Pleasant with good choices

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

Visiting FSU and found this spot. We each ordered something different and it was excellent. I was not feeling well and chose the pot roast for comfort food. It was DELICIOUS!! The interior is a fun atmosphere and the servers were willing to answer questions. We also witnessed a local young man give a Prom-posal there. ;)

This place has THE worst service! Their food isn't even really worth the wait, and it's overpriced. It's run by teenagers who have little concept of good service. This evening took the cake for me. My husband and I have come here often, with the service getting worse each visit. Every time we're told to sit wherever. We wanted a... More

My daughter and I had a wonderful experience at the Poky Dot! An authentic and colorful 50s-60s diner atmosphere with little things to look at in every nook and cranny of the restaurant. Attention to detail didn't end with décor! We ordered milkshakes which were made with hard ice cream (and not a pre-made mix), topped with candy syrup, sprinkles... More
