“not a bad deal for a senior”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

we went their and had the special for $5.99. It is a fairly good deal at that price, but at full price it has a bit to be desired. There was no fish selection and the veggies were a bit on the bland side. A few of the dessert selections that were posted could not be found and some selections seemed fairly beat up. Now the chicken, ribs, and meatloaf were quite tasty. The waitress was tops even though she seemed to have to juggle a million tasks. Our drinks never ran dry and she was always there to clear an empty plate. All in all it's not all that bad, just don't expect a top shelf or fancy meal. For a quick and filling meal at a cheap price it's really not bad.

“Good Place to eat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We go on Monday night's for the Senior Buffet for $5.99 I've lived here now for 3 years & since my 1st year here, the food has drastically improved at this location, the Fried Chicken is very good, excellent salad bar, I have yet to try a Steak here, as we also get the Buffet, but for the price for us as seniors, we can't be it, it's an excellent deal.
Just about everything on the Buffet is good, they don't always have Pork Chops, but when they do, it's also another excellent choice, the Ice Cream bar is also good. Service is very good here & it's a clean place, so I would definitely recommend the Mon & Wed night Buffets, for some reason, Mondays are always the best in my opinion.

“Okay Steaks and Limited Buffet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Their steaks are fine, typical of most restaurants that aren't steak houses. The food they have on their buffet (veggies, salads, pasta) is good, just limited.

“This is an excellent Ponderosa.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This is an excellent Ponderosa. We always order from the buffet, where there is a huge variety of meats, vegetables, salads, wonderful rolls and desserts. My favorite dessert is their bread pudding topped with vanilla ice cream. Maysville's Ponderosa has it's own special variety that you can't find in any others.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Ponderosa is a buffet-style restaurant. You can order food and add buffet or just get the buffet. We was here recently and the food was good, as usual. We always get just the buffet. It is priced reasonably for a buffet, it was almost $25 for 2 adults and one 4-year-old child. The salad is always fresh and they have a lot of options on the salad bar. The hot food is always hot and they keep it filled up so nothing runs low. The staff are pretty friendly as well. It is an average family restaurant. My only real complaint is that hardly any of the food is salted when cooked.
