The Molly Pitcher Inn prides itself not only in its fine dining menu but also its service and atmosphere. It is an ideal setting for that special occasion or just an elegant dining experience.

    My bad for not checking, but MP no longer does the awesome Sunday buffets unless it's a holiday. We used to go with friends every year, at this time. Instead it's a sit down Ala cart menu which is ok however our food took forever. Almost 2 hrs. Thank goodness we ordered a cheese tray We were told by the waiter delay is because of the person who ordered salmon well done. When her food came salmon was raw inside. The waiter while pleasant possibly had a hearing problem as we had to repeat things over and over. He also didn't know what dishes came with what. No special requests could be made. (Ie no onions in potatoes) . Our $18 Croque Madame came with nothing no home fries, No sides. We asked for fruit so we did have that. In the end we wanted coffee and dessert but he informed us it could take time because the bar was swamped. ( may have been a private event?) We did get dessert but he came over to say 2 lattes and an espresso coffee couldn't be made at all for us I'm sorry to say service and food (just average for all 5 of us) has seriously declined here.

    Service was very slow and the food was not nearly the same quality that we had experienced in previous visits. For these prices, the food should be the centerpiece of a great meal, not the boat anchor.

    Charmingly decorated for the holidays and our waitstaff were courteous, we enjoyed our meal. Excellent coffee and wine list very nice. Food was good to just fine. Their strength is the main protein (e.g., delicious salmon, gorgeous seafood chowder with generous bites of lobster) but could upgrade significantly the sides and garnishes (e.g. vegetables looked like warmed up package of frozen, fruit was tired.) Breads should be served hot or at least warmed and butter should be soft.

    Overall it was very good. The view , service and drinks very good. A little pricey but it was restaurant week so good value. My only complaint is when I ask how your steak is cooked based on the chef have an idea how to direct me. I don’t like rare steak. Shoot me steak lovers, but, tell me how to order when I tell you what I want. Gracious about taking it back but no fun waiting while your food is cooked the way you asked.

    Really nice experience. Nelson our waiter was outstanding personality and knowledgeable about food and drink. We had a table overlooking the water which provided inspiration for engaging conversation and brainstorming. The property itself was well kept Federal style with great ambiance. I ordered the Filet which was cooked to perfection. Highly recommend. -W-<

    The Molly Pitcher holds many wonderful childhood memories when we would drive down from North Jersey to spend the day at the shore and have a lovely meal at MP. Renovations have made the place and views even more beautiful. I stopped with a girlfriend to have brunch and was not disappointed. We both tried the Short Rib Benedict, which was an unexpected treat, as the meat was flavorful and tender. It was served with home fries and a small fruit salad. We shared the hot Apple crisp for deserts, which was loaded with apple slices and topped with gelato. I must say their cold brew coffee is fabulous too! All in all a lovely dining experience.

    Classic brunch with great view of the river. Food was well prepared, good selection for brunch (classic menu) and there was a lunch option as well. The building is from the early 20th century and fun to visit. Noise level was quiet enough to actually have a conversation. Recommend.

    One of my Bridge Ladies favorite spots! Food always good, service as well although I didn't get my last cup of coffee as I asked, but their Chicken Pot Pie made up for it! Love being by the water, the view is fantastic and the menu varied for all tastes.

    I am always reluctant to order fish because it takes the expertise of a fine chef in order to have the fish not over or undercooked. The grilled scallops were extraordinary! Great taste and prepared just right!

    The food wasn’t particularly good and unfortunately, the service was awful. Our waitress seemed annoyed to be working…and it was slow. So it wasn’t like she had many tables to focus on. She dropped our check halfway through the meal and was frustrated we ordered a second round of mimosas.
