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!

Wonderful waitress, very patient as my girlfriend could not quite understand the accent. Mind she can not understand us Kiwis either. Meals were huge and the ribs great flavour. Setting was warm and friendly. Could not ask for more. :)

`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 !!

Our family group very much enjoyed our meal at Lone Star Queenstown, and the fact that it is on First Table just makes it even better!

We sat outside at a lovely table of our choice, as it was a hot day, and enjoyed our Beef Burgers, Johnny Cash Chicken and kids chicken tender meals. Make sure that you leave room for one of their delicious desserts, but this may be a challenge as the main meals are huge!

The service was excellent. The young female staff member who looked after our table was outstanding - very attentive, friendly and professional, and is a real asset to this place. We did not have to wait too long for our meals or drinks, but did not feel as if we were being rushed through either.

We recommend this place to all for a great dining experience.

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.
