Buffet very fresh vegetables for salad, interesting choice of foods for a steak house, on the buffet. Good selection of deserts. Staff found daughter some grated cheese for her spaghetti that wasn't on the buffet. Went out of their way.

Been using Ponderosa restaurants for many years on International Drive mainly for breakfast. Now appears that this is the only one left on the Drive. A shame really as they are good value. You need to be early though....after 9am and you can be in a queue and some of the items will have disappeared from the buffet never to... More

I ordered chicken for my main meal, which was cold, very rubbery and tasted very bland. My husband had a steak which he said was ok. My kids were not keen on their meals either. The salad buffet was good though. I wouldn't go back again though.

Thank Sarah K
