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. The food was... More

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.

We went with our kids and my in laws tonight, a group of 7. We ordered starters and they came out promptly. However our mains took about 40 minutes to come out and when they did they arrived gradually over a period of 15 minutes! The food is good but that sort of uncoordinated delivery of meals is just not... More

Food consistently average - a good solid quick meal option ... or at least it should be! Unacceptable 20 min wait AFTER reminding staff for children's ice cream holding us all up (you try leaving without a child getting the expected treat!!). More staff would improve the overall experience

Good feed overall. Service was a bit slow once the drinks were ordered. Had my mother's birthday here which she was going to pay for however i ordered a surprise cake on the side (already paid for). Come time to paying up, they had charged my mother for the cake and it was on her bill. So much for a... More

The service was exceptional though the evening. She kept an eye on me and was more than happy to help. I had pork spare ribs and dessert. I was asked about my meal and experience by the staff. I replied "I have gone to heaven!" Awesome place to eat. Comfortable, great music, great service, awesomeness food, higher priced but how... More

Obviously a popular place with locals, ad quite understandable. Good service, family-friendly and the meals we had, there were 9 of us, all came out at the same time and were well presented and very nice.
