Ponderosa Steak House is located on Niagara Falls Blvd. in Niagara Falls. They have ample parking on both sides of the restaurant.
The interior of Ponderosa was renovated within the past year. It's open and has good traffic pattern with both booths and tables and chairs.
This is a buffet style restaurant. The buffet prices are fair. You can get a meal such as a steak or grilled chicken for about 50 cents more than the buffet price and the buffet is included. So keep this in mind if you'd like steak (it's not a whole lot more price-wise). Children under 4 are free. Drinks are not included in the pricing but drink prices are also fair.
You seat yourself, get your own silverware, and help yourself to the buffet.
The buffet has a pretty wide range of foods. There is a salad bar, hot foods such as veggies, potatos, mac and cheese, meatloaf, baked chicken, rolls, 2 different soups, make your own tacos, pizza, chicken wings, as well as puddings, fruits, and most imporantly a dessert bar with self serve soft ice cream. Yum yum.
Remember, the food IS buffet food. Though this is really a great place to go when feeding a family with children.
One really neat perk is that they have a pasta station on Wednesdays for dinner. Chef Jim is there to saute your pasta to your liking. You pick your veggies, meat (sausage, pepperoni, chicken, etc), then chose a pasta type and sauce. My all time favorite is the butter garlic. We'll plan our weekly dinner out on Wed. for this perk alone. And it's included in the price of the buffet.
Ponderosa also has a breakfast buffet on weekend mornings with a wide range of breakfast foods. This is also worth checking out!!
Great family type restaurant. :-)
