I booked our Christmas get together for brunch here. We've had lunch and dinner here, but never breakfast. We had a very nice server and everything was going very well until the food arrived. Four people at the table ordered eggs Benedict and each one said their breakfast was cold. Three went back and one person decided to eat what... More

Took the family here because locals said it was the best in town. A large, warm, cozy old house was converted into a large, warm, cozy steakhouse. The tables by the fireplace, upstairs/ downstairs... all screamed New England. We did it up. Raw Bar App, wine, specials, steak standards, dessert, and after dinner drinks. The service was acceptable. The food... More

I had lunch here and was very pleased. The atmosphere is nice and very fitting for the age of Hingham where Scarlet Oak Tavern is located. The menu was extensive; something for all tastes. The food was great as well as the service. I would definitely return. I would also try it for dinner too.

This food is delicious but expensive. In the warmer weather there is a patio to sit out on and that is very nice for lunch. They have private rooms that you can arrange for larger parties.

My first visit to Scarlet Oak Tavern did not disappoint. The ambience hits you the moment you walk in - from the beautiful fireplace to the warm decor, the overall rustic feel is charming. We sat at the bar waiting for our reservation (we were early). I had a white cranberry martini (awesome), he had an extra dirty martini (I... More

We attended an anniversary party in one of the private rooms, and everything was extremely nice. Delicious food and tables were "dressed" with nice tablecloths, cloth napkins, etc. We decided to go there for my husband's birthday at lunch a few weeks later. I made reservations several days ahead and was glad that I did because it was crowded. This... More

I came to Scarlet Oak Tavern with some colleagues this week. We made the reservations on a whim through Open Table, and were all totally caught by surprise with how amazing everything was. It's in a beautiful building (maybe an old mansion or house of some kind), and the inside of the restaurant is just so warm and inviting. The... More

Looking for an upscale but cozy place to dine? Scarlet Oak has it all. A warm ambiance is offered by the wood burning fireplace in this charming, historic farmhouse. Sip your favorite wine from the long-stemmed glasses. The char-grilled steaks are outstanding. The fig and proscuitto wood grilled pizza is to die for! The maple apple bread pudding with bourbon...

I remember 70+ years ago eating here (it was called the "Toll House" then) every Mother's Day. The inside (and outside) looks much the same and there was a nice mix of families with children as well as adults. The atmosphere is charming, and the menu classic. Marvelous clam chowder, corn bread, lobster rolls, and on and on. The lobster... More

I like to get a nice, fast, but well-cooked meal from time to time. We've been to the Scarlet Oak a number of times, so we went back again the other night. My wife had Lobster and Scallop Rissotto -- very nicely done. I had the Filet Mignon with Asparagus the Corn Succotash. I purposely keep half of my meal... More
