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.

I had hoped for better food... it was to average for the money. Service was good but only 3 tables were filled...
Why ask if it’s an occasion on the open table form???
It was an Anniversary... so???
Happy Hour at the bar is a better deal

Service was terrific. Only flaw was in the reservation I asked to not be seated at the window and the hostess took us to a window table. When I asked to move she was very accommodating.

The food was terrible and the waiters were confused and brought us the wrong drink, wrong order, and seemed unorganized. The best item I had with my dinner was my cappuccino. Although the view of the water is beautiful, the befuddled service and lack luster food were not worth the price.

This was the Valentines prix fix menu. The meal was good, but not great. The dessert however was very disappointing. Vaguely cute for Valentines Day, but much less than the quality of an average bakery at best. For the occasion and the meal the dessert left you feeling let down.

Very disappointed in quality of meal. My beet salad had no flavor at all, not any sweetness. The Lobster cocktail was average very small pieces. Five in our party ordered the filet mignon, the most expensive dish on the menu, I might add. It tasted very bland not at all up to a meat lovers expectations. My husband mentioned was that really filet?? The soggy mushrooms and strange risotto accompaniments were disappointing. If the chef noticed, 4 of the steak dishes were 1/2 eaten. My husbands partner ordered the Lobster pot pie which had no lobster in it. The chef added some after the fact!
It was a retirement dinner for my husbands office manager. I did not complain at the time, but I am calling the hotel manager tomorrow. I have eaten many times in the dining room especially for “special occasions”. This was certainly not what I expected.

Apparently you need reservations for the lounge too. The bar area manager rudely ushered us away from a table in the cocktail lounge when we arrived early for a pre-dinner cocktail. When this behavior was brought to the staff’s attention we were told that a manager would stop by our table to discuss. No manager found the time to discuss.

Dinner: The limited menu was even more limited when two of our party ordered the lamb shank we were later told there was only one left.

Susan, our waitress in the dining room, was very pleasant and provided excellent service.
