Ponderosa staff treated our large group very well. Food was good. Could have offered more salad choices for lunch. Pricey for lunch.

Hey it's a Ponderosa Steakhouse so I think you know what to expect. But we've been there many times and it's a good value for the food you get. and it's quick. You can walk in and be eating dinner in 5 min.

We've dined at over 7 different Ponderosas still operating, both here in Wisconsin and other states.

There's several delicious salads, baked or fried chicken... More

The Hartford Ponderosa WAS the best Ponderosa we ever ate at. We have eaten at a few before we went to this one, and they were not good at all (Falls and Dells).

As the title states, this is the best Ponderosa I've ever eaten at. Their food is always fresh and tasty. I have never seen food run out. The staff is friendly and attentive. We go here often.

This place is the best kept secret, it's very clean and they are always putting out new food. The employee's are great. Always there to clear the plates from your table. It feels like a family atmosphere. It's also great for kids. There's a lot of choices for the whole family.
