We decided to go for lunch right before heading back to Miami after spending the weekend at Universal. The guy that was at the register was very, very rude!!! I understand some kids have a hard time deciding what to eat or drink but this guy had no patience what so ever. He even sucked his teeth when my daughter... More

After popping in for lunch we were utterly dissatisfied and disappointed with what we found. Ponderosa is somewhat left behind with the competitive competition along I-drive now. It was very quiet, the buffet food wasn't hot at all and there's not much selection to choose from. On the plus side, our steaks were tasty. That's the only plus I can... More

You get what you pay for, the ponderosa is ok for breakfast but not great, the deep fried bacon was yummy but I wasn't much impressed with the quality of the rest of the food

Worst meal we've eaten in a long time. Virtually nothing tasted good and the prime rib special was nothing special. Even the deserts tasted bad and how can you mess up a dessert?

Years ago we used to have Ponderosa Buffet near us in New England and my husband loved them so when he saw this is expected how it used to be... It was just plain and old. We were one of three groups so that should have been our first indicator.

If you get tired of having same breakfast choice at your hotel in I Drive then try Ponderosa. There is so much choice from fresh fruit, continental meats, traditional British sausages, bacon etc. The omelettes are excellent. You pick the filling and it is cooked fresh in front of you. There is also large sweet selection. Very reasonable at $7.50... More
