Not a big buffet fan. We were tired and hungry. Salad bar was very clean. Wing selection minimal. (Wed) more than enough to fill the hole. No complaints.

We came in on Friday Night for Seafood. What a nice selection on the Buffet. I had the Baked Fish, also Claims and Mussels also their Salad Bar had a nice variety with farm fresh Salads. It's worth the trip. Best Salad Bar around .

We visited the Ponderosa on Saturday Night. We all had the Steak and shrimp. I can't say enough on how good the steaks were. The buffet had a nice variety also. Very clean restaurant and very well managed. Will be back.

We went here with friends on a bike ride later in the evening. We both got the buffet and it tasted pretty good. The staff was very pleasant and the price was pretty cheap. This is not a high end restaurant by any means. It's...More
