The poky dot is a complete different caliber than most diners. When you think of diners, you think of red/silver themed similar to the set of "Happy Days". Poky Dot is pink and cutesy. The decor and inside of the restaurant is much different than any other restaurant that I've ever ate in. Enough about the decor; most people go... More

The Poky Dot has been around for a number of years other than a couple of closings for various reasons. They have an extensive menu with some selections being overwhelming in their portions. Their Ice Cream Sunday will feed five easily and the breakfast can feed three. They usually have a good selection of cheesecakes. It is certainly a place... More

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
