    Mollys is an outstanding restaurant tucked away in a small town. I highly recommend making reservations and sit and enjoy the hand made pasta or fresh drinks!

    Had been through Mt. Carroll, IL many times on our way to/from WI but always at a time/day Molly's wasn't open. Planned our last trip to return when it was & enjoyed a wonderful meal & a great staff. Definitely be back & highly recommend!

    We ate outside on the patio. It's very nice; They have big heaters in case it gets cold. We had drinks, and shrimp for appetizers; their shrimp are huge and cooked perfectly. And Molly's knows exactly how to cook salmon! Delicious, with Brussels sprouts and roasted potatoes. Dessert was an unusual butternut squash cheesecake with pecans on top, which was delicious. The service is outstanding. The waitstaff are very nice and knowledgeable. We've been going to Molly's for eight years, since they opened, and the food is always delicious.

    Everything was great, we are looking forward to returning and trying some of the other menu items. There are great vegetarian options, the meal was perfectly paced (we ordered a few courses to share), and the service was friendly & knowledgeable with each staff interaction.

    I always have a wonderful meal at Mollys. Love that the food is prepared fresh. It’s so refreshing having a place to eat that isn’t bar food. The Martinis are so so good, as well as the deserts.

    My husband and I are camping in Mt. Carroll, IL this weekend and needed a low maintenance camping weekend.Mt. Carroll is a small, quaint town with amazing views, tiny shops and a quick drive to either the Mississippi River or Galena. We were not expecting much from their food scene. Holy smokes, we underestimated our decision to grab dinner in town. Molly's did not disappoint! In fact, I would drive out here again for the food and the camping 😉 Our waitress, Jamie was outstanding. Her recommendations were on point, service was exceptional, she had a great personality and she heard Mike checking out the bourbon and already knew what he wanted. Cocktails… on point with all scratch syrups. The food… outstanding. Pasta from scratch, beautiful presentation, incredibly balanced flavors without anything trying to fight for center stage… and they have an in-house pastry chef who knows a thing or two about ice cream and pistachio tarts 😉 Come for the camping, or the scenic views along the Mississippi, or take a detour south of Galena. But you gotta check this place out.
