We have enjoyed the Bonanza Steakhouse buffet many times. It always the same.Good food, well prepared and plentiful. Low prices all you can eat goodness. Or you can order from their menu.

They offer a variety of steaks, ribs, chicken and seafood at reasonable prices. Order your meal and there's a salad bar/buffet waiting for you too. A decent salad bar with a good variety of vegetables that has hot food at one end. We were there on turkey day( hot food choices vary throughout the week) which included thick cut turkey... More

I'm kind of a food snob (actually, a snob all around, but I admit it), so the idea of visiting Bonanza already had me on guard. We had a gift card given to by a well-meaning relative, and went over on a Sunday evening to spend it. Bonanza is a chain...although most of the other Bonanzas have gone the way... More

While driving through Maine, I was shocked to find there actually was a Bonanza restaurant still in business. Without a doubt, I pulled over and had dinner here. The food really wasn't anything special and the all you can eat salad bar & dessert bar was good. The price for the meals were extremely inexpensive for steak and shrimp and... More

It was nothing really special, but the food was very good. I got the salad bar and there was a good selection.

Stopped by on a quiet Saturday and we left very satisfied. The steaks were good and the salad bar was fantastic. We couldn't stop snacking on the mini corn dogs. The salad bar was clean and well stocked. All staff members were pleasant and helpful.

Bonanza is one of my favorite places to go for good food and excellent value. No, it isn't a big fancy dining place, and it does need some updating on the interior, but the food makes up for it. The menu is basic American cuisine, steaks, burgers, chicken, and fish. A 12oz center cut sirloin steak dinner is $12.99 and... More
