Our hostess at the b&b we were staying at suggested Donovan's Steak & Ale. We had a wonderful dinner with excellent service! Would definitely recommend!

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.

We have had many meals at Donovans Steak & Ale in Malone and have always been more than satisfied with the quality of the meals as well as the service. It's a very nice atmosphere and we enjoy going there. I have also been to several showers and parties and it's always been great.

Back in town for some American Legion baseball and had to go back to Donovan's Steak and Ale. Everyone was more than happy with their meals. If baseball brings us back to Malone we'll be back at Donovan's for some steak. They also have seafood options available.

Had onion soup to start which was good. The steak I ordered was not on the menu... I think it was a rib steak. It was not the best quality cut of meat... a lot of gristle and not very flavorful. The caesar salad was ok. All washed down with a pint of ale. As a first time diner here... More

Not my first time at Donovan's but I only go there once a year as part of my golf group's visit. The service is first rate and the food is even better. A very nice little restaurant and a cozy little bar at the back with a couple TVs. They took our reservation and were ready for us when we... More

Staying in a semi-nearby town we wanted to go somewhere for a nice dinner. As the region as a whole doesn't have much to choose from, we were happy when we found Donovan's. The place itself is somewhat nondescript, and is casual in dress. They had a nice selection of beer on tap, and a variety in bottles. The wait... More
