The food was cold and the place was dirty. We had a lazy server. I would not recommend anyone to eat here. My son and I had diarrhea after we left.

We haven't had ponderosa in years! It was fantastic and priced affordable. Meal was excellent and the buffet portion had a huge selection of hot and cold food. Buffet alone was a balanced meal

I'd never been to Ponderosa or Bonanza Steakhouse before this visit. I'd also never heard of a buffet where main entrees could be added on the side. I admit I rather like the idea. I didn't try an entree this time around, but the prices seemed very fair. I was impressed with the price of the basic buffet so I... More

I have been coming here for years and have enjoyed the buffet every time. This time close to Christmas it featured some smoked ham, turkey in gravy, broiled chicken, mashed potatoes and vegetables with both beef and chicken gravy. I always tried meatballs and chicken wings which I also like here. My girlfriend and I shared a sirloin tips order... More

I ordered the grilled shrimp and it was well cooked and delicious unlike the one in Wisconsin Dells that burnt them. Everything I tried was very good especially the banana bread. This is a good Ponderosa.

My family and I were on a short trip in the area and had dinner here. Appeared to be a little run down from the outside but was impressed by the inside. Interior of restaurant looked to have been updated/renovated and had a nice rustic look. Dining room was clean and cashier/servers were friendly. Salad bar had a great selection.... More

You chose you meal and pay before you sit down. Ask what offers they have first as that could have a bearing. The meals are fine although not fine dinning. The buffet is a mixture of salads, veg, potatoes, rice, pasta, pizza slices, wings. The meals are large enough so these just add to the food. Included in the buffet... More

Nice place. Went in to have a nice steak and baked patato. Lady ask if I wanted sour cream I said no thanks just some butter. Then asked would you like to add salad bar. Not knowing what was at salad bar we said yes. Well the salad bar is a meal itself with salad and meats and fries. Thank... More

We've been to other Ponderosa buffets before and they were pretty sorry. This one falls in line with the others. There was hardly anything to choose from on their buffet. It's way too overpriced for what they have (& that's with AARP discount). The only good thing at this restaurant was the server. Very attentive on keeping our table clean.
