Malone's walls of fame with Malone's logo autographed by celebrities (mostly UK Basketball players and coaches) is over the top. Inside dining is crowded and VERY LOUD. It is not the place to go for a nice, relaxing, pleasant, enjoyable meal. I am always hurrying...More

Service was excellent. Our waiter was very attentive, never had to ask for anything or wait on refills. Ordered medium rare filet, it was cooked more medium than rare and over seasoned. Not the best steak I've had.

We've been multiple times as a family- lunch or dinner and have NEVER been disappointed. Salads are all great and sides are all wonderful. Not recommended for vegetarian/vegan.

Malones was happening as we arrived early 11:30, I think everyone was enjoying a great lunch before attending Keeneland race track. Service, atmosphere, and salmon were terrific.

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!!!
