After a delightful overnight in Connecticut where we joined friends Lynda & Ben for dinner and again for breakfast, we headed east on US-44. Ultimately we landed in Middleboro, Massachusetts and in need of some good sustenance. Luckily we chose Charred Oak Tavern, self described as a local seafood restaurant and whiskey bar. Wow! Just what we were looking for and more, it’s a family friendly gourmet restaurant with an impressive bar. And we were blessed with Anthony as our server who guided us through our choices. A Boulevardier and The Sazerac to sip, Pan Fried Haddock and Baked Seafood Casserole to fill us up, and Ice Cream topped Banana Bread to finish it off. We’re glad we arrived early for as we were leaving on this Friday night, the line was out the door! Will we be back? Without a doubt. Maybe for a whiskey tasting, definitely for more of the amazing food. Put this incredible place on your list. And don’t forget to explore Middleboro’s downtown.

      Definitely put this one on your list. It’s got a distinct urban vibe but out in a small town in southeastern Massachusetts.
