Be ready to wait if you're planning lunch or dinner at Molly's. It's always great food (plus who can beat their famous $2 Margarita!). Worth the wait every time.

We chose Molly's for a Friday night during Lent when we eat no meat. Menu offered lots of tasty options. Everyone was satisfied. We called ahead for a table and waited only a few minutes when we arrived. Staff was great.

We are glad to hear that you had a good time at our restaurant. We try to increase our seafood offerings during Lent, but always have great seafood on the menu. We buy it fresh and have it delivered often. If you're looking for fresh fish after Easter, please think of us. Hope to see you soon! More

Enjoyed a soup/pizza combination lunch in a nice atmosphere with great service after visiting Dartmouth. From the moment we arrived we felt as welcome guests.

The warm bread was enjoyed and I found the whipped sweet butter quite different a new experience.The atmosphere was comfortable and cosy with very good service.

I thought the food was good but they need a little more for the young children, my granddaughter had a pasta with marinara sauce which she did not care for and it looked like it could have been a smaller portion.

Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with us. Although I'm glad that we remain one of your picks in Hanover, I'm sorry that we fell short on your last visit.

Food is above average it's a bar and resturant that serves more like pub food . We like the atmosphere and the waitress was very courtious. The beer didn't come out cold so was a disappointment especially for a 7 dollar beer . Other than that a great spot

Thanks for the kind review. I'm sorry about the beer temperature. I don't know what happened, but we will look into it. I hope that you shared your concern with your server and she was able to get you a properly chilled beverage. If not, I would love to buy you a beer on your next visit. Please email me... More

I heard that Molly's was so-so, but we had a great lunch on a cold afternoon. There service was quick, food good, and ambiance all that you would expect in a college town. Would return.
