Molly’s Place offers artisanal fresh made cocktails, MS and a few other craft beers, a selection of wonderful wines from the Biltmore Estate Wine Company. Our food, however, brings the entire experience together. Delicious, house made small plates including the top selling Sesame Seared Filet of Ahi Tuna and other favorites the Cast Iron Smashburger, our signature Crawfish Cakes, and more.
Named for owner Deborah Bailey’s mother Molly, who flew with the Women’s Air Force Service Pilots in WWII, our tiny space evokes a bygone time, with cocktail classics and aviation mementos that also remind us of Grenada’s great and underused airport, where thousands of pilots trained during that same war.
And —- we are growing our roster of musicians, playing live. Come see us. And meet your new friends. More
