Blech!

A truly awful buffet. Bad food served in an unappetizing manner. The steak I ordered was like horseflesh.

While the buffet lacked the variety that I usually expect at a buffet. The food was well stocked and tasted great. The entrees available were reasonably priced and for a small charge it includes the buffet. All in all this is a great restaurant for a filling family feast.

We had the chopped steak, baked potato and salad and it was all good. We love the Ponderosa and no longer have any in our area. Nobody makes the chopped steak the way they do. Service was very good, attentive server refilled our water as soon as it was empty.

always liked Ponderosa to eat. Not too many around anymore near my home town. Good variety of food. Went on day for senior discounts so prices were good.

Good place to eat. You may either order from the menu or have the buffet. If you're hungry, I suggest the buffet. You could tell that some of the food was from the can, but still good. The restaurant was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful.

We went to Ponderosa Steakhouse with 30 of our friends. I was pleasantly surprised to find a great variety & reasonable prices. I had the 8 oz sirloin and my husband had the grilled shrimp. We both had good portions with lots of flavor.

It's a Ponderosa! This place serves cheap steaks and has a cheap buffet. This would be a good place to take a family on hungry teenagers on a budget.

Just OK, food was average, had to guess what some of the food on the buffet was, nothing labeled. Service was good, but they only got our drinks and removed our empty plates.

The food was ok and the place was reasonably clean with a good selection on the buffet, but for whatever reason the meal wasn't anything to be excited about.
