Found myself hungry in Gisborne and went to good old reliable Lonestar. Had my favourite Redneck Ribs with Milky Bar Pud which was as good as ever. Setting was right beside the harbour which was very nice. Staff were very friendly in a genuine way

I have always loved lone star however this visit was disappointing. I had the special dessert and it was not nice. When I explained this to the staff they said "that is a shame" and walked away.

Wow, if you like pork this is the meal for you. On this occasion the pork was just right which made the meal most enjoyable. Lots of crackling.Add lashings of chunky chips and a heap of coleslaw and you are in business! very enjoyable!

Always great service . Sat by the windows looking out over the boats. Lovely spot. The meal was big and wholesome. Very tasty and well worth the price. The staff were friendly, chirpy and helpful. Definitely worth a visit.

We waited about 50 min to get our food. The food was nice when it came. At this kind of place I did not expect to have to wait this long. We brought our children and luckily they could draw, but they too got impatient.
