Visited with some work colleagues. Steaks were cooked well and very tender. Overall the meal was ok , service was ok, and ambience was ok - nothing startling but nothing to complain about as well.

Went to the Lone Star with friends. Usual high standard of food and great service. My wife and I have pork ribs, our favourite at any Lone Star. We both had 6 ribs which was more than enough for us. Glad they provided finger bowls we needed them. The sauce on the ribs was to die for. The side salad... More

It's been a while since I have been here and good to see if there have been any changes. Front of house welcome was very nice and also bar staff very nice. The place runs like clock work, Host takes you to the table hands over menus tells who your server is. All good we order no long wait food... More

I hankered for red meat and was. It disappointed. I ordered the Maverick which is pan fried and then oven baked. Served on potato and spinach. 10 out of 10. Absolutely brilliant.

We have always been a regular at Lone Star and look forward to eating there. Recently they have changed some of the menu and it's not for the better... Garlic loaf was the biggest change. Everyone I know looks forward to that big fresh baked loaf and the garlic butter to start the meal. Well this has now changed to... More

With the new menu we have put the Dixie with mash but this can be easily changed to buffalo potatoes or chips.The mash potato is made fresh daily from freshly cooked potatoes. We have changed the bread to a sour dough made locally and is proving very popular. This is available with both plain and garlic butter. All chicken is... More

Stopped in for dinner and was served by Christy! Very good service, prompt and quick with any orders, she always checked we were happy with the food and refilled our drinks perfectly on time. The gerhard burger was to die for and so was the honky tonk chicken. 110% recommend the cheesecake. Restaurant was clean and tidy, had easy off... More

The service was outstanding, We had a lovely young lady called Taylor as our waitress and she made sure that we were well looked after. She was very patient and helpful to find a solution for my youngest daughter who has very specific dietary requirements. I was very impressed with her service, she made dining out easy.

Really welcoming, very family friendly, great staff and rather big meals!! Had a family dinner out, the service was fantastic, not too little where you are sitting wondering where all the staff are and not too in your face either which was great! I had the cajun chicken, and it was nice but not as big as all the other... More

Another if those superb restaurants. This one is huge. Pretty friendly staff, great settings with interesting things on the walls. The meals were excellent, all of them. Accurate, delivered hot and tasted just great. Even down to the kids deserts. This Lone star keeping up the standards, probably second only to taupo. Great place to go.
