Interesting.

Our Texas Rose Onion appetizer took forever to receive. When we did get it, Manager Travis came to our table and was extremely apologetic. Restaurant was very busy. We were not in a hurry, and reassured Travis. Wait staff was great. Steaks/shrimp was good.

Chicken Caesar Salad was my choice. It was delicious. Ingredients were obviously fresh and the chicken juicy and tasty. I have been here before and they have their ups and downs. This visit was wonderful....the waitress was professional, helpful and attentive. Our order was taken quickly and our food order was prepared quickly and as ordered! Keep up the good... More

Stopped here on our way back home to WI. My husband ordered a medium cheeseburger. I ordered a chopped steak with garlic mashed potatoes. We waited over 1/2 hour for the food. Not sure what the problem was as there were not very many people in the restaurant. it was 3:30 when we arrived. My chopped steak was good, but... More

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 steaks for dinner. None... 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
