My mother was in town visiting from Northern Ky and I wanted to treat her to a local establishment. Malone's did not disappoint! The steaks were perfect, the baked potatoes were huge and the service was spot on!! We came a little bit before the typical dinner rush as to avoid the crowd which I think helped make the meal...

If you want to go to a great restaurant go to Malones. The service is great. You usually have two servers taking care of you. The atmosphere is that of a private club. The Lexitonian salad is the best. The food overall is excellent. Great place for special events too.

Malone's restaurant is most likely the best place in the area. The food quality, staff and service is second to none. We ate here multiple nights on our trip. Why search around if it's all offered here. Great bourbon selection too. Ask for Aaron to be your server, you'll appreciate his commitment to service.

I found getting seating on a Friday night a challenge but once sat, the wait staff was attentive. The food was good but the Lexingtonia salad was Wonderful. An endless bowl of crisp greens, tomatoes, bacon and tossed with the house creamy herb dressing was an experience worth repeating.

This place was wonderful. We asked the front desk where me and my boyfriend could go for dinner. They suggested this place and even gave us a card for priority seating and a free dessert. We arrived and there was a 50-60 minute wait. We showed the card and immediately got seated. After we ordered our drinks they brought our... More

Dined with our very special friends tonight at Malone's Palomar, service was a bit scattered, appetizers very good, entrees for 3 perfect, my first steak (ordered medium) came out medium well to well no pink. Second steak raw cold red center, third was right. I'm at home now eating alone not wanting to burden friends while I enjoyed my meal.... More

Came here for a birthday dinner while staying at a B&B in Versailles. B&B owner highly recommended this restaurant. We had a reservation and were seated within 5 minutes of arriving on a busy Friday night. The Lexingtonian salad is delicious! We ordered the Filet Oscar with Potato Gruyere Croquettes. The steak was cooked to perfection and the potatoes were... More

I love this place. Can't help it. There is soooo much to choose from. Essentially three different restaurants (pub/bar food, sushi, steakhouse), but you can order from all menus wherever you choose to sit. I have never had a bad meal here. The atmosphere is nice. The location is convenient. Trust me on this...

We visit Lexington often for business and always make sure we stop in Malone's for a delicious steak and unlimited salad and bread. Always great service and consistent high quality dishes.
