Worst experience ever. Will not return. Front desk seemed incompetent about how to handle a party of 8. Put us on a wait when there were open tables. Wouldn't seat us at available table because of a reservation that wasn't due for over an hour.

The restaurant is understaffed. We waited an hour for the table and another hour at the table and still no food. A lot of people running around, but no service. Proenza have come in after us and they've eaten and left already. Brutal.

They have excellent steaks! Waitress was friendly and took great care of us. We had delicious fried mushrooms with Texas ranch upon request! Best meal in town!

Oh my -- we mistook this place for Longhorn and it is FAR from Longhorn. It is a bit deceptive since it has the same look and feel as a Longhorn but this is NOT Longhorn. Inexperienced waitstaff, marginal food and drinks. Just not a place I would recommend.

This Lone Star is in a good location, but the access is a little hidden on an access road and backs up to a shopping center. The restaurant decor, but did seem a little dark inside to me. Staff is fine, but I sensed a little bit of attitude when they severed me. Small stuff but noticeable. The food was... More

My wife and I stopped by at lunch today for the first time at this restaurant. While the other restaurant parking lots were full on this Labor Day weekend, I thought it a bit strange that more people weren't at this location. My curiosity was soon sated. We ordered and endured an incredibly long wait for a hamburger and a... More

We went on a Monday night after a day of hiking. We were the last customers to leave, but never felt rushed. Just the opposite, the server was a super nice lady and we were glad to have met her. Despite being just another location in a restaurant chain, the food was very good. My wife has shellfish allergy but... More

I like things plain and simple. Many times I'll go to a restaurant and explain that I want a plain burger with nothing on it. No cheese, nothing, not even on the side. Most places still provide the fixings on the side which I never use. This location provided my burger EXACTLY as requested. It was refreshing to see that... More

A really nice dinner after a 2-3 hour drive thru the Great Smokey Mountains. We asked if they could reduce the volume of the not so good music being played over the intercom or change the 'RAP' sounding music. They said they had no choice on the music content, as it is dictated by the corporation (?) ok! they at... More
