Lots of people don't care for buffet food. We found this to be very good food and service. One time we got steaks and they too very very good.

Nearby Ruby Tuesday's much better choice. You can get a better steak & an adult beverage with a great salad bar for about the same price in a much nicer atmosphere. Steaks at Ponderosa tend to be cheaper cuts and not so tender. Buffet has large choice. Desert buffet nice and is included in the price. Have them hold your entre for a while otherwise you'll be about half way through your salad when they bring it out.

The food here is always great, but for the price you would expect outstanding service. We actually had to hunt down the waitress to get drink refills, she never came around to see how we were doing, and seemed put out when we asked for a refill. They were busy, but there is no reason to not check on your guests.

Saw bad reviews for the Ponderosa in Macinaw, So on our way home we stopped here at Gaylord. Food was great! Hot and good choices. My burger I got was great too! Ate until we were all stuffed and the waiteress was very nice! Glad there is still a good Ponderosa around!
