“Breakfast Buffet - Good way to start the day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Great Value, Great Choice and Great Service.

I've used Ponderosa before on visits to the USA and cant fault the breakfast buffets,

There is so much choice and there was always plenty available even when it was busy. We ate here for breakfast 6 times during our 15 day stay and didn't have a poor experience. The staff were so attentive and friendly that they even gave us pointers on things to do away from the normal tourist track. By our last visit we felt as though we had known them all for ages.

Yes this is a buffett and its not first class dining but it offers exceptional vale with friendly service. Thanks to Wendy, Willie Ammie and all the staff.

“Slurp!!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

I love this place. some folk don't like buffet but i love them and it had everything I could want in fast food. the steak is yummy. Just go and help yourself to the buffet to add to your steak. don't eat for the sake of it. you will spoil the night. we saw so many people stuffing their faces and then feeling very ill. Take your time, enjoy and leave the very friendly staff a nice little tip. They work very hard for peanuts.

“Good for breakfast buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Have been resisting going back for a ponderosa breakfast after a poor experience a couple of years ago. However we have this one a try. Great variety. Clean. Great price. Definitely recommend.
