A pleasure to dine in Molly Pitcher. Our server, Susan, was wonderful. My group of friends have had Susan a few times when dining at Molly Pitcher and she was very accommodating
Great staff. Beautiful view
Service was awesome (thanks Matt!) Food was delicious as always. Chicken pot pie, fried chicken, scallops, burger... great food. Ambiance, well, your over looking the water...
Great place for lunch. My Eggs Benedict was perfect as was my granddaughter's quiche. My wife's lobster roll was very good but not perfect. The views of the Navesink can't be beat.
The food, views and service were fantastic - thank you for a great experience!
Lovely venue, awesome views of the river. Food is good.
It was a beautiful day! The weather was great the ambience outside was beautiful with the umbrellas in the view and the lunch was fabulous as always.
Everything was perfect! Food was delicious! Yan is an excellent waiter!
Mothers 87th birthday
Beautiful outdoor patio. Food was tasty- portions decent but was pricey.
Friday night at the Molly Pitcher was wonderful! We were celebrating a 77th birthday and enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere! Our waiter was terrific and attentive. The scallops were delicious, the pot pie very good, mahi mahi and the fish and chips were all delicious! I would highly recommend coming here for a special occasion or for dinner any time.
A lovely afternoon and also felt safe as far as social distancing and separation of tables, etc. Food is always good and the view was beautiful!
The restaurant water view is gorgeous. Inside feels classical with crystal chandeliers, beautiful carpet, victorian molding and even a grand piano by the bar section. The waiter was attentive the service was excellent. The menus is simple American fare in an upscale dinning experience. Presentation was great, one star was deducted for the heavy heat on many of the ingredient on some dishes, as you can see in the photos (carrots, scallops). We will be back again to see if this was just a one time mishap on the chefs part.
Everything was so fresh and beautifully served!
Very nice looking hotel/restaurant. The room was cold because the door to the outdoor dining keep opening and closing It was a windy day but this should be taken into consideration when customers are dining indoors .
No bread offered at the table We ordered the scallops for $32.00 and no vegetable or starch came with the entree
We were so looking forward to eating lunch outdoors at the Molly Pitcher Inn. We were meeting friends there who had not been there before. What a disaster. Was beautiful but windy. We asked if the table umbrella could be opened. The hostess said she would check and never came back. We sat for a full half hour before the server came near us to take a drink order. It was not extremely busy. Then the drinks never came. We saw her bringing drinks to other tables that were seated after us. I went inside to use the restrooms and saw what clearly were our drinks sitting on the bar. I turned around and found the server and pointed this out. She said - I'm getting to it... Went downhill from there. Food was ok. Service terrible.
Beautiful view, nice menu, good food. Glad we came.
The facility, menu, staff and food were all five star. We will return again.
Drinks were fantastic. Dinner (mahi mahi and lobster were both shockingly bland)
Jorge provided excellent service. The view of the Navesink is spectacular. The appetizers were especially scrumptious
The food was no great shakes. The food was very plain. The view was lovely. I’ve lived in town for 31 years and finally decided to try the restaurant. I’m glad we came.
Excellent food, view and service.
Wonderful pre-anniversary dinner. Our server was Jorge and he did a wonderful job. The ambiance was perfect although it did get a little chilly. The food choices were amazing. Although we've stayed here a few times, we have never had dinner. My husband and I were very impressed. We had dinner the following night as well. Perfect!
As always everything was great.Missed coming there due to the virus. Great to be back! Thank you. And Nelson was great!
The MPI patio has been our go to place all summer.
Did a nice job, all things considered, chicken pot pie still the best.
Great ambience, beautiful river views, terrific food and attentive service
Beautiful location and good food
The food was delicious! Haven’t had stuffed zucchini flowers in ages, they were fabulous! As well as all our other food. Service was great! We had the BEST server, Nelson. Can’t say enough good things about him. He was attentive, humorous & made our special night out the best we could have asked for. Happy with all the staff.
Beautiful view under a tent for warmth. Romantic, impressive service and just what we hoped for going back to the Molly.
Beautiful scenic views and ambience right on Navesink river tables spaced great
Very nice dining experience a d extremely relaxing!
We dined outside for lunch. The lobster roll was delicious and the service was excellent. Highly recommend
First time dining. Great service, great food. I felt safe and comfortable with the socially distanced tables. And of course the view!
Beautiful setting, great ambiance, perfect for a romantic evening.
We were seated promptly upon arrival and the table was in a great spot to enjoy the
beautiful scenery. The waiter took our order for drinks and water witch we got withing
10 minutes. Perfect start to what was promising to be a great experience, except the minute went by before we were able to place our appetizers order. Not 5, or 10 or 20,
but 40 minutes later, famished and now thirsty since our drinks were finished a list 20 minutes earlier, i stopped a server and asked for some bread and to please get our waiter so we could place our food order. He said the restaurant had no bread but that he would get our waiter. We finally order food, which took what seemed to be forever to arrive, and were totally disappointed by the quality, test and most of all by the fact that it arrived cold and dry, as if it was sitting in the kitchen for a long while.
I highly recommend spending an evening there if you want to enjoy the ambiance and have a few drinks. Make sure you eat before you go.
Food and ambiance always good at the Molly Pitcher Inn. Service has been very slow though the past two recent visits.
Poor outdoor setup next to a very loud wedding slow sevice no ambience at all.
Everything was very nice. Nelson was personable and professional. Beautiful night with beautiful views
We were celebrating our anniversary and had a very nice time. Beautiful view from the terrace
