first time at Mollys and chose the smash burgers and they didn't disappoint.
Definitely will go back. So relaxing and great service. The quality of the food is way above any dining experience in the area. Mt. Carroll has a treasure of a restaurant.

We were going to the Timber Lake Playhouse and decided to try "Molly's" for dinner as we had heard positive comments from friends. I'm allergic to onions so our waiter confirmed with the chef the items that I could safely eat. I had the teriyaki salmon over sticky rice and my husband had the pork shank and both were excellent. We also had the hummingbird cake which was awesome! We really enjoyed our dinner and didn't feel rushed at all. The hostess and waiter staff were very professional and made for a wonderful date night!!!

The menu was a minimal but excellent variety of foods. Food was served hot and delicious. A very good night out for our family of four.

This is a hidden gem in a small town. Great menu and the food was outstanding. If you want something high quality and great drinks/wine this is the spot. Great date spot with your wife or dinner with your hunting buddy (minus the camo).

It is nice to visit and eat at such a warm, friendly restaurant. The food is presented well and always delicious. It’s the kind of space that promotes lively conversation and gives the feeling of being somewhere special. Thanks to Molly’s crew for your attentive service!

This small town gem rivals any upscale restaurant in downtown Chicago and when you consider the price, it makes this place even more special. And don't forget the specialty cocktails, they are simply the best and each one is as good, or better, than the next.

A friend recommended Molly's and we were not disappointed.
The Ben's Bread with herbal olive oil and whipped butter was so good we took a loaf home.
For the main course we choose The Salmon Teriyaki Bowl.
Fantastic flavor combinatio with crispy brussels sprouts and sticky rice.
We will be back!

Another delicious meal at Molly's. My husband had the Salmon teriyaki bowl, delicious! I had the pork carnitas tostado - yummy! We had ordered a the romaine wedge to share, but the main meal was too much, so it will be our delicious lunch today. We did , however, save room to share, (between 4 of us), the toasted lemon turmeric cake (very different and interesting) and the crowd favorite, chocolate brownie cookie with vanilla bean ice cream.
We are so lucky to have such a fine restaurant so close! Kudos to Molly's once again!

Drinks were delicious! The homemade pasta was outstanding - cooked perfectly. The veggie burger was all about veggies (rather attempting to taste like meat) - it was awesome. This was the best restaurant meal I have had in a long time!
