Been a long time since I've been in a Ponderosa. Forget the steak plates, the buffet is the value. Especially if you like to eat until you POP! Pretty good vegetables, though.

The food is decent, but the service and the dessert bar need a little work.

We had a great time eating at Ponderosa. The staff were very nice and helpful. I think I ate to much. Oh well it will be worth it again!

My shimp were ok, but the buffet was not fresh and it was not worth the money. Wait staff not very attentive either, seemed to be an unhappy atmosphere the day I was there.

I wasn't disappointed, Ponderosa just isn't what it was years ago. Enough said.
