This is the 3rd year we have dined here for my husband's birthday - he always gets the 32oz porterhouse and loves it. Says it is perfect in every way. First - the rocky part. We had a reservation for 7 but got there early. Hostess gave us a "buzzer" and said she would be seating the 6.30 people first... More

Our children were at an event for a few hours and Open Table noted a table for two was available at Scarlet Oak Tavern. The restaurant was busy, however we were seated immediately and the great service continued throughout our meal. The appetizers were delicious and the steaks superb! The restaurant is a real gem on the South Shore.

We have enjoyed Sunday Brunch at Scarlet Oak quite a few times over the last four years and our latest visit just reinforced why this restaurant is our go-to place on the South Shore. The exterior of the tavern oozes New England charm and the feel continues in the pub and throughout the dining room with beautiful (if somewhat uneven)... More

First time here, stopped in for a late lunch on a Sunday. Loved the interior - old American tavern look and larger than it looks from outside. Service was good, the menu was varied and the food was very good. Anything baked - bread, desserts are a must try. They have their own baker and the produce wonderful stuff Only... More

Wonderful, old, historic building--has been either an inn or restaurant since forever; in Hingham's case that would be 1635 ( town of Hingham, not the Scarlet Oak!). Menu varied and food does not disappoint, but the bar is excellent--fun, great mixologists and bar/pub seating available with special bar snacks menu. Dining room service can be varied at times.

I recently attended a rehearsal dinner here, which was held upstairs in the big room off the bar. I didn't look around downstairs, but the space we were in was very nice. The place definitely has some curb appeal as well. The food was excellent. We had a set menu for the occasion: salad or chowder to start, choice of... More

With out any doubt - this is the best dinning experience. From the minute you walk in the front door, the history and ambiance of this unique structure is present. From farm to table, the fare is exceptional. Everything is made fresh on the premises - You won't be disappointed - Don't forget to ask Kenny (the manager) to tell... More

This was a late lunch on a Sunday afternoon. This restaurant is situated in a very old mansion. They've modernized the inside but kept the antique integrity, it's quite beautiful. It was really busy when we arrived and we had to wait quite a while before being served, not a good start. We waited with a glass of wine that... More

A family celebration- our first visit, we looked forward to great night....while awaiting the arrival of our party, we felt very pushed to order drinks despite explaining we had a reservation & would like to wait for all to arrive to do so. Seated in a very comfortable U shaped table, the waitress noted we had carried our drinks in... More
