Very nice place. Large selection on the buffet. However the meat was overcooked that we got. They ask you how done you want it, so it should be right.

Do yourself a favor and eat somewhere else. Restaurant was dirty food was nasty at best and service was awful. If you ever wondered why so many Pomderosa have closed this place will remind you of why they closed.

I ate at the Ponderosa a lot years ago until they disappeared from my area in Michigan. So of course when I saw they had one in KY I just had to go. It was still just as good as I remembered it.

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.
