Thoroughly enjoyed a really good steak, awesome Customer Service from all the staff, lovely environment, really nicely decorated Restaurant and Bar, awesome to watch the rock climbing from our dinner table. Plus an additional bonus of the complimentary pick and drop off shuttle. Great night ! Thank you.

When were in Wanaka during a power outage and had to wait until the power came back on before they would let us in. The lamb shanks and lamb shoulder were delicious and very big. We could eat them all and they put the leftovers into a doggy bag to take home.

This visit to the Wanaka Lone Star is about the 4th or 5th in about 4 years and again it did not disappoint. We got the courtesy coach as we had a tribe of kids with us, so that meant we were there pretty early. Straight to our table when we arrived. The wait staff were great, meals timely, delicious...

My wife, granddaughter and I ate here fairly late one evening and were very pleasantly surprised with our experience. The staff were friendly and helpful, there was a good choice on the menue in both variety and sizes as well as for the granddaughter. The meals were well prepared and presented and there was a good selection of wines. We... More

My husband and I enjoyed an evening meal at the Lone Star on our final night in beautiful Wanaka. My husband had the Judge Roy Bean Dip for an entree and I had the prawns. Both serves were delivered promptly and were delicious. For mains I had the Johnny Cash Stash (chicken) and I was so glad that I only... More

1st time I went to Lone Star was in 2003 in Queenstown...wow what a buzz, free t shirt, amazing food - a real experience. NOW well this is (stupidly) the third time I have given this place my money and FOR SURE the last! For a place that charges more than most top chefs restaurants they should get Gordon Ramsey... More

We were seated at a table next to the glass window overlooking the climbing centre - which was still open and the kids loved watching people scaling the walls. We had nice meals, steak was cooked as ordered and a big plus was the choices for kids meals - lots of good options. The only downfall was the chips and... More

We went fairly late in the evening during the shoulder season and had a good time. The staff were friendly and I was taken back by how much I enjoyed the steak I had. I asked for it rare and they had seared it and warmed the centre correctly. It was awesome. We were one of the last tables in... More

Coleslaw and baked potatoes were nice but the ribs over cooked and bland - usually I would never leave ribs on the plate but on this occasion I struggled to get through even a third. On a positive note, management apologised and offered a free loaf (still paid for ribs $$). We will not be returning to Lonestar however as... More
