I've eaten here several times, and the food is always hot and delicious. The staff is attentive and the restaurant is clean. There is an occasional wait to seated, but it is usually very short.

This is the second one I've been to. Each one is a little different in their own ways. This one has more dishes that are spicy. Spicy shrimp and spicy fish spicy chicken. There dessert options are different as well. I expected more for what I paid for lunch.

Great food and service. We go a couple of times a month. I just wish they had more low sugar desserts for diabetics like a variety of fresh fruits.

Great server. The steak was actually full of flavor and was on our table in record time. Reason was, it was almost raw. Sent both back, second time a charm. Done perfectly with juices retained. Good job Ponderosa.

Unusual to see shrimp on a buffet. They had butterfly shrimp and spicy popcorn shrimp. Both were quite flavorful. Three soups and a decent salad selection. A separate hot bar with chicken, meatloaf and kielbasa. Mashed potatoes were instant; which was a disappointment. Overall, a good buffet that they kept fresh. Good flavor to everything. Several sweet choices; including cookies, brownies, pies, and cake. Ice cream was also available. Had a moist brownie and a dish of ice cream.

Ponderosa Steakhouse has been around for as long as I can remember. My gripe with this place is that their prices are pretty damn high when it comes to their buffet. I will say, however, that they have a wide variety of discounts to help alleviate the price. The buffet variety is pretty good, and the help there has never let me down. In fact, I'd say the service at this place may very well be the best in town due to some solid experiences with them in the past. Give this place a try if you're ever comin' through.

Great place to eat. Attentive server and the food on the buffet was fresh. The only downside was the depressing country music. A little more variety there would get them 5 stars from me.

I've only eaten the buffet. It would never be worth my while to try to eat an entre' and the buffet because there is always so many wonderful choices on the buffet itself. The banana pudding is as good as my mom used to make.

Stopped for lunch here today. Very clean and polite and pleasant staff. Waitress stayed on top of our table always removing dirty plates and keeping our glasses filled. Also the interior temperature was perfect! Sometimes restaurants are too cold, but here it was very pleasant. Food was fantastic also. Would definitely visit again.

Good place to eat. Good prices and good food. Nice clean atmosphere with friendly service. If your a trucker and want a good meal its a short walk across the parking lot from Chuckles. I will be stopping in every time I'm in the area staging out for a load or doing a 10 hour break.

We have always eaten at the Amish restaurant in Montgomery when we are up that way. We decided after our visit to the Ponderosa today that we prefer it over the Amish one. So we will definitely return. Thanks.
