Food is delicious and the portions are huge, however we stopped going due to the service - the place is overbooked and last time the wait for a table was two hours. Can see below that there seems to be new management since, so may give it one more try.
Under new management this is a lovely family orientated restaurant that is very cozy and inviting. Enjoyed a company Xmas party at Lone Star and decided that it would be the venue for a birthday dinner. Definitely a great choice. Double lamb shanks are yumm...amongst many other dishes that I have tried. Portions are very generous and sometimes need to be shared. The midnight nachos are just fantastic. The Dixie Chicken, Honky Tonk Chicken & Running Bear Salmon are my favourites. Good food and great value for money with very friendly staff. Thanks Lone Star
This is definately what I would call a family orientated restaurant. It has a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The staff are welcoming and warm. You don't have to worry about getting down and dirty and really digging into your food with your hands and enjoying an absolutely fabulous meal.
The thing that really lets this place down is the service, last time I went we waited an hour and a half to be seated even though we had a booking. Not worth it, and to make things worse all they offered us was one complimentary desert for the wait. Bar was packed, environment was not good, too full. Food was great but the portions are massive! Not worth going due to the wait.
