This was the same quality you could expect from any ponderosa location. The buffet was well stocked and tended and our steaks were cooked perfectly.

Ate here and was unsure at first because the Ponderosa in Ripley, WV is a joke. But the one here in Carrollton, OH is great. In parking lot of Days Inn. Great food, great service. Lots of choices on buffet.

The Ponderosa is the best steakhouse. I do not know of others in Ohio. We always eat there when we are in Carrollton, Ohio. They have a great variety of food, so if you are staying in the area several days you can always eat there and get a great selection of main courses, salads, vegetables breads and desserts. Our...

We had traveled 500 miles, and were looking forward to the buffet, the salad bar was so good and plentiful, that I could not eat anymore but my husband tried four items from the meat section and enjoyed every bite. Service was good, but a buffet made it easy on our waitress, she kept our drinks full and checked on... More

Excellent Buffet Breakfast, friendly Service, clean but the best part was the buffet. The choice of food was huge. Hot dishes were well prepared and delicious. The staff was right there to replenish the dishes. Coffee was hot and refills were offered. Overall I was extremely pleased with the whole experience and can't wait to my next visit.

Because everywhere we planned to go was closed on Sunday night we went to Ponderosa, It was not bad for the price. Your run of the mill buffet - food was ok.

There are not many restaurants in Carrollton Ohio. Not many at all. I was hungry and finally made the choice and tried the Ponderosa. Lots of cars in the parking lot. I walked in and the young ladies at the counter were very nice. They suggested the buffet would be best. You prepay. Wednesday night dinner buffet was $10.99 and... More

We were unsure about going to a buffet but since this Ponderosa was highly rated we decided to try it and regretted the decision. The food was poor quality and cold. We will not return
