Came here for a birthday dinner while staying at a B&B in Versailles. B&B owner highly recommended this restaurant. We had a reservation and were seated within 5 minutes of arriving on a busy Friday night. The Lexingtonian salad is delicious! We ordered the Filet Oscar with Potato Gruyere Croquettes. The steak was cooked to perfection and the potatoes were... More

I love this place. Can't help it. There is soooo much to choose from. Essentially three different restaurants (pub/bar food, sushi, steakhouse), but you can order from all menus wherever you choose to sit. I have never had a bad meal here. The atmosphere is nice. The location is convenient. Trust me on this...

We visit Lexington often for business and always make sure we stop in Malone's for a delicious steak and unlimited salad and bread. Always great service and consistent high quality dishes.

From the Crab Rangoon, the Lexitonian salad, steak and to the cheesecake, everything was delicious. Also, the bar made the best Old Fashioned that I have ever had.

We had previously been to this restaurant in other locations and found it to be great. Unfortunately the Malone's at Palomar Centre was a disappointment. The food and service was only average. Would recommend a different Malone's location for your dining enjoyment.

We ate at Malone's on a Thursday evening about 6:30. Wait time was to be 40-50 minutes. I would definitely recommend making a reservation. We were able to find a table in the bar area so didn't have to wait so long. If you are wanting a quiet dining experience wait for a table in Malone's. At this location you... More

Our first trip to this location but second trip to Malones. The steaks are very good but on the visit there were two small issues. First, we used their call ahead seating and arrived ten minutes before the reservation. We waited patiently as many were seated before us and after 45 minutes I approached the hostess and for some reason... More

Our church group was gathering in Lexington for a meeting and needed a good meal and time to converse and discuss events. We enjoyed a great lunch. The steaks are very good and properly done. The fish sandwich was tasty and was all I wanted. You should order the bottomless salad for a good fresh start with your meal. The... More
