We are here tonight. The food was ok for the most part. The soups were real good. Salad bar was ok. Ordering was a little slow. Good came promptly it was hot. Had a lot of kids at tables around us. The waitress ignored us because she was waiting on the tables with kids. Dessert was disappointing. Not in a big hurry to get back.

We spend a week in the dells every July and visit here at least once at that time. As older adults the buffet is more than enough for us. The salad is always well taken care of and everything is fresh and has not been sitting around for a day. I like soup and they have 2 offers. Although we have never tried the desserts they too look good.

Great dining and options but at a lesser value than on the street. Overall, the Ponderosa is rare and few between and their steak and meat options are a great!

I love the all you can eat buffet, lots of choices. Full salad bar and dessert bar. Staff is nice and courteous. I go for the buffet not the steaks

We used to love Ponderosa. Now, not so much. We went for lunch and the buffet was VERY VERY limited. Half empty, actually. Mainly just a salad bar with some mashed potatoes and gravy and stuff to make your own tacos. The "soup" was badly done "French Onion." Basically bullion cubes, water and a cut-up onion. Can't get much cheaper than that. For an extra fee, we ordered the steak tips and baked potato. Overall, it cost us nearly $40 for two of us to have lunch and the meal was not good. Maybe dinner is better. But skip going here for lunch. Definitely not worth it, since the buffet is mostly empty.... not that they were OUT of food.... they never put much out in the first place. Again... it's really a small salad bar-- not the Ponderosa buffet we remember from years past.
