Stopped in just after lunch. Felt like the staff was tired. We are Yankee s. Something got lost in translation. Blackened chicken salad was delicious but not blackened. The French dip was limp and the au jus was a delicious horseradish sauce that was great on the fries. It was a little too shabby chic.

I arrived for a late lunch after a doctor visit downtown. Betty (Molly) was extremely engaging to talk with, and the server was a sweetie who gave prompt service. I had a wonderful quiche and tasty sweet potato fries. Even the tea tasted better than expected. Nice eating areas and restrooms, and prices less than I expected. I had a... More

Our office went to Molly's for a Christmas lunch and gift exchange. They gave us complimentary egg nog and some of their delicious homemade chips. We had several things off the menu including the Philly cheesesteak, the chicken wrap and the burger. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their lunch and the waitstaff was very friendly and outgoing! Will definitely go back!

Molly's is a great place for lunch - good food, friendly staff and the place is just full of good old Macon., Ga charm. Love it! One of my favorite down town eateries.

Molly's is the best lunch venue in Macon..Her chicken salad served on a warm crossiant on a plate is hard to beat. To anyone who has eaten at the famous Blue Owl in Kimmswick MO, this meal challenges theirs..both are excellent. Anything from salads to burgers to sandwhiches will be excellent. Prices and service are top notch. Give a try... More

We were a bus of 50 from Charleston who made reservations and selected our lunch items early. On arrival we found a quaint property with antique memorabilia on the walls and pink lemonade and strawberry shortcake already one the table. We were greeted by "Molly" who we later learned was not her real name but she was delightful and played... More

We stopped here on way back from Savannah for lunch. This is a super friendly place that welcomes you immediately. My wife had the blackened chicken sandwich and felt it was very good. I had the BLT and it was very tasty as well. We both had the homemade soup and it was seasoned really well with plenty of vegetables... More

Not usually open on weekends. We lucked out because they stayed open after a special event. Burgers, sandwiches, salads...homemade potato chips, onion rings, fries. Food was good, a great local option.

We were also travelling from Savannah to Atlanta for our flight home to England. This was the first place that caught our eye after turning off the interstate and what a great place to have our last US meal. It was only a light lunch - a sandwich and a wrap - but both were memorable due to the quality... More
