“Only get the salad”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

Got the Cajun steak. Was quite possibly the worst steak I've ever had...although, most pre-seasoned meats are...the staff was very kind and helpful but stay away from the fatty Cajun steak....

“Makes Ponderosa look like a 5 star restaurant! ”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

Took a group of 10 people to try out the Historic Mint. All I can say is people giving this place high ratings must be drinking a lot! This place is historic alright, it's old and in need of an update. Our meal started off with wet lettuce from the salad bar. The overpriced steak was terrible! My chef, me, put his heart into cooking a great steak. I did my best with a subpar piece of meat. The baked potato was outstanding and the highlight of the meal! Not one person in our party thought their meal was good. Take yourself to Ponderosa if you get a bad steak you can at least send it back!

“A rip off”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

Salad bar was very nice. Meat was average, but high priced. Sides weren't priced and the server would go to the cash register. And ring one in before he could tell you the price. The bill showed a mandatory tip that was never mentioned. The advertised 30% off special was short changed and the total was too high and the itemized bill and the waiter were missing . I finally gave up waiting and left.
Too many good restaurants around to go here.

“Great start but declining quality while prices increase, so/so atmosphere”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Had I written this review two years ago, it would have been excellent. We still like chatting with complete strangers around the two (huge) grills while preparing your food - always news about the snow situation, great hikes or runs, etc.... The disappointment comes from the creeping loss of quality in the meat offered, while prices creep up. The sides also seem to lose taste - so if you go just have the salad bar and the steaks - cannot recommend anything else. Prices now almost on par with steak houses where your food is "professionally" prepared by a chef, while here it's your own fault if it's too well done or burnt. Expect cheap furniture and lost luster from the good old times. Great for groups and for entertainment (at the grill as mentioned).

“Excellent!!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

My husband and I had the best time here. We have never been to a cook your own steak type of place. You are able to go to the in house butcher shop to choose your own cut of meat. Ribeyes are cut to order. My husband purchased a 24.5 oz one. He was very happy. They have a few seasonings to put on them. Butter on the salad bar. Bread for toast. They have a la carte items as well, We shared a twice baked potato. Nice salad bar. No boiled eggs. Real bacon bits. The staff is super friendly. Very knowledgeable on grilling steaks. So if you have never grilled, don't worry they can guide you.

We will definitely go back if in the area.
