Had a wonderful meal and experience here again last night. I love the western atmosphere and music. The food is simply fantastic, this time we made it to dessert and that too blew me away. Would give the whole experience 11/10 if I could.

My little girl wanted to go there for her 8th birthday today. What fantastic customer service. Really good. You don't get service like that just anywhere. Terri, Wendy and Brayden looked after us very well, and they are very kid friendly. On top of that, the food was great.

I love steak, and nothing beats a good steak that's cooked to perfection, and Lonestar nail it every time!! One of my favourite places to eat in New Plymouth, staff are always friendly and happy and even when the place is busy the meals always come out in a decent time after ordering!

We arrived in New Plymouth late in the day and were wanting an easy option for dinner. It was much quieter than expected as it was close to Christmas - although being a Monday night may have had something to do with it. The staff were friendly & efficient. The kitchen was helpful in providing alternate options for a garlic... More

Very nice atmosphere. Great service. They ran out of lemon lime and bitters and the wine we were having and mixed up our meals with another table but made up for it with the great serice and delicious meals. I recommend the venison meal and chicken meals

I decided to take the kids out after I found out Loan Star had changed ownership. Glad I did. Service was very good. And meals took just under 30mins. Thank you for a filling night. I will start coming back again, especially for dessert and drinks with friends.

One of my favourite places to eat for dinner! Great atmosphere and wonderful service from a waitress called Sophia. She was very polite and looked after us perfectly. Five stars for her. Although the dinner is always amazing, this time the meat wasn't at its finest. A little disappointed with this.
