Neat place, good example of local life

I was drawn to this restaurant because the facade is so cute and quaint. Turns out, this place used to be a set for a tv show set in Gibsons back in the 50's or 60's I think. The place is so neat, there's memorabilia from the show and lots of information and artifacts about local life and culture... read more

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.

Had an early Sunday lunch there and ordered a bowl of their chowder and crab cakes. Chowder was average, but the crab cakes were delicate, filled with bits of crab and small shrimp. Side salad came with blue cheese dressing, which was delicious. Obviously, quite a tourist attraction, the place was packed!

We usually end up taking our guests from away for a meal there once during their visit if they are old enough to remember the Beachcombers series. Just better to go for lunch than dinner! Pizza and fish and chips are good. We often have had to wait awhile for our orders, but staff were wonderful.

Prices are expensive for really small portions and mediocre taste. Wouldn't go back. The only reason we have gone back in the past is because of family visiting. Other than that we never go

We came here for lunch after the ferry to Gibsons and got a table on the patio almost right away! The servers were friendly, which is important to me. I had the grilled cheese on sourdough with a curried vegetable soup for $11. The grilled cheese was what you'd expect from one but I really enjoyed the soup! The flavours... More

Molly's is a good place to get a quick bite. Nice photos of the Beachcomber cast and crew but the interior of Molly's is not at all what it was like during the show. (Not that Molly's doesn't look good, it looks good.... has had updates) My wife had a salad, it was good, I had a burger and it... More

I am disappointed that I'm constantly let down in the legacy that lives on through Mollys Reach restaurant. A couple of servers there are fantastic, absolutely top notch friendly, courteous and talkative. However I have also witnessed who appeared to be the owner or manager be a bit snappy to these ladies who if worked for me, would be treating... More

Not great and there was a hair in the food. The Food was not that tasty and the fries were very dry. I would not recommend.

The History and the Settings of Molly's Reach is second to none. The food is average. But just sitting by those wooden tables overlooking the marina gave us a glimpse of nostalgic times...
