Great feel when you walk in the door to a large open room with the bar area being featured. Great location for lunch, dinner or just a place to have a cocktail with friends

Nice atmosphere. Been here a few times. the food was okay but not great for the money. I would probably not go back for dinner.

We recently decided to go to the Scarlet Oak Tavern to celebrate Father's Day. We changed the amount of people in our party about five times and each time we called, we spoke to very pleasant staff. We ended up with nine people in our party. Most of the people in our party ordered steak. We did get the shrimp... More

Very busy Restaurant. Hostess and waitress greeted us with smile. Menu was limited and the portions were small for the price. Food was average. Not close to where I live, so I won't be going back.

We often get take out here and we also eat in. I just brought my elderly parents here for lunch. They enjoyed it. It is easy to maneuver a wheelchair into the dining room. Great service, diverse menu and I think they have a good wine list. Their flatbreads are awesome as well as the lobster roll. The pickles that... More

I've eaten here a few times and have been really pleased. The atmosphere is always great, and the staff is friendly and handles food allergies terrific. But last night the kitchen was having a bad night. Our steaks were way over salted and were charred rather than being seared. The salad was a bit wilted and over dressed. It's not... More

Scarlet Oak used to be one of our favorite places for dinner in Hingham. I remember the first meal we had there years ago was perfection from beginning to end, and we've returned many times but it has increasingly become consistently disappointing. We've noticed lately (and friends have confirmed) that it's getting hard to have a really good experience here.... More

My husband and I dined at the Scarlett Oak and while the food was wonderful as was the service, the atmosphere and other diners were absolutely pretentious! Many of the people in the crowded restaurant were very loud as they discussed what
