“There is better”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Just not a true steakhouse if you have ever been to one before, service not good, small portions for price, atmophere for a new resturant is lacking, and expensive for what you get. Wont be back there is better if you are going to pay this you should have great service and food should be better it was just average at best

“First visit to a Lone Star.”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

This was my first time at a Lone Star Steakhouse. We were here for lunch on a Monday and business was slow (only a few other tables with customers). The service was good and the server brought us refills without getting too empty. The food was good and cooked to order. I would definitely try it again for lunch some time.

“Good”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Haven't been to Lone Star in years. Food was good, buns though were not warm and did not seem very fresh. Our waitress was Excellent, we had 9 people 2 different tables and she took the time to split up our bills and didn't make a mistake. Wish I could remember her name to give her a Shout Out.

“Still a good place”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Years ago we lived in Rockford and this was our favorite steakhouse in the area. It's probably been 8-10 years since we last ate here. It was a pleasant surprise to find that it was still good. We were here on a Saturday evening before Mother's Day and it was busy. We didn't have reservations, but wait was only about 20 minutes. Each of us tried different entree's and all were prepared as ordered. Quality and taste were good and consistent. Dinner salads were a lot skimpier than we remember. The best part of the evening was the service. Our server was Julia if I remember correctly and she was fantastic. Great service, great personality, drinks,including water were always promptly refilled. Would go again, just to have her serve us if we could be sure she was there.
