We were vacationing in the northern Adirondacks for our anniversary and found Donovan's. Great find. We ate on the back deck and enjoyed a bottle of New York white wine with dinner. We had salads & entrees, steak & scallops, all of which were delicious. Definately recommend a visit.

Great service even though it was almost closing time when we arrived. The menu was varied and we had a great chicken caesar salad.

This is the third time I've eaten at Donovans. We drive for 3 hours to get there, so needless to say, we can't go very often. It is really fantastic. Scott, our waiter couldn't have been any nicer or more attentive. The meals are great as are the drinks. Thank you for having this little bit of heaven on earth!

I myself had a skirt steak with seasonal veggies, and bacon and potatoes. The "juices" were a bit excessive lol, but still delicious. My family all enjoyed their meals as well. Service was friendly and prompt - everything you could want.

Art Donovan, the owner, is a fan and friend of No 16, Henri Richard, of the Canadiens Hockey Club, and he dedicated part of the wall of his bar room with memorabilia from this legend. The restaurant is at the same time very classy and distinguished with its white cloth tables, and the bar is a rustic decor typical of... More

We had a romantic dinner at this restaurant, after a day of hiking in the Adirondacks. There is not much to see or do in Malone but this was a pleasant surprise. Sitting outside on the patio, served by a very friendly and knowledgeable waitress, we had an excellent meal. First delicious French onion soup followed by Filet Mignon with... More

As part of our family reunion, we booked (last minute) a table for 19. They called back to confirm our reservation almost immediately. The service was superb and the food was excellent. Most of us had something different and all raved about theirs. I would highly recommend Donovan's to anyone visiting the Malone area. You won't find better!

Blah, blah food. No elan, no character, boring and, to boot, gave us heart burn. Place is like an up-jumped diner. OK for kids but without pretensions and no saving graces. Not recommended.

Thank Fred N
