After visiting Hanover for many years, and now living nearby, I can safely say that Molly's is still our go-to place to eat out in Hanover. Food is EXCELLENT every time. I have never had a disappointing meal there, and I am constantly impressed by their variation of specials. Servers are always friendly and attentive without being annoying. Ambiance is... More

It was a bit late for dinner, and we looked around downtown Hanover for a decent restaurant, and discovered Molly's, which was doing a great business with a good share of students. The food was delicious and reasonably priced--we shared a flatbread pizza and had salmon appetizers. The server was attentive and knowledgeable. The pizza is better than I can... More

Doctor_M, Thanks for the fantastic review. We are so happy that you happened upon us and hope to enjoy your company again the next time you are in Hanover! Your comment about our pizza is flattering. We use a wood fired brick oven which adds a lot to the flavor and crust. See you soon! More

Staying overnight in Hanover...asked car attendant at 6 South Street (hotel) for a recommendation. My friend and I were seated almost immediately, at Molly's.. no reservation. We ate around 5:30-6 PM, the place was crowded and noisy, but it's in a college town, and I expected noise. For starters, I had cold cantaloupe and pear soup which was delicious. Then... More

We took a large group out to lunch and had a great meal for a reasonable price. Definitely recommend the pizza appetizer.

Good food, excellent service and a nice vibe overall. The Red Sox pizza was a big hit and we all took food home - big portions!

The sign actually reads "Molly's Balloon." I'm not sure what the "balloon" part is about, but the staff inside certainly has high spirits. They were pleasant, kind, and patient with my three nieces, who definitely had their loud moments. It seems like a very family friendly menu. The kids liked the burger and chicken fingers. My sister-in-law and I both... More

While meeting up w/ some girlfriends we chose Molly's, knowing there's be something for everyone on their varied menu. Seated in the corner table on the patio, Molly's offered a great spot to catch up & enjoy the summer night- a really great atmosphere out there! 3 of us chose cocktails from the specials menu that evening, and all greatly...

Molly's has a varied menu to please everyone in your group or family, a solid kitchen, and an excellent wait staff. This is our standard restaurant for out-of-town visitors (who are not looking for ethnic food). There isn't a bad item on the menu, the bar is excellent (from $2 margaritas to good tap beers and top-shelf cocktails), and you... More

Thanks for your endorsement of our restaurant! Sorry to report that we bumped the price of the margaritas to $3 after holding strong for 15 years. We thought is was time to charge more than a soda, but still the best deal around. We look forward to seeing you soon! More

They have a wood burning pizza oven and some nice combinations of toppings for flat crust style pizza - all good there. The fig and proscuitto pizza - excellent. The salmon burger - good. The...
