Food was fresh. Restaurant was clean and easy to locate. There was a good variety of food and desserts. Staff was friendly and kept drinks refilled as needed.

The restaurant is clean and our server was friendly and courteous. I ordered a 10 oz. sirloin that came with a baked potato and the buffet and also included a dessert. The buffet was small but adequate and the salad bar had quite a few offerings. I order my sirloin cooked medium and that is exactly how it was served.... More

I am not surprised that most Ponderosa restaurants are gone. My experience was old bad food served by people that didn't care. Had Ponderosa modeled their restaurants after the Arnold, MO location (franchise from what I am told) maybe all those shuttered locations wold still be open. The food and service is truly great at this location and it is... More

You won't go away hungry. Take as many trips to the food bar as you want. Great steaks. Great desserts. Great service. Senior lunch and dinner prices.

We couldn't decide on what we wanted to eat (as a family), so I suggested we just go to Ponderosa. Everyone could get what they want - more or less - and we could pig out a little. Even though we arrived a little later in the evening on a Friday, they still had plenty of the fish night items... More

Our waitress was sweet but the food was average at best. We had salads, chicken, steak, a baked potato and a cookie dessert.

It's just so frustrating to take a Sunday drive to look at the fall colors and have a nice Steak Dinner, and have your whole day disrupted by bad food bad help and a Ribeye you couldn't cut with a chainsaw! This Steak was so tough Rocky couldn't beat it let alone eat it. I complained they brought out another... More
