“Mother's Day Brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

Have come here the past two years for Mother's Day brunch and have really enjoyed it.
Great selection, nice atmosphere. Really cool outdoor seating area.

For brunch I really enjoyed the shrimp and the carving station was very nice.

The free mimosa was an awesome plus!
Was not overly busy- making it a great secret spot for Mother's Day brunch.

“Party on the river”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This outstanding and well priced operation was a total surprise. Very large with two outside patios. Views of the river are perfect as is the food. The portion are generous and staff most accommodating. Can't wait to visit again - SOON! Great beer and Hard cider collection.

Great spot for dinner if you like seafood. Lovely view of the river. Enjoyed watching the boats and kayakers cruise by. Bloody Mary was delicious! Super awesome Shrimp and delicious Crab Rangoon!

“Excellent food, service and atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

Awesome time at Molly Cools! We hit the weather just right so we were able to walk the riverwalk before our reservation. Walked a bit and enjoyed happy hour at a nearby pub! Our reservations were on a Friday night at 7pm, table was ready and the server was prompt. We enjoyed the stuffed grouper, scallops and grilled salmon. All of the dishes were excellent and there was plenty of food. We will return! Plenty of outdoor seating if the weather ever warms up!

“Great seafood and craft beers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

This restaurant has really good seafood but it also serves other things. I especially love the lobster tails and the scallops. The sushi rolls are great and there are 8 big pieces...perfect for sharing. They take reservations so you can ask for a table along the windows that look out over the river. There is outside patio seating for when the weather is nice. The restaurant is only a few blocks from the Bradley Center so it is a perfect place to eat before attending an event there.
