Donovan's is a very good place to eat. I have eaten there several times and have not had a bad meal. Their beer and wine selections are very good also. Definitely recommend if you are in Malone.

Since I live here in town, I have dined here several times. I find the food consistently well prepared, generous, and delicious! Two of my favorites are the filet and seafood medley. Staff is always very pleasant and attentive. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Four of us dined at this steakhouse recently. One had the filet which he thought was "awesome." Two ate the very delicious seafood bake. The other dined on Chicken Marsala. We all thoroughly enjoyed the Caesar salads which accompanied our meals. The fresh baked rolls with maple butter were fantastic. Even though we were quite full we had to sample... More

My wife and I dined at Donovan's on a quiet Tuesday evening 6/14/16. The atmosphere was pleasant, as was the service. My filet mignon was done exactly as I wished and was well presented on the plate. My wife enjoyed her pasta primavera . The menu offered a nice selection at very reasonable prices.

We showed up 15 minutes before they were closing and they still happily agreed to fill our take out order. We got the seafood pasta bake and the chicken pasta with an artichoke/boursin sauce. both were very tasty but the rolls with maple butter were delicious, definitely worth a second visit.

I read the reviews and was looking forward to a good meal with my family. The Service was great but none of us finished our meals because they just didn't taste good. Even dessert was a let down. The calamari was probably the worst we ever had.
