Great choice for catching up with mates and family. Atmosphere is fun and enjoyable. Meal was awesome, staff were fun, and you just have to try the Mustang Sally!! Incredible. I definately recommend this restaurant/bar for a fun night out.

Lone star is a resturant we have visited all over NZ in our travels. Good reputation and solid meals for hungry folks. Timaru however let the brand down. We were seated near the front of the restuarant and as the sun went down we were blinded with blinds availabel only on the other side of the room for diners. Two meals were just OK, but the chicken caesar was a disaster - the slices of chicken had been clearly reheated and like rubber, egg completely solid and the rest of the scramble was not very fresh. The only bits that were edible in the end was the bacon and parmesan and about half the lettuce. Our waitress tried hard and was polite but clearly inexperienced and perhaps hadnt been shown some service basics.

A brand new lone star which has the wow factor. Service was great but then the meal....
I ordered the fillet steak with a recommended glass of syrah but the wine fell short of good. The steak was tough but more disappointing was the blandness of it all.
Sorry lone star but I left disappointed for the first time.
Season season season!

The food is okay but definitely doesn't justify the price tag of around $30 per main and $12-20 per entree. Service was good and the decor is nice but the music playing in the bar was too loud for us to carry on a conversation.
