It is a very cozy location, with a fun atmosphere. The burgers are delicious and the coleslaw is to die for. I recommend this restaurant to all who stay at my hotel. It is an excellent place and the staff are incredibly friendly.

We stopped here after a hike in Shenadoah National Park. As the name implies it has an Irish Pub motif and an Irish Pub menu. We both got hamburgers and they were delicious. The beer selection is decent and wine is served also. The tables are spread out for private conversation and the wait staff is excellent.

The house got unusually slammed on a late wed. Afternoon, but our waitress and barmaid hustled the whole time to keep us happy. And the burgers were great and cooked to perfection.

We certainly enjoyed our dinner at Molly's. This quaint restaurant/pub in the heart of downtown Warrenton was a perfect ending to our day of exploring the beautiful region. The Chicken Pot Pie was delicious, although not typical of this staple offering. It was a generous portion of diced chicken and vegetables topped by a round flaky puff. My dinner mate... More

Molly's is a fun place on the weekends and a great place for lunch anytime. They usually have live music. The food is very good and they have a very friendly staff. Their Shepard's Pie is a must try!

We've only sat at the bar the times we ate and the service was excellent, the food was very good and the beer was cold. They have an expansive beer selection, so you're sure to find what you want. One of my English friends said there fish and chips was one of the best he's had in America. I tried... More

You must try Molly's grilled cheese sandwich and soup (tomato or potato), I have on several occasions and they are the best. Reuben is also delicious. I like the atmosphere during the afternoon. (I'm too old to go at night because that time belongs to the young.). Food, service, and atmosphere are the old town downtown best. Give Molly's a... More

Molly's never disappoints on the food or service. Very good burger, fries, appetizers, beer, and the staff is usually super friendly and attentive. Kids are welcome. The place is on the small side. They have some good happy hour specials in late afternoon to early evening ( not sure exact times) Wednesday is half price burgers all day....LOVE IT! I... More

Molly's is a authentic Irish Pub. Open mike night is a treat. Wednesday's special is half price burgers. Their beef burgers are the best on an incredible bun- a mushroom burger is available. I love the fries. Stop in for a taste of Ireland with good o' fauquier hospitality. Darts are an option.

Molly's is exactly what it claims to be-a pub! If you are wanting a quiet dinner out with the hubby, choose another place. The atmosphere here is jovial and noisy and frenetic. People are having draft beer at the bar-it's a pub! While I prefer quieter places to eat, I come here for the fish and chips-they are hot, greasy... More
