I've been here before and my wife want s to go but we went in and stood right in front of the host station for a full minute without any acknowledgement from the 3 host staff there. We left.

This place can get busy with students and locals alike. It's an 'up market' burger joint and if you want volume and "fries with that" this place is a winner.

The "Very Good" rating is relative to what Molly's is, which is a pub style restaurant with typical pub fare. There's a place like this in every college town and this place isn't anything special/different, but a good option for good and greasy food.

We arrived early and had no wait at all. Service was polite, attentive and efficient. My son had the Caramel chicken (a bit light for his growing body) and I had the wasabi tuna. Both very tasty

My daughter and I stopped at Molly's for lunch following a college tour of Dartmouth. We sat outside on the patio on a beautiful day. Matt, our server, still in training, was very helpful and eager to please. We enjoyed the burrata and tomato salad which was good. My daughter had the mac and cheese and thoroughly enjoyed every bite.... More

Suzanne, thanks for the great review! Matt will enjoy hearing about how your perceived his service. Best of luck to your daughter as she chooses a college. I hope Dartmouth is one of her favorites. More

Not complaining - it is what it is. However - the spinach artichoke dip was really good. Take it for what it is

Awesome black bean burger and guacamole and sweet potato fries. Service was good too. Bathrooms too small. Great surroundings

Thanks for the 5 star review! I apologize about our restrooms. We are blessed with a great location, but an older building which has some limitations. There is a third restroom on the upper level which is for single use, but it is much roomier. More

Consistent, good, casual dining with varied menu that has something for everyone. Homemade bread with honey butter that is very yummy! Great salad variety and can add on grilled shrimp, chic, steak, tuna for a large meal. Salmon, burger, noodle bowls also good choices. Does not accept reservations but does do call ahead seating. Take out available.

Located in middle of Hanover, NH. Just a block from Dartmouth college. Molly's is a busy, popular, fun place to grab a meal. Decorated with Dartmouth paraphernalia. Burgers were giant and delicious. Wonderful fresh bread. 3$ margaritas were great as was local beer.

We came here on a recommendation and were very happy with Molly's! Were lucky enough to get a seat at the bar after 10 minutes. The bartender was extremely nice and did a great job. The drinks are very good - suggest the Skinny Margarita (not $3, but worth it). We both had the chicken stir fry and decided we... More

We look forward to your next visit! You won't be disappointed with the burgers. Often, the chef will come up with a special burger using beef from a local farmer in Piermont, NH. If you see a Robie Burger on special, I highly recommend it. Thanks for visiting and writing a great review! More
