“Very average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

Visited with a group of 7 midweek. There was nothing fancy about our meals. The ribs were atrocious - definitely the worst we have had in Rotorua. Steaks were ordinary. Slow service, slow drink service, nice hot bread entree. Overpriced at that standard.

Looking forward to a nice portion of ribs as advertised. Worst ribs ever very tough not what they should be. Service was good but food let them down.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

The atmosphere was odd.
This had a western/sporty/moody feel.
Staff were pleasant and helpful, but seems dstracted.
We later heard cheering and sing of Happy Birthday coming from a private room.
The garlic bread was a whole loaf of bread - a bit much for two.
The drinks and menu is fairly varied.
Pricing is reasonable, but then we did get a $20 voucher from our accommodation - so ask before you go out.

“lone star fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

We had a great family meal at Lone Star, and the girls were treated very special with T-shirts (possibly because our oldest girl has Leukaemia), we felt very welcome, the food was great and plentiful, and we will definitely come again. Thanks heaps lovely ladies!!!
