Enjoyed the atmosphere and food. Sat upstairs near the window and looked over Frederick decked out for Christmas, watched carolers sing, and enjoyed wine and good food. Will go back.

In the past I dined here regularly but hadn't been in since the old chef left. I was afraid it would not be up to par and I was correct. The crab dip was served with a baguette that was barely warm. The overall presentation...More

We lucked out and got seated on the 2nd floor at the window overlooking Market Street. Great view over one of my favorite towns in the Mid-Atlantic region. Our server was a great guy and knew how to joke around, which is always a plus....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!".
