great food

The food was delicious, the atmosphere was quiet and peaceful. We went with another couple and it was a more adult restaurant, didn't seem like it'd be very child friendly. The drinks were fantastic, I got a sangria and others all got different things with the same reports of them being... read more

We have been several times as a family and have hosted many celebrations here with friends, too. Always on point with food and service. The steaks are always cooked to perfection and the "garlicky" shrimp served in a mini cast iron skillet is delicious.

Love the atmosphere. My wife and I go to bar early and start with a delicious shellfish platter. Bar staff is very attentive and friendly. Really like the menu but usually get the ribeye. Place is always busy for a reason. Make a reservation.

We had a party of six which were easily accommodated. The restaurant was rather crowded that evening, but we received very good service. Our appetizers were hot, and our meals were very good. We all found the portions to be a bit on the smaller side for the price,however, we enjoyed them anyway. I have been there several times and... More

Scarlet Oak Tavern is our favorite restaurant to go to when celebrating special occasions. We just went on 8/1/15 for a birthday dinner for my husband. We both had filet mignon and it was high quality as expected. Ryan was our server and did a nice job. Andrew, the manager that evening, made sure that the birthday dinner was a... More

We've been here many times & the Scarlet Oak is always busy, but for each visit during the week we have been seated promptly. On weekends be sure to call for reservations. The parking area is ample, but it can fill up. Guests have a choice of seating in the dining room, bar/tavern/lounge, or outside. Private Rooms are available. I... More

May be my favorite spot on the south shore. Love eating near the fireplace in the winter and the outdoor seating in the summer. Though it isn't a steakhouse I have to say their bone in ribeye rivals any I have had in Boston. One request, put the chorizo stuffing back on the menu!!!

Almost always busy. nice atmosphere and decor. Comfortable. Big bar that is usually full. Nice outdoor patio that they have live acoustical music in good weather. Food is good; quality ingredients, mix of flavors and textures. They make sure it is done right or they fix it immediately. I love that attitude about what they serve. Service is good and... More
