I have to say that I had one of the best experiences at a restaurant. I have to give the staff a lot of credit. With all the changes they were having to deal with do to covid-19 I it did not stop them from giving excellent service. I noticed that a lot of the staff were showing random acts of kindness. Not to just my family and myself, but to other customers as well. This was an awesome thing to see. I also need to mention that the food was excellent as well. Thank you ponderosa staff for going above and beyond my expectations.

Vincennes Ponderosa is the bomb!! Loved the meatloaf! Staff is on the ball!! Service terrific! Desserts to die for!
22:29 26 Mar 20
03/26/2020 - Had the take out meal this afternoon. Fried chicken, hash brown casserole, cauliflower with cheese. Roll and sweet tea. Good sized portions . Very good. And reasonable in price.
18:02 05 Mar 20
There is something for everyone. The dessert buffet is so wonderful. This is where Mom always wants to go on when we are in Vincennes.

Great place to eat on a Friday night. Super clean and friendly service. Friday night fish is delicious.
03:27 07 Feb 20
OMG! Best buffet I've been too! All the food was amazing! Dessert selection could use some growth...but no complaints!Just passing thru!
23:12 10 Jan 20
Always love eating here. The food is normally fantastic! Service is great! Prices are very reasonable & senior get a discount. I highly recommend Ponderosa Steakhouse.
00:14 19 Dec 19
My family and I love the buffet. There is so much of a variety to please everyone. Always hot good ol home cooked comfort foods.
19:30 05 Dec 19
Great buffet. Food was hot and delicious, servers were nice and attentive. Ours gave me the largest to go cup of unsweetened iced tea I've ever seen. Would definitely stop again and recommend it.
20:27 24 Nov 19
Clean and food was very good. Like a warm hug. Service was pleasant. Would go back
13:45 12 Nov 19
Very nice workers. Food fresh and hot even at end of shift. I wish there was still one in Cincinnati
17:02 10 Nov 19
I love this place! They don't have it where I live but I come here every chance I get. Amazing steak, amazing food, amazing staff, and a friendly environment. I recommend you come here.Best buffet I've ever been to, hands down.
01:50 05 Nov 19
The fried chicken was awesome also the baked potato casserole was great but wasn't on the bar enough or couldn't keep up with the amount of people in the restaurant . But it was great and definitely a place to go back to.
18:17 25 Oct 19
Excellent food nice and hot the waitress was very prompt and keeping our table nice and clean. It was just a wonderful experience and hope to go back again.
00:42 18 Oct 19
Pulled pork and catfish were very good. All you can eat with salad and dessert bar 2 adults with drinks $33.00. Place was pretty clean and bathrooms were clean.
18:25 21 Sep 19
My son loves this place. The staff is always friendly and the food is good!
05:00 26 Aug 19
Very good deserts! Clean atmosphere. Plesant staff.
11:10 29 Jul 19
This is a very good Ponderosa . Very clean and the workers, staff, all helpful. Nice smiles, good food, large buffet or order from menu. I finished with soft serve ice cream with bits and sprinkles!
18:34 21 Jul 19
Waitress was very attentive. Food was great very clean place
22:59 05 Jul 19
It's a steak place with a huge buffet. Do yourself a favor, pass on the steak and hit up the fried chicken on the buffet, trust me! You can get a good steak anywhere, but this fried chicken is one in a million!!!
21:02 04 Jul 19
They always have the best food and cost is on track with similar places.
21:33 25 Jun 19
Surprised to see one of these. It been years. Food was great and fresh. Staff was super friendly and helpful.
14:29 27 May 19
Always a great place to eat when in Vincennes, however when I got up the next morning to fry my half left over baked potato with my breakfast it wasn't with my leftover bag. I understand the need for wait staff to bag and even staple the bag shut because there are those that would take from the buffet, but what a bummer not to have what I'd paid for.
20:08 07 Apr 19
Service was slow and food wasn't cooked right when we visited recently. However the manager/owners were there and they gave us our food for free and a gift card for $60 so can't complain. When we used the gift card on our next visit the food was great and so was the food!
16:05 04 Mar 19
The food, and service is great! The restaurant was very clean, and cozy. I love the wide variety on the buffet.
15:38 04 Mar 19
We ( 23) had a birthday party to celebrate my Dad's 88th birthday there in the dining room area. The server & service was excellent!
19:36 13 Feb 19
When at lunchtime. Fried chicken was hot, instant mashed potatoes were runny, rolls looked burnt. Desserts were good. Fried chicken livers were few and well done to a crispy texture.
21:46 26 Dec 18
Pleasantly surprised after boycotting for years. Food quality on buffet excellent. The steak quality hasn't changed through the years. Still a $2 value add on.
15:53 15 Dec 18
Cashier/greeter was very nice and friendly. Our server was as well, kept table cleared of dirty dishes, and checked on us often. Buffett was clean, quiet a selection, something 4 everyone. Would highly recommend
09:31 30 Nov 18
Waitress was extremely polite and helpful food was excellent and the choices were almost too numerous to say. I will suggest this place to anyone. Price was reasonable considering all the food that a person could eat.
23:21 03 Nov 18
I just loved their smoked wings, I couldn't get enough. I was not a fan of staff just standing at the door as if they had nothing better to do, we felt uncomfortable as if we were watched during our meal, very unsettling feeling when you are eating, so we had to move seating. Food is delicious, staff is friendly, just wish it wasn't so uncomfortable with them standing there. Definitely will be returning for The wings!!!
02:19 20 Oct 18
Very nice. The buffet is always fresh and full. Staff is there whenever needed.
13:32 10 Oct 18
Great place to eat. Buffet was good and so was my steak. And it's not to expensive either. I wish I could eat here more often but I dont live in same town, I wish they would not have closed all of the Ponderosas around my town.
21:06 01 Oct 18
First time at Ponderosa. I was sceptical about coming here for 3 years. Always heard both good and bad things about this place. But I have to say, its pretty good! More meat options would be great but overall, really good tasting food. I'd definitely choose this place over Golden Corral anyday
02:49 24 Sep 18
Everything was fresh and there was a good variety of main dishes and desserts. Our server was very nice, kept the table clear and drinks full.
05:22 19 Sep 18
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.
11:22 01 Sep 18
Always excellent! Everything is always fresh, hot, delicious! Huge variety on the huge buffet tables. Nice desserts and ice cream to choose from. Servers are always nice. Atmosphere is comfortable and restaurant is always clean. Great place, great value
18:46 13 Aug 18
I ate from the buffet bar and everything I had was fresh. Decent selection of food available. Salad bar and dessert bar had a variety of offerings. Wait staff was attentive.
17:40 04 Aug 18
I love their buffet. It has anything and everything. Always. Hot. People are very friendly.my husband loves their chicken wings
12:14 17 Jul 18
Ponderosa is Absolutely the Best Place to Eat! I wish we had one in our town! We use to when I was younger...It was even better than I remember. Super Clean! Food was Hot! Lots of Good Choices!
22:28 13 Jul 18
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.
12:49 06 Jul 18
Love the food, tasty and fresh. Clean dining area and friendly service.
23:34 01 Jun 18
The food is soooo gooood! I hadn't had such good food in a long time! It's a nice, homey atmosphere, and the workers were kind. Would definitely go again if I lived closer!
00:05 31 Mar 18
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.
02:57 21 Mar 18
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.
23:47 03 Mar 18
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.
18:40 03 Mar 18
The food was very good and the facility was clean. Always stop there on way to Louisville. Waitresses are great!
19:45 22 Feb 18
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.
16:27 18 Feb 18
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.
02:43 31 Jan 18
Really good steak. Not the best cut in the world, but the taste was great. The buffet was full and clean. Nice job
01:54 16 Jan 18
Good atmosphere, good food, great service! We had a group of 20 and the drink service was phenomenal and the buffet never ran out of food.
17:33 07 Jan 18
I used to work at Ponderosa good people and good food I miss all my Ponderosa friend
23:22 12 Dec 17
Really good food, decent steaks, and the smoked meat is very good, friendly staff, nice atmosphere, plenty of seating, and caters, the wing and fried cabbage are amazing
23:33 06 Dec 17
The food and the service was excellent and we talked with Brian the manager very nice man real good experience
23:10 24 Nov 17
Good food. Nice Waiters. Clean. Good for large crowds.
04:16 14 Nov 17
They have a variety of salad fixings, hot food, and desserts.If you don't like buffet, they also have steaks, baked potatoes, and shrimp along with the buffet and salad and soup bar and dessert bars.
00:31 22 Oct 17
I like it here cause I can have variety it could be better but its pretty good
16:52 09 Oct 17
Food on the buffet was very fresh and the steak and baked potato was delicious. Restaurant was very clean and our waitress was very nice.

Even though it is a buffet style restaurant you can order other items. The waitress were very attentive and constantly ensuring you had what you wanted.
09:41 09 May 17
Great buffet .and great place to go.a little expensive but good food
17:19 14 Apr 17
We live in Terre Haute, Indiana and had to drive here to Vincennes to come eat..we used to have 2 Ponderosa restaurants in Terre Haute, but they closed them down a few yrs ago and we miss the food..
06:07 28 Jan 17
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.

16:01 14 Dec 16
Very nice salad buffet always full and good buffet food choice and always hot. Great service. All food is attended to on buffets very well and steaks are good also
00:40 23 Feb 20
The waitresses have always been polite to us every time. The food has mosly always been good. It has its up and we been there when the food wasn't always as good. But to go back because we always feel welcome and it always professional.
18:48 10 Feb 20
The time with family was Awesome, the food was good. Only complaint was the first server was not friendly and kind of hateful.
13:39 19 Jan 20
Food is great and staff is friendly. Great place for family gatherings. A little bit on the expensive side.

02:37 02 Sep 19
The Steaks were made to order. However no Chicken wings and not enough Shrimp. The Rolls were not hot. Our Server did a excellent job! She kept our drinks filled. She kept a eye in our table. The Store Manager came around and checked on everything. The sweet potatoe fries were crunchy on the outside but mushy on the inside. The waffle fries were great! We visit this place at least 6 to 8 times a year as couples.
23:05 10 Aug 19
I love this buffet more than any other. The choices you have are always good and they change them so Everytime I visit , it's not the same old thing they had the time before . It's so good.
20:49 25 Jul 19
Went to Ponderosa Steakhouse in Washington IN Sunday and everything was absolutely delicious! So good in fact that we came back today for my Birthday lunch! Not only is the food superb but the staff were all so nice and attentive! I'm talking everyone we came in contact with cashier , waitresses and those stocking the buffet. It is well worth the 11/2 hrs drive to get there!Thank you all so much for a wonderful dinner!You deserve more than a 5 stars rating!
16:22 02 Jul 19
Very crazy finding one one these after 30 years. We used to have these up in Canada in the 1970's and was surprised to stumble upon this one today.It was a blast from the past and glad I was able to stop here for lunch as it was right next to a truckstop .
21:10 24 Jun 19
Had steak and lunch buffet. Overcooked my steak the first time. However they were eager to fix their mistake and brought it out cooked properly on the second try. The staff was friendly and efficient. A good overall experience.
17:15 24 Jun 19
I hadn't been there in a few years. It was ok. I just remembered it being better. Rolls were delicious as always!
11:36 11 Jun 19
Great food. Love Ponderosa. Just wish they had more locations.
21:15 15 May 19
We have on several occasions used Ponderosa to cater meals for our business. They, by far, are the best caters around!!! They are always on time, the quality of their meals are absolutely delicious, affordable, and they always make sure to add a little extra to ensure we have more than enough to feed everyone!! We can not thank Team Ponderosa for their outstanding friendliness and service!! Let them cater your next function. You will be very happy with their dedication and the pride they take in delivering you an outstanding meal!!!
11:28 13 Apr 19
Great buffet and you can get steaks any day of the week or weekend and you still get buffet with. Not to bad on price. We love it!!
10:41 02 Apr 19
I have a large family so it's nice not to have to cook sometimes. Coming here is know we get good quality fresh food. It's always hot and we'll rotated.
02:10 14 Mar 19
Come here every couple months just to switch it up. Restaurant is nice and spacious. Never too crowded which is nice. Food usually good.
22:15 11 Mar 19
Excellent choice of foods and salads. Buffett is really.nice when I'm hungry as a beast and when I'm not the steaks are second to none.
06:18 01 Feb 19
This is a nice place, I found it to be very clean, food was fresh and very good, staff was great.
07:01 17 Jan 19
This place impressed me so much, I'd go back tomorrow if I lived closer. I've never been a big fan of ponderosa, but this one..... It was clean, well stocked, our waitress went above and beyond to make sure all 40 of the people on our group had drink refills. It was my grandfather in laws birthday, and I think he thoroughly enjoyed it, I know I did.
06:04 10 Jan 19
Hostess and Servers were Super Pleasant and the buffet was clean, hot, fresh and REALLY Tasty!!
22:40 08 Dec 18
Nice place to eat. Clean and plenty of space. The food was actually pretty good. I would recommend and I would eat there again.

20:36 21 Oct 18
Food was good. Service was very good
00:23 08 Aug 18
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.

My favorite Ponderosa Steakhouse in Indiana, because of it's very clean, open atmosphere...in comparison to others. I personally like the Salmon best.
13:45 29 Jun 18
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.
01:15 29 Jun 18
Great choices on the buffet and salad bar!! Got there towards end of the night, not much for pies left. Otherwise, great place!
14:39 13 Jun 18
Great food at a very reasonable price, always clean and the server's our always super nice. ( Love that senior discount) !
23:05 10 Jun 18
Restaurant was nice and clean service was quick and friendly food is nice and hot today. Just an overall family atmosphere I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good family cooked meal.
21:45 04 Jun 18
Great friendly service. Only issue was they had ribs on the buffet and the server was only able to give us one napkin per customer per the management.
21:13 01 Jun 18
Don't see to many of them anymore. Was a great buffet. And the steak was amazing.
13:13 11 May 18
It is clean and the food was fine. No difference between this ponderosa and any other.
22:53 10 May 18
Yummy food and drink service was great.

00:32 28 Jan 18
Food is good it's hard for them to keep things stocked
06:45 14 Jan 18
This is by far one of the better ponderosa's I've ate at! Always fresh food that's full. Staff is all nice also. And they have good prices with a special that's good everytime we go!
03:24 13 Jan 18
Good food but not much to choose from if you don't eat pork or shellfish.
12:44 12 Dec 17
Awesome place to stop for dinner while traveling with little kids.
05:56 04 Dec 17
The steaks are passable but the real hook with this place is the buffet alot of options there you definitely don't leave hungry
22:05 25 Nov 17
Love Love this place! I'm from MT. VERNON INDIANA so wish we had a Ponderosa Steakhouse closer to home. This place is always clean, nice workers and great atmosphere.
01:24 21 Nov 17
I love your food and the service is so great and sweet
13:37 07 Nov 17
They service is great and the buffet has decent food with several choices. The restaurant is clean and comfortable.
22:22 17 Oct 17
Pretty good food and usually good service. One of the better places in Washington.
20:35 12 Oct 17
Excellent food and service...Well worth the money....
22:20 17 Sep 17
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.
12:57 31 Aug 17
The only reason I did not give you guys a five in some of the veggies on the bar looked overcooked and old! But everything else was great
19:17 09 Aug 17
Great place to eat .nice atmosphere and friendly people I would recommend this place to anyone..
03:07 07 Aug 17
Food options are large, salad bar is amazing. Very quiet and comfortable and location is right off of I-50 and easy to access!
07:50 11 Jul 17
Good place to eat lot of selection eating for a diabetic
20:41 09 Jul 17
We come here every Sunday, had one bad experience with a rotten baked potatoe but they made good on it, took care of it nicely and the manager was great. This will not keep us from coming back, the food is good and steaks are yummy.
13:37 27 Jun 17
It is best to go early in the mealtime. Good variety and choices on the buffet. Nice banquet room for large groups. Food is respectable for a buffet.
16:08 09 Jun 17
Good food, fast service considering the Mother's Day crowd
18:00 04 Apr 17
I always have a great time here. The food is always htot and good. Love the catfish and loaded mashed potatoes. Been eating here for a long time and manager Sandy is a treat to see, she's the best....
12:26 04 Apr 17
Meat is about average for this kind of restaurant, although the hot bar and desert bar are outstanding! All in all....good food for a decent price. I would recommend it!
03:43 16 Mar 17
The best buffet I've ever had. Not the biggest though. Very friendly staff.
17:09 15 Mar 17
We had a great experience here! Wait staff were excellent and the food was perfect. It was a great way to spend Valentine's day!
