This is the first review of a restaurant I have ever written, and I am writing this because I was so very disappointed with the meal I received for pick up tonight. First of all, the service was terrible. Secondly, the food was unacceptable-- we ordered, among other things, the chili, and two types of fish, with mac & cheese... More

Cute, festive and clean restaurant. My son enjoyed a grilled cheese and grapes served in an airplane. Our server was friendly and outgoing.

You can't miss this place. It's a polka dotted building with multicolored chairs made out of wheel rims at the entrance. Good omelets, sandwiches, salads and main dishes. Everything I've had here has been tasty. Save room for dessert. The cheesecakes have walnut crust and are amazing. There is an ice cream dish that is so huge it comes out... More

Came here with my(at the time) girlfriend (now wife) a while back and tried (and failed) to conquer one of their monstrous banana splits. Just a week ago we held our rehearsal dinner in the back room. It was some of the best food I've ever eaten. You can never go wrong with chicken quesadillas. Sadly, the restaurant's Facebook page...

The Poky Dot is a cute diner but the cost of the food, for the portions you get, is insane. I purchased a pork bbq sandwhich with fries and it was $8.99. The sandwhich was a good size but the amount of fries I recieved was terrible. I asked for slaw on the bbq and I was charged an extra... More
