Not our first rodeo

First, the retro fit restaurant into a classic New England home was well done and very quaint. However, for the money, it was ho-hum.

Having eaten at one of their other restaurants many times, I expected the same quality of food and service here. That did not happen. The service was okay, not good not bad, just okay. We had a calamari appetizer that was as just plain bland. Bad start. The entrees came out and all four of had steaks that were perfectly... More

My average rating is more about the overall dining experience as a whole and not the quality of the food I received. I had a 10oz filet minon with sautéed spinach and a baked potato. The steak was cooked perfectly and tasted pretty good, but I've had better at a cheaper price. The portions of the sides are really small.... More

this is a highly recommended restaurant in town, and my family has been several times. We ate in the bar area, which had a really great vibe and a cozy warm fire. The worst part of the evening was that the service was extremely slow, from the first drink, to the silverware, to the bill. I was also disappointed that... More

The night we went in, it was particularly busy. But we always try to get a table in the tavern -- and it is usually quick. We almost always get the same thing -- I get a few oyster for an appetizer -- The ones that night were fantastically sweet and wonderful. Then we move on to Filets Mignon and... More

Arrived around 5:30...already very crowdwd. We only wanted to sit in the pub. Luckily one from our group had arrived early so we could sit right away. I had the portobello sandwich which was delicious. Friends had the Angus burger and the steak tips. Both equally delicious. Service was good, atmosphere was friendly, but very noisy. I'm not familiar with... More

Wow - Christmastime at the Scarlet Oak - top of the line steak - scallops - haddock - salad - mussels - potatoes; the only item not to make the top of the line list: broccoli. Great service and a warm atmosphere - can't wait to go back in the New Year.

Nice place, colonial charm, great spacious bar, nice main dining room and very good food. Never was disappointed here whether busy or not the staff is top notch. Always a stop when I am in the area. Also has a small private room for about 15; for a business or family/friends get together.
