BarFly's Review of Ponderosa Lounge (Jubitz)
Ginormous honkytonk easily seats several hundred, and its two Texas-size dancefloors are filled with boot-scootin'-boogiers most any night of the week. Ten gallon hats, tight Wranglers with satellite dish-size rodeo buckles, and shiny boots are standard issue for the multi-generational crowd.
Great service! Pool x4, sports on big screens x2, videocrack & games galore, throughout

They cut people off for no reason. I saw a person there that was handling themself better than most in there and they stopped serving them and couldn't give a reason why.
Howdy! My name is Mike and I am the manager of the Ponderosa Lounge. The Ponderosa Lounge is a live music venue with Country music as the core. Yes we have branched out and invited some Rockabilly and Rock bands to play off nights at the Ponderosa. However are weekend core remains Country Music and Bands and we have been searching for new Country bands to bring in and play the Ponderosa. I would also like you to know that we will once again be having national acts (Country and other genres) coming through the Ponderosa. If you think a band is questionable call up the bar and ask someone what you can expect.
The Ponderosa was a great joint back in it's day. Known to bring in some great Country Music National acts on their way through. Not only overpriced drinks and door cover, they have opened up their once Country Lounge" to some questionable metal rock bands. Used to a be a great place to kick up your boots. I hope they turn it into a Country Bar again so we can come back and dance.
I have to say it's a great place to dance, party with friends, meet new people, have a few drinks.
They're installing a new (much larger) dance floor this week (great for me since this is the lounge where I teach dance lessons)
They no longer charge COVER, unless there's a special show (National Act). They have great food, in the lounge and in the 24-hr restaurant.
Service: As always, could be better. It's best to hit the bar on your way in to purchase your first beverage. Then find a table and enjoy the live country music.
FREE Dance Lessons: Wed - Fri 7:30-8:30pm
Awe-inspiring mix of gap-toothed Vancouver white trash, blue-collar good old boys and white yuppy pop country lovers. The drinks are expensive and the staff is iffy. I guess this is the place to come if you want to line dance or whatever. If you owned anything by Billy Ray Cyrus in the 80s and 90s and think Camaros and Thunderbirds are cool cars then this bar is probably for you.
seems a decent bar 2 floors live music, however when I went definitely an older crowd a couples crowd and 4.50 for a draw drop top on a cover night
Just go to this place opening weekend of deer season. All the fat girls you can handle.
This bar has two dance floors, wide age range, and good drinks! You can't go wrong with a smoke free environment, live bands and great dance lessons.
We love the dance lessons with Ty & Andy. They are entertaining and make the lessons fun. We also especially like the smoke-free environment.
