“Very good”
Reviewed August 12, 2014 via mobile

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 surf & turf, swordfish or beef tenderloin, and for dessert there was ice cream or warm chocolate cake. My table of 6 had everything, and we were all very happy with our choices. My husband is usually particular about his steak and he had no complaints with this one. He was also pretty fond of the chowder.
I found the staff to be professional, helpful and courteous.
I did feel like it took a while for the food to come out, but then again there were probably 50 people in our party. It was a full house on top of that so I guess it's actually impressive that the kitchen managed to not overcook the food.
I would definitely go back.

“Scarlet Oak Tavern”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

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 you his favorite ghost story!

“what a place to eat”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

was looking for a steak restaurant close to hull ma., that was ok to take kids to.
well this is the place, never made it there with the kids but could see there would have been no problem. this is a high end restaurant with out any of the fuss. the food was up there with the best, and i have been to many steak houses. the help was great, service was on the spot never in the way.
the price not cheap but not out of the way as in some places. if your with in 25 mile of the place
its wroth the trip.

“Lovely spot...”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

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 was quite good too. We ordered the beet salad with grilled chicken breast on top, it was delicious. We also tried the monte cristo which was made a little different than we're used to, but it was really good too. Our bartended/server was friendly and helpful. It's a little pricey and the wait was longer than we would have liked, but the food and atmosphere were excellent

“Very disappointing!!!”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

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 from the bar focused on encouraging us to order yet more drinks. Meals: The risotto was the smallest portion imaginable with almost no lobster for $28 ( side dishes were all extra???) my steak ordered medium RARE came out well done, with no pink visible?? The baked potato like a brick- sent back plate & all others completed their meal before my plate came back over 20 min later with new steak but same hard potato?? The waitress seemed to see nothing wrong with all of this as she should at least have offered some dessert for this birthday meal having been spoiled.. Will never recommend to friends or return.
