Wonderful service

We can't go past Lonie, the service is always just what you want, warm and attentive, no frosty cold shoulders and waiters not catching your eye.....thanks Zak and Lauren, awesome. And meals come out super-fast too, no slacking in the kitchen....

The staff were friendly and great service. The best food I've had in a long time. Definitely a must visit when you are in the area.

Just had to visit the Lone Star when in Queenstown with my family as it is my favourite restaurant. As soon as we stepped foot in the door, all the staff were very polite, and a smiling girl - Alex, I think her name was, took as upstairs to choose where we would like to sit. She was very polite...

Came here as a large group and they were able to accommodate us and let us split the bill which was greatly appreciated. Enormous meals, absolutely delicious, great service and the best cocktails in Queenstown!!

Vegetarian burrito was amazing as well as chocolate pudding/fudge for dessert. Great location near the town centre and busy nightlife. Service and atmosphere was great

OMG Maverick Fillet and Stir Crazy Sirloin were top notch. Best Steak I have ever tasted. Although the place was full the service was rather quick. The meal portions are rather large and you can guarantee that you'll be taking home a doggie bag. Although it was rather loud, who cares the food experience outweighed the noise. Totally loved the...

Ate here after a long day of skiing. I was worried about the etiquette surrounding eating at a restaurant in ski gear, but no one seemed to mind as the atmosphere is rather chill. Ate here with 2 others. First, drinks were ordered. I had the Juice Newton which was really tasty and refreshing and my mother had a wine,... More

The Lone Star Cafe and Bar has an extensive menu, casual yet professional service and excellent tasty meals that are renowned for their generous servings. The ribs are to die for as are some of the many old favourites on the menu.

Had a great meal at LoneStar last night. The meals were huge and tasted awesome. Table service was top notch too and the staff were all very friendly. Prices are about what you'd expect, not exactly a cheap eats restaurant but we felt it was worth it! I recommend the Milky Bar Pud for dessert!
