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.
Awesome American style Sports Bar. Some of the best burgers I've had in the world -- thick, juicy, and full of flavor! Excellent house band. THe place is a party every night. Great beer and drink selection, and they even have "beer girls" like some U.S. bars do! Dressed in Heineken, Coors Light, etc., cute dresses.
Highly recommended, and apparently now with a Pudong location also.
I enjoyed the atmosphere, the live band makes Malones a fun place to hang out. But the food me and my girlfriend ordered was awful. I couldn't eat my Thai curry, I just left it there. The waitress didn't even ask about why it wasn't eaten. The focus is definitely on the band, which was not bad. I think it's one of the few places/bars for a live band in Shanghai. That's our favorite thing about Malone's.
I am from Europe but live in Shanghai. I think Malone's has a great reputation for several reasons. And I have to say, overall I like it so I go there about 3 times a month in average.
It's well located, it's cosy, there is outdoor space, the staff is friendly, the food comes in big portion (it's overall nice but do not expect anything fancy; a lot of the dishes are a bit gross, there to fill you up rather than giving you a dining experience). It's a bar after all, with good atmosphere and the drinks list is long... The margarita is not great, but I've still yet to find a place in Shanghai that does it just right, so no bad point there, really.
What I actually like at Malone's is the live band, called Art 6, part of the top-3 best music bands in Shanghai! They were invited to play at the Ceremony of the Paraolympics last Autumn so you can imagine they must be pretty good and friendly. They are good artists and those singers really make you feel like singing and dancing.
Anyone coming to Shanghai should visit that place in the evening, even if only once. This is a must-experience in SH.
EXCELLENT, simple excellent. Every bite is wonderful. We love the potato skins, the
burgers are the best.Take your loved one's to Malone's, breakfast, lunch or Dinner or
when you want some fine food that makes you feel wonderful.
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!!!!!!!!!!!!
Never Go! Airline Flight Crew Gives It a \"DOWN\"!
By A Yahoo Contributor, 2/8/10
Went with my US flight crew for Super Bowl “Monday” 2010. There is nothing good to say about the place. The big projection screen TV’s where dim and unwatchable. They ran out of Tiger Beer after the second round (during the “Super Bowl” you run out of a brand of beer at a bar?). Breakfast was included (only 4 choices) with your 100RMB admission. We wanted bar munchies during the game…told ”Not available”….During the Super Bowl! You’re kidding, right? I had to go directly to the manager to open up the grill to cook anything but eggs. Our waitress was incompetent. We had to flag her down constantly for drinks during the game. They wanted us to pay as we go. I insisted on a tab, which they finally agreed too. The food (nachos, wings etc) were less than TGI Fridays quality at Tony Roma prices. I had been there for dinner once before about six months ago and was unimpressed then. I know other people have written good reviews about the place, but I guess they were raised to have low expectations.
We had a Groupon for this place, thats the only reason we went there.
The food was very bland and boring. I had the mushroom truffle penne, he had the veggie flatbread. The food selection was lackluster.
I am a local shanghainese. I love Chinese food and American burger. Well, I finally found a place where I can eat REAL American burger in Shanghai. I've just been there last weekend. It was the first time. Found it by chance. They have good food, well service, real drinks [some places serve fake alcohol :(], excellent live band perform well-known songs. It's a must-go place to enjoy your weekend.
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.
