I went alone, was seated in the bar area near the fireplace! Best seat in the house if you ask me! I wanted to order a petite filet mignon with a side of lobster tail but that wasn’t an option on the menu. So I...ordered the Surf ‘n Turf burger, which was topped with lobster meat and I got the lobster Mac & cheese. The food was tasty and was a nice substitute. The atmosphere was very nice and quiet. Staff was friendly and helpful! Would def eat here again when in this area.More

I have been there dozens of times and never been disappointed. Their prices are fair and quality of ingredients is always top notch. They do NOT used canned veggies like most other nearby establishments . During the covid pandemic they responded quickly with a plan...that provided a safe, affordable, delicious, and well thought out option for families. The pork osso buco is perfectly cooked, best i have ever had. Meat temperatures are always spot on too order. The consistent quality of the food that comes out of that kitchen keeps me coming back. Great atmosphere for a small or group gathering. Fine dining food at a midrange priceMore

We ordered the Steak Salad yesterday, while I was expecting it to be good, I did not expect it to be as blissful as it was. My petite filet was done to the perfect medium rare as usual, the blue cheese was outstanding, and the...salad with its maple balsamic dressing would have been nice on its own. However, the genius in your chef’s pairing these ingredients together should be applauded. Bravo!More

We visited Donovan's on a Saturday night with friends and had a great meal. My husband had the seafood melody which had lobster, shrimp and scallops in it. A small dinner salad came with an incredible blue cheese dressing. I ordered the lobster mac and...cheese appetizer which had nice pieces of sweet lobster mixed in. A nice maple butter was served with the roll basket.Everyone in the group truly enjoyed their meals. Enough talk about the food now about the service. Our waitress was very knowledgable of the menu and had a great personality. When my husband coudn't make up his mind on 2 choices he asked her to surprise him. He was very happy with the selection.More

We held my Mom’s 90th birthday party here. Everything about the evening was wonderful from the wait staff; especially our waitress Amanda, the ambiance of the place, to the delicious food. One never goes home hungry or disappointed. When in Malone, this is a restaurant...is a must for dining.More

We had our rehearsal dinner here in October 2019. I had been working with Donovan for about 10 months planning, He knows what he is doing! Once I picked the meals from the regular menu (5 total plus dessert), he created our own menus for...the bridal party. We had about 25 in the party. The food was outstanding. The Delmonico Ribeye, Salmon and Seafood Pasta were the favorites among the group. There was so much food to eat that most people had leftovers, even my son who loves to eat couldn't finish his meal. I received rave reviews from everyone about their dinner. Our waitress was great. If I am ever in Malone again, we will definitely be going back!More
