My Wife and I Love the menu and the quiet atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The owner often stops to check on how our meals are. I also love the draft beer available.

The filet that I got was so juicy and flavorful. The buttered potatoes were so good. It's been such a long time since I have had a steak this good I must say thank you and I will remember this place again when I come back to visit. Keep up the amazing cooking I loved dinner so much.

Pleasantly surprised. Came for early dinner. Immediately greeted and seated. Sat in a booth which was small and felt intimate. Decor is clean, modern, well done and simple. Service staff were really polite and sweet. Food was really good and not much of a wait. I got ahi tuna salad. Gobbled every last bite. Boyfriend got chicken parmigiana. Huge serving.... More

We had a shrimp appetizer in Buffalo blue cheese sauce that had such a great flavor that we kept the sauce to dip our steaks in! My husband had prime rib and I had Delmonico steak. Both were so delicious. Our waitress was very sweet and a great server. Altogether a great time.

Filet was AMAZING. Will definitely stop in again. Great service and the food was all a round good. We walked in at around closing time and they still gave us the full menu and they had it out fast. They didn't rush us at all to eat and they it was all a round a great visit.

Driving through Malone, NY we decided to try Donovan's Steak house. Food was delicious and reasonable. It worked for us that they open early for dinner ( 3:00 on) as we still had a long drive to Vt. The dining rooms were lovely traditional steakhouse decor and there was an inviting bar area as well as outside patio earing area.... More

Great atmosphere. Cozy in the winter. Outdoor deck for summertime dining. One of our favorite go to dining experiences. Not cheap but neither is the food. Respectable portions. Food allergy aware not just their ingredients but their preparation!

We were in town to visit my Aunt Jane and so we decided to have dinner here. It was a pleasant evening so we chose to eat outside on the patio. There was a nice breeze as we slipped our drinks and waited for our food. The French onion soup was very good but my salad was a little wilted... More

Donovan's is a very good place to eat. I have eaten there several times and have not had a bad meal. Their beer and wine selections are very good also. Definitely recommend if you are in Malone.
