This restaurant has hired the right people. The staff, the chef, everyone was upbeat and chill. Each dish was prepared perfectly! A little pricey, but a great value. My wife, I and my mother in law all enjoyed our meals for about $130 with drinks and tips. Even the coffee was excellent!

The owner and chef not only has a good selection of beer but he has the absolute best home made ginger ice cream and coconut cake. The restaurant is not too big it has a beautiful bar and the food is really really good. Can't give this place enough praise I love going here for a special dinner.

Tried this restaurant when traveling through town and will never go back. Their menu is very small (one page) and not very diverse, so one would expect that the chef could produce the 'slim pickings' very well! That was not the case. The food was very disappointing. And on top of that, it took too long to get to the... More

The setting is warm, friendly and fun. The menu has something for everyone. The prices are reasonable. We had some wine, a pork tenderloin dinner and a scallop dinner that were both amazing and tasty. The desserts were made in house with fabulous ice cream on both. Can't wait to go back.

Molasses Grill is one of the best, if not the best restaurant that I have ever been to. It's located in little Halifax, VA and worth driving from the big cities to get a good dinner! Everything on the menu is fabulous and Thursday they offer burger specials! Highly recommend!

We visited twice during our stay in South Boston - at the beginning of the trip and at the end - it was perfect both times. We've been visiting here for years, the owner/chef and his family are super friendly and he's such a great guy, always passing by the tables and making sure everything's okay. They even make a...

This place is a gem in a small town. If you are visiting family and want a quality meal at a reasonable price, there is no where else to consider. If your local then you've probably already heard or tasted how great this food is. Really nice intimate setting. We've been greeted by the chef every visit. The menu has... More

Chef Steve and his wife Karen do a wonderful job of running a successful restaurant with delicious food. We go here for every celebration dinner and just for date nights as a couple, as well. The menu changes often and offers local foods. We always look forward to the apple crisp that Chef prepares in the wintertime. The brownie is... More

Visited with my girlfriend. We had a very enjoyable bottle of wine and a selection of entres. She had the filet, I had halibut. Both were cooked to perfection and were seasoned well. Enough type enhance the flavor not not overwhelm the palate. Very nice surprise in the small town of Halifax
