“Good value for money”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Molly's is a go-to place for lunch, especially. The view is wonderful, the "ambiance" and history are marvelous, and, guess what, the food is really good. It's not gourmet, but it sure is a step above and other family restaurant in this area. Always freshly prepared, always served without delays, and always with a smile!

“Site Of "The Beachcombers" and Well Worth The View”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

If only for the fact that the long-running CBC television series "The Beachcombers' was filmed in Gibsons and in Molly's Reach Restaurant, a visit to Molly's for lunch was well worth the trip. Food was good. Service was fine. And the view of the harbour added to the ambiance of the place.

“Relic might not like this place”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

What can you say about Molly's Reach? It's a local landmark and a big draw for the summer tourists. The regular staff are friendly and capable but things change in the summer and service sometimes suffers. The food is essentially pub fare but it's usually okay. The owner seems to count on the fact that most people are not repeat customers so she isn't very friendly. Fish and chips and burgers are their big sellers - both done pretty well but a little expensive for what you get. They have R&B beer on tap. If you ever watched the Beachcomber TV show, the memorabilia is worth a visit.

“Taking advantage of location and reputation.”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Been twice for breakfast on this stay here. Both times have been unable to eat the undercooked eggs, once being told by the waitress that they looked alright to her. Also the hash browns are packaged frozen cheap chunks of potatoes. Seems pretty lazy but then they didn't seem to care because people go for the location and reputation. Most of the staff very nice though. Come on people....chop up a real potato! Especially for the fish and chips. Also, since when do I have to sit beside a dog in a restaurant? Next time I'm sitting out on the patio and a dog sits next to me, I am going to fire up a cigar. Equally as offensive to some.
