Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. We were advised not to order fries for my Coeliac daughter as staff couldn't guarantee cross contamination which was fine. She enjoyed her burger and lots of options available on menu. Will definitely be back.

Be aware. Previously rated 5 star but must have been a change in management and chefs as no don't have a clue. Specifically stated Master was coeliac and needed special meal. Then had to question the meal delivered twice before they admitted the chips were cooked in same fryer as gluten. Had been here many times before with great service and safe food, but won't be back again

We had a wonderful experience recently with Lonestar. We are new at this and discovering how to manage a young child with gluten issues. The staff were so helpful and warned of possible cross contamination with certain things on the menu. We had no issues afterwards.

This restaurant has a dedicated gluten free fryer, no gf buns for burgers but lettuce wrap offered. I am very symptomatic and had no reaction. I had a chicken burger with chips

Terrible. Wanted the gluten free fish and chips. We checked before that was all ok and without discussing before other meals were served we got plain fish with rice. A very sad 12 year old! And $33 !!!

Staff have no idea of coeliac, or any allergy menu. No dedicated fryer, so near impossible to order anything safe for Miss 8.

No separate fryer, so items listed (i.e fish and chips) as gf are contaminated.

Got the warmest welcome from Alistair who quickly became evident he understood about coeliac GF and although did the disclaimer that it isn’t a GF kitchen, but they can prepare the food to ensure as best possible no cross contamination. The food was average, but the service was so happy, warm and friendly and reassuring it was ok to be difficult wanting GF AND Keto. I didn’t get sick after so I would go back again.

Whilst we had clearly stated on our booking that we were dining with a coeliac, we had the allergies folder and clearly stated to each waitress that our daughter is coeliac; our order was taken and a new waitress came out from the kitchen who said that the fries weren't cooked in separate fryer "is that OK?". We said no, and that we had clearly stated our daughter was coeliac etc. She rushed off to see what she could eat without cross contamination. We panicked before another waitress apologised for the confusion, said she was coeliac and there was definitely a separate fryer. We breathed a sigh of relief and waited for our meals. They arrived and the waitress stated which meal was coeliac etc, did everything correctly. Yet halfway through meal, our daughters belly started hurting. By the time we got home she was in tears from being glutened. It may have just been an off night, but we will not be back.

I know that not all Lone Stars cater to coeliacs, but this one is particularly good. Before we began to order the server asked if there were any food allergies at our table. When I told her I was coeliac, she gave me an allergens folder that enumerated the gf options. She was very careful to note multiple times that the order was for a coeliac. I am confident that they understand.

We visited for dessert. To the server's credit, he knew that coeliac meant no cross contamination, but he explained that the gf desserts were prepared ahead of time and there was most likely cross contamination. I was able to have a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I imagine regular meals would be similar.

Very disappointing experience,: Don’t recommend LoneStar Napier. Ring to ask can they cater for coeliacs, get told yes, “come on down might be a few minutes wait”. Arrive to be told 20min wait. Finally seated and order and get told “oh, we can’t guarantee, there may be traces” 🤬 Order a kids GF burger and they FINALLY bring out a lettuce wrapped burger. Now for adults that’s cool, but for Miss 8 that’s the end of the world!! I ask what about the GF wrap, “that’s a chicken salad”. We have been to other Lonestars and they have always had GF buns. In their defence they provided some pan fried chicken and chips (which they didn’t charge for), but tbh nearly 2 hours later and I was over it!

Lots of GFO options available on the regular menu. Waiter was also coeliac herself, which helped, and left a note for kitchen staff. Deliocious stake and pavlova. Good place for a large crowd and for drinks.

A number of gluten free items on the menu. The waiter asked if I was coeliac (which I am) and then advised to switch the potato wedges to mashed potatoes. The potato wedges are cooked in the same fryer as items that are not gluten free.

Have been a few times and they have a few options and haven't been glutened. Have been told the fryer is not a dedicated fryer so can sub the chips for mashed potato or potato gratin. Makes me mad that they say the chips are gf when they are not

The staff were so knowledgeable. Initial waiter asked straight away if the gf meal was for a coeliac. They checked twice with the chef to make sure the meal was coeliac safe. There is not a designated fryer so fried food and nacho’s are out for a coeliac, my daughter especially who is very sensitive.

Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about coeliac disease. A number of gluten free items on the menu already, but they also had a comprehensive allergy menu showing what could be removed/modified to make other items gluten free (plus dairy, nut, and other common allergens). Were able to provide gluten free kids meals too for my daughter. They have a dedicated fryer for chips and were happy to run and check if their tomato sauce was gluten free when we asked. Meal was delivered by one of the chefs who confirmed coeliac precautions had been taken
