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!

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!!

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!

Exceptional dining experience with excellent service. The Paris Texas rib eye steak was simply divine with the onion jam & herb butter. Redneck ribs were delicious and portion sizes for both meals were huge. Will definitely be going back very soon!

Amazing food and service, you cant go wrong dining here. It was my first time dining at Lonestar Manchester and I've already been back since, on both occasions the food was delicious and the staff helpful and welcoming. If you haven't been here before, definitely give it a go!

Decided to book a First Table for my birthday lunch. On a midday Friday we had the bar area all to ourselves. My original choice of main was a steak sandwich that had GFO next to it on the menu, but I was told that to make it gluten-free they removed the bread and added additional chips and salad. I felt that would be disappointing so I instead chose the Paris Texas. This was 300g of tender steak (cooked rare for me) covered in onion jam and drowning in a delicious herb butter surrounded by super fluffy buffalo wedges. I added a side of mushrooms, and my drink was a Bounty Hunter (a cocktail made with Malibu, Baileys, Creme de Cacao, and chocolate syrup). Our wonderful waitress Sam gave us excellent service and when she found out it was my birthday she put a candle on top of my pavlova dessert!

My friend had the Prawn Star, and we both came away very full and happy with our meals and the pleasant ambience. The First Table discount meant I was able to pick off the menu without price checking everything and that was a great treat for my birthday. So glad that Lone Star has come on board, and I'm planning to be back again soon with friends. Thanks!

I brought my best friend in with her sister and other best friend for her 21st birthday and was met with nothing but kindness and friendliness, the woman who served us (i didn't catch her name) was lovely and made us feel welcome and comfortable. We all got different food and enjoyed it very much, there was no issues at all and the food was great. Thanks for helping make my friends birthday special! I'll definitely be back :)

I've wanted to go to Lone Star in Manchester St for some time because of the great things I've heard about it, and finally made it yesterday. Loved the western country decor and music - reminded me of our time in Canada & the USA outside the hustle and bustle of city life. Waitress was real friendly and despite my healthy appetite we took home a doggy bag! Was unexpectedly treated with a free dessert because it was my birthday! Yummy! Thank you Lone Star.
