My husband and I stopped by the restaurant on our trip. Although it might be tricky getting back to the restaurant, we were glad that we were able to find it. We were greeted and seated right away and the waitress came quickly to get us set up with drinks. We both ordered steaks and they were cooked to our... More

The other Lone Star restaurants we've stopped at in southern Illinois have had good service, fresh salads, and thoroughly decent steaks. They are almost always stacked at the doors for the supper crowd. This one was empty at 5:30 PM and service was still slow. The tablecloths are almost worn through. Salad was not fresh. We spent $53 for two... More

Have stopped here many of time on our way back from the south but will not do it again. We were there around 1:00. It wasn't busy. Had to wait to be seated. Went to the restroom and back and my dad had just gotten seated. Ordered the pork chop and took almost an hour to get our food. The... More

Got here about 5:30 on a Friday evening. We were able to be seated quickly, and the place was not too full. The waitress took a while to arrive at the table, and seemed to be new, or didn't care about her job one. She took our orders, and brought the drinks. She wasn't prompt to refill drinks until they...

The service was awful! It took forever for our order to arrive and when it did it was wrong. Had to ask for ketchup and drink refills multiple times before receiving them. And they weren't even busy. They forgot my salad and when I asked about it the waitress bit my head off. It was the worst $45 I ever... More

Overall, just not a great experience for the prices they charge. Service was just ok. Had to ask for things multiple times. Not very many food choices in mt Vernon, but won't be going back

Had there 3 course $12.99 special and had more than enough food. The staff were friendly and helpful and the meal arrived promptly even though it was Saturday night and the place was mobbed. The steak was very tender and the turtle cheesecake was a nice finishing touch. I would definitely dine there again

Service is hit or miss. Blooming onion lights up my life(can't get it anywhere else) and the steak and chicken dishes that I have had there are pretty darn good!

It took forever to get our food at this place. I thought we were going to have to gnaw on each other's arms before the food came. Also, we ordered the filets and I think one that they brought out was the bacon wrapped ribeye. At least the food was good?
