“Not as good as Queenstown Lone Star”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Ate at Queenstown Lone Star and had a good meal. The food unfortunately didn't stack up at LS Wanaka, but the service was really good.

“Part of my 50th birthday week in Wanaka”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

My husband and two special friends shared a week in beautiful Wanaka. We had the lovely presidential suite at wyndham. This is a driving distance out of town so the pick up and drop off service was such a good option if we all wanted a drink. Warning girls two entrees are more than enough and we took food home. The service from all staff is warm, friendly and efficient. For a casual, relaxed dining experience it ticked all the boxes.

“Birthday diner”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

On the 5th of may it was my husbands birthday. We decided to come to Lone Star as we had been there just the month before for our wedding Anniversary. And it was Amazeballs. So family in tow away we went. The staff were simply amazing. Had to laugh as we were taking some family pics one of the staff from nowhere appeared and was in the pic with us with a great big smile on her face. We had a awesome meal the kids were happy (which takes a lot as they Fussy). Can not thank the staff enough for there attention to detail and catering to our every need. Will recommend the Lone Star to all. And i am in the right place to do so as i own a daytime Cafe in Wanaka lol. And just to top it all of i have just received in the mail a $50 Meal Voucher, Thank you for that you Rock at Lone Star Wanaka.

“Awesome”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

If I could add more stars I would. I have been meaning to do this for a while but time keeps moving on as it does.

THE BEST SERVICE EVER!!!! COULD NOT SING YOUR PRAISES ANY HIGHER.

After a lovely day at Warbirds, we retired to our hotel in Hawea. Went down to the restaurant at 6pm. Too full to take us. Booked a table for 8:30. Went back for table at booked time, waited half an hour, got told still too busy they would not be able to feed us, as we stared at an empty table.
Feeling very hungry and disappointed, knowing nothing else was open in Hawea, I rung The Lone Star in the hope it was open. They said we are about to close the kitchen but they would keep it open for us.

I'm so glad they did! We were made to feel so welcome and not like a pain at all. Food was fantastic and service was impeccable. I really mean that! You guys made our trip. We had fun watching the planes and car racing but your service really stood out. You could certainly teach a lot of other businesses some tips, you leave them all for dust.

We walked out very happy to say the least. All our friends have heard the story lol and we will definitely be back next time we are up there.

AWESOME JOB and thank you so much!!!!!!!!
