Malone's restaurant is most likely the best place in the area. The food quality, staff and service is second to none. We ate here multiple nights on our trip. Why search around if it's all offered here. Great bourbon selection too. Ask for Aaron to be your server, you'll appreciate his commitment to service.

I found getting seating on a Friday night a challenge but once sat, the wait staff was attentive. The food was good but the Lexingtonia salad was Wonderful. An endless bowl of crisp greens, tomatoes, bacon and tossed with the house creamy herb dressing was an experience worth repeating.

This place was wonderful. We asked the front desk where me and my boyfriend could go for dinner. They suggested this place and even gave us a card for priority seating and a free dessert.

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.
