I really enjoy a good sized meal with a lively, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Lone star provides a generous helping of quality food. The staff are fun and pronto with service however still give you the space for personal and uninterrupted dining. Great atmosphere for any occasion!!!

After receiving an unexpected and very much appreciated $50.00 dining voucher in the post as part of a promotional initiative that Lone Star Nelson runs we set off for dinner.
We were most impressed by the friendly and professional service that we received. It was also noticeable to us how happy the team appeared in their work.
Our meals were delicious, being cooked exactly to our liking and also extremely generous in size (We had enough left overs to take home for our lunch the next day yum yum)
Many thanks Lone Star for a wonderful dining experience.

I loved the meal, the service and the menu. Especially the Lamb Salad and yoghurt and mint dressing. Keep it up guys, it works.

I have taken my children to Lone Star Nelson a handful of times over the last few years and the meals have always been good. This visit was no exception. I had the Johnny Cash Stash and my son had Cajun Chicken, medium size meals. Both meals were cooked to perfection, the chicken tasty, the coleslaw fresh and and chips crunchy and golden. The meal size was just right for me but my son said he thought he could have tackled the full sized meal. The other two children had hot dogs from the kids menu and their meals included a drink and ice cream dessert. My son had the Jack Daniels chocolate fudge pudding which I managed to cadge a spoonful of....YUM. The waiter was attentive and knew the specials. My only complaint would be the length of time it took for the meals to arrive - over half an hour. Too long when kids are waiting to eat. The restaurant was also quite loud, due to the wooden floor I guess. Overall a pleasant family dining experience. The bill of $95.00 not too bad for a treat.
