Molly's is a popular place for the Dartmouth crowd and the locals. Had steak tacos for dinner, great waitress (didn't get her name). Co-worker raves about their pizza. The basket of bread is a nice snack. Downtown Hanover is a quaint area, definitely recommend visiting.

I stopped in with a friend to enjoy a margarita, and after spending quite a bit of time talking decided to have dinner. As I looked at the menu I commented to the server that I was in the mood for seared ahi tuna and was disappointed that it was not offered as an entree. She said that she was... More

Had a solo lunch, stopped into Molly's on a recommendation. Sat at the bar, and taken care of by Doug, who was attentive without being pushy or rushing me along. As I was looking at the menu he offered me bread to start, unsolicited. Great menu-salads, sandwiches, burgers, pizza and much more. Started with a tomato soup which had the... More

My husband and I decided to spend a rather chilly afternoon in Hanover. We wanted to have lunch before going to the movies. We chose Molly's because we hadn't been there in a while, and we have always liked the food. This time, however, was different. After looking over the rather extensive menu, we decided to split the Roasted Chick... More

We stopped by here for lunch and shared pizza with the family! Thin crust and absolutely delicious! One of the best pizza's I have ever had, especially loved the margherita pizza with mozzarella cheese, basil, and tomato! yum! The bread served was also very very delicious!

We appreciate that you chose to visit our restaurant when there are so many options in downtown Hanover. We're flattered by your comments. Our pizza is unique because of our oven. It's a real wood-fired oven. Lots of places will soak wood in water to create a smoldering effect and then fire their oven was gas, but ours is the... More

We stopped at Molly's for Lunch and were met at the door by both charming and friendly staff. The meal was wonderfully prepared and service wonderful. When you go there, try the Mud Pie. You will never regret it! Wish all Restaurants were like this one.

Thanks for the great review. We appreciate that you chose to dine with us and are so happy that you enjoyed yourself. You can't go wrong with dessert at Molly's! Mud pie is awesome, but all desserts are made from scratch and delicious. The carrot cake is my favorite and the portion is big enough to share with a couple... More

Friendly service. Fun atmosphere. " Molly's Mussels" were out of this world! Visited from out of town but would travel back to go to Molly's again.

Too bad that you live out of town - but, thanks for visiting and your review. I'm in total agreement about the mussels preparation. Who knew that green curry sauce and fries went so well with fresh PEI mussels! I guess that't the reason why we have chefs. Hope to see you in the future. More

I'm a local at Molly's. In my opinion the three best dishes there are the CBC, wood-fired pizzas as well as the Cobb salad. I tried straying from this a few nights ago out to dinner with my family when I tried the steak tips. While the steak was fine, the rest of the dish had me left in disappointment.

I would love to hear more about how we can improve the steak tips as they are a recent addition to our menu. Please email me at tony@blueskyrestaurants.com with some more detailed... More

Went with a large group (~30+ people) with a reservation on a Sunday night and found the restaurant to be packed. Parking is available on the street in Hanover (free on Sunday night). For this event, appetizers were set out and the flatbread, bread + butter, and nachos were available in ridiculous quantities. I ended up with a salad, which... More

Thanks for the great review. I am so sorry about the salmon on your salad when you dined. Just before the holiday, we had some confusion about the portion size and some guests received salmon portions that were too small. I'm assuming that this was what you noticed and I am very sorry for our mistake. Please reach out to... More
