Fantastic Food

We love going to Molly's. Whether we get the pizza, or entrees, or just appetizers before a movie at the Nugget Theatre, the food is always great! Our favorite there is the spinach & artichoke dip with copious amounts of their home-baked bread. The service staff is also attentive and... read more

We had the C.B.C. sandwich, fish and chips and the ceasar salad. Everything was well prepared, came quickly and the waitstaff was really good. A special request to split portions was handled with a cheerful response. How can you beat a $3 margarita? When we left at about 6 pm there were many people waiting for a table, but at... More

We had lunch there while in town on business. It's sort of a typical college town restaurant, but the menu was pretty extensive, the staff was very nice, and there was a nice variety of lunch specials. It was clean and the staff was attentive. I'd eat there again.

We shared the avocado and green apple salad along with the salmon and mussel linguine special and both were delicious.

Mollys was a very warm, welcoming beacon in the middle of a frigid night. The food was good, selection amazing, and the French style mussels were out of this world. However, I have to single out two unsung heroes of the night. I'm sorry I didn't get their names but the two at the host podium were an amazing team... More

This downtown eatery is a VERY popular venue because it is well-managed by Blue Sky Group, including Jessie's close to the Dartmouth hospital, and Lui Lui in West Lebanon. They have so much business that the quality ingredients are served quickly, so they are not stale. I had the shrimp fettuccine, and I sampled my husband's salmon for future reference.... More

After a long day at a swim meet we were looking for some place with food that everyone would like. We found it at Molly's. Burgers, salads, sandwiches and wood fire pizza. Great food, nice atmosphere, family restaurant.

My wife and I eat lunch here about 3 times a week. The waitstaff is always EXCELLENT and really go out of their way for you. If you can eat in the "bar" section in the front of Molly's, you might be fortunate enough to have Doug as your waiter/bartender. He is the BEST waiter we've ever had anywhere!!!! The... More

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
