Quality food and great service. The only downside was the swarm of flies in several areas within the restaurant. This establishment need s to implement a program to minimize insects in their restaurant. After trying Halibut all over town during my stay in this area Molly's had the best halibut and service by far!

If you grew up watching the Beachcombers right after the Wonderful World of Disney in the 70's as I did, you will enjoy the memorabilia displayed. The service is friendly, the fish and chips fresh, crispy and delicious. Don't miss it!

We had a great meal with a stunning view. The memories of the Beachcombers were everywhere. Well worth a visit.

We sat outside on the marina side, beautiful sunny day. Waitress was very friendly, food a bit slow to come out but I enjoyed the fish tacos and my dh enjoyed the fried prawns. Fun place to visit if you remember The Beachcombers and sitting outside in the town of Gibson's is great.

We were avid watchers of the Beachcombers and were looking forward to dining at Molly's Reach. We sat outside by choice but it was a bit chilly. The food was excellent and the wait staff very pleasant. The Consable Constable burger was excellent. A trip down memory lane for us.

Some restaurants have others at a natural disadvantage. Being a landmark to one of the most endearing and iconic Canadian shows like the Beachcombers cannot be an easy haul for surrounding eateries. Add in the scenic views of the sunshine coastal mountains and active marina and you can easily have other local restaurants at a disadvantage. Having eaten at Molly's... More

We've eaten at Molly's often and tried a wide variety of dishes, and the food has been consistently good. The view of Gibson's Harbour is fantastic of course, and the old historic building has been kept in good repair. If you're old enough to have watched

Anyone who was a fan of the Beachcombers should take the opportunity to visit this restaurant! The food was good and the atmosphere was great! It is filled to the brim with Beachcombers photographs and memorabilia and everything on the menu is also inspired by the show. The waitress I had was both friendly and patient. Additionally, the location is... More

At any other restaurant, I would be ranting about the incredibly slow service, the high prices, and how poorly we felt after eating some very greasy fish & chips... but this is Molly's Reach. How do you hate such an iconic piece of Canadiana? I just wish the food had been a little better, and everything else could be forgiven.

We stopped in for a quick drink and a bite on the patio at Molly's. They allowed our dogs on the patio which was great. Food, drinks and service were good and the feel of the place is great.
