Visited for dinner.Wait staff said we could get table in 10mins despite being busy.Waited 10 and bought a drink then the same staff comes up and says that any order will take an hour and half to get cooked. Wasn't waiting for that long....So walked...out the premises.the staff should know there own wait times.More

Came to lone star Dunedin for my daughter's 7th birthday. The food and staff were just amazing. Requested they didn't make a big deal over her birthday as she is very shy and they managed to still make her feel so special without drawing any...attention. Well done guys!!! I am looking forward to becoming a regular here 10/10!!!More

4 adults really enjoyed their meals. 1 junior deputy loved hs Deputy Dog. Super easy online booking. Excellent service. The wait staff were wonderful. We were unable to use my bday voucher (due to the app not loading) the wait staff were so helpful with...trying to help load the App but it kept saying this is not available in this country. This was the only disappointing part of the night as this is one of the reasons we chose to dine at the lonestar. All round a pleasant meal.More

My husband and I enjoyed our mains, the chips tasted a bit oily, but the rest of the food was melt in your mouth devine.

9 of us for dinner and despite computerised ordering they forgot about two of us. The meals are not a patch on what they used to be and neither was the service. They appear to have compressed all dining into shorter hours and can’t cope...with the crowding. Give it a wide berthMore
