Our first time in Mt. Vernon and this Lone Star. Food was outstanding as it is at other Lone Stars. The service was excellent. I really like their steaks, and my wife really likes their chicken tenders and salad. Baked sweet potatoes are always good, mashed potatoes excellent. Heck, we really liked this place. Right next to motel row on... More

This restaurant has really undergone a positive change in the last few years. Gone is the peanut shell covered floor and the (sometimes) loud music. From a very average or 'so-so' steak place it has evolved into a nice family restaurant with speedy and friendly servers. For our Valentine's Day celebration I selected the steak medallions with shrimp in a... More

Closest restaurant to my hotel, none of which had very good reviews. I chose wrong. This place will not be open a year from now. No ambiance, no employee enthusiasm, horrible parking situation at the end of a strip center and then the food quality. It didn't exist. Salad wedge was the best part of the meal. 4 wine choices...

Had dinner with some friends here and we were all disappointed. The food was terrible and pricey. Service was good, but definitely not worth the money. Everyone left hungry!

You show up more than once, someone will know your name and remember you. Great mellow bar atmosphere with super comfy bar stools (best seat in the house, or anywhere else in Mt Vernon) and fun, engaging bar staff. Food is great. On the rare occasions it isn't perfect, its always fixed, super quick, and delivered back by the manager... More

We've been to quite a few Lone Star restaurants in the past and found this one as pleasing as the others, both in service and quality of food. The wait staff was very busy but very attentive. Our food (both of us ordered steak) was good and prepared in a timely fashion.
