I have to give this place credit for the food. It was delicious and plated uniquely. However, the acoustics in the restaurant are terrible. My husband and I sat upstairs towards the front of the restaurant on the side closest to the bar. We couldn't...More

They have excellent Hamburger and other good American food. Try to sit upstairs near the window. It's a good place also for families with kids.

The food was palatable (especially the salmon), the staff was very efficacious. The ambiance was a bit dense with noise as expected of a tavern's crowd. The window tables were that prize seating and must be booked precisely otherwise one gets that darker side at...More

Yes. That said be prepared to walk up the stairs, especially on the weekends. The first floor is a lot of the bar area. It can get a little loud after 8pm. But upstairs is quite and nice.

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!".
