Disappointing experience

Could be so much better - all our meals were disappointing and this isn't the first time. Staff are friendly and its the usual Lone Star decor but the food let's them down.

Really big serves. U won't go home hungry. The ribs were pretty ordinary. Would go for the steak. Every one who had steak enjoyed it. The lamb shank good as well. But quality less than great for the ribs. Tough and sauce all over the place. Get a booth for the family.

Great food. We had a great evening here and ate way to much. Thought the collection/drop home option was great and ment we could all have a alcoholic drink Little bit more pricey than I hoped but great food and brilliant atmosphere. Highly recommend

Friendly, quick and great service. Tasty food and great dairy free options for my wife! Relaxed, comfortable atmosphere - no complaints! Large main servings so no entree required. We will be back!

WE ate here twice, on a Sunday night and on a Tuesday night. They must have had different chefs for both nights. Sunday night was perfect, I had Dixie Chicken, it was just beautiful, everything was just perfect, tasty, chicken was tender and juicy. My friend had a steak, extremely well done, and it was perfect. The lamb was perfect.... More

We went to the Lone Star with the Sofa Ski camp group. Great pre-dinner drinks downstairs at the bar and then we moved upstairs to a private room for a group dinner. We were picked up by the courtesy bus and the driver recommended the fillet steak. Steak was great and staff were wonderful. Just needed a steak knife.

This is a great building, but the restaurant doesn't live up to it. Staff were disinterested and overly casual. Food was fairly tasty but barely warm.

I would highly recommend this restaurant. It has a relaxed and fun environment and is well priced. The portions are huge and the food is delicious.

Another fabulous meal from the Lone Star team. We caught the courtesy coach & had an early dinner with the kids. This would be at least the 10th time we have dined here & our Aussie cousins who dined with us were very impressed. Lone Star you guys rocked again! Cheers
