Mollie's Bar & Diner

103-105 Smith Street, Fitzroy 3065
$ Australian Top 10 Recommended New Editor's Pick

Mollie's Bar and Diner is serving parmas, burgers, pizzas, fish & chips. Mollie’s is named after Chris’ (Owner) Mum and our philosophy is simple – All food is prepared fresh and is served with the same love and attention Mollie served food to her eight sons and seven daughters.

Mollie’s is a very relaxed, canteen style bar and dining experience. With lots of chat in the main dining room with silent movies playing on the big screen accompanied by warm service coming with a touch of “sass”.

Mollies has a unique sun sprayed or heated outdoor roof terrace, incorporating a wind control design, perfect for Melbourne offering a vista of iconic buildings like the Collingwood Town Hall and of course the hustle and bustle of Smith Street.

Good wasn't bad but the eggplant parmigiana was awful. Service very slow. And for the ambiance it was very very hot. No AC and no ventilation. Overall the night was fantastic because of the drag queen. Drag Bingo is fun. I'll continue to go everytime I can.

The review format won’t allow me to rate to 10 only goes up to 9 I’m concerned of the new chairs as the back legs tend to spread out a little when I sit on them hence giving me a feeling they might collapse yet so far it hasn’t a few of my friends have said the same I’m wondering if in the future management may consider installing a lift ? All in all a great venue filled with good banter and comical hosts

One of the highlights of the night was the Mac and Cheese croquettes! They are the best I’ve ever ever had! Had to pass them around the table because they were so good! Everyone was in love with them! Will be back again and again!

Miss Jay is an incomparable manager and the Mollie's team are all so gorgeous and create a really nice, queer space. We ordered the arancini, vegan pizza and polenta fries for the table. The pizza was great, the polenta fries and arancini needed some more seasoning like nutritional yeast or something. But we will definitely be back

Hi team, I love Mollies, staff are always friendly, food is good value and it’s an all-round great queer space. However, it’s always difficult to find out what time shows are starting as it’s not clear on the website or when booking and it’s impossible to speak to anyone on the phone to enquire or change a booking.

Love going to mollies .I enjoy chatting with the bar staff kitchen staff and drag queens that make the evening experience fabulous .my only critique is some of the tables are terribly wobbly ..when one sits down with drinks and accidentally knocks the table the drinks spill everywhere ..unless the staff are available to clean it up many serviettes are used .

I love and enjoy all aspects of mollies the only concern I have are the tables and chairs ..Depending on the nite some tables wobble so much that utilizing a knife and fork on your meal enables the drinks to splash out of their containers therefore the bingo booklets become saturated thus becoming hard to use .I preferred the sturdiness of the old chairs

Our drinks took about 30 minutes to come out with our food taking just over twice as long. It looked like the kitchen was starting to clean up so I had to go up there to remind them about our food. When it arrived it didn’t arrive exactly how we’d ordered it, but by that point it was getting too late to fix it. Aside from the poor service, however, the food was nice and the night was a lot of fun! The Bingo is a lot of fun and we will be back again

Great place and best $15 Parma in town. Just need a few more interesting beers available to make it perfection.

We had a great night, some of the bar staff were a little rude, food service was super fast (was amazing), sound could have been a little louder. Would be great if there was a show between the shows or do show halfway???

A staff member made fun of me for being straight (I’m a lesbian) and I had to correct them…in a gay bar.

I love coming to Mollies! The only piece of feedback that I would provide is that the music is too loud in the breaks between shows. You can barely hear the others at your table and have to yell.

Ordered 2 meals. Exactly same meals. 1 turned up. The other never did and had to advise the waiter 30mins later we were still waiting
