Molly's is a great place to eat in Hanover, whether you choose the dining room or the bar. The former has a quieter, darker ambience. The pub is well lit with lots of windows looking on to Main Street - good for people watchers, as Hanover always has an interesting assortment. Salads, soups, and burgers are fine. Fried food (e.g.... More

The restaurant was busy but the wait wasn't long as we called ahead to be put on the wait list. We both had fish and chips. The fish was very good, the fries were so-so. Wait staff was very good. I'd go again.

We ate lunch at Molly's today as we drove through the area on a weekend trip to Vermont. We walked in right at noon and were led to a table right away. Our server, Zach, was fantastic. He was incredibly personable and friendly and was very good with our kids (2 and 7). The kids loved their pizza and pasta.... More

Every time I have been to Molly's I have never been disappointed. From their goat cheese pizza to their salads and chicken sandwiches. Their bread and butter is to die for. I would eat here every night if I could. One of my all time favorite restaurants!

Have eaten here a number of times, the food and service keep getting better. For a casual restaurant, the food is very, very good. This is probably the best restaurant of its type in town, in a town where Dartmouth University is located.

Many dining options, plenty of local beer options and a decent size glass of wine for the price. Service was terrific as was the management. Only downfall I saw was the bathrooms are down some steep stairs. But the place is neat with a relaxed state about it. Food was all good with four different meals ordered in our group.

Thanks for the awesome 5 star review! I'm glad that you realized our wine was a generous pour. Most restaurants serve a 6 ounce pour. Ours is 33% larger at 8oz. We've wondered if guests realized that it's a great value. There is one restroom upstairs in the back of the restaurant for guests with mobility issues. It's near the... More

We appreciate you dining with us and writing your nice review! Our chef is committed to supporting local farmers. It's hard to get produce this time of year, but we still have some tomatoes that are grown in Vermont greenhouses and we've been serving a lot of cheese and beef from Robie Farm in Piermont, NH.

I've been coming to Molly's for years, and this time I met an old high school friend on Christmas Eve for a late lunch. The place was packed around 1:30 pm considering they were closing early at 3. Because of how busy they were, it took awhile for our waitress to bring our bread and molasses butter. I ordered the... More

I'm so sorry that the fig pizza wasn't great when you dine with us. When it's made correctly, it's one of my favorite items on the menu. We'll work with our team members to improve consistency and execution of this dish. There should have been a nice layer of fig jam over the crust and plentiful toppings of sliced prosciutto... More
