My partner and I enjoyed the Rib Tower for 2 (pork ribs, beef ribs, chips and a delicious coleslaw) and bottomless softdrinks (say whaaat?). We also couldn't go past trying the chicken wings, which were great. The staff could not be faulted for their service, despite teaching new staff members during our visit. It was a great place to eat and dine as a group, but don't leave before cracking open the shells of the complimentary and throwing them on the floor...you'll see!

Lonestar Rib House is everything you expect of a rib joint. Good food. Good beer. Good service. We started with the onion rings, calamari & wings. All were very tasty. My wife had the fish that was nice and my friends and I had the rib tower. There were plenty of meat on the ribs and plenty of ribs on the tower.
Also a bonus is the chips are sensational. Will definitely be back for more.

Best ribs I’ve ever had, super saucy and massive amounts of meat on the ribs. Loved throwing the peanuts on the ground in the restaurant, sorry about the mess we made hahahah. Will be back for sure.

The staff where very friendly and great service.The ribs tender, succulent and enjoyable.The rib eye steak was honestly the best steak I have ever eaten it was so tender and melted in your mouth.We would definitely recommend this restaurant to all and my fellow diners are coming back for that steak next time.

Excellent dinner night!

My partner and I both ordered a full rack of pork ribs, both really tender. Small hiccup in one arriving with the wrong side (coleslaw instead of house salad), quickly rectified with a salad being brought on a separate plate.

Polite, friendly staff.

We will definitely be returning!

My partner and I enjoyed our time at Lonestar and if I could say one thing it would be you had better be hungry, The service was friendly and the food was yummy with large portions. This is a family friendly restaurant with lots of choice on offer.

Texas ribs just like up in the US! Great dinner with friends at Lone Star Rib House Kawana last night. Debbie and her staff made us feel welcome and catered to our needs. Steaks and ribs were all great and we enjoyed the generous portions. Even without the 50% off food per the First Table offer it would have been good value for money. We’ll be back!

Steak was great, cooked as ordered. The schnitzels were yummy. The staff were very efficient and friendly. My only issue was that I was too full to try the dessert. Next time we may not have the garlic bread, as the desserts looked so good.

Another great meal from Lonestar. The staff are so friendly & helpful, the food is great also but staff can make or break a restaurant & Lonestar have chosen their staff well.

Was reluctant to go at first, have been to 2 on the Gold Coast and both were terrible! But the Kawana Lonestar was the best!! Great food and even better service food came quickly and the staff were attentive and friendly we would most definitely dine here again but unfortunately we are not locals.

First time using First Table. Easy, efficient, pleasant. Prime Rib was excellent, sides were also good but more than we could easily eat.
The half price meant our total costs were well down on what full priced meals would have been, do overall good value.

My steak was perfect and with their special fries and crumbed calamari toppers were both sensational.The wife and l shared parts of our meal and unfortunately my meal filled me up otherwise l would have ordered what she had, BBQ ribs. Guess l will leave it for next time as we will definitely go back.

It's just expensive tower $80

Upon arrival our table was reserved and the waiters/waitresses were attentive. Offering assistance wherever possible. All menu items including drinks were very reasonably priced and the house beer was tasty. Friendly service throughout the meal and efficient table clearing. The place looks amazing and cleanliness was well up there. Great meal and a lovely time was enjoyed.

Steak cooked perfectly, excellent service. We enjoyed our dinner out.

From the time I arrived @ The Lonestar the staff were so friendly & helpful all smiling & obviously enjoying their jobs. The food was great, I had the rump steak, 1 friend had the pork ribs & the other had the chilli rump salad & we all thought it was delicious. What I loved about the steak menu that you had a choice of potato (I chose the baked sweet potato) delicious. Such a lovely change from most other restaurants that just serve chips!!
I would highly recommend Lonestar & also the alcohol menu is very reasonable.
A lovely night thank you.

Food was yummy! We had the Missouri Magic chicken schnitzel, the Big Apple Mac & Cheese burger, the Hawaiian burger, & the Baby Back Pork Ribs (half serve). All serves were quite generous, and the service & atmosphere was pretty good. My husband would have liked a non-alcoholic beer, bu none on the menu, hint hint! Only negative thing was they didn't seem to have our booking on record when we arrived, & when we went to pay at the end the waitress thought we were arriving & tried to reseat us, then she wasn't sure how to give us the discount so took a few minutes to sort out, bot otherwise all good :)

First time using the first table booking and it was such a good idea, especially with a kid who generally eats early anyway. Food was pretty good, husband's steak cooked well, my ribs were not enjoyable but they were amazing at very quickly bringing out a different type of rib which was fantastic, can't fault the service to rectify. Free peanuts a great idea especially to keep the kids amused whilst waiting for dinner.

Greeted promptly when we arrived and we got to choose where we wanted to sit, we chose outdoors so we could people watch. Waiter was happy and helpful. We chose the special, steak and ribs combo, so glad we did, it was delicious, the meat was cooked to perfection.
Prices were reasonable and great offers on food and drink, would definitely recommend to others.

My family and I always enjoy dining at the Lonestar. The food is excellent, they are always quick and prompt with your meals and the best thing is the staff are always friendly and the bottomless soft drink is really bottomless. The staff are always filling it up. Fantastic quality for a good price

The ribs were tender and tasty and the service very friendly. You get good value for money with generous portions. We will be back!
