It was a fun place to work, food was top priority side by side with guest service.
Assistant Manager / Service Manager (Former Employee) – Pottstown, PA – August 8, 2017
Food and service was intense and the training program was one of the best I have ever seen. The company was young and aggressive the upper management was always involved in providing information to help each manager grow in their job giving support.

Kitchen Manager (Former Employee) – Fredericksburg, VA – August 6, 2017
Day starts off by counting steak and checking shelf life. Then cutting fresh steaks for service for lunch and dinner. Making sure line check is being done and prep list for the cooks for lunch. Then the same thing for dinner after the lunch rush.
General Manager (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – July 26, 2017
The changes during my tenure demoralized the management staff due to programs that were not well thought out. Vice President did not listen to what was really happening with the affects of programs dictated to the operations. Some of the programs caused morale and loss of great staff members.
Hostess (Former Employee) – Middletown, OH – July 14, 2017
I learned so many new and valuable skills during my time at Lone Star. I was able to move up in my job position after one year of working. The workplace culture was very fast paced and busy. I loved being able to greet our guests everyday!
Hostess, Server, Dishwasher (Former Employee) – Colonial Heights, VA – July 5, 2017
I would love coming into work, all of us were like family. I learned a lot about family, working together as a team, learned different types of steaks. Our managers were like our older brothers, they were well informed of our menus and if we had questions they would not hesitate to answer them. The hardest part was leaving to go home after a days work. I love how we could joke, how we could dress up for holidays or special events. I honestly felt like we were a family there.
Server/Bartender (Former Employee) – Branson, MO – July 4, 2017
I was an opener and closer here as well. The management here was excellent and I had great coworkers. Branson is a very busy place so everyday was fast paced but I enjoyed the challenges and loved excelling. This the store I learned to be a server and how to excel in the service industry.
The job had it's challenges but was most enjoyable
"HEAD" BARTENDER/ WAITRESS/SHIFT LEADER (Former Employee) – Sioux Falls, SD – July 2, 2017
I don't think I ever had a typical day there. Every day was different. Things could change in a second, for example a cook not showing so I went from bartending to cook in an instant (because I had the skills to do all jobs in the store). Though I was responsible for half of the tables in the restaurant and all seats at the bar. I also had to fix all drinks for customers and for other employees customers. I also was responsible for taking to-go orders and getting them together. I also was responsible for keeping an eye on the front door. I learned a lot more patience. I learned that I made more as a bartender/waitress so I quit managing though I continued helping out doing management duties and stepping in where needed. I continued taking inventory for them till the day I left! The work place culture had room for improvements. The hardest part of this job, well, it had it's own little issues. Though nothing I couldn't handle. The most enjoyable part of the job were my clients! I built my own clientele, where customers came in and requested me!! Also, I had a family at my job with my co-workers!!!
We were rewarded for are achievements.
Sometimes things were so crazy you never got a breather!
Waiter & Bartender (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – June 30, 2017
My Co-Workers were amazing! The environment and the team leads and the management had no idea what they were doing. They would hire anyone off the street with no work experience and make them a manager over the employees there have been there for years. No wonder they all shut down!
Host and Busser (Former Employee) – Anderson, IN – June 24, 2017
This one of my first jobs ever when I was in high school. It gave me a sense of money management, time management, and interpersonal relationships. as well as day to day business operations. Management was really reasonable with scheduling around school events as well as family events.
It was a job... had the bad days, had the good days. Hosting and bussing were probably the easiest things to do.
