Our visit to Molly's was from the Trip Advisor web site as we were heading north from Rhode Island up to Bartlett, NH, for some "R & R." Upon entering the very busy restaurant on a Friday at noontime, we realized this was the place to eat in town. We were quickly seated, order taken by Chelsea, (awesome waitress!!!), and... More

I have spent the past 4 summers working at a summer camp in Orford, NH and Molly's is ALWAYS the place to go on days/nights off! Food is incredible with a great menu choice, not to mention the $3 margaritas that are awesome! Would recommend to anyone! Can't wait to be back!

We got in at a shift change. Both servers were very friendly. They have a lunch special - I got the burger with mushrooms, onions and cheese, lettuce tomato, pickles and onion. It was delicious! Daughter had chicken carbonara that was delicious. I thought the sheet of part over the table and crayons in the condiment holder was a fun... More

I love to eat here, when wanting a casual,quick meal before a movie. Always can count on good american food and service.The menu has lots of options,and the prices are good. Very casual,relaxed and lively. Tonight we had an exceptional waiter named Isaac,he made our meal very enjoyable and I can say the service here is friendly and accommodating.

We loved the atmosphere in this place. Cozy with soft music and lighting. Our waitress was super nice. Sandwiches and salads are $11-$13. Lots of great menu options. Will certainly be returning.

I make regular trips to Hanover to visit family, and it is always a given that we have at least one meal at Molly's. If the bread and butter doesn't convince you at first of the greatness ahead, the artichoke and spinach dip will. The most difficult decision for me is whether to choose pizza or pasta for my entree.... More

A couple of times a year we travel a few hours to have lunch or dinner at Molly's. That's because the menu is extensive and pleasing. Everything is well prepared, and the portions are ample. it is located adjacent to Dartmouth college, in Hanover New Hampshire. If you like margaritas, you're in luck, as they are $3.00, all the time.... More

Your recent visits are truly appreciated. Thanks for the feedback about the eggplant sandwich. We will chat with our team and make sure that this doesn't continue to happen. In May, this sandwich will be coming off the menu and a new marinated grilled vegetable sandwich will replace it. This new sandwich is amazing! We grill summer squash, zucchini, bell... More

We toured Dartmouth on a very cold day and then tucked into Molly's for a warm lunch afterwards. We were pleasantly surprised by the good service and yummy food to satisfy a variety of palates (think: family). Pasta was predictable (kids liked it), the warm bread was delicious, the tomato soup and eggplant-topped pizza was fresh and delicious. The casual... More

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 courteous. Even though they are always super busy, we've never... More
