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. Under the crystal chandeliers of our Dining Room, we serve some the most tantalizing cuisine in all of New Jersey. Our panoramic windows provide a truly breathtaking vista. No matter what season or time of day, the quiet stillness of the Navesink River envelops all who dine here.
Our famed Sunday Brunch has been the proud recipient of the Asbury Park Press, Readers’ Choice Award for Best Brunch since 1996. The Brunch is available Sundays from October through mid-June. On Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas we offer a seasonal and more extensive Brunch for our guests to celebrate their special holidays; reservations are required.

Excellent food and service but the lights were a bit too bright.

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

Food preparations were beyond the chef's skills. Lamb shank presentation was ambitious , but awkward

My husband and I invited dear friends to be our guests for dinner; as always, everything was perfect....great atmosphere, great views, great service, great libations and an absolutely delicious meal! We have enjoyed the Molly on many occasions including our son’s wedding, countless business affairs, dining with friends or romantic evenings for the two of us! This historic gem continues to satisfy and delight no matter what the occasion!

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 food is just not very good, please get a new chef and change the menu, it's been the same for years.
