    Hopefully going on Friday night! the local online paper basically states what i have heard from a few friends who went. It is expected when a new place opens so i'll take my chances...

        Ambience is great, bright and airy, very comfortable chairs, and can hear yourselves talk. Looks like a great happy hour place with a large bar, several large tv's and drink specials. Service was very good. Now the food.....farily large portions on sandwiches and average price. Quality and taste and only fair. Seems like quality ingredients but too much going on. Sandwich bread was stale, pesto type oil served with dinner rolls is tasteless. Reuben was only fair. Creme bruhlee was fair. I would try again only because of atmosphere and service but don't have high hopes.

          Before Lone Star it was East WInds (Chinese restaurant) for many years. Man, that place brings back memories (I grew up in Berkeley Heights).
