Queenstown Restaurants, Cafes and Bars

Book - Lonestar Cafe & Bar

Since 1988 the concept has always been to provide a fun, friendly atmosphere combined with a menu designed to provide comfort food that is affordable. And they hit the nail on the head!

The original menu was a combination of comfort food, Kiwi classics and a few Lone Star originals. Some of those dishes are still being served today and are as popular as ever. Dishes like the Lassoo of Hog, Dixie Chicken, Johnny Cash Stash, Kiwi Joker, Kahlua and Moro Bar Cheesecake and of course, the world famous Redneck Ribs prove that food fads come and go but good food never goes out of fashion.

The sizes of the meals are etched into New Zealand folklore (although there are smaller options available), however it’s not only the size of the meals that are memorable- the service too, is legendary – as is the atmosphere and ambience.

Tremendous local support is a result of the high standards of customer service, atmosphere and quality. For sheer entertainment, marvel at our Tongan waiter, the Right Honourable and Most Venerable Basil Saula, who has been an integral part of our team since his arrival from Christchurch in 1993. His memory is exceptional and you won’t forget him either. “Pistol” Pete is another unforgettable attraction and has been looking after locals and tourists at Queenstown Lone Star since 2000. Take a pre or post dinner drink in our iconic café bar, an incomparable, irrepressible drinker’s haven where it’s impossible not to enjoy yourself.

The music is an eclectic blend of country, nostalgia, and funky retro with a deservedly generous helping of Kiwi hits thrown to revive heady memories of days and nights well spent. A newly renovated upstairs bar & café along with another separate function area provides unlimited choice for families or large groups.
