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

The food was terrific. Service was outstanding. We didn't have to wait long either to get a table for 8.

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

I am not impressed by the chains but the food at this Lone Star was very good I really don't have an affinity for one restaurant chain over the other but now I will choose Lone Star over the other steak houses.

Yes, I did.......it was a bit out of my comfort zone when going to my favorite "beef house" in town. But, I wanted to try the Chicken salad w/Avocado, and I'm glad I did. It was a tasty treat. The service was on top of things and their special margarita was right on the money! It was a good meal.

Lone Star is our favorite steak house in Bloomington-Normal. We usually visit about every other month, not because we don’t like it, but because there is an insane amount of restaurant choices in the area. The servers at this location are always friendly and helpful, and most of them do a good job of making you feel at home. On... More
