A word from The Dining Room - Molly Pitcher Inn
The Molly Pitcher Inn prides itself not only in its fine dining menu but also its service and atmosphere. It is an ideal setting for that special occasion or just an elegant dining experience. Under the crystal chandeliers of our Dining Room, we serve some the most tantalizing cuisine in all of New Jersey. Our panoramic windows provide a truly breathtaking vista. No matter what season or time of day, the quiet stillness of the Navesink River envelops all who dine here.
Our famed Sunday Brunch has been the proud recipient of the Asbury Park Press, Readers’ Choice Award for Best Brunch since 1996. The Brunch is available Sundays from October through mid-June. On Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas we offer a seasonal and more extensive Brunch for our guests to celebrate their special holidays; reservations are required.

Diner Reviews
  • "The food ok, but they almost lost my credid card and they never say sorry. They got me upset so I forgat my present and when I did came back in 1 hour they told me the box was empty so they just trow the box away. It's lie , my present was a money, gold, lipstick from Victoria Secret and A/X scarf that was very expensive present because I had 8 people with me for dinner. They still didn't return me anything and no calls, I try to call them and I think they don't think how important that box for me. Unprofessional workers there, I don't think I can't trust them again with my credit card and....or come back to this restaurant:("

  • "We stayed at the hotel and were travel-weary, so were happy to find an excellent restaurant on premises. We met friends for drinks in the beautiful bar and then met other friends later for an excellent dinner. As we had not seen either set of friends in a long time, it was nice to find a quiet spot to talk. Our meal was very good and the staff attentive and nice. A great place."

  • "My husband & I usually dine at the lounge, but for fathers Day I made reservations in the dining room. I now believe that the lounge menu is better as far as quantity of food. Yes the food was very tasty but the portion was small especially the vegetables. I had to ask for a second serving which was still a small serving. I suggest that they don't fancy cut the vegetables, but give larger portions. OK so the meat & fish were reasonable size. As always the Molly is very relaxing ,enjoyable, and the scenic view is just great."

  • "Is only one part of a great dinner here. The staff is amazingly attenttive and friendly. The food was delicious and nicely presented. We went with friends before a show at the iconic Count Basie theatre... it is a 10 minute stroll from the restaurant to the theatre. I have lived in the area for many years and this was my first time at the Molly Pitcher. It was a good choice."

  • "We were celebrating my daughter's graduate school graduation! We had a table by the window, and it looked out over the water. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and a perfect spot for a special occasion! We were there for lunch. Appetizers, soup and salads were our starters. We each had a different entree. Everyone enjoyed their food! Highly recommend and can't wait to return!"

  • "As part of our Dinner Club one couple must choose a restaurant that the other two couples have not been to. It was our turn to pick and we decided to go back to The Molly Pitcher where we had our wedding some 27 years ago. Though I was a little concerned because I had only been there previously for either a Wedding or Banquet. Needless to say no one in Our Group this past weekend was disappointed with our choice for dinner. Everything was excellent right down to the desserts, and the view from our table was great as well!"

  • "During my last visit I arranged two, business meetings, one at lunch and thereafter at the bar. The food and service are excellent. I can't say enough good about the Molly Pitcher Inn. I happened to hold an amazing wedding reception there last November 30th. Everything at the Molly Pitcher Inn is first-class as are the management and staff. As I walked though the lobby one of the staff members who had taken room service to my room, who's name I could sadly not recall, said "hello" I said hello back and he said "I remember you from the wedding, you were in room ..." He later said with a big smile that it was his one-year anniversary of working at the Molly Pitcher that day. You can't buy that pride, you create it! "

  • "It was so nice to have delicous food, served attentively while taking in the beautiful scenary of the Navesink River. We didn't have to yell over unnecsssary Muzak or stuggle for elbow room with a table that was set too close to ours. The spacious and serene dining room lend themselves well to a gracious dining experience."

Service was not as good as this place deserves. Waiter took our order and the rest of the service came from a disinterested wait staff. Had to constantly ask for bread butter water etc."

  • "We started a quiet family mid-week dinner with spicy & sweet Bloody Mary oyster shots and a warm and herbed butternut squash soup - perfectly seasoned. Entrees of cut-with-a-butter-knife short ribs w/ scallion risotto, comfort food chicken pot pie, and rigatoni with chicken sausage were all perfectly prepared and seasoned. Desserts appealed to the chocoholic with gooey chocolate lava cake, crackle-topped creme brulee and an apple cobbler perfectly balanced with fruit, oats & brown sugar. Fantastic food, excellent attentive service and a relaxed atmosphere on a weeknight!"

My wife had the seafood pot pie, which was served in a flaky puff pastry. The shrimp and scallops were in a delicious bisque sauce. The surprise was the sesame crabmeat with wasabi appetizer, which was perfect. A wonderful place for a celebration, or for a special night out."

  • "Went to Sunday brunch with a group of friends this weekend and we chose Molly Pitcher Inn for the beautiful views of the Navesink River. We were pleasantly surprised that the food at the buffet was actually pretty good.It is a large buffet with omelet , crepe, waffle, and carving stations and the buffet area does get very crowded because they seat everyone at the same time-either 11am or 1:30. But on the other hand, you don't have to worry about walking into a brunch buffet that has already been picked over. Get there 15 minutes early at least so that you are seated first- then you won't have to wait on the omelet or carving station lines. Any of the tables have a beautiful view of the river ."

  • "This was our second year at Molly Pitcher for Christmas Eve and I have to say that our first visit the year before was better. It wasn't as crowded so the service was better and certainly, the drinks were better! We had a fill in waiter that wasn't familiar with the restaurant so we never received a "drink" menu for various choices of martinis. The ones we did order were not good so that started our evening off on the wrong foot. The food is always good and the atmosphere, beautiful!"

  • "This was our family's second time at the Molly Pitcher this year. It's a wonderful restaurant for sharing a special occasion, and the waterfront view is beautiful any time of year. The menu selection offered a variety of fine dining choices, and our party of six enjoyed each flavorable dish served. The presentation was well done- particularly the Seafood Pot Pie. The chef sent our table a complimentary wasabi crab salad taster which was an unexpected and lovely treat as well. The service was attentive, knowledgeable, and friendly. I would highly recommend the Molly Pitcher for a special night out. We were not disappointed, and look forward to our next visit!"
