Cozy Restaurant with Great Food

Salads were large, fresh and creative. Everything was well-prepared and our waiter was personable and efficient. Definitely... read more

My wife and I eat at Molly's a couple of times a week. It is ALWAYS good with friendly staff and probably the best variety of food (along with the sister restaurant, Jesse's) around. Yesterday they had a Mexican special of Pulled Pork Enchiladas. It was EXCELLENT! If you go Monday thru Thursday, try to sit up front. Doug, the... More

My daughter lives in the area and she brought us here because this is her favorite place to eat. They make an awesome Lemonade (non alcoholic). Great selection of beers.

I'm so sorry that your steak portion was too small. There should have been 9 ounces of meat. We use tenderloin tips which makes the price a bit higher, but I can understand your disappointment considering what you were served. Please email me before your next visit so that I can make this right for you - tony@blueskyrestaurants Thanks for... More

This place is so popular that you need to expect to wait for a table most nights. no reservations. The complementary loaf of warm, wheat bread with cheese on top and whipped honey butter is absolutely addictive. You can get more if you scarf your first loaf. I love their cobb salad. Their pizza is good. Some weekdays have special... More

Very good food and a wonderful atmosphere. The food choices are great and varied. The bread and honey-butter are always in gone in a flash when delivered to the table. Never had a bad meal here.

Solid long time favorite for visiting parents at Dartmouth College. Good food, but a bit over priced for the area. Located just off the Hanover Green, Molly's is a good choice if you are trying to please a wide variety of tastes.

Restaurant had a Dartmouth theme thru out the place with fun signs like "there is a bon fire tonight...bring your Cornell Memoriablia". The menus are on old album covers.

I'm so sorry that we fell short during your last visit. We have a busy restaurant, so it does get a bit loud, but when the food is executed correctly- it's wonderful. All of our recipes are made from scratch and the seafood is fresh - never frozen. I certainly hope that you will give us another try. Please email... More

The atmosphere is great. The food is better. Menu is full of gluten free options, including a full menu of pizzas that can all be made on a GF crust. Servers are knowledgable about GF items.
