Our family of 5 ate lunch here. The crab dip and calamari were some of the best we’ve ever had. We each had a different entree and they were all amazing. I’d highly recommend Firestone’s.

We went on a busy Sunday afternoon. The service good was despite the fact that our server had all twelve or so tables upstairs. The beer was good and so was some of the food. Nothing was outstanding and only the Shrimp Po Boy was not good. With so many very good options in downtown Frederick, I’m not sure I would return anytime soon.

I was expecting some delicious food after looking at the menu options. But I was disappointed with the lack of flavor. I ordered the pork belly and was expecting a slice of pork belly with crackling on top, but got thick bacon instead. It was ok, but not what I was expecting. I also had the short ribs which lacked any flavor at all. It looked amazing, but didn't taste great. The service was awesome though and it has great ambiance. Maybe some of the other items taste good, I would give it a go, but don't expect much.

Calamari was a bit salty but really good overall. The pastrami was okay but the cheesesteak sandwich was one of the best we’ve ever had. Service was professional and overall very attentive.

Everything was great, as usual, but we were put in the corner upstairs left of the stairs. We had a view of a blank wall on the other side of the table. Was just unfortunate placement of a table.

Firestones outdid themselves. From
The meal to the service, it was a wonderful night out during these challenging times. It was nice to do something normal but they also were diligent regarding safety protocol. We can’t wait to go back.

Firestones is one of our go to classics in Frederick. We love the food, atmosphere and the staff. Never any complaints when we ask to substitute or change dur to allergies. Just overall experience is great on every level.

We had a very nice anniversary dinner at Firestone's. Excellent service along with delicious food. So filling we took dessert with us and the macaroons were fantastic. A little noisy from the bar below but still a great evening overall to celebrate.

Brunch at Firestone's was amazing! They have the best cinnamon rolls I have ever had and their hashbrowns are seriously mouth-watering. The service was fast and the portions were perfect. This is my new favorite brunch spot!

We went for brunch for my daughter’s birthday. The cinnamon buns were out of this world! Coffee is always good at firestones!
The bloody Mary’s were ok. Not great. The Eggs Benedict delicious, but the breakfast sandwiches were underwhelming. Her boyfriend got a lunch sandwich - the Rachel- and says it was great! My older daughter got the grapefruit-infused cocktail and it was perfect.

Atmosphere and service excellent as always!!

This was my first visit to Firestone’s. The quality of the cooking in this restaurant-bar will surprise you— it’s really delicious and very attractively presented. The service was friendly and professional. The bar, as well as the interior of the place, are comfortably inviting. I will absolutely go back to Firestone’s. I hope normal times return soon so that the place will be packed upstairs, downstairs, and in the bar.

We arrived and were seated. Took quite a bit before we were first approached by a server. Which was the theme for the evening. Food was good, but seemed a bit overpriced. We sat upstairs which had a nice feel/view, but we were essentially in a pub with some fancy tables upstairs. Several other “pub-goers” would be heard shouting, but only twice? All in all not a bad place, but expected more.
