I should clarify - I hate chain restaurants like Lone Star. Given we were in town for a night and Missus has gluten and FODMAP intolerances, it was a welcome relief to be accommodate for by such friendly staff. Granted, the menu choice was limited, though it was the serving sizes and flavours that made the experience a positive one.... More

Mum and I arrived on a busy Saturday night to great service and delicious food. I had the Specials (Pork New Yorker and the Sticky Date pudding) which were stunningly yummy. Mum had the fish and Pavlova, and loved every bite! Generous portions. Will be going back very happily.

When you attempt to book a table at the Lone Star Rotorua you can't actually do that. They operate what us referred to as a preferential wait list. You go on a list that supposedly places you ahead of walk in guests. We gave that a go and were told on arrival that there would be a 30 minute wait.... More

Great food with good and friendly service. Staff gave us good recommendations for children's menu and adults' selection as well. Food was excellent and high quality. Great atmosphere with colouring sheets for the kids. We'll be back!

Seafood Chowder was amazing as well as the the Pork Belly. But the service was the highlight, thanks to our waitress Hanna for making the night great.

Friends from Auckland joined my wife and I for dinner. Orders were Dixie Chicken , Spare Ribs,Chicken Salad and lamb shank. Garlic bread for starters.Not a bad outing and all enjoyed the evening pity they don't have Monteith's beer. We booked but had to wait for a table pretty busy. Recommend for good meal and atmosphere.

Went to a 50th at Lonestar Rotorua and all in all they catered quite well for the large group of us. Being a Saturday night the restaurant was extremely busy and the staff were rushed off their feet but they did make the time to entertain our needs and make sure everything was alright. Food itself is just the same... More
