“Our Evening Event”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

We had our after event prize giving and few drinks at Lone Star Taupo, the place is Excellent, Food was all 110%, with service, presentation and value .
We had pre booked the Upper seating area and even with Staff having to bring meals and drinks upstairs it was all carried out to a tee,and tables with 6 people seated at were all served at the same time, Very pleasing to all.
Our Group consisted of 44 people with families and small children and everyone as well catered for with Meals, drinks and Service.
Totally a profesionally run venue and a great flag ship to Lone Star in New Zealand.
Will return when ever in Taupo, 110% satisified.
Well done to all Staff with great guidance and support from management.

“family lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

It was my husbands birthday so as a family we went to lone star. We had a booking for 12 and on getting there, they had a table set up for us. Most of the people were eating in the bar area so the restaurant was very quiet. The place is very well set out and clean. The staff were very nice and friendly. We were told how long it would take for our meals to arrive so we just chatted over a drink while we waited and it didn't take too long. Everything was well presented and hot and enjoyable. I will definitely recommend this place to others and be happy to return myself

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We ended up at the Lonestar one early evening and were rather excited to see a rather north American menu. Unfortunately, I asked if the quesadillas had beans, was reassured they did not (can't tolerate them) and they arrive with beans. Our waitress said she had confirmed 'no beans', the manager said the 'mixture' was all the same and contained beans. Replaced with yet again another serving of calamari... greasy greasy, greasy. Service staff were good, however... very friendly.

“Good food, nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

Nice place to take the kids, good food. Diverse menu. Cool embellishments on the walls. The kids really liked the coloring book and activities. Nice portions for not so much money.
