it nailed!
Wonderful meal, very special I taste and overall presentation!
Tables are socially distances and the staff was Uber accommodating!
Great, friendly service. Excellent Oysters. We love eating outside here, always pleased with the menu options. Please add spindrift nonalcoholic seltzer waters to your menu! Excellent Food. Foie Gras is great too.
Excellent food, good service, and nice decor. Noise level with the bar and open balcony very loud. Would have preferred the noise level much lower for fine dining.
The venison and beef were hard and chewy. Both were low quality cuts of meat. The duck and fish were great.
Very romantic and high quality restaurant. We really enjoyed the food.
The staff was very friendly and made this a very nice Mother’s Day brunch
We celebrated Mother’s Day with brunch. Firestones brunch is always a great experience. The food and service are great. Although some of the menu items were what I would consider to be “heavy” for brunch in May, all of our party loved the food. I hope live jazz can come back soon!
Noisy experience. We couldn’t have a conversation - at all. But the service and food were excellent.
