With all the competition out there Lone Star still delivers up some good food. We had some great servers with excellant service. Hope to visit them again soon.

They did better this time for the service, but amusing in a way. Our waitress was training another. They missed serving the bread. We had to ask the server that brought our entree's for that. She said I'm sorry they missed that earlier. So, our waitress training another...well she was training another but doesn't quite have it all down. They... More

To me, for being a chain, Lone Star Steakhouses have good quality food, it's not too pricey and we've not had a problem with the cook/kitchen of any of them. Service though at this particular location is lacking. So far, first time we've a problem with this at a Lone Star. Our waitress was not that attentive and it didn't... More

The restaurant is not very large but well staffed. The food is ok. The steaks were not quite up to a Texans standards, But for this area were quite good.

Their Bloomin' Onion is awesome! It's been a few years since I've been in there (there's over 150 restaurants in this town), but some things are so good you never forget. Cool decorations & atmosphere was comfortable & friendly.

Good causal atmosphere. Reasonable prices, good food and service. Nothing special about inside decorations.

We ate here on a Saturday afternoon. It was about 3 PM so it wasn't busy at all. Our waitress was nice and waited on us promptly, but the kitchen staff must have been overwhelmed by our order (there were 7 of us) or maybe they were understaffed. We waited quite a while for our food. The food was good,... More

To me, Lonestar has the best steak cut of the other steakhouses. Their baked potatoes are VERY good too. I do miss the hot links try used to have. The big ribeye steak is the most flavorable steak, but I have enjoyed most everything on the menu. The Bubba burger is great. I highly recommend this place.

Great food and service. Gets too noisy during late afternoon and evening. Hard to visit with people because the music is way too loud. Need to tone down the music a bit and they would get more customers.

This is a nice friendly place to visit for steak or chicken or a variety of other sandwiches and appetizers offered. Also nice dessert options. We had good waitress assisting us, and even though seemed to be somewhat new at this place, was knowledgeable in the menu and waited to be sure our steaks were cooked as we ordered them.... More
