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.

Lone star offers a Wonderful vibe & a warm & cozy fire. Service was awesome. Hubby had the full stack of ribs which was HUGE and I had the pork. Waiters were constantly offering new drinks & making sure we were ok. I would definitely go back!

On a cold rainy night we were greeted by a cheerful staff member who gave us our choice of tables near a beautiful open fire.

Our waitress, a charming Canadian woman, was friendly and attentive.

The food was fantastic. We had the fillet and the Johnny Cash chicken. Both dishes were cooked to perfection and served with generous delicious sides.

Hats off to the kitchen! We strongly recommend Lone Star for a cozy enjoyable evening out.

Really cool spot, mulled cider= yum! Even if you weren't eating would be a great place to go for a drink with your mates. I had the ribs, even the short stack are huge! Great service, the girls knew their stuff and were very friendly.

The food was so delicious we rolled our sleeves up and went for 3 courses! The Prawn Star entree was indeed a star. We shared the starter and were in raptures from the 1st bite. For mains we had chicken, pork and steak (there were 3 of us) and each mouthful was divine. My steak melted in my mouth and was cooked perfectly rare. 3 desserts then followed - banoffee pie, creme brulee and I had the Milky Bar Pud. I had a hard time sharing mine, it was simply too good. Highly recommend Lone Star. The service was fantastic - Pistol Pete lives up to his reputation as the best waiter in Queenstown. He is friendly, offers suggestions to make the food choices even better and even taught us a sleight of hand trick to do with our cutlery. Loads of fun! Go there, it's as entertaining as it is delicious!

Eyes bigger than our bellies!

The Lone Star menu tempts you at every entry, taste buds tingling. Entrees are ordered and devoured and then comes the biggest decision: whether to go for a medium or "classic" meal.
ALWAYS, ALWAYS go for the medium at Lone Star!
The Mr barely touched his potatoes and slaw after attempting to devour 12 ribs.

Amazing feed, cosy atmosphere and Basil, best waiter ever, make up for a fantastic experience at Lone Star. We'll be back (and only after a medium meal next time!)

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!
