Location closed last Fall for renovations and as of 3/30/14 still has not reopened. Doesn't appear anything has been done. Looks like location is closed for good.

We decided to stop here on our way home from St. Louis after my husband and the kids had gone to Six Flags. This is probably our third time eating here... it's nice if you have kids to have a little variety... First, let me say that this was the most disappointed I have ever been in this particular restaurant...... More

I used to work at Ponderosa (back in the late 70's). I can tell you that the food quality of the Ponderosa back then (very good) is completely different from the quality of food now (very poor). The service at the Ponderosa, Eureka, MO was very good. The cashier was cheerful and so were the servers. No problems there at... More

Six Flags season pass holders get a discount. For the price, its a fairly good place to eat especially if you have picky kids.

We were planning on trying a new local restaurant when some friends called and suggested we do dinner at Ponderosa. Growing up, Ponderosa was my father's favorite restaurant, so we went there at least annually for his birthday (thankfully he's developed finer taste in his later days). So, I wasn't opposed to going as I remembered the salad bar being... More

Any place may falter a day now and then, but this one's off days have really been few and far between. I was impressed with... More

The beef was tough, poorly cooked and most of the dishes on the food bar were there far too long. I used to like Ponderosa for their quality and price but this chain is so poorly managed now I feel they should just go away.

Wanted to avoid the hotel breakfast so we took the family here because they had a huge sign outside saying 5.99 breakfast. Kids were only 4 bucks. Nice buffet plus extras like chicken fried steak, bisquits that were soft and fluffy, fruit. Well worth the 6 bucks.
