The food was horrible, it was cold and just nasty!!! The only thing my kids would eat were the mashed potatoes. The fruit was spoiled and some of the food looked like it was from the day before. They also kept running out of everything. Our waiter was the best dressed there and on his game. The other staff was poorly and slobbishly dressed and moping around like they were being forced to work. We will NEVER go there again!!

Very clean, amazing service, friendly efficient staff. Prices were pretty good too. Food itself was OK but feeding 2 small kids, a vegetarian and a man was quick and easy!

The restaurant itself was decent...Clean. Food isn't spectacular, but it's Ponderosa so we didn't expect that. The staff was pretty rude and foul mouthed and many of them seemed to be taking a perpetual break. The cashier didn't seem to know what she was doing, but she could have been new. We had 3 different servers, one of whom was very pleasant. The staff seemed to have a habit of yelling across the restaurant to each other about things that weren't related to their work.
I don't expect much at a Ponderosa, but I do expect people to be treated decently...

Liked the price...especially because the waterparks in the dells charge way too much. My husband and I both had steaks and they were actually really good
