What you'd expect from any Lone Star, tho' maybe the staff are a bit friendlier! Good food, reasonable prices, nice and quiet atmosphere.

Very nice restaurant. Service was good. Food was outstanding. Big servings.. I had the shrimp kabobs with mac and cheese (homemade) and my brother had the cheeseburger with fries. Both entrees where cooked perfect. Would recommend highly.

Our office had lunch here recently. We were only 5 people but our food took forever to be cooked. According to our server there was only one cook in the kitchen that day. Once brought to the table, the food was fine and the server was great, but we had to rush through our meal to get back to work.... More

We thought that we would be the rush for dinner, but that certainly backfired. We weren't the only couple there, but still no reason for what we experienced. When we received our food, they had it mixed up. When I say mixed up, I mean that they had the food on the plate incorrect....Then to top it off, the baked... More

Horrific experience!!!! We have eaten here before a little over a year ago and enjoyed it, not this time however. They changed their menu and really changed the quality of the food. I got the fish and chips and the fish was worse than the frozen fish you would take out of freezer and throw in the oven. Horrible taste,... More

Waitress do not have sections, they do the thing of next one through the door, gets that waitress. They end up with tables too spead througout the place. This severly affects service...doesn't make a lot of sense. Your service is going to suffer, and it does. You end up having to flag down a waitress that isn't yours for service.... More

My wife and I ate here this weekend. We both ordered steak dinners which were 23.99 a piece. The steaks came out a short time later. They were both very plain tasting without much flavor, not the best cuts of meat either. Expected a little more for the $$. Logans is a much better value for the money but if... More

This place is an embarrasment to the lone star name- it was dingy and old, waitress was very nice steak good, salad had watered down dressing - never eat here and we will never eat at any lone star after this!
