Was a little disappointed with parts of our adventure here. Firstly the seating, because we were a large group we were tucked away into a corner where it was difficult to access and meals had to be passed down. Also we found the music too loud and on asking if it could be turned down was told it had to... More

Lone star has our backs literally. If we can't find a place that will suit our family, Lomestar always comes through no matter the location. Napier Lonestar provides meal with a view which is always nice.

18 Months after our last encounter at Lone Star Napier decided it was time to try again. This time we arrived just after 5pm so place was empty, meaning it took awhile for staff to notice us standing at the counter. However as it was a Tuesday night and not busy the service was excellent, and meals upto the Lone... More

After living in Napier all our lives and never been to Lonestar here we decided to Gove it a go. Great service from all the staff including a trainee waitress. Meals to the highest standard and a great atmosphere. We've been to many lonestars across the north island and we'd rate this at the top along with Petone Lonestar if... More

My family and I recently visited Lone Star for an occasion. It was refreshing to be greeted and welcomed in such a friendly way. Our waiter looked after us well and was bang on with the recommendations. The steak I had was the best Ive had for a long time and the thought of it makes me want to return... More

This is pub grub gone wrong. Service awful. Food not very good. The beer's the only thing I would recommend.

Waited two hours for a meal! Not once were we ever told about a wait. Ordered one round of drinks when we ordered our meal. Drank that and never saw a waiter again until an hour and forty-five minutes later. We waved down another waiter and asked when were we receiving our meal. Our original waiter returned and as a...

Very disappointed with the service. Our drinks order was incorrect on the two occasions we ordered. Our 5 year old got his meal 40 minutes after ordering. Our plates weren't removed for 10-15 minutes after we finished, and we ended up leaving because they couldn't care less that my son had still not had his dessert. The manager was slightly... More
