Always a great meal and very decent size at Lone star. The service is also amazing. Great place to go if you have kids or just with a couple of friends.

Be prepared its a tad on the expenseive side. Mains are over $30 each. Entrée over $10 each. Having said that the servings are very large. The staff are friendly and helpful. The decor is all wood.

I really liked the atmosphere, reminiscent of many of the good steak houses I've visited in the Midwest and southern United States. Great music too! My ribeye steak started off tasting good.

My husband and I spent our anniversary here last night and the manager who was on shift and the waitress who served our table took very good care of us and had excellent service! The food was yummy but the great customer service is what made our night! :) Thank you for a great experience! We will see you again... More
