Malone's American Cafe
Malone's provides a casual option for lunches, dinners and after-work drinks for the suit-and-tie crowd. Often mistaken to be American, Malone's is actually a Canadian chain (a wooden Canadian Mountie stands near the front!). A big, broad bar stretches the length of the interior. It is the place to get an ESPN fix or try your luck on the pool tables upstairs. Enjoy American fare in hearty American servings. Prepare to loosen those pants after dining on the burger platters. The menu displays some depth in its wide offering of pastas, Tex-Mex, and pan-Asian dishes.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to write a review. I am frequently here in Shanghai (from Boston, MA USA) on business and the food is the most troublesome part of my trips. Now that we have found Malone's we know we will be sustained during our time here.
The burger was fantastic....just perfect. Two others had the sirloin steak and one had the chicken alfredo. All meals were exceptional.
Malones is popular with the foreigners living in the suburbian villa compounds outside Shanghai, who do not really know where else to go to in Shanghai. They mix at Malones with business travellers and tourists.
There is a Philippino band playing every night, which makes it a noisy affair.
Service is very, very attentive and quick. The burgers are definitely among the best in town.
The place is comparatively pricey, which keeps Chinese guests away.
Informal and always very lively during week-ends. Very friendly staff.
Good burgers and chicken wings.
Special events on Thanks giving, halloween, Mardi gras and so on.
To be recommended to anyone missing a littele western atmosphere.
Malones has some of the best food in town and currently has a good cover band on weekends. You won't get bother by women of the night, and it is a good hangout for foreiegners of all nationalities and local Chinese friends.
Just got back from there. Great times was had by all. The burgers, the Americana, the very pretty staff all added to the good times. Go there if you miss home or you just want to see what Americans are like in Shanghai. Wild!!!
I enjoyed the atmosphere at Malone's, the friendly waitresses and the good food obviously was a plus. I had the Steak Burrito, quite filling, actually could only eat half of it, due to the large portion. They had my favorite mexican beer as well (Sol).....and i was unaware that on some nights you buy one and you get one free, that was a pleasant surprise. I would say to any tourist around the Pu Xi area, give Malones a try, you wont be disappointed.

i really enjoy the music from the Filipino band there are all great!!!!!!!! its a good place specially at night,for those who love a classic rock and roll music?????????? this is the right place for us!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Burger I had is the best in Shanghai. The beef just melted in my mouth. I would definately go back and eat there. The live music was a plus, they played good songs. The service is bad because they are not attentive and if you needed something, they only bring it if you ask. The cost is a pricey for Shanghai and even a little more pricey for America (if you convert the price to US Dollars). Overall, if you want to get away from Shanghai, this is the place...
