That didn't last long.  The Ponderosa Steakhouse in New Hartford has closed. The restaurant on Seneca Turnpike shut its doors Sunday afternoon.

When I called the restaurant, I just got a recorded message that told me to enter my 'remote access code.'

I can't say I'm surprised its closed.  My family went there shortly after it opened and never went back.  The food was terrible and the service was even worse, with plates piled high on our table that no one ever came to collect.
