Friendly staff and the kind of food you would expect in an American pub. They've been around for several years.

On the main drag in town. Overall, main street had some nice surprises. Molly's is a shotgun bar, long and narrow with darts at the back. Seems like a good bar but not fancy. I get fish and chips every chance I get, so I have some experience. Cod was good but I've had better batter--not crisp but kind of... More

We went there twice in about a two week span in mid March 17'. Both times it was after eating elsewhere so I can't tell you about their food. Fun atmosphere, good beer and drink selection. One night entertainment was provided by a head banging hard rock band from Culpepper, actually quite good. The other time was possibly a good... More

It is a very cozy location, with a fun atmosphere. The burgers are delicious and the coleslaw is to die for. I recommend this restaurant to all who stay at my hotel. It is an excellent place and the staff are incredibly friendly.

We stopped here after a hike in Shenadoah National Park. As the name implies it has an Irish Pub motif and an Irish Pub menu. We both got hamburgers and they were delicious. The beer selection is decent and wine is served also. The tables are spread out for private conversation and the wait staff is excellent.

The house got unusually slammed on a late wed. Afternoon, but our waitress and barmaid hustled the whole time to keep us happy. And the burgers were great and cooked to perfection.

We certainly enjoyed our dinner at Molly's. This quaint restaurant/pub in the heart of downtown Warrenton was a perfect ending to our day of exploring the beautiful region. The Chicken Pot Pie was delicious, although not typical of this staple offering. It was a generous portion of diced chicken and vegetables topped by a round flaky puff. My dinner mate... More

Molly's is a fun place on the weekends and a great place for lunch anytime. They usually have live music. The food is very good and they have a very friendly staff. Their Shepard's Pie is a must try!
