My husband and I come here a lot to sit at the bar. Very warm and inviting, especially in the winter. Food is spot on and service is excellent. Perfect for watching the game with friends or a romantic dinner date.

Scarlet Oak has nice ambience, wonderful service, delicious food and it's super close to the Derby Street Shops. Go early on the weekend, though. Their potato salad is excellent and the sandwiches are very filling.
