While visiting Bowdoin College, we were referred to Scarlet Begonias for dinner and we enjoyed it very much. Service was warm and efficient, the food was beautifully prepared from obviously fresh ingredients, and the pricing was reasonable. I recommend the local lemonade.

Pleasant and bright space, convenient to the train station and college, hospitable staff, but rather pricey for standard fare with nothing distinguishing to make it rise significantly above the usual pub menu. The plain, slim hamburger was local, clearly in the better taste, but not great value in size and with a scattering of ordinary chips and a super-thin pickle.... More

We tried the pizza for the first time, as in the past we've been in a rut with the wonderful Reuben Sandwich and the home-made soups. The pizza is as good as everything else, with a really strong herb presence. I ordered a reuben, and it was as good as ever. Very good corned beef, perfectly toasted bread, nice fresh... More

This is the place to go in town for a nice atmosphere and great food. They have their own unique take on Italian dishes. Go all out for the Hughes' dilemma: sausages, chicken and loads of garlic in red sauce over penne. Awesome! The sangria is superb. They have local beer and the wines change from time to time as...

I have been here a few times to eat and drink and each time has been exceptionally good. Always consistent with great portion sizes and courteous staff. Their pasta is to die for as well as their burger (notably, the Saber). Check them out. I choose this restaurant again and again!

Scarlet Begonias started as a cozy neighborhood place. Food was prepared in sight of diners, and was a good and tasty value. Moving to a larger location has created a monster--mediocre food with none of the charm of the original location. My last (and I do mean last) visit was a disgusting nightmare. I ordered a Caesar salad. When it... More

I always say takeout in Brunswick is limited for choice and quality, but whenever I get it from Scarlet Begonia ' s I'm happy. The nightly seafood options on pasta is usually what I go for, and my recent choice was a good one. Four grilled gulf shrimp on fettucine with capers tomato and shiitake mushrooms. The lemon garlic sauce... More

Awesome food. An unusual but delectable take on a tuna melt and seriously good grilled cheese and garlic bread.

We had a nice hearty dinner here. The food was heavy on the starch but delicious; we both had pasta dishes as that seemed to be the "thing." Yummy big meal with delicious tiramisu dessert. I wish the hostess had asked us which part of the restaurant we wanted to sit in. They have seats outside, nice seating inside and... More
