We enjoyed a family birthday dinner recently. The wait staff were very attentive and very helpful. The meals were huge but luckily there were options for smaller appetites. My only concern was the noise, not somewhere to go for a quiet dinner.

Lone Star is very generous with there meals and you never leave hungry!!......but I do find the restaurant in Rotorua to dark and very loud. For the first time, I didnt enjoy my meal (I usually do). My pork was so overcooked and dry, it wasn't funny. I'm too shy to send back, but o well........

Went there on 21/08/2014 we had a great dinner next to the fire place. Great company and good staff. Recommend this place for a decent feed at good prices.

I was unapologetically served a raw, cold 350 gram sinew-laden ribeye at this otherwise reliable NZ steakhouse chain. Admittedly, I asked for it rare but as I understand that still implies that the fat and sinew should be rendered. I sent it back but nothing could save this but a genuine apology. It remained unsaved. Whoever cooked it should change... More

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
