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.

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
