Interesting little place to eat - decent food and pretty reasonable prices - diner-type atmosphere with good service and great desserts.

We live only 17 miles away, but it was a first for our son and his teen daughter and her friends to experience this nostalgic eatery. The food items rate a 2, the desserts, pies, milkshakes, and novelties, rate a 10, are the reason to explore this Fabulous Fifties Foodie!

Seriously - sometimes when you just get sick of trying to be healthy, tired of counting calories, sick of being "good" -- this is the restaurant you want to go to. A Fairmont icon for generations - it never fails to please. I recently got on their website (as in today 10/3/2014) and apparently they need a new SA) but... More

Great family atmosphere and the staff was very friendly. The BLT and Rueben's were terrific. However, the chicken pecan salad left a lot to be desired. Desserts are overpriced ........ $6.95 for a piece of cheesecake?!?!?

I stopped into the Poky Dot for lunch and was great with the fun, bubbly décor. We had a person in our party celebrating a birthday and it turned out to be the perfect place since they have fabulous desserts. We ordered the apple dumplings with ice cream (it was amazing and huge!) and shared it. It was a lovely... More

My husband and I went there on Thursday night, 8/21/2014 about 8:30pm for dessert. When we arrived there was only one large booth empty and one small booth that needed cleaned so we were asked to sit at the bar while the girl cleaned it. Well, that took about 15 minutes. We set at the last booth next to the... More

We have eaten at this diner several times; however, this time we preferred to order and take our food home. You always wonder when ordering to-go meals if the quantity and quality are going to vary from your typical dine-in experience. I can say this diner really lacks in both quality and quantity on their to-go orders. My husband ordered... More

My wife and I traveled to Poky Dot restaurant from Pittsburgh on the recommendation of a friend. We originally went for desert but decided on the way to eat lunch. The first thing that we noticed was the fun atmosphere with "the oldies" playing in the background. We sat ourselves in this quaint little diner and immediately got greeted by... More

My mediocre reviews are based on one breakfast experience. The pancake was good but the breakfast items were overpriced. Many have raved about the service but it was a bit slow on the morning we stopped in. I will go back to try lunch or dinner.
