Hadn't eaten at a Ponderosa for years. Salad bar was fresh and varied. Had a steak that was cooked as ordered. Waiter ensured our glasses were full. Good meal for the price.

Came for the salad bar and forgot the salad! You don't even need to order a steak unless you are carb-free. Just get the buffet. I almost don't want to share this secret but if you are en route between New York and Ohio, driving through PA, and have your fat pants ready-please stop here. I am so full but... More

Traveling across the country, we spent the night in Dubois PA, stopping to eat at the Steakhouse. Never been to this chain befor, but we were very pleasantly surprised. Think of a higher quality Golgen Corral! We just ordered the buffet because it was entensive. Salads were fresh, chicken, both fried and baked was tasty. Meatloaf and tocos were also... More

We had 2 Ponderosa's here in Erie, Pa. which closed, so it was unexpected to find this on a recent day trip to Elk County, Pa. We were not let down whatsoever. It was great service and great food. My wife and I surely miss this restaurant.

We stopped in town for the night and chose this restaurant due to it's location to the hotel. The buffet was decent, pretty much average. I also had the clam chowder which was good. Service was quick.

With many Ponderosa steak buffets closing, I am glad to see this one is still here and thriving. The food was good; there were many items to choose from on the buffet. The service was good. The restaurant was mostly clean. Restrooms were not too bad. The price is a bit higher than I expected but within reason.

Remembering how much my family loved the Ponderosa in Camden County, NJ when I was young, I was happy to see the sign for the one in Dubois, PA on the way to visit my in-laws in Ohio. The salad bar and buffet was as good as I remember it. Service was great. Atmosphere was wonderful considering what it could... More

Buffet style restaurant with nice selection of dishes. Not a place to go every day but makes a great place for a change of pace. Food is hot, fresh and the dinning area is very clean. Staff is attentive and helpful.

A group made up of family and friends have been coming here after church for years. I am not sure what is the reason, but the quality of the food, has gone downhill to the point we go elsewhere now. The last few times we have been here, the buffet food has been cold, and the baked potatoes several of... More
