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

Between the 5 of us we ate it all. The steaks and seafood were all wonderful. A nice selections of brews as well. If we are ever back in Malone we will be back at Donovan's Steak and Ale.

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.
