Lovely view, delicious breakfast. They have some very creative items. Having it served beautifully on white table cloths and with good silverware always makes spending a bit more for breakfast a good value for me.

The ambiance is elegant. I love the fact that there are still some restaurants like this, if I want to be able to hear the conversation my friends and I are having. Not too many quite this classy. The waiter, Nelson, is a professional and was in excellent humor. It was lovely, the food was beautiful as well as delicious. I took a photo of my scallops, but all the dishes were presented beautifully. There was also plenty of food.

Had a lovely dinner for my Fiancé’s bday. Even managed to surprise him with dessert. Everything was delicious but my fiancé mentioned his steak was a little tough. Aside from that everything was excellent. Even managed to accommodate my fussy 6 and 9 yr old kids.

A good restaurant experience requires a lot of pieces to fall together. The Molly Pitcher knows how to provide a wonderful experience. The service is excellent, our server Haille (sorry if I spelled it wrong) was probably the best I have had in any restaurant in NJ.

The food was very good we had the Tilefish and the Scallops with the Crab Cakes and Burrata Salad as appetizers both very good. The menu is relatively small and its a seasonal menu so it may not have enough selections for some but what we had was excellent

The view of the river is very nice and you are not rushed, this is dining rather then eating dinner

The restaurant is a bit priier then many but not out of line with the quality provided. We will certainly be back because there are things on the menu we would like to try

While the atmosphere and staff were wonderful and the food was presented very well, both of our dishes were not up to par; the veal chop, ordered medium, was very dry (over cooked) and the beef short ribs were dry and not as tasty as should be.

The service was perfect. We were not rushed to order our meal and were able to have a conversation while enjoying a pre dinner cocktail.
The entrees were served after we finished our appetizer. We were not rushed.
The dishes were not only creative but delicious. I had a lamb shank that was stripped of the meat and served asa pot pie.

Celebrated a friend's birthday with lunch at the Molly Pitcher - quiet, elegant, overlooking the Navesink River. Good wait staff, food was good - I am a vegetarian so they made a special meal for me.
Can't say enough good things if you're looking for a quiet, intimate setting. We were able to sit and talk for as long as we wanted and really had a great afternoon.

This is one of our favorite special occasion places to go. On our anniversary last year we even stayed over night and it was lovely. The dinners are wonderful and the breakfast was exceptional.. The beauty of sitting near the river and dining in such a lovely place is always enjoyable. This is our 5th time there and we will certainly be back.

The atmosphere is lovely and if you get there by 11:30-12, you can get a table by the window. Actually, the view through the large windows is beautiful from any table.
We started with Manhattan clam chowder which was very good. Next we had chicken pot pie which was delicious. Lunch was quite relaxing and we’d definitely return.

We were all very disappointed with the extremely limited menu. We arrived at 6:20 PM and were told they were out of duck already, which left 8 entrees to choose from. We asked that the manager come to the table, which he did, but was not very accommodating at all, plus he NEVER came back to the table to check on us. Extremely disappointing evening all around. Soup was tasteless and veal shank disappointing. Not worth $305.00 for 4 people

Our previous dining experiences had been favorable. We chose to return for dinner to celebrate my birthday. My wife is on a limited diet and has enjoyed the sea scallops in the past. She was disappointed to learn that they we no longer on the menu even though they are listed on the web page menu. The only other dish she could eat was the roasted chicken. Not very festive to say the least. I ordered my favorite, the sea food pot pie. When it was served it contained scallops!?! Very disappointed. We feel we paid a lot of money for broiled chicken rather than the "unavailable" scallops. We won't be returning. Also, we were one of only three tables occupied during dinner. One waiter and one bus person. We waited 30 minutes for our meal to be served.

Fantastic experience. Start with a drink at the fabulous wood paneled bar and listen to the piano player. Warm and cozy atmosphere. Enter the beautiful dinning room with full water views and classic decor and sit at a not overly crowded table. Service was professional and attentive. Food was excellent continental cuisine at decent value. We had squash ravioli, pork belly, split a baby kale salad , duck and short ribs for entree, two drinks, cappuccino and great dessert for $150 with white gloves service. We are lucky to have such a place this close to our home as opposed to driving all he way into NYC.

The Molly Pitcher Inn Restaurant is a rare find in NJ. It is located in a very well maintained and elegant hotel. And the restaurant is excellent: the ambience beautiful, the service so classy and the food was extremely delicious. Our server Johnathon was the best!
My group of 8 went there for our seasonal get together and were very happy with all features of the restaurant. We ordered different dishes, including the three course special, and we all agreed it is definitely a restaurant to revisit.

We went during restaurant week so our meals were a good value for us. Service and food were excellent. My only complaint was that there was no chocolate dessert on the prix fix menu. I noticed that the regular menu is very limited, there is also a bar menu.
