Went with a large group (~30+ people) with a reservation on a Sunday night and found the restaurant to be packed. Parking is available on the street in Hanover (free on Sunday night). For this event, appetizers were set out and the flatbread, bread + butter, and nachos were available in ridiculous quantities. I ended up with a salad, which... More

Been here many times and the food is always excellent. The servers are very friendly and helpful. There are too many chain restaurants around. I would highly recommend keeping it local and going to a place that is consistently excellent!

Every time I am in Hanover I usually have lunch here...always been good. I must say that this last time was somewhat disappointing. I had a chicken sandwich and the piece of chicken was less than half the size of the bun. It was enough for lunch, but just looked funny presented that way. This is a comfortable and relaxing...

You're review was very kind considering the incorrect portion of chicken during your most recent visit. We appreciate that. I am so sorry that this happened. We have two sandwiches and each should have a 5oz trimmed boneless skinless breast. We butterly the chicken to get perfect coverage on the bun and create a nice base for the toppings. I'm... More

Thanks for visiting! We are so happy that you like our restaurant. A tip on parking: behind the restaurant there is a big lot. It is metered and finding a spot can still be tough. Don't ever chance running out of time on the meters - they stay on top of it. I've probably paid enough tickets to buy myself... More

I went to Molly's with my sister, a local, who described it as "American style food." I'm from a big city, so I wasn't expecting much. Boy, was I wrong. First of all, you simply must have the $3 margaritas. My sister complained that they were recently raised from $2. I have never seen a better deal (and they're great).... More

This is a crowded place where Dartmouth students eat. The comfort food is obviously very good. The pot roast was as good as I make at home (that's a compliment!). The beer is cold and they actually have non-light beer in bottles! Service was quick and collegiate. But adults are welcome here!

Went for lunch with a group of 8. The place was very busy but as we called ahead of time - our table was ready. Manu is varied with a nice selection. Service was very good and we all enjoyed our visit.
