This is the second time I have been disappointed in Lone Star Wanaka. I have eaten in various Lone Star's throughout NZ but feel Wanaka is letting the brand down. The restaurant was moderately busy but we still had an hour wait to get a table. Table service was pretty prompt but we waited a long time for our meals... More

We aimed for an early meal, 2 adults & 3 kids. Everything was perfect, including the steak which I'm pretty severe about. Lovely desserts. Our advice, beat the rush.

Love this place, always have, delightful staff, pleasant surroundings and always a fabulous meal. (Could do with dusting the top of the lights and speakers though) We will definitely be back for another Lone Star experience.

We usually have a good experience at different Lone Star restaurants as there is a great selection for all and generous portions. However our recent meal there left a bitter taste in the mouth, however there was a silver lining! We were told of a 40 minute wait which was more like an hour by the time we were seated.... More

We arrived and got told it would be a 20minute wait, ended up being an hour and 30 mins. When we finally got seated there were 10 of us and we got given 2 tables.. 1 was a 4 seater and 1 was a 2 seater and we were only given 7 menus. We ordered within 5 mins of being... More

Plenty of food on the menu to pick from and reasonably priced. The grandchildren loved colouring in while waiting on our meals :)

Always look forward to a meal at The Lone Star. First time in Wanaka. Staff were genuinely friendly with prompt and attentive service. The food as always was large and delicious. A very enjoyable evening meal. Would definately come back again.

We visited Lone Star Wanaka a couple of years ago and didn't have the greatest experience so were hoping for better this time around. We visited twice over the Christmas-New Year break, the first time was perfect and couldn't fault it however the second visit a couple of days later was not so great. We were seated with two large...

We were staying in Wanaka for New years and went to the LoneStar for a meal. This restaurant has a great atmosphere, fantastic food and outstanding service. At the end of our meal and a few drinks we opted to use the courtesy van (there were 6 of us) and not only did they drop us back they also returned... More

We had two meals at this restaurant and both meals were great. Plenty of food in the main meal, so didn't need starter. Staff very helpful and friendly. Well worth a visit.
