Being from Texas, we had to try this bar as soon as we saw the name. It was right next door to our hotel, so it was the perfect place for our group to meet. The staff was super friendly and bent over backwards to accommodate our group. The waitresses were super friendly and the Manager insured we had a good time, even when they got busy with their dinner rush.

Were there a few nights ago, nice atmosphere, western looks and good attention from waiters. Food is well served like almost all NZ, big plates, good portions. Tried the frozen margaritas, which were just fine, nachos and veggie burritos, good choice. I would recommend this place, besides is a couple of blocks away of all the fuzz.

The Wagyu burger was just a cheap mince burger, not Wagyu at all. Very disappointing for the price we paid. We can easily find $10 burgers that are much better than this one in Queenstown.

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review Bianca E, we value all and any feed back from our customers. We are sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the burger, it is a very new addition to our menu from the Lone Star franchise. We have many other much loved meals on our menu that keep our guests coming back again and again.
Please come and try one of our classic Lone Star dishes,

Visited Lonestar as we all wanted a hearty meaty meal. The staff were all very friendly &
pleasant, food wise the flavours were fine though the ribs were a tad underwhelming

The steak was cooked great, the chicken was really delicious & the seafood chowder was good too.

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review Baldwin C, we like to hear any feedback from our guests, and its good to hear that you had a pleasant time here. All our friendly staff love to get to know our guests and make sure they have the best night possible - its unfortunate if your experience of the ribs had a negative effect on your evening, they are usually raved about and keep guests coming back for more! We will look into why they might not have been up to our high standards on the night you dined. I'm are happy to hear you enjoyed the rest of your tasty dishes!
Come see us again for another night of fun,
The Lone Star Team

After a busy day of touring we wanted an informal dinner. Lone Star is across the street from our hotel, the Sofitel. We were seated right away. When we asked for a quiet corner the hostess suggested upstairs and it was lovely there - with a great view of the mountains. I enjoyed a cosmopolitan and then a glass of local Wither Hills chardonnay. I wasn't too hungry so ordered the Star Prawn appetizer and was able to substitute potatoes for the rice. It was more than enough and delicious! My husband ordered the John Deere and liked it but found it a bit too highly seasoned. Great causal atmosphere with good background music. Great waitress - thanks Laura. Would recommend. Understand they have other locations in New Zealand. Will look for this restaurant in Auckland.
