“Never Go Back”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Had a bad experience with Lone Star so we stayed away for almost a year but then decided to give it another try. Bad service....bad food...but high price. Steaks were not cooked as we asked...we never did get the appetizer we ordered and when we finally got the steaks they were overdone then. We won't be back!

“Would certainly go back!!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

My husband & I went to Lone Star Saturday 09/22/12. We made a reservation for 6:00 p.m. & although they were packed, the gentleman we spoke w/about our reservation stayed in contact with us & made sure we were seated right away. I had mentioned to him that although I had spelt my last name to the person taking the reservation, she spelt it wrong. After we had been seated, he came & apologised & made sure we were being well taken care of.

Our waiter was fantastic. Our food was totally wonderful. It was well worth the money we spent & we would certainly return if we are in the are.

“Caught them on a bad night”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

Usually the Lone Star is outstanding, but we recently visited on a Monday night and were disappointed. We arrived around 6:00 and the place was packed! We were given a choice to seperate our group into two tables or wait 45 minutes. Since our young kids were with us we took the two table option. You know it's a bad sign when you hear servers apologizing to other customers as you sit down. (The group behind us was offered free drinks because they had been waiting almost an hour for their food) The waitress was awesome keeping our drinks filled but kept telling us they were very short-staffed in the kitchen & there were lots of big groups ahead of us. She said normally they are very slow on Mondays and didn't plan for this kind of crowd. Finally the food arrived for the kids and I. It was 15-20 minutes later when the food arrived for the rest of our group. Good thing we had 2 cars so I could get the kids out of there!! As always the food was great, hopefully we'll have a better experience next time.

“Tried it twice but won't go back”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

We always try someplace twice before crossing it off of our list. We went here once and didn't go back again for awhile. We tried it again after forgetting about why we didn't care for it. Well the prices are high and the food isn't that great. I would rather go to Texas Roadhouse.

“Great place for steak”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

Lone Star is a great place to go for a steak at a reasonable price. The service is quick, food is good. You can't go wrong going there.
