We were out celebrating birthdays. The service and food were good. Almost every time we visit Malone’s, it is a good experience- all around.

This was our first visit and our anniversary dinner. We both ordered steak and they were cooked to perfection. Our sides were very good and we had the chocolate moose cake for dessert and it was delicious. Our waitress was fantastic and on top of it. I was very pleased with our first visit. We'll be back.

I went for my birthday dinner, and the food was fantastic! I got the jumbo fried shrimp and my fiancé got the kobe burger. Everything was perfect, and the service was amazing!

We have never had a bad experience at Malone’s. Our server last night was Jonathan and his service was outstanding. We had salmon, steaks, salads, appetizers and desserts- all were excellent. We also very much appreciated the plexiglass between booth spaces. We love Malone’s!

Our server did not introduce himself after he approached our table. We ordered an appetizer and my husband had to mention that we did not receive it. We did not receive our bar drinks until after our appetizer. The main dish was delicious. We ordered steaks. The endless salad was delicious also. Our server checked on us only once after receiving our main meal. We had to request more water instead of our server seeing that we needed more drinks. We had chose Malone’s to celebrate our anniversary after hearing that it was a nice place to celebrate such occasion. We even drove an hour to Lexington to visit Malone’s. Needless to say, we were disappointed in our first visit and more than likely our only visit. We felt that if we spent $150 for a meal, the service should be much more personable.

First time at Malone’s. Enjoyed the experience, just noticed small things that only 2 former servers would notice such as the manager at the inside host stand getting snippy with hosts for sending in people too early. Does it bother us? No, but we just pick up on these things.


Absolutely loved the salad that accompanies the steaks. Steaks were good, but not great. Not sure if it was a matter of being overhyped/priced or what. Liked our server, she was chill. Enjoyed our drinks as well.

I can see how it is a Lexington staple, but I think in general its a little overpriced.

We went in for a date. We were immediately seated as we had a reservation. We were greeted immediately by our server and brought our bread. Our server was very busy and she forgot to ring in our order, which we had been eating out appetizer so it slipped our minds. She admitted her mistake and even offered a dessert! Our meal was awesome and our server was very attentive. You could see managers walking around to make sure everyone was taken care of. We had no issues besides waiting so long for our meal, but it was so busy we hadn’t even thought of her not ringing it in. Overall a great visit and we will definitely be returning to this location! It’s now our favorite compared to the Hamburg location.

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.
