The menu always contains new items as well as old favorites. Preparation is superb. Service is always competent and considerate if not always prompt. The view of the Navesink is great. Spacing of tables is such to make for comfortable dining. The experience is well worth the price.

Despite the fact that I live around the area and have driven pass Molly Pitcher a zillion times, this was my first patronage to this historic Inn. We went for lunch on this past Christmas Eve, (actually it's better to avoid the dinner crowd and the service tardiness) there is nothing negative to say about this place. The view from the dinning room towards Navesink River is second to none, even though dinning out on the deck is prohibitively cold and the landscape lacks the greenery of other seasons. The food is sumptuous and adequate; I ordered the American Chowder and Lobster Roll and between the two, I guess I was served the equivalent of two lobster meat. My sister order the Skirt Steak and it was tasty and cooked just right. After the meal we walked around a bit to take in the ambience of this old English style Inn. I do recommend this place and is worth a visit.

Came to Molly Pitcher Inn at suggestion of cousins who live in Red Bank - and they joined us for brunch on Sunday. We all enjoyed our food - especially the sausages.
Coffee was very good although the milk pitcher dribbled -we all had difficulty pouring milk into our coffee cleanly.
I had a couple of other quibbles: 1) the toast was not warm enough to melt butter when it reached us; 2) the hash browns amount seemed skimpy. The table service was friendly and helpful….and the view was lovely.

The hostess could not have been more accommodating when I requested a corner table to assist a hearing impaired guest at our table. She was wonderful and started the evening by making us feel taken care of.

Ultimately the seafood risotto saved the experience. Very loud space, service not so great but not sure if that was due to backup in the kitchen? Entrees took an hour to come out after salads, but one entree was so spot on it saved the day. The chicken was supposed to be stuffed with spinach and cheese but seemed to be stuffed with…stuffing? Table of two and bizarrely our bread basket was comprised of a single roll. Even when we asked for more bread; another single roll would be furnished.

We had a wonderful time at the Molly Pitcher Inn last night after a showing of the Nutcracker- it was a perfect way to end the night. The food was delicious and our waitress, Virginia, was incredible- she was attentive, kind, and answered all of our questions. We love the Molly Pitcher Inn now.

George provided beyond perfect service. Cheese plate was a great appetizer. Salmon with creamed leeks and lentils and roasted chicken were all cooked perfect. Red wine Risotto with the chicken was just ok.

The Molly Pitcher Inn, being a land mark, follows the tradition of the season. Brightly decorated and river views is one of the reasons all tables were occupied by happy faces at lunch time. Food and service were, as usual, very good. Can't go wrong if seeking a dining experience with special touches.

Service great. Food sub par. Shrimp was great, but sausage stuffing was 95% bread with one Nickle sized piece of sausage - which was tasteless. Carrots dry. Disappointed. The pie for dessert? Couldn’t cut crust. Hard and dry. With tip paid $180 for 2 person meal. This was Thanksgiving dinner. Of course location was great. Rest rooms clean and well appointed. Parking adequate.

We had a wonderful dinner with my newly engaged daughter and her fiance. Everyone enjoyed their meal from the cheese board starter, the pasta carbonara to the perfect ending of creme brulee! The service was very good and we will be sure to return.

Food was good not great - fire alarm goes off in middle of dinner all had to leave dinning room. Let back in but never told what happened. No one covered food or offered to heat it. Waiter was slow I asked what was the problem and his answer was we don't want to rush you. I said thanks but it's been a long time and we would like our food. We observed he seemed to be the only waiter for over 10 tables.
