With the location on Hanover's main street and the décor, it is a great place to have a leisurely lunch or dinner. It is certainly a meeting place for visitors and locals alike. The food is quite good and reasonable priced with good service and conducive atmosphere. We go here at least once or twice every trip with family.

My wife and I were vacationing in New England and stopped in Hanover to see Dartmouth College. We had lunch here and were both very satisfied. We had the stir fried vegetables with chicken. The sauce was outstanding and the food was hot and very good. Our server, Rachael, was excellent and very helpful in suggesting items to order.

This was my first visit to Dartmouth College and decided to stop in for dinner and was not disappointed. Great menu and a good selection of beers. I tried their Mac & Cheese and loved it! Cheesy, with a crunchy top, this is a filler! It was served with a side salad with a great balsamic dressing. They also provided... More

Stopped in for lunch with a coworker while on the road. Both ordered burgers, both burgers were very overcooked. Couldn't send them back as we didn't have the time. If you're going to charge $12+ for a burger, your kitchen staff should be able to cook them properly.

Steve, I am so sorry that we overcooked your burgers when you were passing through. I hope that the manager was able to take care of your bill. Please let me know. If you are in the area again, I would love the opportunity to show off our burger properly prepared. Please reach out to me either way so that... More

So it's move in Day at Dartmouth and we are hungry!!! A Hamburger and fries have never tasted so good! We were seated in the bar and although we had to wait longer than normal for our meal due to a large take out order placed right before us, our servers were fantastic. The food was delicious, the atmosphere fun.... More

We went with my daughter's family, including two young grandsons. It was very busy, so we waited outside while some musicians performed. We were seated in a half hour. Our server was very attentive, but not overbearing. The food was delicious and a good value for the price. I recommend trying Molly's!

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
