    Good was absolutely delicious. I ordered my steak medium and it was probably medium rare but I don’t mind that. Crab cakes were spectacular. Our silverware rolls did not have forks but that was corrected pretty quickly.

    I made a reservation for my dad’s 60th birthday. I called earlier in the day and specifically asked for a booth. We were sat at a small table in the very back. The waiter did nothing to make the dinner special for us. We had to ask for things we needed more than once. The food was good but I would not recommend Malone’s for a special occasion

    I had reservations for 2 weeks. It was my wife's Birthday and also another birthday at our party of 6. At 1st everything was fine, we ordered, and they bought the endless salad, with 6 of us it emptied fast. Instead of bringing us more another helper came and took out plates and the salad bowls. When we got the salads all we had was a knives with the napkins. We had to ask for forks, When the food arrived one order was missing, and we had no steak knives. It is a steak house. It was not as special as I hoped it would be.

    This was a better experience than multiple trips to Palomar. Service is still "sub-malone's" standard. The assistant was more attentive than the server. Very long wait for service and order. Took a long time for drink refills. We had to flag down and ask. Food is usually great, which is what keeps us coming back. We do feel it's the best steak in town but the lack of service and the poor experience make us feel like it's not worth the price we pay. Restaurant was packed and servers were over-worked. Witnessed the hostess seat a large party that didn't have a reservation and told them they had 1-1/2 hours because they needed the table. It was just after the football game and it was clear they were above capacity and staff to accommodate. Noise level was high and not pleasant. This could be due to the after-game attendance. Just not the best experience we had hoped for. We tried Lansdowne as Palomar and Hamburg are both disappointing. Lansdowne was still not a great experience.

    Our servers were very attentive. In fact they were great. Our food on the other hand , not so great. My steak was dry and a tad bit over cooked. I thought it was just my steak but after conferring with others in my party, theirs were the same . The sides were however were scrumptious. But I don’t think I will be returning to this location.

    First time here while visiting Kentucky. Drinks were tasty and reasonably priced. There was a slight problem with our order and the manager came over and said they would be remaking all the orders so we would have our food at the same time (there were four of us). Plenty to eat and it was all done just right. We ordered three desserts which were very good as well. The manager then returned and said the desserts were complimentary since we had the issue with our order. He also gave us his personal card for contacting him when we return. And we will return!

    We reserved a table for 8 to celebrate two birthdays. I typically do not write a review that isn’t good, but I think it warrants sharing our experience for others who may consider this location for a special occasion. My husband and I drove 400+ miles to have a special birthday dinner with our son and daughter. We ordered several appetizers for the table, which were fine. The bottle of wine was a decent bottle for a reasonable price. However, the meals were an entirely different experience. The steaks ordered were fine, no issue there. My husband and I ordered the sea scallops and (disclaimer I love salt) they were coated in something like sea salt to the point I could barely eat them and he didn’t eat at all. Our son-in-law ordered one thing and got the wrong meal, and by the time his replacement meal came out EVERYONE was finished eating. Additionally, we ordered some sides for the table and asked for a serving utensil for them, which should have been provided, and it never arrived. By the time we could get someone’s attention, the sides were cold (it was at least 10 minutes). I would consider this (based on price) as an establishment where service should be at least better than that of a nicer chain restaurant and it just wasn’t. Most restaurants on their level will refill drinks, including pouring wine for you if you’ve purchased a bottle, but this also did not happen. As I said, I usually dislike complaining about any dining experience but when you are paying for a party of 8 at an establishment like Malone’s, one would expect more.

    Food is excellent, but he waiter was very inattentive and grumpy. Drinks had to be asked several times to be served and he said he had forgotten. At the end, he brought the bill without offering dessert and coffee or saying anything. When we asked for coffee he said he would bring it and he never came back, 20 minutes later when he looked for the restaurant he said he didn't have it and it was late (!). But he had kept us waiting and he hadn't warned us
