Long Business Description

Malone's opened when Scotts Valley was a small single stoplight town and horses shared our streets. We've been serving the county's largest - and best - burgers ever since!  We are also well-known for our St. Paddy's Day celebration, when we serve over 450 pounds of corned beef and cabbage!

Relax under our shady oak trees in our beautiful outdoor patio, sip your favorite wines on Wine Down Wednesday, get onstage for Karaoke on Saturday nights, or enjoy live music on the patio on Fridays.

Our town has added a few stoplights and the horses are kept inside the fence now, but at Malone's you can still feel the "down home" atmosphere. Our staff, an abundant plate of savory fare, and a friendly smile await you.

I went in today and I can tell you that the place now has a different vibe and feel. Don’t get me wrong, I loved what Patti had and have always been a fan of Malone’s, but the new owners seem intent on giving you a different type of dining and entertainment experience and it is exciting for our town.

The feel is sort of a rustic look that they are wanting to have there. The bar has been redone, maybe not completely, but it has some nice editions including 16 beers on tap (see picture) and a brighter and more open feel.

The dining area is still very much the same with some cosmetic changes and brighter colors which is welcomed. One thing I really like is that you no longer have two entrances, one in the dining area and one in the bar as they closed the dining room door and now you enter from the bar area which I think is a great idea. In talking with Taylor, he was telling me how he wanted to make it all tie in together instead of having a feel of two different places. And it works!

The menu definitely has some changes, yet they have kept some of the things that made Malone’s famous such as their burgers. I had the “Hitchcock” burger which was outrageous in taste with Applewood smoked bacon, gouda cheese, jalapeño jam, onion strings and chipotle. It went so well together that I do not know if I will order anything else the next time I go in. The french fries are now the thinner ones, which were definitely good, although I am more of a steak fries kind of guy. But that is just a preference as the new ones were definitely delicious.

I thought that the coolest thing was the presentation and that was how they now brand an “M” on the hamburger bun. I know, I know, it is a small thing, but I thought it was a very nice and classy touch!
The total for my lunch was about $17 which is to be expected, with a quality lunch like this.

I will definitely be back!

The absolute BEST hamburgers ANYWHERE. The cobb burger is to die for. Great atmosphere, nice people. A perfect place for any type of outing like a "date night" or just friends going out to have a glass of wine and some good food. You will NOT be disappointed.
