Offered whole or by the slice, the pizza here has a crisp, flavorful crust and can be piled high with your choice of fresh toppings. Indoor seating includes a few small tables and a counter with tall stools, but the best place to sit is outside on the patio. Even in colder weather, space heaters warm the outsides of patrons, while pizza warms the insides. Beer and wine available. Cash only.
This elegant restaurant is housed in a building that dates to 1790.

For a quick start, the calamari is a time-tested house favorite. Opens daily at 5pm.
Named after their great-grandmother, Molly MacPherson's Scottish Pub & Grill in Savannah was opened in 2005 by Debbie Boulanger and Jennifer Brown to share their Scottish roots and traditions with people.
