Every February, we welcome the month of love and romance. What better way to celebrate with your sweetheart, loved ones, or best friends than a foodie date night? In Scituate, you’ll find endless food options to get your dining on. Here are four restaurants perfect for date night in this seaside town.
Dining doesn’t get any finer than Oro. Located off the Chief Justice Cushing Highway, this restaurant offers a relaxed atmosphere with locally sourced seafood and American cuisine. The menu includes appetizers like fried calamari and entrées like a braised lamb shank or little neck clams with chorizo.
This year, Valentine’s Day falls on a Wednesday. What better way to celebrate than heading over to Oro for half-priced oyster Wednesdays? On Thursday the restaurant hosts $5 tapas from 4 pm to 6:30 pm.
The Mill Wharf Restaurant
History buffs will love The Mill Wharf Restaurant, directly located on the site of the original mill. Diners can enjoy a panoramic ocean view where fish, sailboats, and the Old Scituate Light make their home. When the weather is nice, enjoy the outside deck and view the beautiful seaside sunset. In colder temperatures, check out the building’s inside dining; you’ll find historic artifacts and antiques in combination with contemporary architecture and cathedral ceilings.
The Mill Wharf Restaurant is known for, you guessed it, seafood! You can try the seafood specialties or pair a Raw Bar item with a specialty cocktail. Their signature Wharf Breeze combines pineapple rum, lime, bitters, and pineapple juice for a satisfying drink.
As one of the newer restaurants in Scituate, the Salt Society prides itself on its sushi. Located next to China Gourmet on Front Street, cozy cocktails, gourmet sushi, and small and large plates lead the menu.
For the novice or sushi enthusiast, you’ll find endless selections from salmon avocado maki, tuna nigiri, to yellowtail sashimi. Looking to mix it up? On the specialty maki menu, try the Lobster Blossom, a whole lobster tail with cucumber, spicy mayo, tobiko, and Japanese seasoning.
Get your fill of carbs with the house-made focaccia with truffle honey butter and Malden salt, or go for the braised short ribs. Share specialty sushi with your partner or even a fun little appetizer. It doesn’t get more romantic than that.
The Voyage Irish Pub & Restaurant
Only 22 steps away from the ocean in the Village of Humarock, you’ll find The Voyage Irish Pub and Restaurant. Owned by a Scituate local Irish-born family, the pub brings a homey flair of music, food, and craic (a fun time).
Try Irish dinner delicacies from the shepherd’s pie and the Celtic club or go for breakfast bites like the corned beef hasher or the Irish breakfast with white and black pudding. Sip on fun-filled cocktails like the Jameson Ginger Sparkler or go for a classic Guinness.
Food is one of the closest ways to someone’s heart. Between these four restaurants, you’ll find the right Scituate date night spot.
