Much better this time around

We had excellent service this time and we tipped accordingly. Food was served in the proper order and the food was prepared as ordered. We had a very good waitress, she made sure that we had everything we needed, asked if we wanted bread, checked on refills, everything. It's difficult to find... read more

Horrific experience!!!! We have eaten here before a little over a year ago and enjoyed it, not this time however. They changed their menu and really changed the quality of the food. I got the fish and chips and the fish was worse than the frozen fish you would take out of freezer and throw in the oven. Horrible taste,... More

Waitress do not have sections, they do the thing of next one through the door, gets that waitress. They end up with tables too spead througout the place. This severly affects service...doesn't make a lot of sense. Your service is going to suffer, and it does. You end up having to flag down a waitress that isn't yours for service.... More

My wife and I ate here this weekend. We both ordered steak dinners which were 23.99 a piece. The steaks came out a short time later. They were both very plain tasting without much flavor, not the best cuts of meat either. Expected a little more for the $$. Logans is a much better value for the money but if... More

This place is an embarrasment to the lone star name- it was dingy and old, waitress was very nice steak good, salad had watered down dressing - never eat here and we will never eat at any lone star after this!

This restaurant is getting dated. The food is good, but the service is definitely lacking. Went for Sunday Dinner, arrived at noon and left at 2:00 p.m. Waited more than 45 minutes for food to arrive.

We've always liked Lone Star Steakhouse. The one closest to us closed. I had the Lone Star Sirlon and was very pleased with it. The steak was tender and had a really good flavor. They did have to take it back and cook it a little bit more.

I have been here twice now (hoping it was just a one time thing) and both times the lettuce is brown and soggy just not fresh. Also they water down the salad dressing if I am gonna pay $13 for a salad it needs to be fresh!!! Go to outback I have never had bad food there and it's just... More
