I think what Malone's problem is that it has way too many things on the menu, and while the food is fresh and tasty it could be a lot better with a smaller menu and better ingredients. Last time I was there the sandwich was good but the fries were nothing special, the salad with it was as boring as... More

Stopped for lunch after renting a kayak at Dow's Lake. Attentive service, cold beer, ok food, with a beautiful breeze and a great view.

Had staffs get together with pre booking and it was great. We spent 4 hours and had a good food and wine. The outside lake view was beautiful and we had a memorable fun. They allowed us to play from our own player with portable speaker. The first welcome from the owner and the waitress was so good. But after... More

We had the fish and was very dry, but great location view of the lake. The entree seemed to be large enough. I would go back and try something else. Service was slow because of the tulip festival, very busy but waiter pleasant.

Once again to feed a coach load of passengers, quickly and efficiently is not an easy task. We were able to place our orders ahead by telephoneand this decision allowed us the luxury of viewing the beautiful display of Tulips (yes it is Tulip Festival time in beautiful Ottawa) before breakfast. Our breakfast was served piping hot with a view... More

I was visiting a friend in Ottawa and we went to the Tulip Festival. There is a lovely pavilion with several restaurants and decided to try Malones as Lago is only open evenings. This restaurant has a great location so I guess they think they don't have to make any effort, at all, to attract people. We ordered wine and... More

We booked half the restaurant for family and friends for our wedding. After the ceremony, dinner was served - by all accounts everybody enjoyed the meal. Should have reviewed earlier but had other things on my mind. After reading a few "not so good" remarks I thought that I had to chime in. Made plans with the owner, everything handled... More

I guess they think tourists will never be back anyway or they just don't care. We were a group of 8 locals and only one of us thought his/her meal was OK.

My wife got me a Groupon to the Malone's Lakeside Grill for my birthday in December 2016. In January, twice in Feb and twice in March I tried to make a reservation and I was told that they are closed for a wedding or other excuses. Finally was able to make a reservation for April 16th. We arrived and were... More

It's a great location, we had a Groupon, so we went for dinner. It was OK, large portions, but nothing memorable about it in preparation or presentation. But then.... we were given no cutlery with our appetizer. We had to wait about 5 minutes for cutlery after our entree arrived. Our chosen dessert literally had to be baked as we... More
