“Ok, but expensive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

We stopped by here for dinner this evening. All 4 of us had steak; which 2 on the rib eye thought theirs were delicious, whereas the 2 on sirloins thought it was average. In fact one member of the family rated the Ruby Tuesday sirloin as taster from earlier in the week.

Service was good - quick, efficient and attentive to our needs. However the place lacked atmosphere. There were quite a few tables taken, back ground music playing but things were a little flat.

So although this has been our most expensive dinner whilst staying in branson it doesn't deserve our best meal vote. If you're a fan of this chain: I guess things were as expected. As first timers to this chain, not sure we'll be back.

If you found this helpful, please give me a vote. My kids don't believe people actually read the reviews and we get a real kick knowing you do.

“No wait to be seated on a Friday night is a plus.”

Service was very slow! Took over 20 minutes to get our Texas Rose. Bread was cold and steak was small. Really no positives.

“Satisfied Diners”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

The food was very good as usual!
We had seen the commercial for the 3 course meal.
When we sat down and looked at the menu there was nothing about the special.
When we asked the waiter about it, he told us it had been discontinued.
When we asked a manager about it, she was not aware of it.
We showed it to her on our phone.
She immediately honored it !
When the bill came it was not correct and the same manager corrected it immediately !
When I looked online at my credit card statement, I had not been billed correctly.
The next day I spoke with the GM, who was very helpful and assured me that if it was not corrected, he would do whatever to fix it.
I found out that the manager who had been so helpful when we were there, had only been working there a week.
Kudos to her for going the extra mile when she was so new and learning the ropes !
Sometimes you get lost in the shuffle with a corporate restaurant, Lone Star made us feel like we were dining at a Mom & Pop diner !
Not our first time to eat at this location, we will be back !

“Friendly service, quick stop for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

We went at noon and not in the evening, the service was friendly and fast. The meal was what we expected, since it is a chain, the restaurant was clean and well lit.

“Better than the other Lone Stars!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

We ate lunch. We had burgers and a coconut shrimp appetizer. All Was great. The service was great. It was slow and we were afraid to go in because it was lunch time and there were no cars in the parking lot. We were glad we did. The burgers were big enough to cut in half and take back to the motel for a snack/dinner.
