Best burger in Brunswick! We go here often, just for an amazing burger. Great wine and beer options, fast and efficient service!

Good food nothing great but nothing bad. I had pasta there was more then enough. I also had coffee after dinner not so good. Seemed like it was a little old. Really that was the only thing I can say bad.

Good choice if you're going to see a show at Bowdoin. It's just around the corner. They have tables outside and inside. The menu is sufficiently large so that everyone can find something they like -- pizza, burgers, sandwiches, soups, pasta. The grilled cheese with tomatoes and bacon on sourdough hit the spot. Good beer selection. Prices are quite reasonable.... More

First and last visit to this place. The decor is quite bizarre. It looks like each wall was decorated by someone else. All holidays are represented with trashy glitz. Beach balls, inflatable baseballs, flags, Christmas lights, historic magazines in frames along with farming and 4H photos. The grilled shrimp skewer special was too salty and sour to eat. The waitress... More

The restaurant is well appointed and the menu is quite interesting. Unfortunately the service was lackluster and the food was only OK. We waited nearly 45 minutes to be waited on, and our meals took over half an hour to come to the table. The restaurant was not that busy - it just seemed that they didn't have their act... More

Scarlet Begonias is a hidden gem. Makes you feel like you are out somewhere fancy even though the prices are good and you can be in jeans and a t-shirt.

I don't know how my wife found this place while I was driving, but I'm glad she did. Very relaxed servers, like they were your friends. Food was good too. Ordered the specialty garlic cheese bread for an appetizer- HUGE chunks of garlic cloves, be warned. Opted for the mushroom and Swiss burger... holy cow I think there were two... More

For my Mom's birthday, we usually go for ethnic food, but this year she wanted to try Scarlet Begonia's. Four people, and nobody liked their meal. I got a Cobb Salad--a high pile of uncut romaine lettuce leaves, with a sprinkle of miniscule bacon bits, some chunks of blue cheese, a tiny grilled chicken breast, and a bunch of diced... More

Dinner with family led everyone to order something different. The pasta was a mound of tastiness that could not be finished. The burger looked good and the review of it was too. Got a pizza, and it was the cause for my 'average' rating: I expected more cheese than what I got and the tomatoes were kind of pale. I... More

Scarlet Begonia's offers moderately priced, tasty pizza, pasta and sandwiches. Friendly for families. Very friendly service. Good beer selections. The decor and ambiance are informal and a bit "random" (is there a theme?). But the people are nice and the pizza is the best in town.
