We started out with their exceptional sweet and spicy calamari. The bottomless Lexingtonian salads were fresh and well dressed. Our prime cut sirloins were spiced and cooked to perfection. Who can beat their mac and cheese? This was our first introduction to Kentucky's fine cuisine...More

We visited the Malone's at Palomar in Lexington, Ky for my 50th birthday celebration. We did make a reservation, but for a Sunday night, it really wasn't needed. We were greeted warmly by the host, and had a great server Eric S. He was pleasant...More

The service was great. The prices were decent for a steak house. The bottomless salad was good but had way too much salad dressing for my taste. If you are not big on salad dressing ask for half the amount. The decor was just OK...More

We have a reservation at Malone's at Palomar. Would you recommend that we try one of the other Malone's rather than the one at Palomar. We only have two evenings in Lexington. Thanks for your reply.

Although I have visited Malone's at Lansdowne the most over the years, I have been to all 3, including Palomar location recently, I don't think there is anything to gain by going to a different location.
Hi! I had the best sea bass I have ever had at your restaurant last fall. It had some kind of blackberry sweet topping on it. Can you tell me what that topping was? I sure wish I lived closer to you!!!
