Pleasantly surprised

Near my hotel, Sat at bar, friendly service. Good custom Margherita, made to my requested specs. Decent choice for a steak dinner.

Worst food I've had in a restaurant in awhile. Shrimp was frozen, bread cold, and steak I would trade for a hot dog. Keep on driving.

The restaurant had a good menu, and the food was average. This was mostly a steak and potatoes type of place. The waitress forgot to bring the beer which my wife had ordered.

Our favorite 'Texas Style' restaurant is Lone Star. The meals are always consistent. My husband usually orders a rack of BabyBack Ribs - they are always fall off the bone - regardless the time of day we stop-in. Often I'll order the Sweet Potato - as a meal & they serve a pretty large potato. They serve cold beer &... More

Had dinner with a family member while staying at the Hampton Inn next door. The food here was very good. We were surprised because when we walked in, there were few people in the restaurant. We had grilled chicken and chicken fried steak. Both were excellent and nothing went back to the kitchen. The service was slow even with hardly... More

First time dining at the Lone Star. Service was awesome, food was OK, beer was fantastic! Close proximity to hotel we were staying at and therefore, a discount. Would I return - absolutely!!!

As my title says and my rating...this restaurant is a basic steakhouse with little to call you back. My steak was okay, sides were okay and cocktail / beer selection was okay. Service was good. I have to say that Longhorn across the street...doesn't offer much more.

We chose Lone Star for 2 reasons. First, we were craving steak, and second it was snowing and this was in the parking lot of the hotel. Service was pleasant. We chose to sit in the bar and the bartender was very quick to take our order. That is where the good stops. From the salads to the steak to... More

This restaurant was very near our motel which is why we chose it because my first requirement was steak. Our meal was very good. Both the baked potato and the steak was prepared to my liking as was my husband's. The service was very good as well.

Unfortunately, this steak house has gone the way of so many before it.... Boring! They took away, from the menu, my favorite treat; prime rib. They used to have this amazing rub that made the meat delicious. Now, not so much. The sides are tasteless and the prices remain high. Not worth it, especially when its location happens to be...
