“Not Recommended”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

We visited this Ponderosa recently with our 3 children. It had been many years since I had dined at a buffet style steak house. The buffet offered an odd variety of less than appetizing food choices. The only items my children would eat were the dinner rolls and the soft serve ice cream. It is unfortunate that this restaurant cannot offer more to it's guests being one of few dining options in the Herkimer area.

Good food great price and good service.
Their steaks, ribs seafood and buffet make this the place to visit. Their courteous staff makes you feel at home.

“I like to eat and the price is right”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

Ponderosa is one of those places that you would not bring someone to impress them. I got stuffed on the senior buffet for $4.99. A lot of the food is not something I would choose on a menu but since it is a cheap buffet, I just pig out on the things I like. The fried chicken, salads and deserts are great!

“Not my favorite place to eat.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2012

I usually eat tere every couple of years when I'm in the area because some members of our party really like it. My wife and I really do not enjoy eating here. This visit all of the food was hot but not really veryu tasty and the waitress did not give very good service.

Do yourself a favor and eat somewhere else.
