Wow wow wow! Incredible food and service! Our waitress couldn’t do enough for us. She was friendly, approachable and a good laugh too! There was always someone on hand to ensure we had everything we needed. Service was fast and the portions were huge! It was absolutely delicious and I would highly recommend Lone star. I’ll definitely be back, especially since there was so much deliciousness on the menu to try out!

Having been to many Lone Stars around New Zealand, we always have enjoyed the Queenstown Lone Star, not just for the food, but Basil our very entertaining waiter. He has been a fixture at Lone Star Queenstown for many years and never fails to disappoint with his attentive service and witty comments.
I had the Classic Johnny Cash Stash which was hot, filling and perfect, while two others in our group had the Salmon which they raved about, and the other member having the Gerhard Burger which was so big they could barely finish it. We couldnt manage dessert as we were too full, but there were some great choices on offer.The Lone Star in Queenstown always delivers and was the perfect end to a day spent up the gondola and doing some serious lugeing. When you dine at the Lone Star ask for Basil, he'll get you sorted.

I and 2 friends had dinner on Tuesday, and it was my first time having dinner in Lone Star. The food was delicious with nice presentation.

There were 2 dishes that quite surprised me which were the Janes Chicken and the Pork ribs. You can taste the chicken and scallops and it's a really cool combination. The size of pork ribs were big and taste amazing, I'll say this is the best ribs I have had in Queenstown. Most of restaurants had pork ribs with BBQ sauce, and it is too strong and take out the flavor from the original flavor of ribs. Pork ribs will be highly recommended.

The waiter names Basil is a such enthusiast man, he introduced all the food to us and take time to chat with us, really friendly. I and my friends were had really good time.

Cheers!

We were really impressed with how they managed our food allergies. Lots of options!
The only disappointment was the plastic straw in our cocktails.
Would highly recommend!

The whole experience was fantastic- from the service to the meals. I had the salmon, and my husband had a gorgeous steak (the Paris Texas)- both were cooked and tasted 100% perfect. Well done team Lone Star!

We have been living in Queenstown for 15 years.
This restaurant was the first to eat out for me in Queenstown 15 years ago!
It was the second time to come there.
We all were very satisfied with the volume!
We ordered Egg Benedict, Prawn, Chicken, and Banophie Pie.
Everything was delicious, but the baby back ribs were great with lots of meat!

`Rockin Ribeye’ was the obvious choice for me having recently progressed from Keto Diet to Full Carnivore. Lone Star were happy to substitute eggs and mushrooms for the fries, onions and coleslaw that the 300g steak normally comes with and recommended Steinlager Pure as a great low carb beer to go with what turned out to be a fabulously tasty Valentine’s Day steak. Highly recommend, esp on First Table !!
