The setting is warm, friendly and fun. The menu has something for everyone. The prices are reasonable. We had some wine, a pork tenderloin dinner and a scallop dinner that were both amazing and tasty. The desserts were made in house with fabulous ice cream on both. Can't wait to go back.

Molasses Grill is one of the best, if not the best restaurant that I have ever been to. It's located in little Halifax, VA and worth driving from the big cities to get a good dinner! Everything on the menu is fabulous and Thursday they offer burger specials! Highly recommend!

We visited twice during our stay in South Boston - at the beginning of the trip and at the end - it was perfect both times. We've been visiting here for years, the owner/chef and his family are super friendly and he's such a great guy, always passing by the tables and making sure everything's okay. They even make a...

This place is a gem in a small town. If you are visiting family and want a quality meal at a reasonable price, there is no where else to consider. If your local then you've probably already heard or tasted how great this food is. Really nice intimate setting. We've been greeted by the chef every visit. The menu has... More

Chef Steve and his wife Karen do a wonderful job of running a successful restaurant with delicious food. We go here for every celebration dinner and just for date nights as a couple, as well. The menu changes often and offers local foods. We always look forward to the apple crisp that Chef prepares in the wintertime. The brownie is... More

Visited with my girlfriend. We had a very enjoyable bottle of wine and a selection of entres. She had the filet, I had halibut. Both were cooked to perfection and were seasoned well. Enough type enhance the flavor not not overwhelm the palate. Very nice surprise in the small town of Halifax

This was our first visit and we will definitely be back. Roberto was attentive and his recommendations were delicious. Don't skip out on dessert, the brown sugar pie is worth every single calorie ;)

This was a wonderful surprise and treat for us. Southside Virginia has a lot of down-home style places, but this is a beautiful, elegant space with great ambiance and absolutely lovely food. As they say, it's southern-inspired, but the dishes are very creative and masterfuly executed. We were there on a Friday night (admittedly at the last hour they were... More
