Not bad for a buffet

We couldn't decide on what we wanted to eat (as a family), so I suggested we just go to Ponderosa. Everyone could get what they want - more or less - and we could pig out a little. Even though we arrived a little later in the evening on a Friday, they still had plenty of the fish night items... read more

Our waitress was sweet but the food was average at best. We had salads, chicken, steak, a baked potato and a cookie dessert.

It's just so frustrating to take a Sunday drive to look at the fall colors and have a nice Steak Dinner, and have your whole day disrupted by bad food bad help and a Ribeye you couldn't cut with a chainsaw! This Steak was so tough Rocky couldn't beat it let alone eat it. I complained they brought out another... More

I would not recommend the steak. Very low quality cuts. The buffet however has lots of choices. home town type cooking with a large salad and desert section. nice change of pace.

When you are traveling with little ones this is a great place to stop. The salad bar is a little smaller than some I have seen but it had plenty of variety, meat, veggies, bread, and fruit. The service was super fast on a Saturday night, we did not have to wait upon entering the restaurant, our steaks (cooked medium)... More

If you don't want to have the buffett bar, they have steaks and other foods to enjoy. We would recommend this Ponderosa restaurant to others who are in... More

Compared to other buffets, including other Ponderosas, this restaurant is smaller and has less variety than others. That said, the food is very good and the service is great!
