The "Molly" was a favorite lunch/dinner option in the past. Yes, it was a bit pricier but the waterfront view made up for any other shortcomings. My sister made a reservation for a Wednesday lunch @ 12:30. We found we were going to be at the MPI closer to noon so called to change accordingly only to be told, "Well, it's first come- first served". Upon arrival there was only one other table seated; the response should have been "No problem. We'll make sure you have a lovely table ready when you arrive."
Once seated our drinks were served and our order placed. Two Hanger steaks were cooked perfectly very-very rare. A lobster sandwich was great. DON'T order the Fish & Chips! The chips were good, but the fish was not crispy at all, but had clearly been cooked earlier and reheated in the microwave. The coating was soggy. Honestly you'd do better at a Long John Silver!
Would we go back? Probably not. There are so many other options in the area that would do as good or better than "the Molly". This is clearly a situation where the place is resting on its laurels and going on its reputation. Sadly places like this don't last for long.
The Molly Pitcher Inn is focused on the business meeting/conference business. Food service has become a secondary source of revenue. If you're looking for a special place for lunch/dinner look elsewhere.
