Nice atmosphere, relaxed, casual, clean, updated. Very nice server, attentive, knowledgeable, friendly, fast. Appetizers, salads and entrees came out right on time. Appetizer of calamari looked hand-breaded, not a frozen bagged item. Also had the buffalo shrimp which was a little skimpy, only 4 medium-size shrimp with a little too much sauce, but tasted good. Salads were composed of a... More

Needed a very nice restaurant to celebrate daughter's graduation from Paul Smith's College. As we were staying at the Red Roof Inn in Malone, the front desk recommended Donovan's. We called late day and were still able to have our group of eleven accommodated that same evening. Our party all had a different entrée and all were top notch. Quality... More

Spending time at Donovan's is a must when visiting the North Country. Try a burger or seafood Mac & cheese....bit are excellent along with many other choices. The blue moon beer with a slice of orange is excellent. Sit in the dining room or eat in the bar area where a warm fireplace is always crackling. A popular spot..lots of... More

It was Our 24th anniversary SO glad we went to Donovans. They have my business from now on. It's very hard to find black and white service in Adirondacks. Service was excellent. Food was prepared very well. Instead of having a large menu done poorly, Donovans executes a small menu very well. 10 to 15 items per category, seafood, steaks... More

This is a pleasant surprise to find in the North Country. My husband and I have dined here several times, and every time has been wonderful. The greeters and servers are friendly and knowledgeable. The food is great with prices very reasonable. This place is a winner.

Easy to find restaurant. Had great french onion soup and the prime rib/roast beef sandwich. I got my peanut butter explosion dessert to go. It was also delicious. Great service too.

This meal was awesome. Both my husband and I ordered the Delmonico grilled rib eye steak topped with a maple bourbon demi glaze. It was cooked exactly the way I ordered and was extremely tender. I was disappointed that it came with fries (my fault for not noticing in the menu), however, the waitress returned with a side plate of... More

I say surprisingly because Malone is a very small town and there aren't a lot of choices here. So on the strength of reviews I read here we decided to try D's. I have to say, the food was amazingly good. Pricey but good. What we liked: Very attentive service. Sarah, our waitress, was wonderful. Background music was lovely and... More

The village of Malone is not noted for fne dining, but Donovan's is the exception. I recently visited for a golf vacation and was recommended to this excellent restaurant. My waitress was friendly, prompt and very helpful. I enjoyed a special that night of steak tips whith mushrooms and garlic in a Gorgonzola cream sauce. It was excellent and came... More
