The service was good,,the place is starting to feel worn out ,,could use a facelift,,we ordered prime rib ,,it was very undercooked,,the server never asked us how we like it and i like my meat well done. I asked for some extra rice and was charged extra for it. I was not impressed.

Hi Pierre, Thank you for your feedback! We are in the planning process to have a major renovation. The manager would like to reach out to you to gather some more information from your visit, as we don't have prime rib on our menu.

Staying next door my wife, daughter and myself dropped by for our Saturday night dinner. Extremely busy but after half hour we got our table. Staff was pleasant and efficient. Piped music was loud and a large table beside us asked if it could be turned down. The staff quickly accommodated this request and was met with cheers. The food... More

As a long time Lone Star patron...this may be the last time i eat there. It has been a long slow decline over the last few years, and it has hit bottom. Although our server tried very hard, when the kitchen can't get food out in a reasonable time and actually serve a table of 6 at the same time...its... More

Hi Ray, Thank you for sending in your comments. Regarding the chips and salsa, we are donating the proceeds, after the cost is covered, from the $1 sale. We tried hard not to charge, but unfortunately all costs have risen especially over the last few years. The proceeds will go to the Ontario food bank to distribute in our communities.... More

A return visit for us reaffirmed the quality of this restaurant. Shooter served us and was both attentive and detailed. Our food order was delicious. The wing sauce is rich and filling, but the fries were absolutely fantastic. We sat at our table and talked for an extra hour and Shooter kept us happy by checking in on us occasionally.... More

I've been a fan of the Lone Star since the Baseline & Fisher original location! Prices have gone way up, food quality has not & the Lone Star atmosphere is lost!!! Sad!!!!! Not sure I will be back! No affordable lunch menu & now charging for chips & salsa ($1 ) which was always a staple at the Lone Star!... More

Hi Susan E, Thank you for reviewing Lone Star. We appreciate your feedback. Unfortunately, after 30 years of giving out chips and salsa for free, we have had to start to charge. Especially over the last few years, all costs (food, labour, rent, utilities) have gone up. But we wanted to keep the price reasonable at $1 per order. From... More

Went out with friends last night and had chicken quesadillas. Very disappointing, for $17.50, there was hardly any chicken, actually hardly anything in it and very bland; it was flat like a pancake, that tells you how much ingredients inside. I would never order this again, ever, what a rip off. I had quesadillas at Boston Pizza for less and... More

Knew it was going to be chain type food but they didn't even hit that level. Poor all around guys. Food was cold and tasteless. Nice waitress but obviously overworked.

Our famous fajitas are served up fresh - from the warm flour tortillas to the guacamole and the salsa. Wood fire grilled AAA steaks and smokehouse ribs are all prepared in the barbecue pit. Lone Star guarantees great food, warm southern hospitality, and a good time. We are Canada's only authentic Texas restaurant - the real deal...TEXAS to the BONE!
