    We went to Malones’s Palomar after graduation and it was one of the worst meals I have ever had there! The service was terribly slow and most is the food came out cold!

    Ordered the filet mignon, asparagus and sweet potato casserole. The steak was good quality but had too much salt and pepper seasoning to really appreciate the flavor. The casserole had very little pecan topping but was not too sweet, which was nice. The asparagus was nicely seasoned and cooked. The salad that comes with the steaks had too much ranch-type seasoning. The service was phenomenal.

    Overall experience was okay. Majority of our food was cold. Bread, crab rangoon, and baked potato were all cold. Baked potato was cooked but clearly had been sitting. The cheese and butter on the potato never melted. Crab Rangoon came out slightly warm with the buffalo shrimp being hot to the touch. Bread was never warm. Steaks were delicious and cooked to order. Felt like bread and potatoes may have been left over from lunch service.

    We went out for my Husband's birthday with our extended family and the bread wasn't warm, the salad was mushy, burgers were over cooked, fries were cold and over seasoned the sprite tasted like seltzer water and the water had a funky after taste. The service was just ok. The environment was loud and we could barely hear ourselves talk and could hardly hear the server and could barely hear us as well. We sat inside at Malones not outside. The salad and sliders are one of my favorites and it was a huge disappointment. I don't think anyone finished their meal that night because it was not up to par.

    Service is always impeccable. Had Grilled Salmon with broccoli. Salmon was about half the size it was a year ago for a significantly higher price and the broccoli was somewhere between raw and blanched and on the tough side. Not at all impressed with the food. Again, the service was excellent but the food for the quantity and quality was about 3 times the reasonable price. Not likely to visit again soon.

    My wife and I went there for our 47th anniversary! We enjoyed it very much! Great facility, excellent and responsive wait staff, terrific food and ample parking nearby in the shopping center lot. We were seated immediately but had scheduled our table several days in advance. Only negative was the crowd noise which was considerable but we had a booth which allowed conversation between us. If you have hearing issues and want to visit, you might consider asking for a booth.

    Ate Mother's Day lunch today. Service was very slow. Waitress forgot to enter one order entirely. By the time it arrived the rest of family was done eating. Manager agreed to take it off the bill. Asst. Server asked repeatedly to take plates away. My son's salad plate was taken twice! Lansdowne is still the best Malones in town!

    Service was great!! Enjoyed the meal with family, for Mother's Day. They did forget to put the chicken on my salad at first, but then they eventually they retrieved it. Thank the Lord, because the salad has gone up to $17! Luckily I had plenty of their delicious bread and butter to hold me over. Side note: I do not remember the restaurant ever being that loud in our past dinning experiences (we are frequent patrons, in fact Malones catered our wedding in 2017) but it was so loud, I couldn't really talk much to my 74 year old Father in Law across the table.

    Table of four. Ordered two appetizers, four entrees. One appetizer and one entree were incorrect but quickly fixed - no adjustment on final bill. Multiple cocktails were well balanced and well mixed. Steaks, as always, of high quality and expertly prepared.

    We arrived about an hour before closing on a Tuesday night and there were few diners still there. We sort of expected to be rushed or ignored or both, but we had excellent, attentive service throughout. The food was as good as always, which is to say, excellent. And the old-fashioneds were divine. Thank you for taking good care of us!
