Lone Star is just next to our hotel. We popped in around 9pm on a Thursday. The place wasn't packed but there were a goodly amount of people. It is worth noting that they were serving only from the bar menu (nachos, pizzas, ribs, wings, quesadillas, etc.) after 9. The service was friendly and the overall vibe was great. We... More

After eating my $36 steak, it was advertised that it would come with steak, chips and coleslaw. The steak was good, cooked well. The chips were not chips though, they were potatoes cut in half, deep fried and so dry that they hardly had any potato in them. Coleslaw was just as bad, couldn't eat more than one fork full...

Have stopped going to Lone Star due to the terrible service I have ever received. The service is beyond slow. When I was there with a group of friends, I was about to walk out due to fact that they took our orders and took nearly 2 hours to get our meals to us. Was ridiculous. Will never be back.

Family dinner with two kids. Food was very good. I had the trump special which was beautiful. Hubby enjoyed his steak. Kids meals were good. Service was ok but another restaurant where you have to organise your own drink refills. They gave the kids free t-shirts which was very kind.

Due to our first choice being unavailable we thought we'd try Lone Star again after years of not bothering. Wished we hadn't. The food was over priced and poor. I had ribs that were tough, all our potatoes were dry and the coleslaw cheap rubbish. Add to that we weren't served by adults. Sorry guys but never again

For a place that charges like it's a fine dining establishment it was very disappointing. The chicken salad was more overpoweringly fishy Caesar dressing and the very expensive sirloin came off as stewed and cheap despite the price tag. Not worth it!

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
