Generations of Abbeville children have listened wide-eyed to their parents tell the story of Huggin' Molly. They have hurried home on nights lit only by the moon's glow, certain they saw something in the shadows, afraid she would be around the next corner. Legend says, if she happens upon you, she chases you down, gives you a huge hug and screams in your ear. Now Huggin' Molly has returned to the streets of Abbeville in the shape of a 1950s style restaurant with an authentic soda fountain. Serving specialty "sandwitches" at lunch and offering fine dining at dinner (see hours of operation), Huggin' Molly's is a family restaurant serving friendly hugs and good food, too!

Homemade “Molly” Fingers
For some dishes, homemade makes all the difference. Molly's Fingers at Huggin' Molly's are one such meal. Hand breaded in a batter with just the right blend of spices, these chicken fingers are made to order, ensuring a golden finish every time. The succulent chicken stays juicy and flavorful on the inside, and the crispy, fried coating gives just enough crunch. These tasty tenders are served with Huggin' Molly's signature "Come Back" sauce, available by the bottle at this Abbeville spot.
Molly's Fingers are not only a tasty snack but also a comfort food for all ages. They're especially good paired with a fresh basket of fries or a side of roasted garlic mashed potatoes. And for those with a sweet tooth, the dessert menu is filled with variations on the classic ice cream sundae.
