So... for $38 steak meal half the steak was gristle, the plate had more deep fried potatoes that tasted oily, coleslaw was average... the fried egg was so overcooked there was no egg white to be seen it was all crackled. The mushrooms Oh wow we got lucky and had them from the 'bottom of the pot' so that justified... More

Came here 4 times already and it's always packed with people. Love the variety of meals offered and love their creme brulee the most. They do special deal when you have your birthday dinner here with friends.

Right next to where I stayed so a good place to eat. I have eaten at a few Lone Star restaurants and the appeal for me is always the decor and the rustic American style eatery. Historically though I have found that the use of microwaves and disengaged staff just ruins the experience. In this case the staff were great,... More

I had a couple of friends over from Los Angeles and Vancouver and one wanted lamb and the other a big steak so headed back to the Lone Star where I'm always happy with the meals. It was Thursday and I was concerned that it may be packed and we'd have to wait but were pleasantly surprised to get a... More

I had a steak that was full of gristle and it was a battle to eat it. The accompanying "buffalo" chips were monstrously large, over cooked, and greasy to boot. If you like having huge amounts of food on your plate and don't care about quality, then this is probably the place for you.

We visited Lone Star during a WOW weekend. Obviously a very busy time for any Restuarant in Wellington. Our group of 19 included two children, one with a number of allergies. Alex, our waitress was amazing. Efficient, courtesy and very kind. When our allergy girl missed out on dessert she organised a t shirt that saved the day. The food... More

Service was slow!!!! Ribs were tough and poorly seasoned. Ribeye steaks were cooked wrong and I'm pretty sure the cut of meat was sirloin not ribeye. Expensive mistake! The waitress was friendly and apologetic for the slow service. Would not recommend !

Lone Star is a fantastic restaurant with very friendly service, delicious food and big portions. If you are looking to order a main, then i would highly recommend sharing and appetizer. The ribs are delicious as is the Dixie Chicken. Actually you wont be disappointed with any of the offerings on the menu. This is also a fun and family... More
