Ponderosa Steakhouse in Geneva closes permanently

What happened to the Ponderosa Steakhouse in Geneva?

Since summer the lights have appeared off at the restaurant, which was one of the chain’s last locations in the region. And now as 2021 approaches it seems as though New York has seen its final Ponderosa shut down.


The Google listing for the restaurant says ‘temporarily closed’. However, it’s Facebook page says permanently closed. The chain says there are 28 locations in the U.S., and none are listed in New York.

During the late-summer months the location in the Niagara Falls/Buffalo area shut down.

For the locations that are still open, the company says it has transitioned to pickup, to-go, and delivery only.

The Geneva location has a prominent piece of real estate at the intersection of State Routes 5&20 and Pre-Emption Road.
