Atmosphere a plus in a vintage building. The cowboy steak was to die for. Notable wine selection and excellent cocktails. Ask for a balcony seat and definitely make a reservation.

Seated upstairs over looking Market Street. Well made Bloody Mary. Raw oysters were excellent as was the crab dip. Salad w/ grilled chicken was good, a bit tough and server honored a request to substitute blue cheese for goat cheese. House salad very good.

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

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!".
