We are located on Hingham's historic Main Street in a 250-year old colonial house that has been thoroughly restored and updated by the award-winning Niemitz Design Group. Our cuisine, led by Executive Chef Stephen Sherman, centers around great steaks and the freshest seafood, although we also offer contemporary versions of classic American comfort food. Our philosophy is that good service is never intimidating service; and that honest, freshly-prepared food can often be more of a luxury than something you can't pronounce.

The food was spectacular service was impeccable the ambience very nice. The only complaint I have is that I made an 830 reservation and was not seated until 9 o’clock this seems to be the norm whenever I go to this restaurant. I know some people never want to leave the table and that is the reason why .

Enjoyed a wonderful meal for a birthday celebration. We all ordered steaks that were perfectly cooked and delicious. The manager was very accommodating in adjusting the temperature in the rear dining room for us. Thank you!

We love Scarlet Oak Tavern! We have been there a number of times over the years, for dinner and brunch, and have booked private rooms for special occasions. We always have a fabulous meal and great service.

We hit scarlet oak tavern tonight based on recommendations from this page for an anniversary dinner. Our reservation was 830 and we’re about 15 minutes early so grabbed a drink at the bar. Bartender a bit annoyed as we weren’t seated at the bar and made it known she was unhappy she had to service those of us around the perimeter, but whatever. We were seated a few minutes later and our waiter was wonderful, knowledgeable and his recommendations of specials were on point. Started with the seafood plate which was an assortment of oysters, shrimp, lobster tail and crabmeat on ice. Entrees: I had the cod on a bed of fennel purée, squash and what I believe were fried chick peas and bacon bits. He had the steak, butternut squash flan and baked potatoes. Basically we ate my meal and his will be steak and eggs for breakfast, very generous portions. Dessert: he had chocolate creme brûlée which was good but I prefer it warm, this was cool. I had apple cobbler and cinnamon ice cream, again I prefer warmed, this was not but the flavor was good on both and can’t go wrong with a cup of cappuccino. Perfect for the kind of night I wanted us to have and the bill was more than reasonable for everything we had, actually much less than I anticipated. Overall a great experience.

I went to Scarlet Oak Tavern with a friend to celebrate a birthday, on the recommendation of my husband's Doctors' group who recently had a luncheon meeting there which they enjoyed very much. The attractive old tavern, tastefully decorated for the holidays, was a very pleasant and comfortable setting. The friendly service, creative menu, and delicious food all added up to a very enjoyable birthday lunch. I would definitely recommend the Scarlet Oak Tavern to family and friends.
