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.

Traveling through the area, and Lone Star was a selection from my GPS search. We had great service by Christy. Our ribeye steak and steakhouse salad dinners were very good. Restaurant was very clean with a pleasant atmosphere. We did have to wait a while for our bread to come from the oven....which was then served to us piping hot!!... More

The food is just ok. Service is terrible. Expect your dinner to take you at least two hours. The waiter was terrible at refilling drinks, and didn't offer us any rolls with our meal. This experience has happened the last two times we have been there and we wont be going back. Go to TGIFridays or Ruby Tuesdays instead.

We came in with a large group when the restaurant was relatively busy, but we were seated within five minutes. There were many selections and my meal was delicious. My dad raved about the steaks for a while afterwards. The restaurant was very clean and the servers were friendly. The atmosphere was very comfortable. :)

My wife and I stopped here on 2/19/2013 at 12:45pm for lunch. There were a lot of people there but, we didn't have to wait to be seated. The waitress, Karly was very helpful and friendly. She kept our glasses full and checked on us several times. The food came hot and just the way we ordered it. We like... More

Needed a fill-up before the last leg to Chicago and the weather was drifting toward an ice-storm. Saw their sign (by the Hampton Inn) and decided that we might as well get some coffee and may a quick lunch. We walked in the door and were met immediately and seated despite the Sunday family lunch crowd. The waitress was upbeat,... More
