Reviewed May 8, 2013

A truly unique restaurant in Bahrain. Amazing food, exquisite service and an intimate atmosphere that will make you feel like you never want to leave. What I love about the Ponderosa Steakhouse, is that you can enjoy a quite lunch by yourself or dinner with numerous friends and every time you would feel like you made the right choice to...

“cheese cake out of the freezer”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

I only tried the buffet, but it was nothing special, no taste at all. Service very slow and the decor old and a bit depressing, the cheese cake we were served was still frozen when we tried to eat it!!!

“Didn't know what to expect, well will not be going back”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

I have never experienced a Ponderosa in the states so I was curious to try this one. Okay maybe if you had children and are looking for a "Chuck e Cheese" experience then this is the place for you. The food was extremely bland, no seasoning or flavor. Ordered an entree which was very basic. The other customers I was with ordered chicken tenders and a hamburger, both of which were undercooked. The beef was still "moo-ing" on the plate. The buffet offered a few decent items, but nothing to write home about. The service was friendly and prompt. Unfortunately this establishment reminded me of a "run down" knock off versus of Golden Corral with the added bonus of a McDonalds play area. Sadly disappointed.
