Great place to eat and food was delicious for sure! The hostesses need to help out waitstaff with seating customers along with silverware right from the start. It was clear everyone was needing utensils at once and they were scattering .. it was embarrassing for the waitresses. Overall I may eat there again if in the area.

Fast friendly service. My wife had the steak salad and I had the smoked salmon Fettuccine. Both were excellent and good sized portions. Ashton was our server. She suggested the Fettuccine. Very friendly with a great smile.

We had a wonderful dining experience at Malones. We loved the Brussel sprouts dish as well as the fried avocado. Great burger, and a great wine 🍷 list. Fun place to get together with friends for dinner.

I like the changes that have been made to the dining room, it has added a little more privacy to your dining experience. We ate there for lunch and had a hamburger. It was quite tasty with a generous meat patty and a large portion of french fries. It was a satisfying and tasty lunch. Kudos to the new owners.

The food was warm, tasty and adequately seasoned but I have to say that it was average and comparable to other similar steakhouse or nice dining setting. Servers were friendly. We were there quite early for dinner, at 4:30ish, so we didn't get a good sense on the popularity of this establishment.

We were eager to dine at Malone's since ownership had changed. We finally got a chance to sample the new menu items. We started with the avocado fries for $8. We received 6 small slices of avocado with a lackluster sauce. The avocado fries themselves were very tasty, but the price was a bit expensive for the meager amount served.... More

Just tried Malones after new owners took over. While they have kept some former favorites, they have have expanded the menu with new creative dishes. Hamburgers are still great. More nightly specials. We will return.

We decided to give the "new" Malone's a try last night. It is much brighter and the bar area is a huge improvement. We were greeted with a smile and seated immediately. We placed our drink order and waited and waited and waited - at least 20 minutes later our server went over to the bar and stood there while... More

First time in Scotts Valley. Malone's Grille was suggested by a local as the best burger in town. Right on. Had the Malone's Burger, 12 ounces of great burger. Try the truffle fries as a side. Service was excellent, truly neighborly. Restaurant recently went through ownership change and some remodeling - use doors by the bar area. Partner had the... More
