“Pretty good”
Review of Ponderosa

The service here was good and the food was pretty decent. Everyone in our party agreed that the fried chicken at the buffet was crisp and juicy. My only suggestion would be to let people get their own drinks. Not that they weren't on top of serving drinks, it's just easier for people to get whatever and whenever they want it.

Okay, I've been to a lot of steak places. And I've had a lot of steaks. Thus far, this Ponderosa is the ONLY place I've been where the steak was PERFECT every time.

No, it wasn't one of these $50, two-inch-thick slabs of beef you see at other places. But it's a respectable cut of beef and perfectly cooked.

The buffet is kind of "take it or leave it". But the entrees are excellent. Service is a bit slow, but they're still training staff for the season right now. It's not horrendous and awful, just noticeable.

Thought this would be a crowd pleaser, for our multi age group, but it wasn't. No longer do you get to order your entree first then add on salad. You have to get the buffet then add on. Everything I tried was bland and lukewarm.
