Enjoyed it.

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...

The menu offers a variety and the food is very good. I did have a bad experience with luncheon steak that was very tough, but the manager made up for this by giving me a free steak. This is an exception though and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant.

my wife and I shared 2 steaks: sirloin and rib eye. Both very good. Waitress was very pleasant and did a good job.

Our party of 12 opted to have dinner here since we were all staying at The Hampton Inn located a short stroll behind the restaurant. The service was excellent. Our server, Angelina, is the living definition of efficiency! We are not a demanding group. Humor tends to abound and Angelina fit right in. The food is exactly what you'd expect... More

Food and drink was good. Service was excellent as we also had 6 kids to deal with...Had the burger and the "ultimate" margarita" which were both good.

A group of 9 of us went in on a Tuesday night. We had two servers assigned to our table. Our food was fast. Steaks were cooked the way we ordered. All 9 orders we spot on. Fun place to eat and walking distance from our hotel.
