When we arrived (7:30pm) we explained that we did have much time and would order mains straight away. Food arrived 1 hour later, I ordered fries, received Luke warm mashed potatoes but by that time would have eaten anything. My daughter's food was also not what she ordered but we just wanted to eat and leave. Staff pleasant but ineffectual.... More

We decided to go here as we felt like a Steak Meal after travelling from Australia that morning and driving down from Auckland.. We were shown to a table by the window and given some menus we decided to order a beer and a L&P and when we placed this order we also ordered our meals. We both ordered a... More

Love this restaurant! Making a booking for Lonestar is nearly impossible after the marathon. The owner got to know us even though we go there once a year. He was kind enough to serve bread to the guests still waiting for a table. Service they provide is a hundred percent and their Ribs are to die for.

My wife and I tried this place because it had a good menu. We were a little put off that it was a franchised steaky place. After talking to the owner we were won over. We both had the Lamb shanks, done perfectly and the portion was just right. The service and attention from the wait staff was excellent. I... More

My partner and I had dinner here during a recent stay in rotorua. The service was fantastic and the meals were well portioned. What you would expect from a chain steak house was exactly what we got. It's worth mentioning that the jack Daniels chocolate pudding is a must have!!

Music too loud. Asked for a medium rare steak and was given medium on one side and well done on the other. Left hungry. My own fault I should have said something but hate to offend them when they looked to be doing their best.

We arrived in without a booking on a cold,wet and miserable Saturday evening, lucky enough to get a car space outside. We were warned, to their credit, that there would be a 45minute to 1 hour wait for a table. Had our hearts set on it though didn't want to battle the elements outside looking for another place. Had 2... More
