Great place to take kids. We arrived early (6pm). Fast service. Food was good and the Milky Bar dessert was enough to share between two.

The new waitress got a bit flustered as the place was incredibly busy, but a senior staff member immediately popped by to back her up. The free wifi worked well, and the food was excellent (like always) and turned up surprisingly quickly considering it was so busy. Definitely a cut above the other restaurants in the chain.

It was really busy the night we went and we were placed by the fire which was nice. My meal average I ate it but felt it was very expensive for what I got. My partner liked his meal unfortunately the waitress ordered the meal as is rather than how he asked for it to be served eg: no feta... More

Great service. It was packed out at the time but we only had to wait 5mins for a table and 25mins for our meals. We had a very good waitress who provided top notch service... from memory her name was Brooke. The food was perfectly cooked. Would def eat at Lone Star again.

The restaurant has a fantastic atmosphere with old photos, wood everywhere, and even a real fire. It looks and feels like something out of a Western film. The food was quality flopped around a little from fantastic to average. The staff were nice enough.

Probably should say we visited just after 8pm on a Tuesday evening. We asked for and were given a booth table. Our preference because they are private and quieter than a table in the middle of the room. Our drinks order was taken promptly. Had to ask for water twice. We ordered our meals after perusing the menu and not... More
