Mollies has been the best-kept local secret for breakfast and lunch. Generous portions, large menu, great American eats.

I'm double billing Mollies with Ricardo's (did the same on their review) as these were the best two meals of our week long trip and we wished we'd eaten at these two restaurants almost exclusively. Mollie's. Non descript when you walk up to it, next...More

Major rush job. We have came off and on with friends and family and will not again. We came around 6:30 pm, waiting 25-30 minutes for very simple orders. The food finally came out a little after 7. We had been told, not asked, that...More
