The food here was great, the service was excellent. I recommend trying the fish cakes and the ribs. They were both really good I enjoyed every aspect of my meal here from the appetizers to the desserts. The $3 margaritas were nice and strong too.

Molly's is one of those great places that does a bit of everything and has a great bar too. Perfect for large groups of people with very different tastes. While their menu is diverse, they execute every dish perfectly. No one will leave disappointed. Pricer...More

Stopped by for lunch and after waiting for 20 minutes to get a table, we were told that they could not serve alcohol because their liquor license had not yet been updated for 2018. Can't imagine the patrons dismay when midnight struck on 12/31. Wish...More

Chuck, I'm so sorry that your experience wasn't great on the 2nd. It was a crazy day for us because of a transition in ownership of the restaurant. I planned poorly and didn't allow enough time for licensing. This prevented us from serving for a...More

As other reviews on this website have said, the food is quite good and fairly priced. The ambience is welcoming and jovial. This is a family friendly place, as my six-year-old daughter and I experienced. My only complaint is that her chicken tenders were overcooked...More

Thanks for your kind review. I'm sorry that the tenders were overcooked. These tenders are cut and breaded in house from fresh chicken. It's a shame that they weren't prepared correctly for you. Please give them another try on your next visit.

We came for our anniversary, never having been here before. What a treat! The whole ambience when you walk in, tables by the windows, excellent service, just everything. The bread & butter they brought to the table was to die for. We had the Calamari,...More

Thanks for the 5 star review! The grilled cheese is an amazing sandwich. I'll be sad to see it go when the summer menu rolls out. We appreciate you dining with us!

Molly's looked inviting and warm so we stumbled in one night to get away from the cold. We were pleasantly surprised. It was a bustling place but cozy. And the menu was large (too large?) with plenty of choices. It was hard to decide but...More

This place has a great atmosphere and pretty good food. My salmon was excellent, my husband liked his pizza. Really the only reason it's not a 5 star review is that the pretzel appetizer was weird. The beer/cheese sauce was fine, but the pretzels that...More
