looking for South shore restaurant with a fun bar

dadschum | Feb 20, 2011 10:09 AM

Hi Folks,
Long time lurker first time poster, I am looking for a south shore restaurant with a fun bar for my birthday dinner with two girlfriends next Saturday night. Looking primarily for a place in Quincy, Brantree, Hingham, Weymouth, area. Two of us are coming from the North shore (our passports are ready!:) and the other lives in Quincy and works in Scituate (which is where she will be coming from Saturday evening). So she is coming from south to north, relatively speaking so we don't want to go further south than Hingham.

We like steak, seafood, Mexican, Italian. Good Martinis too but other cockals are fine. We want a place where we can hang out at a fun bar for a drink first, have dinner at a table and then maybe go back to the bar afterwards. Dining out is a big part of what we enjoy on a regular basis so we like "good" food.

I've been reading this board for quite awhile and culled my list from some of your more frequent recommendations, but don't know if any have a "fun bar".

My list includes:
El Serape Braintree
Spazio Braintree
Sintra Braintree
Tosca Hingham
Stars Hingham
Rustic Kitchen Hingham
Burton’s Grill Hingham
Scarlet Oak Tavern Hingham
Alma Nove Hingham
Abby Park Milton
Trattoria San Pietro Norwell
Orta Pembroke
Gennaro Quincy
Fat Cat Quincy
Tavern at Quarry Hills Quincy (Granite Links Golf Course)
Ecco Trattoria - Weymouth
Peppercornz Weymouth

Any input on the food and or bar area on these or any other suggestions in our preferred locations or thereabouts would be a great help.

Thanks so much!
