We went with a large group. Got in right away. Steak was actually very good. It is only 4 oz but the Buffett is very large with tons of options. Salad, sides, pasta, lasagna, mashed potatoes, chicken wings, nachos, you name it!

Most accomodation in US is room only leaving you the option to look around for breakfast. We found the Ponderosa to be really good. You pay on-entry, I think it was $6.50 but there are discount coupons available in hotel foyers etc. On entry, you order you Coffee/Tea and then help yourself to the buffet, which has EVERYTHING you can...

Excellent food!! Steak and fried shrimp was very tasty. The bar has plenty of extra selections to start your meal including salad bar (but be sure to save room for your actual dinner) The price is fair but don't expect to be cheap, as it's good food so you will pay for it. 4 adults and 2 kids and with...

Once you walk in you are greeted with a great aroma of food being cooked.. The sounds of sizzling meat cooked right in front of your face to your taste. Mountains of buffet food of 5 star quality right there.. Then comes the desert and endless chocolate liquid to pour all over your cakes or sweets or crepe or waffle... More

Called in for coffee on the way to the airport. The service and staff were an absolute credit to the place. Willie served us with such a great welcome and kept filling us up. Looked after us really well. The breakfast buffet choice and quality was outstanding. This may not be a high end restaurant that a lot of tourists... More

Pretty good food, it was quite impressive, we didn't have too much faith on it until we went inside and saw the menu variety and the huge salad buffet that had not just salads but all kinds of other foods you could serve yourself. pretty much economic. It was close to our hotel so the placement was convenient.

We went to the breakfast buffet at 9 am, and it was fresh, and the selection was varied and very tasty. But the true gem of this place was our server Alda. She was the only waitstaff on schedule, yet she was running all over to make sure everyone was happy. She made this a definite return to place. And... More
