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.
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
The meals were wonderful, as always. We all had different entrees- chicken pot pie, short rib burger, lobster roll, mahi-mahi & Caesar salad. The view of the river & boats was beautiful.
Great time..gorgeous view...great friendly service.
I had the worst experience at the molly pitcher. I came for my mothers birthday to have brunch for a party of four. When we sat down and I suggested a mimosa for my mother the waitress said “oh no I do not have time for any mimosas”. This is not something you say to a customer. When we got our food it was cold. The eggs, french toast, and potatoes COLD. The french toast was supposed to come with a berry compote, she never gave us any. Just four pieces of cold bread on a plate with a strawberry. When we asked for a small spoon for the cappuccino she rolled her eyes and sighed. I have never experienced something so terrible. She vented every time she got to our table about how busy she is because she didnt want to be bothered with anything. I was so upset that this was the experience my mother got on her birthday when I tried to take her to a well known and classy brunch.
We really enjoyed our experience at the Molly Pitcher Inn. Our reservation was ready right on time. Service was excellent and we were not rushed
Time to enjoy the meal and the beautiful scenery. We will definitely return.
Service & view were great. Scallops were great, Salmon a tad overcooked, but peach dessert was like eating hard candy. Should check the fruit before putting them in dessert
We’ve had great experiences at Molly Pitcher before this, but this was very disappointing. Despite COVID, they didn’t need to be so spartan. No tablecloths. No bread. Paper napkins. Lamb chops that didn’t taste like lamb. My scallops was ho-hum. Oh, and a rather limited menu.
What a beautiful night. Celebrating my husband’s birthday.
Atmosphere, Food , & Company Excellent!
A very nice place for dinner , especially if the weather is nice. Service was excellent and the food was enjoyed by all.
Excellent service. Lobster roll outstanding. Shrimp cocktail (4) for $15, not worth it.
Drinks amazing. Would recommend
We had a great day on the patio. We enjoyed the cocktails, and the food. The service was great. Definitely coming back. Can’t wait for indoor dining to resume. The restaurant and bar are beautiful
We could not have been more pleased. Our table was overlooking the pool with a beautiful view of the Navesink.
We lucked out because we had music thanks to an event that was taking place outdoors. Our waiter was excellent. Friendly and always checking in on us.. We had the chicken pot pie which my husband loves and I had the scallops which were delic. My only disappointment was the cerviche appetizer. Just wasn't up to my liking. I ate it but i would not order again.
I can't wait to do it again.
Love Molly Pitcher. Had my wedding here and it was fantastic. Love the piano bar for a drink or quick bite
Sleeping accommodations are excellent. Food and atomosphere wonderful. Love sitting outside for lunch.
Food = amazing. However, it took 1.5 hours to come out. Each simple drink order (martini & lemonade) took 20 minutes to come out. 15 min to sit at a table that was open the whole time. 20 minutes to get our initial order. Waiter was clearly overwhelmed and under qualified. Recommendation only for the food. The hostess was very sweet and also overwhelmed. Everything else needs to be drastically improved.
Perfect afternoon at Molly! Gorgeous views amazing service lovely food. We can't wait to return.
We had a lovely dinner at the Molly Pitcher on Wednesday night. The weather was perfect
and the service was excellent. I had the lobster roll and my husband had the fish and chips. Our friends had the scallops and the short rib burger. Everyone enjoyed their meals! I would recommend this restaurant for its ambiance and great food.
We enjoyed our visit - and plan to do it again soon
first time I have been to a restaurant since conv19 was very pleased did not feel threaten at all. Watched them clean tables after people left
Beautiful location and view and ambiance. Food was very, very, good....Salmon entree and Chicken Pot Pie. Service was OK. Would return though because The Molly Pitcher is consistent in quality of food.
Nice dining area outside overlooking the Navasink River. Tables were spaced out and given an extra cleaning so Covid concerns were minimal. Large umbrellas kept us in the shade- (needed on a hot summer day). Good food and service. Had a very enjoyable meal.
The food was great, seating was wonderful during these difficult times and the service was outstanding!!!
A phenomenal meal because of a spectacular waitress. Ashley went above and beyond to make our two children feel welcome. She was kind and gracious. It was a beautiful night under the tent. So happy we chose this location to spend our anniversary!
