Delish!!

Molly's has some of the best chicken salad I've had in a restaurant. They make it there with her own "secret recipe". Yum! The fruit salad as a side is very "old school/southern" - I recommend it as a good compliment to the chicken salad. The greens with grilled chicken was popular in my group... read more

Have never had a bad meal or service. The food is delicious and plentiful, the monte cristo sandwich is divine! The staff is friendly and the owners usually come out to say hello. It feels like meals back in the day with family.

looked up ratings on TA for lunch and learned that a nearby restaurant was #3! I was excited! I was alone and got to the restaurant around closing before 2:30. First impression inside the door was that it was the basic design of a pizza restaurant that had previously been in that location, which was okay, they had worked with... More

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
