It fell off the bone & had perfect mashed potatoes The seafood bake was good also I had a martini & it was not served on a chilled glass nor shaken well to make it cold....

Good steak place but seafood was even better, Fresh and easy. Wait staff ok no ball of fire. If you don't mind at least 24 dollars an entree it is a good place to eat

A group of 8 stopped in for dinner this week....our first time in Malone and this restaurant was recommended. Several different dishes were ordered and all were very well received including the salmon ( cooked just right!) to lobster mac and cheese( very rich and creamy) to the Pork Osso Buco ( very delicious but could not eat it all!)....

The food and service was indeed exceptional. I used to live in Malone and have been here numerous times over the past few years. What intrigued me the most were the comments about Art the colorful bartender. I have heard some of his stories before and wonder if they are now larger than life! I must say that his personality...

Stayed overnight in Malone NY on the way to Montreal. Found this restaurant through triadvisor. Was pleasantly surprised. We ordered the French onion soup. The biggest bowl/crock I have ever been served. Ahi tuna salad>>> tuna seared just right. My husband's steak>>>perfect. Who would have thought that the best meal I had on my entire vacation would have been here!!!

On the advice of the host Suzanne of Kinburn Manor in Malone, NY, we had dinner at Donovan's. Service and food were excellent, decor could use a bit of an upgrade but that is the way of the economy as we found during our 2 1/2 week road trip. We had strip loin steak and ribs as our main courses,... More

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
