A Family Affair

A love of cooking is in the Rane blood. Anthony Rane - the family patriarch known to locals as Mr. Tony - was born to Italian immigrants who brought from the home country traditions going back for generations. At his mother’s side, he learned that cooking is not a duty, but an opportunity to spread the joys of friendship and love of family. And meals are treasured moments.


In restaurants from New York in his younger days to his own enterprises in Abbeville and Eufaula later on, Mr. Tony practiced those principles, and he instilled them in his own sons. Today, Jimmy Rane continues the tradition with Huggin’ Molly’s, a family restaurant serving friendly hugs - and good food too.
