Never disappoints. The day we went they were very busy, however the employees were still very kind and attentive. The food is the same at every Ponderosa, and that is good, rather getting buffet or ordering a meal, it always comes out delicious.

this is one of the places we frequent, even though they are a chain they run this business like a hometown restaurant , they are friendly, efficient and the food is always cooked as ordered . They have a buffet also that is always well stocked, fresh and clean even when we stop in on a Tuesday afternoon !

We saw the Ponderosa nearby and had dinner. We ate there because of not wanting to wait for a menu-ordered meal. It was already around 8:00 pm. Older establishment that presented a good buffet. They do well with what they have to work with. Salad bar and fried chicken were very good!

Took a group of 12 to the Cincinnati area and stopped in here to eat. The items on the menu were reasonably priced, but most of us chose the buffet as there was a very large selection to choose from. We all were very impressed with the food, the service and the overall atmosphere.

There isn't many Ponderosa's left and when I find one I almost always have to go in. The buffet has improved here immensely and that is always good for me!

Food was very good, service good. There is a wheelchair ramp in the back, but then you must go to the front of the restaurant to pay. Otherwise a good experience. I would definitely eat there again. Close to the interstate.

typical for this level of restauraunt, steak was ok slightly overdone for the medium I ordered, salad bar kept well stocked, extras on food bar were just average no exeptional food but a decent meal for the price

Good variety in all food catagories. Food was very tasty. Everything was very clean. Prompt service. Food was plentiful & fresh. Greatly enjoyed it because we no longer have a Ponderosa in our area anymore.

Thank Deborah M
