Something for everyone here. Vegetarian hubby enjoyed his salad with avocado and apple, fish-eating wife enjoyed her salmon with couscous salad. Serviceable wine. Friendly, efficient service. Pleasant atmosphere. Casual, can't go wrong.

I stopped in here for lunch a week after having a fabulous meal at the sister restaurant, Jesse's. This place is popular with the students and right on the Main St. What a disappointment. While the portions are substantial, the preparation is horrible. I had the burger special, ordered medium well. It came prepared medium and dripped so much fat... More

I have eaten at Molly's both times I took classes at King Arthur flour baking center. The first time we ate dinner and I thought it typical bar food with high prices. The second time we had lunch and I found the pizza and soup/salad special to be a great deal, as well as a delicious meal. My friend had... More

Molly’s is probably the best of class within the “mediocre uninspiring joints that abound in the Upper Valley” category, serving the standard array of locally ubiquitous staples such as grilled chicken concoctions, Caesar salads and dishes that highlight bland melted cheese. I’ve actually had some good lunch specials (half a pizza and a salad) on a few occasions when I’ve... More

Good menu and good food. Something that satisfied everyone, even a picky 15 year old! The dessert (Morgan's brownie) was awesome. Coffee ice cream was a good choice.

Went to Molly's bar for some drinks with friends last night. I asked for a pitcher of beer and was told by the bartender that she was unable to serve pitchers of beer. I asked if pitchers of sangria were available for sale and she said yes. I asked the cost and she replied $14 per pitcher. I ordered one... More

We are not in the practice of charging guests for items that they do not enjoy. We pride ourselves on excellent service and genuine hospitality. I am sorry that... More

We stopped at this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised. After a 15 minute wait for a table we were seated at a table in a back corner. I ordered the tomato salad and loved it. It contained both yellow and red tomatoes along with feta cheese and it was served on top of arugala. Normally I do not like arugala... More

We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed our salads. We just reprinted our menus because we wanted to change the ingredients of the tomato salad. It's great to hear that you liked the change. I'm sorry that you felt our prices were too high. We've done our best to keep menu prices as reasonable as possible. As the... More

Good menu. Good prices. Fun venue (a lot of pro Darmouth and anti Cornell vibes) Not overly special, but better than most bars.
