Can't beat the value. Not a good place if you're on a diet. The salad bar is very good with lots of variety. Volcano cake is great!
Probably the best that I've ever been to. Last time there no one came to ask what we wanted to drink. We asked one of the staff and the manager came over. We told her that there was no problem and that they probably didn't know that we were there. She apologized and got our drinks quick. We didn't mind... More
Ponderosa in Herkimer or New Hartford, N.y. is a great place to go with your family. The buffet is really good. The meals are very good. The staff at ponderosa will make it right with you if something is not right. You can join the ponderosa club and get great coupons to go eat there. I been going to ponderosa... More
I'm not sure the food is being kept at the proper temperature. The salad dressings were disgusting, the mashed potatoes were obviously fake and didn't include enough butter or salt to make them resemble real ones.

We visited this Ponderosa recently with our 3 children. It had been many years since I had dined at a buffet style steak house. The buffet offered an odd variety of less than appetizing food choices. The only items my children would eat were the dinner rolls and the soft serve ice cream. It is unfortunate that this restaurant cannot... More
Good food great price and good service. Their steaks, ribs seafood and buffet make this the place to visit. Their courteous staff makes you feel at home.
Ponderosa is one of those places that you would not bring someone to impress them. I got stuffed on the senior buffet for $4.99. A lot of the food is not something I would choose on a menu but since it is a cheap buffet, I just pig out on the things I like. The fried chicken, salads and deserts... More
I usually eat tere every couple of years when I'm in the area because some members of our party really like it. My wife and I really do not enjoy eating here. This visit all of the food was hot but not really veryu tasty and the waitress did not give very good service. Do yourself a favor and eat... More
