Arrived about 5 (they open at 4) and it wasn't busy. After being seated in center of large open area and my order was taken, the server spent a long time talking to a couple nearby who turned out to be her parents. I received no bread, no refills, and a not-hot meal. I'm guessing it was ready but she... More

The Lone Star in my town closed several years ago, leaving me a Lone Star void in my life. I was pleased to find one in Effingham.

Went in a large group. The food was just fine, but the room wasn't big enough to hold us all so we were all spread out. Made meeting and greeting a bit difficult. I'd go back as just a couple.

Had a short wait of about 10-15 minutes. Seated and server came over and brought water and asked if I would like a drink, nice friendly smile. When the drink was served asked if I was ready to order. I requsted the chopped sirloin as rare as possible. After the second bite it was clear that it was far from... More

We were seated and then waited quite a while just to get water and menus even though there were very few customers at this time. Comfortable booth, food and drinks were pretty good, but not great. Service turned around to be pretty good once we got our server's attention.

The good was great and decently priced. If you are ever passing thru make sure to stop and ask for amber. She's the best! Tell her Jared sent you! She made the visit even better.

This is a typical chain steakhouse. We live very close to this location and visit it often. However, both the service and the food are "hit and miss." Sometimes the service is good, often it is terrible. The food can widely vary. Too often, they don't cook the steaks properly and have to be sent back because they are overcooked.... More

Location is very accessible and close to the highway. Service was mediocre. Food was average. Rolls are delicous though.

Stopped by here on a recent business trip to town. It was a Tuesday late afternoon (about 5:30) and the place was really quiet. I sat at the bar and the food and service were great. I would definitely head back here again.
