Our table was concerned about the proximity to multiple tables of other diners. We were four feet or less from booths on both sides of our table. There are Plexiglas screens between the booths but no barrier between the booths and center tables.

It was very full there (with social distancing) so the service wasn’t what it usually is, there were a few hiccups but they were quickly corrected so that was fine. My only one issue being, and I am a “foodie” so this could just be personal taste? I ordered the whitefish and it came out bright orange and so overly seasoned I couldn’t even taste the fish?? The manager was quick to accommodate and get another one ordered and the next one was fine. I get it, it’s a “steakhouse” emphasis on the “steak” but I’m thinking they need to maybe ask the guest first before seasoning something so heavily? My husband had the large Filet and that didn’t have near as much seasoning as the fish did? Again, the waitress and the manager were quick to make it right, but maybe going forward change the menu to “heavily seasoned” whitefish or at least give the guest a chance to decide? So! Would I go back again? For sure!!! Would I order the whitefish again? Hmm no, I’ll stick with the steak! And kudos to the manager for not making me feel high maintenance, he was very gracious and understanding!

Very slow service. Food was just ok, the steak was good, but the crab leg had zero flavor. Definitely a disappointment for the cost. However the salad (that isn’t automatically refilled and took 10 minutes to get after requesting) was the best part of the meal! We won’t be returning anytime soon.

Our first post-lockdown Malone’s experience did not disappoint. I travel a lot and this is the best steak you will find anywhere. Try the petite filet or the Randall Cobb depending on how big your appetite. The service is always second to none as well.

Overall, service was excellent, but then there would be the occasional glaringly bad turn. Although dishes were cleared promptly, the table itself was never cleaned off even though it obviously needed it. Our head waiter was excellent, but when my wife asked to take something home another server just handed her a takeout box...no offer to help place it, bag or any other assistance. The food was delicious overall, but I’m stunned that in a restaurant of this caliber a lobster tail only comes deep fried, which for it’s reputation, the restaurant is surprisingly casual. Almost, extremely so. The outdoor seating area is great, but I would not choose this restaurant for a special occasion.

Great food with great service adds up to a great dining experience. I like that the entree price includes a salad and an side item. That adds value to the meal which is why Malone’s is one of my favorites.

Made reservations for two at 5:45pm, arrived and a table was ready for us. Waitress was friendly and did a great job. Food was outstanding. We both had the petite Filet with mashed potatoes. Both were excellent. Crab Rangoon appetizer was incredible as well. Bill came to $95 before tip, well worth it.

Our visit started out poorly as we were sat at our table and we were not visited by a server until the manager made his way around and asked us if we had been greeted yet. We were tucked away in a little cubby so it’s easy to see how we were overlooked. He quickly got our server so she could greet us and get our drink order. He then came back with a complimentary appetizer for the table. He apologized again. We are not ones to get too upset about these kind of things so his gesture was received with many thanks from us. We then ordered, had our delicious meal, and were ready to pay and leave with our full bellies, but the kind manager surprised us once again with a free dessert! He went above and beyond to make up for the time we waited at the beginning of the meal. This is an example of the many reasons we call Malone’s one of our favorite restaurants. My only regret is that I wish we would have gotten the manager’s name. He was so caring and considerate and made our night fantastic!

While Malone's staff took out temperature when we entered the restaurant, the tables on the floor were still quite close together. Staff do wear masks but not gloves. I do not plan to return to indoor dining at any Malone's in the near future.

We are regulars at Malone's and I am well aware of the level of service we normally receive. This experience was substandard at best.When we were seated the host didn't give us a wine list and one of the menus was dropped on the floor. The young lady (Caroline) was new and she told us this about 10 times. She didn't ask if we had ever been there before, didn't know the menu and didn't even know the name of the butter spread. We waited over 25 minutes for a glass of water( that I ask for 3 times) and longer than that for a glass of wine. She was apologizing to all 3 tables she had. She struggled throughout the entire dinner. Her support staff seemed to be lost as well. Our food was perfect as usual. We love the food there and usually the entire experience, but something was off for sure.

Outstanding from the artichoke spinach appetizer to the Regatta apple dessert was unbeatable. The appetizer was loaded w artichokes and the ranch dressing would not pass the upside test it was so thick, my potato toppings were so plentiful I put some of them on my salad. They do not thin it to stretch the product, they do not skimp on quantity to short quality for their customers satisfaction. Our waiter was very knowledgeable attentive but not annoying. We will and are return customers.
