This ponderosa does a reasonable job of taking care of people. It is clean and neat though it certainly could use a bit of a refreshment relative to seating and tables. Generally a nice attitude and reasonable food. I would t certainly go back again.

We stopped for the buffet that Ponderosa offers. They had a great assortment of chicken and meats. The salad bar was not stocked with fresh vegetables and the salad dressings were not as good as we have had in other places. Desserts choices were nice. Clean and spacious restaurant.

I was in Chillicothe Ohio for business. I checked in at the hotel about a block from the Ponderosa Steakhouse, after driving from four states away. I was tired and hungry and just looking for a meal. I hadn't been to a Ponderosa in years since they all closed at home a long time ago and I was excited to... More

I've been to many buffet's and have tried this one 4-5 times. Each time I thought the food was subpar. The staff seemed nice enough and the place was clean, but the food isn't as good as Hometown Buffet or Golden Corral, in my opinion. I also thought the price was a little high, unless they have specials. I will... More

My husband and I live in Chillicothe, but drive to Circleville because of the quality of the food. Normally the salad bar is kept very clean, and stocked up. They take good care of the hot food on the bar as well. We both feel it is the best Ponderosa around our area.

This Ponderosa was filled with senior citizens and we soon discovered why! The cashier asked us if we wanted our steaks to go. I found that strange - until I saw the included buffet! There were at least 200 items on the buffet! This was far better than any Golden Corral. Nearly every senior had to-go boxes and was eating... More
