“Honestly? Not That Impressed”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Stopped in for dinner 5/24/2013 while staying at nearby Fairfield Inn. We were greeted by a friendly hostess and shown to a table. After watching 4 servers chat nearby for about 5 minutes, one finally came over and handed us menus. After serving us drinks, we were given a reasonable amount of time to look it over. We found the menu options pretty narrow, although steak and beef dishes were obviously the main draw. No real attractive alternatives - chicken or seafood. A basic meat and potatoes place - which isn't bad. We ordered and waited - and waited - and waited. A good half hour before our food arrived. My steak was semi-cold and almost raw so I sent it back. The second time around did the job even though the meat was a bit tough. Overall, the food was kind of blah - and portions were marginal. Service might be better at other times - it was a slow night and the staff was definitely not too energized. In general, a disappointment considering other competitive chains in the area.

Our waitress was friendly and provided great service. Our appetizer and entrees were tasty, and were good values for the money.

“Lonestar is shining once again”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

The place is under new management and it really showed. When the food came out it looked so perfect it could have been a picture. It tasted really great we both had steak. It had that taste that is so wonderful it reminds you why you liked the place. The service was first rate. My family has been in the fine dining business for years so I know what good service is. Positive leadership will make this place much more pleasant.
