Huge desserts

Fun different place to eat. Ice creams are huge - service can be a little slow however and seating in the back is not nearly as fun.

The banana split is incredible. It consists of 9 softball sized scoops of ice cream for $8.99. It hand dipped ice cream is exceptional; I think it's Hershey's. My husband, son and I ate until we could bust and took 3 cups of the leftovers to go and still had only taken off the top layer of ice cream. They... More

I had never really paid much attention to the Poky Dot, but after a recommendation my wife and I paid it a visit. Upon entering the restaurant our senses went into overload with all the very bright colors and eccentric decor. Very unique. Our waitress was very nice and helpful. The eatery was also about 90% full on this Sunday... More

Very disappointed! I placed an order for pick up. The person who took my order told me it would be 35-40 minutes. i got there early after only 25 minutes and my food was sitting on the counter and was all completely cold! Then my order was not correct and I had to take it back in to get corrected... More

Poky dot is a small facility known for it's ice cream and home made pies. Service was good as were the pie and ice cream. Restaurant motif is fun. Kids will love it.

One word describes it "WONDERFUL!!!!" Food was great, Service was awesome, however the atmosphere was super, very fitting, lots to see and talk about, a must see and then go back to see again. Our almost 5 yr old granddaughter just loved this place. 50's style of restaurant. Absolutely worth bragging over. We will visit many more times an excuse... More

FABULOUS find! We found this place on trip advisor! It's a must stop no matter which meal of the day you are stopping in for! I highly suggest the sweet potato soufflé (best I've ever had.). Just be careful if you order a sundae or banana split. They come with softball sized scoops of ice cream-they are a meal in... More

This place has been around for years! When I visit, I usually go for dessert. Cheesecake of course! It's one of my favorites,and they have some amazing cheesecake. I also love their mozzarella sticks and vanilla coke. They make it the right way, strong and with real vanilla! The girls are always nice, and when they serve your dessert, they... More
