In 1983, Marc and Patty Milowsky converted the Town and Country Dress Shop in downtown Hanover into a 130-seat restaurant and bar and named it Molly’s Balloon. Just 2 blocks from the Dartmouth Green, Molly’s is a favorite of Dartmouth students and locals alike. In 1998, 25 more indoor seats were added and an outdoor patio. Molly's is a timeless college bar, complete with walls of Ivy League memorabilia, local sports photos and artifacts.
At Molly's, guests enjoy freshly baked bread with honey butter, wonderful finger foods and appetizers, wood-fired thin crust pizzas, fresh seasonal salads, our favorite entrees, pasta dishes, delicious burgers, sandwiches , and homemade desserts. Molly's is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week.
In July of 1976, the Milowskys founded Jesse’s, a log cabin dinner house. The original restaurant consisted of 86 seats, a 40 seat bar area, and an atmosphere reminiscent of the Victorian Old West. In 1981, Marc and Patty added a custom greenhouse to the building, and in 1990, added the Adirondack Lodge and outdoor deck. In 2008, a new brick patio in front of the restaurant added a charming outdoor dining space.
Jesse's is known for its hand-cut and house-aged steaks, amazing salad bar, tender prime rib, Sunday brunch buffet and lively tavern featuring the best happy hour in the Upper Valley. Jesse’s is open for lunch and dinner. Buffet brunch is served Sunday mornings. Visit Jesse's Steakhouse.
