The original outpost of the legendary cafe-come-bar group, Lone Star Manchester Street specialises in mighty meat dishes, killer cocktails and good vibes.

When Steve Ward and Tim Whelan founded it in 1988 they were on a mission to make restaurants fun and boy did they deliver. Think a classic party soundtrack, quirky menus featuring the likes of Stand By Your Lamb (slow-roasted lamb shoulder) and a hip team.

Enjoy grass-fed sirloin with buffalo chips (gluten-free fries are available) or free-range chicken topped with sweet, tangy cranberry salsa. Vegetarian and seafood lovers are well looked after too with a mouth-watering selection of dishes.

When it comes to drinks, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Choose from the best New Zealand wines & amp; craft beers, and don’t miss the world famous frozen margaritas!

Left feeling full as always . There meats all so moist and flavoursome. My fave is the mushroom gravey. Daughter loves the Jack Daniels chocolate pudding.

A regular meal with colleagues went down well again. Lone Star has quality food, an excellent lineup of beers including Guinness, great service, and the music suits me. The restaurant was packed as we left which is an indication of the quality. There were similar work-based groups and also family groups showing the range of food choices must be there. Thanks to my mates who twisted my arm to have the dessert.

We had an incredible Mother's Day lunch at Lone Star, the food was perfection as always, and it was the first time I had taken my 15 month old there - we were seated in a quiet corner which was great for my son, he really enjoyed his meal and had a great time colouring in! We will definitely be back.

Very relaxing and the staff were friendly and knew what they were doing. Made it a fun nifht for both of us. Food is stunning, never had a bad meal there. Only one problem and that was deciding what to have, so many mouth watering choices.

It was a fantastic night, our first time using First Table and it was great. Food was amazing and even though the portions were huge we just had to squeeze in a delicious dessert each as well. We will definitely be dining at Lone Star again!

It's been along time since we dined at the Lonestar and the first time we've taken the kids. The service was friendly and faultless and the atmosphere laid back and relaxed. The kids meals seemed the standard fare but exceeded expectations, as the meats were quality and not processed.......great value too as the included drink and dessert. The Dixie Chicken is tender and quite frankly amazing.......the double portion will do you in, so if you want room for dessert- stick to the single! The hubby dined on the Maverick steak and said it was up there as one of the best! We didn't have room for dessert-....their portions are generous........and the first table realised this a family friendly affordable meal. Our waitress was lovely and our experience a highlight of our trip to Christchurch.......thanks team we'll be back!

First time at Lone Star for lunch and it was fantastic. Had enquired about opening hours earlier in the day and the lovely lady who greeted us remembered my name! The attentiveness of both staff serving that day was extraordinary. The service for both drinks and food was excellent! My partner commented that it was the best steak he's had in a very long time, and even though there was minimal items on the plate, there was enough of everything to eat altogether right til the end. My salmon was beautifully cooked and the little salad and dressing complimented the fish without overpowering. The end result, two very full people left the restaurant with a rave review as we were totally impressed with everything! Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning!!

When we arrived our first table booking had been missed but the waitress was quick to get us seated and settled.
I ordered the salmon and it was amazing! The sauce was delicious and I would've loved just a wee bit more to add with the mashed potatoes to really finish it off! Beautifully presented and I highly recommend

With birthday glee plentiful, I was joined by my daughter and a friend at The Lone Star Manchester St. My offspring & I ambitiously attempted to conquer the Redneck Ribs (Tower) and my friend (riding shotgun) the Lassoo of Hog. We yammed down those meaty morsels covered in delcious sauces, chunky chips and freshious salad, but both the Rib Tower & the 450gm roll of Loin Pork proved victorious. It would take a Bronc buster with a mighty appetite to whoof down the lot, but it was a hoot trying! If you like a hearty, finger-licking plate of meat, then these are your dishes. The fine ladies serving, paid every heed & we left full as bulls!

Two mates and I meet once or twice a year for a meal and a catch-up. This time we went to The Lone Star. Everything was great. We started with a nice beer (thanks for having Guinness) and some chips, moved to the eatery and were served a great meal. By the look of the plates we enjoyed what we had. By the time we left The Lone Star was filling up - always a good sign. Thanks.

Don't miss ordering the Johnny Cash chicken dish when you visit Lone Star, it's to die for. We couldn't stop eating, even when we really should have stopped.
