Price is low, salad bar area good. Buffet food hit or miss - Waitress was very friendly. My steak was acceptable , fried shrimp was not. Not the best, not the worst

Ponderosa Steakhouse is an excellent stop for both locals and travellers as it has a varied and moderately priced menu. The buffets are splendid with much to select from. The weekend Brunch Buffet is over the top.

It's great when you have a group of people. They just need to clean the restrooms a little more. But the food is great.

We ordered the seniors buffet with the steak for $2.00 more. The buffet was good but the steak was just like I remember from Ponderosa when they were still around in Wisconsin. It was tough and I left it . Stick to the buffet only.
