Description: 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!".

“Wonderful Find- Farm to Table”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We love to support farm to table dining, and have been very pleased that Frederick has so many of them. Firestone's was the next one on the list after Volt, Wine Kitchen, and Family Meal, which were all good.

Firestone's has taken over the location from an old pub. The place is very warm, and pub-like, but upscale. We sat upstairs by the windows and enjoyed watching the street life while we dined. Food was excellent. We didn't order much as we were attempting to try a few other eating experiences while we were there (ice cream, chocolates, and cupcakes). So, consequently, we ended up splitting a lunch. We had the corned beef sandwich, which is made from local meat and smoked in-house. All their food is made from scratch and they use local ingredients as much as possible. We loved the sandwich, it's amazing mustard sauce, the tasty bread it was on, and the cucumber salad that come with it. Delicious!
Highly recommend them! We'll be going back for a bigger meal next time.

“Fabulous Food--Fabulous Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary. The moment we walked in the door, we were greeted with "Happy Anniversary". We were given a table on the second floor by the window that looks down on Market Street. One of our favorite locations. Our food was served hot and was delicious. The service was extraordinary--from appetizer to dessert. We had the rockfish and short ribs. Both were prepared perfectly.
Make reservations.

“Worth going for the Pastrami”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Some of the best pastrami I've had- thick cut but very tender. Also moist and not overpowered by peppercorns or coriander. Just enough Swiss cheese to add a mellow hint and a mustard that added to the meat flavor. Bread was sourdough but did not detract from the main event. My side was Vidalia onion rings which were served right from the fryer (very hot), but the breading was a too much and too sweet. Also, not enough onion taste to matter; save the Vidalias for something else. My wife got the fried oyster sandwich. Oysters were over breaded, but the attention to quality of lettuce & tomato served with it is noteworthy. Cuccumber/onion salad as a side was limp and we should have been told about the hot peppers in it. Did I mention you should get the pastrami?

“Great food an atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

What a lovely gem in the middle of Frederick! Particularly great margaritas. The wait staff is excellent and so has everything we orderd. I have been there several times. Wonderful lively atmosphere. Tables up stairs have a great view of Market Street. The menu has a good variety of offerings. Make reservation on the weekend for sure !
