4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Nothing fancy, but at-home feeling. Had a great salad with friends recently. Good burgers and calamari there too.

“Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We went for dinner and there was quite a wait. We did go back for lunch the next day. The menu was inventive, food was very good, and service was excellent. Would definitely go back!!

“A staple in Hanover”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We have dined at Molly's so many times, I've lost count, and it never ceases to please. Typically we are in a rush and find the atmosphere very relaxing, the youthful service is attentive and the food is consistently good. You really can't go wrong with this choice!

“Great spot in the enjoyable town of Hanover”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Molly's is located on Main St. in the heart of this small college town. It's just a block or so from the main quad on Dartmouth campus, so a good spot for college kids and professors as well. It's a large restaurant, with a fun, casual vibe. The large menu is suitable for all ages, and it can be a casual family spot or a good place for a business lunch too. Service was good, as was the food. And it's reasonably priced as well. Nothing concerning to report at all, and I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't enjoy it hear. Good for both lunch and dinner as well. Oh.....it's not a romance spot, so if you are reading this looking for a romantic dinner spot this isn't your place!

Quick note: We stopped here while passing through, and as we walked Main St looking for a place to have lunch we noted that many of the restaurants on Main St. tend to be a little more on the formal side than we would have thought. Nothing wrong with that, but Molly's is in sharp contrast to this theme, as it's very casual and comfortable for those looking for something different than what seems to be the trend in this area.

“Great surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Molly's was fantastic. It exceeded our expectations after reading some mixed reviews. Tryg, our server, was great! We were all over the menu and he helped us narrow it down to some delicious options. Our table ordered the broccoli-cheddar soup, the apple and avocado salad, the fish tacos, and the quesadillas. The prices were very reasonable and it was an all around great evening.
