There are better choices in Effingham

My parents live outside of Effingham and my dad picked this place for his birthday. There was nothing about our experience we would call better than average. Waited 40 minutes at 5:30 on Saturday night. As we waited, my husband had a margarita which he said was very weak. Four of the five of us had... read more

The food was really good and the rolls were fresh and hot. Our waitress seemed less than thrilled to be there. She never asked us if we wanted drink refills. She also would disappear for long periods of time and the restaurant wasn't very busy so who knows where she was or what she was doing? I can tell you... More

We are in town monthly for classes, and enjoy Lone Star. The food is consistently good and fresh. The service is customer focused and they make you want to come back.

We ordered the bacon wrapped sirloin and asked for medium-rare. Both steaks were cooked perfectly, which is what you expect from a steak house, but don't always get. Fast service and friendly staff.

We had been to this restaurant before and I had given it a good write up. When we were there recently the food was not good at all. I ordered crispy chicken over salad and the lettuce was limp, wet and unappetizing. My husband had a grilled chicken sandwich and it was tasteless. Very convenient to the hotel we stayed... More

The ribs are very good. They handle large groups very well. Recommend this place because it is consistent.

We ate here on Sunday, May 25. Four of us ordered ribeyes and one of us order a KC strip. When our steaks arrived, only one of us got a ribeye. The others were all KC strips. When we brought the issue to the attention of our waitress, she sent over the manager. The manager swore that they were ribeyes.... More

It was listed as a gluten free friendly restaurant, however, I do NOT recommend. The menu was very limited. The salad dressing was limited to oil & vinegar, you couldn't order anything with seasoning, they do not have gluten free buns, and sides were very limited. My meal ended up being a baked potato!

Sat at a high table in the bar. Had to tell bartender how to make an old fashion. Food standard fare, good for the price. Wait staff spent lots of time at corner of bar playing with their cell phones instead of tending to customers. We were never asked if we would like another drink or if we would like... More

I went to this establishment with some family members. The food is good, but nothing unusual. It is a little heavy for my taste, but it is okay. Staff was nice and place was kept up.
