Good Servings

Great place to go for a experience in large amounts of ice cream and value for the money. Will go back again.

Ordered a hot turkey sandwich and mashed potatoes /gravy. There wasn't enough turkey to be seen when you looked at the sandwich. I actually asked ahead of ordering if it was luncheon meat style turkey or roasted turkey breast..The waitress went and spoke with the kitchen --they told her roasted turkey. Lie, absolutely a lie--when I actually found the small... More

We chose Poky Dot because it was listed in 101 unique restaurants in WV, and the on line pictures looked cool! Arriving for lunch at 2PM, the place was packed and we wound up sitting at the counter. This gave us a bird's eye view of the kitchen where the staff amused us with their banter. It was like having... More

I rarely write poor reviews, only positive experiences, but after today's breakfast at Poky's, I felt compelled to write something more. After a quick weekend trip to Morgantown for hiking/kayaking, I read about Poky's in a local magazine. So decided to make the 50 mile round trip out of the way stop of breakfast. Sitting at the breakfast bar, we... More

Food was very good, atmosphere was a fun cute decor, but the life size dolls were a little freaky. Waitresses were very nice too. Desserts looked amazing!

Stopped by while travelling and remember this place was on the 101 Unique Places to Dine in WV list. It is quite a sight. Bright colors and retro cartoons make you laugh a little. We wanted ice cream and got a little more than we can handle. We got Humongous Banana Split. I mean how big could it be? Nine... More

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
