    Service was a little slow but totally understandable, but I put a special note under this website for dairy free, which maybe wasn't read or received. After a few mess ups, everything was finally great as always.

    The noise level was pretty high for the amount of people there. I was disappointed that there was no "daily special" entree available. I always ordered the daily special in past visits.

    A gem hidden a tiny rural town. Worth the drive! Excellent craft cocktails and food that you usually cannot get outside of an urban area. We are foodies and this is our fav place in the area.

    We were seated next to the door....very uninspiring location. The noise level was as bad as a sports bar with outrageous fans yelling. We couldn't hear one another or our servers! We chose Molly's for the celebration of our 50th anniversary. It was disappointing.

    Molly's is one of those out of the gems you have to visit. From the minute you walk in to this old style building that is been updated in a unique way! The entire team is all there to help make your evening a special one. They have a wonderful selection of special cocktails that rotate along with a short wine list. The salads really are fabulous and big enough for two to share ; for us they are the highlight of our visits. The entree list is limited with something sure to please everyone. Meat;Chicken Fish you have your choice and Gluten Free is no problem here. Now is you have room for one of their scrumptious dessert Go For It share and your evening will be complete. All staff are genuinely so kind and have a great personalities such a refreshing treat these days. We especially love Shannon she has been our "gal" for a long time prior to Moll's too!! Thanks all of you for a fabulous Birthday evening see you again soon!!!

    Food and service was excellent as usual. I managed to screw up the reservation and only made it for 2 but we actually had 4! The manager was able to make some changes and was able to get a comfortable table for 4.
