We love the Scarlet Oak for many reasons. Let's start with the decor- rustic, classy and warm. Visit during the fall/winter/early spring months and they will have a roaring fire. The building is over 200 years old, so it is historical mixed with modern touches....More

Had a lovely lobster bake pizza. The cornbread was delicious. My friend had a nice piece of haddock. Service was great, and the atmosphere was very nice. A terrific lunch.

Great venue, ambience, patio, food and service. This place has it all, including live music on the weekends. It's not really a place for the kiddies (although they are welcome) but the other diners (or maybe it's just me!) would appreciate it if you took...More
