Picked up salads, veggies, bread and huge 12 oz filets to grill at a friends Lakehouse south of Lexington. The ordering process was simple, the food great , portions very generous, more than we could eat. Huge softball size filets were a treat to grill....More

I have dined at Malone's numerous times and the food and service has always been excellent. I am especially fond of raw oysters which are a specialty at this restaurant. The presentation is excellent (no bits of shell in food) and the taste is great.

This was our first time dining at Malone’s and we will not be returning. It may have been an off night for the restaurant as they were very busy with large parties of prom folks. We arrived about 15 minutes early and were promptly seated...More

We had a delicious lunch here. Their crab rangoon appetizer was excellent as was their Lexingtonian salad with filet. The chocolate cake was enormous and unbelievably good-served all 6 of us! The kids loved all of the celebrity signatures on the walls as well.

The food was way too salty. The ribeye was different thicknesses so cooked unevenly. For $44, I expect a better cut. Half the fries were fresh and half were old and cold. The bread was good. Not up to their usual standards.

Located in shopping center--ample parking, but not always close to the restaurant. Pretty much standard steakhouse, but offers extensive Sushi appetizers. Large assortment of steaks, but some other choices available as well. Good salad and sides options. Generous sized drinks. Expensive, but good value.

You’ll be fine in a dress shirt. I’ve seen men in casual shirts and even T-shirt’s fir that matter.

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.
