Great food, but crowded and loud

I've been to Scarlet Oak numerous times and have always loved sitting in the bar area. My husband brought me last night for my birthday dinner and we sat in the dining area because he wanted me to have the fine dining experience. The service and food was great, but if you're looking for a fine... read more

Have gone to Scarlet Oak a number of times and always have fun and a good meal. The bar area is nice and cozy and is great with the fire going. The dining room is standard but the food is good. Very happy with this place. Hip New England charm.

I have dined at the Scarlet Oak many times, and the food is usually good. The atmosphere in the restaurant is nice and the service is typically very good. I once had a less than acceptable meal at the bar but most of the time the food is good. The bar scene seems to have become quite popular with people... More

Was here on a last minute trip to the area. Dining room is lovely and the food was delicious. Restaurant was crowded but did not feel that way. My husband had the hanger steak frites which was very tasty. I had a swordfish special from farm to table. It was delicious. The quantity was good and if I had to... More

This is a pretty nice space, very bright and modern for a Tavern. We had great service at the bar and it was jammed for a Monday night. We were disappointed that there were no Prime steaks on the menu and opted for the seafood dishes. The antipasti had a great pea hummus that would be good on just about... More

Scarlet Oak Tavern is one of the finest restaurants I've been to in all of Massachusetts! My family was having a birthday gathering and chose the Scarlet Oak. This was the first time I'd been and I was so impressed!! Our host couldn't have been more accommodating, the food was outstanding, and the service was of the highest order. Our... More

Not my first review for this restaurant, but after attending an anniversary celebration for a large group here recently, I have to say -once again - that consistently great steaks, seafood, table & bar service in a warm ambiance deserve a 'thumbs up'! This restaurant/ tavern/ bar area offers something for everyone to enjoy. We were there on a busy... More
