Good Steak , good value, Good service

We stop at this restaurant at at least once a year while on our way to or from visits to family in Kansas. It is near the Fairfield Inn in Effingham. The prices are good for nicely executed steaks, cooked to the temperature requested. Our server avidly tried to upsell us on various items, and then... read more

Service was terrible, ate a burger late at night that was very good, but I ordered decaf coffee and she gave me regular coffee ( I cannot taste the difference ) and when she refilled my cup I asked if it was decaf she said yes. I was awake all night from the caffine. Husband had to wait a long... More

This easy to access steakhouse is right off of Interstate 70. The staff is friendly and the food has always been great. The one time that my meal was not as expected, the waitress was accommodating and returned with the perfect meal - no hassles. The appetizers are great and the steaks are so juicy. My tea glass is always... More

Crowded on a Sunday evening but even with plenty of staff we waited and waited and waited for someone to even acknowledge us after we were seated. After about 15 minutes and getting up to ask if anyone was ever going to come to our table, we finally were able to get drinks and dinner ordered. Turned out it was... More

No complaints here about the service. My order was taken soon after sitting down and the meal was served very quickly. The blue cheese lettuce head salad was fine. The steak was fair, and the bacon wrapping the meat really did not add much flavor. The broccoli portion was not very large and it was scattered unattractively around the plate.... More

My husband and I ate at the Lone Star. Our server Christy was very friendly and helpful. I asked for extra napkins and then later more salad dressing and she was happy and helpful and quick. Husband had a ribeye which was served hot and was good. Baked sweet potato was very good, the Brocholli cheese casserole was very tasty.... More

They have closed most of the lone star steakhouses around so I saw this one and stopped in and the food and service was good. Wish we still had one where I live.

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.

We had a very nice server who is very personable, but she was late and bringing everything out, very forgetful, and had to apologize many times. I have a two-year-old and it took 40 minutes for our food to come out. There may have been seven people in the restaurant, so it was not as if they were busy. It... More
