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.

We hadn't been to a Ponderosa Steakhouse in a few years so we were excited to sit down and enjoy their food. The first thing we noticed is that the buffet is no longer included with the steak entree prices, and so we just opted for the buffet. To add the buffet to any steak would add an approximate four...

I saw the manager being rude to a gentleman that wanted to sit down and discuss a problem about an employee. He refused to talk to the man and asked him to leave. We were so offended by the manager unprofessional actions that we left before our meal was even finished. We will not go back as long as that... More
